We went here because of the good reviews and were a bit disappointed. While the staff was nice and friendly the food was just okay. We also wanted to sit outside and were told they were all reserved. Five minutes later a table was cleared and never filled. We ordered a ceviche appetizer and the fish was very tough. We... More

This is not the first review I have written for Le Bistrot du Port. I have been eating there for fifteen years, and my major complaint in the past has been consistency. However, lunch is tough to beat, and I strongly recommend the lunch special (plat du jour)l. Today, for 15 Euros I got two courses, 1/4 bottle of wine,... More

I love my food & wanted to experience something authentic away from the touristy hassle of lit up menu boards..After reading reviews on TripAdvisor of Le Bistrot my husband & I went for a walk to go find it. Tip #1- make a reservation! We got knocked back on the first night but made a reservation for the following night.... More

Walking by around 1:15 pm looking for a pace to eat lunch, we saw that there were a lot of people at this bistro, and a number of 'locals' playing cards out front after their meal was a good sign. When we entered to be seated, my wife discovered (after a dialog in French with the manager) that they were... More

Great unassuming restaurant - doesn't look fancy but is in a lovely setting on the Burgundy canal, with great simple fresh food, drinks and first class service. Having found this restaurant on trip advisor we had a much needed break there after a long arduous cycle from Chagny. We enjoyed the ambiance of the place so much - the lady... More

The chef is a master bouillabaisse maker. But do not miss his starters. They are appealing to the eye, very inventive in pairing of ingredients and delicious to the palate. If you are lucky, he may share his fabulous bouillabaisse recipes.

This seemed a rather down to earth choice down at the port with a crowd that I know frequents "in" places. So this was a wonderful surprise! Loved the atmosphere, being greeting warmly by the harried staff. Took awhile to get ones attention to order food, which was duly done (including taking dessert orders up front which was a bit...
