Lunched upstairs in the restaurant. Service was friendly, quick and efficient. The ambience was inviting, and the menu varied. Hope to revisit again soon.

We chanced on this restaurant on the strength of its trip advisor rating, and have to say that the collective wisdom of all the positive reviews was spot on. This is a lovely French bistro with a charming French hostess, a great menu, and served the best risotto I've ever eaten. We were looking for a nice lunch and Le... More

I make a bee-line for this little piece of France every time I visit Skipton. Having a French owner, the food is superb, typical French cuisine. As I usually visit around lunch time the Croque Madam is always my choice, as I spend a fair amount of my time working in France, this certainly is the best food outside of... More

We stumbled across Le Bistro des Amis, whilst wondering around Skipton, the French feel of the exterior menu peaked our interest and we decided to pop in for lunch. Nearly 3 hours later we came back out full to the gills and very happy with the whole experience. There were choices on the menu for a quick bite and a... More

This is a Spotlessly clean restaurant that we have visited many times for lunch. The food is really nice, home cooked and tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is usually very busy, so I'd recommend booking, especially if you need a downstairs table, as most of the seating is upstairs. Prices are fair. Eat here whenever we... More

Visited here today after lots of recommendations from friends and I wasn't disappointed. The service was brilliant, the food was incredible and all for a really respectable price. Will definatley be returning and recommending it to friends. Was good to try somewhere different in Skipton for a change.

Have eaten here at lunchtime on many occasions and yet again Le Bistro did not disappoint. Situated just of the High Street in Skipton it has a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. There are tables in the bar or you can eat upstairs in the restaurant. Excellent range on the menu from a three course lunch to snacks and sandwiches.... More

Perhaps Skipton isn't busy on a Wednesday. We booked, 4 of us, for 7:30 & were prompt. Only 4 others in who were ahead of us. We all did the double starters routine. I had scallops & things then the bouillabaisse. The soup not as nice as the yummee French version we love. It got to around 9:15. A guy... More

Located on the Main Street and adjacent to the town hall (and car park), this restaurant serves real French cuisine. A great menu to chose from, helpful staff and a cosy setting. Que la vie est belle! Not to be missed.
