The sign outside said full, looking we booked. The menu is small but sufficient. The food was succulent and tasty. If you are in Alnmouth book a table you won't be disappointed.

We've visited Bistro 23 on a previous visit. Alnmouth can be beautifully sunny and hot, and sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, at which point it's nice to sit in Bistro 23 and catch up with yourself
