If you are traveling from a big city, you have to adjust expectations in a small town (less than 900 people in the winter) like West Yellowstone. Something described as a French bistro might not be as authentic as you'd expect in the city, and the chef might not even be French or have any real French training. Who knows?... More

Lovely fresh food and welcoming staff in a great and friendly town. Our meal was the best we had during a tour of Montana and Utah.

A family run establishment with a great atmosphere, good service and super food. A limited menu, but nothing to be sniffed at. Something for everyone. A pleasurable meal, enjoyed by all.

I would definitely recommend this cute little bistro over most other dinner places in West Yellowstone. Friendly people and surprisingly good food! The only disappointment was the dessert (cheesecake) which did not taste like it was made from scratch. Many of the places in West Yellowstone are sick of tourists and are not very friendly - this place is the... More

Husband and I shared elk medallions entree. Came with mashed potatoes, blueberry reduction, broccoli, soup, and we ordered a house salad also. Plenty for both of us. Elk was tender, and very tasty. I added a glass of merlot. Total with tip was $62.29. Worth it. Waitress was very friendly.

Excellent food, not just tourist fare. This is a tiny restaurant with wonderful food and wine. It is a quiet oasis in this tourist town.

This was recommended by the host at the Alpine Motel for dinner. A wonderful surprise. The food was delicious, and the wine list, although small, covered what is necessary. Fast Service, friendly staff, and top notch food.

A family run operation and I wonder if it was Mom & Dad doing the cooking, but whoever it was, their food was outstanding! I had the buffalo tenderloin with three cheese tortellini and it was that good! I also had a couple of glasses of a great red. Only downside was my glass sat empty for far too long.... More

Creative menu, well prepared and presented food in a small storefront venue. Seats maybe 40 diners, with no waiting area. Same owners as the Euro Cafe. Service was good, minimal wine list, overall a nice dining experience.

The service (provided by the owner) and the food were great. Good opportunity to try elk and bison, if you have not already done so. Wine prices are good comparable to most restaurants.
