Our family arranged a meal in the Bistro for my birthday. Although it's a small restaurant 16 of us 2 children and a baby were accommodated with ease. Food was delicious. Staff professional & friendly. A most enjoyable evening! Thank you.

Never a bad word to say about this place. Food is absolutely out of this world. Customer service is second to none. My favourite place, can't wait to go back.

Never in my wildest imagination could... More

Just back from a fantastic night at The Bistro. Mother-in-law wanted a no frills 80th Birthday celebration with her close family. We chose The Bistro as it was small and friendly with low ambient noise as she is hard of hearing. Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was phenomenal!! Mussels were delicious, prawn main courses were fab, fillet... More
