Loved the food! Sweet potato fries were fantastic! The location was perfect for our condo down the street. We got takeout and couldn’t believe it arrived hot and delicious. We would definitely recommend!

We had several meals including breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon snacks at the Bistro. Enjoyed every one of them. They have daily Happy Hour food specials which were very reasonably priced and extremely tasty. Alex and our servers were all exceptional.

Second time here and still love it! Wait staff is very nice and love the sausage gravy and potatoes. Nothing better than dining with an ocean view!
