Not open every day. Need to check the first pen time. On the east of river. Environment is nice. Kitchen closes at 8 pm. Elegant food. Only been their once. But will go back if I revisit New Glasgow in the future.

I have gone to the Bistro several times. Each time it has been an excellent experience. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is flavourful and tasty. The atmosphere is a warm "night out" dining experience.

Always a fine choice for slightly upscale dining in Pictou County. The quality of the food is excellent as is the service. The regular menu features locally sourced and seasonal ingredients and the chef specials are outstanding.

Excellent dinner experience. Good variety on the menu. Nice atmosphere and professional tending. The daily special was fresh halibut and safe to say the restaurant is now on my top 3 for Nova Scotia as a whole. I'll be coming back here.
