My friend and I visited this bistro for lunch today, nothing was too much trouble, we had a long chatty relaxed lunch. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty, the service was attentive and just right, thank you for allowing two ladies to take a, long lunch in a very relaxed, clean, friendly bistro.

We passed by this beautiful little restaurant a few times on our stay in Machynlleth and decided to go there on our second to last night of our trip.

We booked to go here based on the reviews we had read. The place didn't let us down. Very attentive service explaining the food in detail. We had three courses each and can honestly say that it was some of the best food we've tasted. Beautifully cooked. Many thanks for making my birthday.

Booked a last minute evening meal as luckily there'd been a cancellation otherwise we'd have missed out. This place is a real gem with really welcoming staff and a small but interesting menu with specials blackboard. Food was presented very well and extremely tasty for all three courses and wine also very reasonable. Thoroughly recommended and we will return very... More

My teenage daughter decided that she wanted to come here for her birthday meal, I am so glad we went as we were welcomed with open arms, nothing was not much trouble and the younger 2 children had a lovely meal which was served by the lovely Laura. We will be back .

Visited on a Saturday night whilst in the village on a mini break. Atmosphere and setting of the restaurant was lovely, clean, modern yet warm, inviting and intimate. The menu was nice and ambitious, and the sort of food we enjoy to eat on a regular basis. Homemade lemonade was lovely, and felt like a decent drink without having booze... More
