We went to this Bistro since it was close to where we stayed. We found the food and staff to be excellent. Loved the upstairs seating away from the noise. The place was packed but service was quick, friendly and knowledgeable.

5 of us enjoyed a delicious dinner during our July visit to Newport. Service was friendly & attentive, food was wonderful. The prix fixe dinner is a deal at $20.95 & the 3 choices we had were all great. We all recommend it!
