We were looking for a place that looked good and offered some vegetarian options and found this place.
We started with the nachos and really enjoyed them.
Then we had a pizza/burger and they were great!
Nice bonus: there is a free Wi-Fi. Presumably to write positive reviews on TripAdvisor ;)
The only question remaining: can we manage two pieces of chocolate cake???

I've been to the bistro several times before and have always enjoyed the ambiance and their wonderful terrasse. This year they have a new chef and have revamped their menu. Plenty of variety, and lots of good home-made food. I ate the venison burger, made with local venison from the next village over. The fried calamari was also great, and my wife had the braised beef and blue cheese pizza. We've always enjoyed our stops at the bistro, but their kitchen has kicked it up a notch. We'll be looking forward to our next visit!

Loved the rustic look indoors & out, the choice of food was exactly right for the area, the waitress and chef were so attentive and understanding, log fireplace crackling and blueberry beer, Awesome

I was sorry to see the other reviews. Yes the food was not 4 star but we enjoyed. The only place we ate twice during our visit to the area. The first night I have lasagna was good, my husband had the fish and chips which he enjoyed. We shared sangria which was good. The second night I had the special mussels and they were excellent. The reason we returned was the service and how we were treated. Neat old building and setting.

It looked just like what we had been looking for - wonderful outdoor patio and almost European-like garden seating and playstructure nearby. This could've been a great evening... But unfortunately the food is less-than-average at best, at way-above-average prices... The pizza wasn't quite done, the lasagne was just so-so which doesn't go along with the pricing.
But the worst was our service. The place was not empty, but not overly crowded and there were several service staff around plus something like maybe a manager greeting locals and regulars.
It took a long time for our food to arrive and then the pizza wasn't quite done.
Then, nobody came to check on if we needed more water or maybe order another drink. Also, nobody ever cleared our plates, until eventually a waiter from another station took them away. When I asked if we could have the dessert that was included with the kids meal he said our waitress would come check with us. Well, she never did and we got quite aggravated and ordered the check and the desserts from yet another waitress. Our waitress brought them but didn't think there was a need to apologize our somehow offer to remedy the situation. We just paid and left - seriously annoyed and disappointed. Nobody took notice of this improper service and nobody seemed to care. Really too bad, can't recommend the place at all unless you plan on being ripped off.
