“Pretty and relaxing”

Very romantic spot. I only had appetizers but the beet salad was awesome! They also had a great 2x1 cocktail hour. Correction 6 hours from 12-6.

“This one won't last”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

There have been some outstanding restaurants in this spot -- Boca Bento was our favorite! -- but Old Town Bistro just doesn't have what it takes. It's such a great location and a beautiful spot, with great music -- too bad the food is just average. And they don't take credit cards, which is a really bad sign, particularly given the high prices.

“Two Thumbs Up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

We ate breakfast and a supper here. Both were excellent - food and service. Beautiful evening ambiance. Just a tip - a lot of the restaurants in old town don't take credit cards, so make sure you have enough cash.

“New Place for Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Opened this year by the owner of Embarcadero, another good restaurant, this restaurant offers another very good menu and food on Basilio Badillo. We had stuffed mahi mahi which was very good. The atmosphere is wonderful with art-covered walls. We shall return.
