“Very nice place”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We arrived early and were glad we did as they were full with reservations coming in. Lots of ambiance and charm. It was a cold rainy day and a cheerful fire was burning. The outside area looked very attractive if it had been warm. The food choices were different and hard to choose between. My salad was large and lovely with apples and roasted sweet potatoes and chicken. The pomme frites came as an appetizer and were worth the calorie hit. It is in the old section of town with lots of little shops around it.

“Best French Fries & Other Food”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Bistro 161 has been around for a number of years. The menu changes daily (I think). It's the pommes frites that keep me coming back. They are thin cut, crisp, sprinkled lightly with salt & parmesan, always hot.
They have daily specials. The last time I was there there was the choice of 2 different quiche and curried shrimp. All were excellent.
On a nice day the patio/arbor is a delightful seating area. Service has always been friendly and unhurried. Price per lunch is around $15 - $20.
The owner of this restaurant has recently opened Dolce Bakery, selling cakes and a limited bread selection. Mmm good!

“A gem in Duncan”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

This restaurant was a great surprise. My colleagues and I were looking for an upscale restaurant and this name sounded "fancy".

The restaurant isn't that large and the decor isn't in the multi-million dollar category, but the food is what counts. Bistro 161 didn't disappoint. We had an assortment of their prize-winning fries, spinach salad, sandwiches, and I can't remember the others.

Service was good and on par with the food.

If I ever return to Duncan, I'll definitely come back here.

“What a find!”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

The food is wonderful and the service good. We love the outdoor seating area. This is a great spot to have lunch when you want to take a break from wandering around the shops of 'old' Duncan.
