Description: We are a modern European restaurant with a French twist combined with the best in Cornish hospitality nestling right in the heart of the beautiful port of Fowey. We pride ourselves on sourcing the freshest, local produce available and producing dishes of the highest quality. We have a lunch menu from 12 - 6 every day and then a more extensive and creative Evening Menu. Every Sunday we produce our Sunday Roast with a selection of meats using the same attention to detail we use on the rest of our menu to produce a roast Mother would be proud of! Top it off with our superb selection of wines and spirits, Cornish beer and lager, and you have the perfect combination

Can't praise this restaurant highly enough.
Service was perfect, food was perfect, menu excellent, atmosphere just right.
If we had a restaurant as good as this at home we'd be there all the time!
Make sure you book, they were turning scores of people away.

We went in late on the off chance as we had passed it many times and it grabbed our attention. We were greeted well and told we could eat later and enjoy a drink upstairs in the bar first - which we duly did! The Pinot Grigo was fantastic and the atmosphere was very cosy and welcoming - you didn't feel like a number. We ordered calamari, which was to die for. Our main courses were delicious and deserts divine. The Creme brûlée is highly recommended. The service was excellent and we spent £76 in total for 1x stater, 2 x main course and 2 x deserts as well as a £20 bottle of wine. I felt it was very good value and will definitely be back ! We tried Sam's but the Bistro gave much better service and value for money. Thank you - a lovely evening.

Had a great meal, came down To Fowey found the Bistro, and such a great surprise! For starters I had the calamari which was really nice, for mains pork belly and my friend had a steak it was nice and tender. Nice way to end the meal. Wines were reasonably priced. Staff were Friendly and efficient, will return in the future.

Just popped in for a coffee but decided to have a bite as it was raining heavily outside. Crab linguini really tasty and the wifes burger was humongous I had to do the decent thing and finish the last couple of mouthfuls for her. I know what I am going to have next time round. Thankyou
