New owners doing a great job of carrying on the performance which earns top reviews.
We had a fantastic evening, great food and really lush Rioja. Service was timed just right for us and whilst attentive, was never too much. Keep it up!

We went here on Saturday evening and it was brilliant! The restaurant is small but very comfortable, the food was delicious accompanied by outstanding service, even though it was very busy we wanted for nothing. The music was fabulous and the Irish coffees out of this world a must try for everyone.

I was looking for some where new to take the friends we were visiting over the weekend. We choose Bistro Fifty 3 after reading some of the reviews on trip advisor. What a great find it proved to be.
The warm welcome when we arrived set the tone for the evening. Once we were seated we met our waitress, and what a gem she is, as good as any waitress I have ever encountered.
The food proved to be excellent, with no complaints from my friends (which was the first time in over 10 years).
Overall this is great little place to eat, with fantastic service and really nice people.
I would recommend it to everyone.

We sought out Bistro Fifty 3 tonight solely on the basis of the reviews and we were not disappointed! From the outside it wasn't what we had anticipated and it looked worryingly quiet but we overrode out doubts and went in and how glad we were. Great food, great service and the place filled up fast. A real gem.

No, its not a spelling mistake, the soups are very special. Unfortunately, if you don't want soup the other choice of starters is poor so I can only rate it 4. Plenty to choose from on main courses, and quantities are good. Well worth a visit.

May we first of all thankyou for your review and your recommendation to visit our restaurant. That being said I was a little confused by your comment on our starters? We do have a choice of over 10 different starters ranging from chicken chorizo skewers, various garlic breads &olives, prawns, garlic mushrooms,caeser salad,bruchetta,pate,skins & dips and of course a soup of the day. All I can think of is maybe you had the tea time specials where there is the choice of only 5 starters? I realy do appreciate your feedback as we always want to improve our restaurant,once again thankyou.
