“Never fails to delight.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We chose our favourite restaurant in Skipton for a celebratory family lunch last Saturday. My husband and I have been to Le Bistro on numerous occasions but for the other 5 members of our party it was their first visit even though they have heard us praise this lovely French Bistro several times. We had three menus to choose from so there was a wide choice. We usually eat downstairs but because there were 7 people in our party, we were given a table upstairs. The restaurant was very busy and the 3 staff were running around like headless chickens but they did a superb job even though we had to ask for a jug of water several times. The same staff were running the bar. Food absolutely fantastic, cooked to perfection. Staff polite and obliging, especially the young gentleman who was a gentleman with a very pleasant personality.Don't just take my word for my review, go there and experience a french atmosphere, superb food and a memorable visit, you won't be disappointed. Also open for morning coffee and a light delicious lunch at special prices. I cannot comment on families with children because I haven't seen any children when we have been there. I can't wait to return.

“Best risotto ever!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Went for Sunday lunch and had the best risotto (roast chicken breast with asparagus, chorizo and spring onion risotto) I have ever tasted (and as a big risotto fan, I've tasted a lot). My fellow diners had the beef bourguigon and coq au vin - equally excellent. The staff were really helpful and thoughtful and the restaurant had a relaxed and amiable atmosphere. Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend Le Bistro. I'm confident we'll be back!

“Lunch Yesterday”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Well we finally got there after having to cancel on Wednesday. This was one of the best lunches I have ever had. The decor is lovely the staff very friendly but the food wow. I had the Morrocan lamb and veg broth it was fantastic followed by the Hallibut again brilliant. My wife had Alsatian pizza bread lucky for me it was too big for her so I got some. I think I will have it next time. She then had Chicken breast in a risotto which looked lovely although I did not get to taste that. All this plus 2 pints of Landlord. What could be better? Nothing, we will be back. Thanks to all concened at Le Bistro des Amis
