Description: In the heart of Providencia in 2010, Bistromania was born: a simple idea in a welcoming environment mixing old-time gastronomy with the great French classics. By bringing a slice of France to Chile, our goal was to conquer Chilean tastebuds and to take travelling French palates back home with our gourmet dishes in the bistrot style.Gaetan Eonet and his team invite you to their world, a simple space that reminds you of home, to discover or return to those traditional flavors...Welcome and... bon appetit !

“Suprising Find! - Excellent Quality & Value”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I'll admit I was sceptical of a French restaurant in Santiago, but Le Bistrot gave me a valuable reminder about not assuming anything, this restaurant was great. The quality of the food was top-notch, and the food's level of authenticity was way up there. Better yet, a meal for 2 won't break the bank. Reasonable prices while not sacrificing on quality? Sign me up!

“Best french cuisine in town”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is not the typical expensive fancy french restaurant. Its very simple, though really nice. Service is great, and the food is just amazing. Salads tend to be boring in most french restaurants but not in here. I've tried almost half of the menu and every single dish is just better than the one before. If you like french cuisine, it's a must.

“Reasonably priced, excellent service”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I read a lot o reviews before selecting this for lunch. It is truly a bistrot so our expectations were met. If this was called a restaurant, I would not give 5 stars, but it is what it is, a fine little bistro. Lots of local business peple and a few lone diners grabbing lunch.

“IMHO the best French Rest. in Santiago”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We've been living in Santiago for almost 5 years, always looking for a good restaurant. And 4 years ago we've found this place-the original French chef, and great team. it is just the best! not too transformed from French to Chilean style, not too expensive (because the location is in Providencia). Excellent duck, "espargos", rabit, and not to mention the tarte tatin! Love it! and highly reccomend. Better during the week, as getting very crouded on Friday and Saturday night and service will not be as good.

“Good food, always a safe bet”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This French restaurant in Providencia is not extraordinary but it is always a safe choice with very good prices. I've been to Le Bristrot for lunch and dinner and I have to say I liked it more for lunch. The restaurant is very close to Santiago's subway (between Los Leones and Pedro de Valdivia), very convenient. It has a mellow atmosphere and very friendly and polite staff.

As for the food, the mussels are really good and the crepe suzette is absolutely brilliant, I recommend you order it à la mode. Dishes in general are quite large, so make sure you control how much you order. Salads are good, the shrimp were also really nice.

Le Bistrot is quite popular among all crowds so it is always better to make reservations.
