a big surprise to find gorgeous lasagne and carbonara in this restaurant we chanced upon.
As much as we enjoyed the chinese meals, after 2 1/2 weeks of chinese for lunch and dinner it did make a very welcome change!

If you are looking for something a little upmarket - for an enjoyable euro meal this is it! Housed in a trendy contemporary building bistronomy offers a fabulous european menu at reasonable prices

We enjoyed a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine - for 400rmb per person - the servings are generous and presented beautifully. We delighted in smoked salmon for entree - a perfectly cooked beef fillet for mains and the green tea tiramisu for dessert!

The staff are attentive but not intrusive . The restauranteur was on site the night we attended and you can just tell he has a passion for fine food.

I suggest you make a booking to ensure u get a table!

This group of French friends took over the former Da Marco and are in the process of renovating the place. The two main floors are a bit dark but very cosy, and the terrace is absolutely unique (albeit very hot right now) in Suzhou.

The food is a mixed bag of French, Italian, and Chinese interpretations. As long as the prices stay low as they are, I recommend the place wholeheartedly for people looking for a hearty French meal in Suzhou.

Good luck guys!

the food was decent. the wine I chose was not bad. prices not over blown like in Shanghai. overall, customer service was really nice, atmosphere was good. The only reason I rated average is because the food was just average. It was good but not memorable.

Sadly, this is the best Italian I've found in Suzhou so far. I felt the quality and the prices were better than others in Suzhou. It still isn't anything amazing for a real Italian restaurant, but I was happy with what I ordered, and I will probably go back to try some other items.
