“Lovely little place that lived up to the recommendations we had.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We ate an evening meal at la bicyclette. The restaurant was lively and very busy but we had a table straight away. The menu is not huge and not French but is good. Starter small but main course a good size. No room for dessert although the people sat the next table tried and failed to get through the chocolate mousse which looked good. Decent wine at a reasonable price. All in all we really enjoyed it.

“Very Nice Breakfast”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

La Bicyclette is a small French Bistro with a very good breakfast. In house breads and french pastries. Service a little slow, but OK.

“Great spot.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Very friendly and warm. The manager made the dinning experience extra nice. The food was very good and fresh. Prices were reasonable for the area and the quality was excellant.We enjoyed salmon, a gourmet mushroom pizza, vegatable risotto, and a marigretta pizza. The deserts were good, not great. The bread pudding was somewhat dry and the mousse was large,but not exceptional. I would return.

“great atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

what a charming place this is! Good food, but very pricey..... You seem to be in a French country village bistro, with loafs of fresh bread, sturdy wooden tables etc.
