“What a delight- new found treasure”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Visiting in town we stumbled across this treasure of a bistro- and enjoyed one of the finest meals we've had in a long time.
The wine selection was impressive with what was offered -our server advised us well on pairing wine with our food- and the meal was perfect. The bread before the meal was toasty hot with a delicious olive spread and butter in an artful glass jar. We shared homemade vegetable pierogis as an appetizer and a salad w blue cheese. My husband had the lamb chops with a yogurt and dill sauce w mint relish and a chickpea purée -- and I had the Arctic char -- catch of the day. It was delicious w local asparagus and a potato / cauliflower purée. We had a homemade fruit tart & a chocolate pot de creme for dessert. Both excellent. The service was exceptional - the chef was a delight - very personable and working magic in a small open kitchen. We sat indoors but there is also an outdoor patio -- we will certainly make a point to return while we are in the area. You should try to make a reservation as the dining room is small and it was full the entire time we dined.

“wonderful meal”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We had our first dinner at the Gypsy Apple Bistro last night, a tiny and cozy place - every table full, but the 2 friendly and capable women managing everything and keeping us happy. Food was pricey by local standards (not for NYC or Boston), but beautifully presented and we practically licked our plates. I ordered a salad for my dinner and no eyebrows were raised, and diners' attire ranged from dressy to sweatshirts and jeans. All our meals had nice touches, like marinated fiddle heads and tiny onions, fried shrimps sitting on the scallops like little hats. The olive tapenade, served with the bread basket, was lovely and they gave us more when asked. The pate appetizer was really nice, not overly rich, and served with figs and pickled vegetables and mustard; the appetizer big enough for the 4 of us. I was glad pillows were provided for the wooden banquette seats. Several steps need to be climbed to the front door, (which when opened provided a gust of fresh air.) The food and staff made this a memorable dinner for a special occasion

“overall very good, with an exception”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sweet little bistro with a pleasant ambiance, especially good for meat and fish eaters, however not much for the vegetarian. Our lamb perogie appetizers were good to look at and even better going down. I would absolutely recommend them. My fish main course was was very nice but my partner's lasagna was a bit disappointing. The sauce of simple fresh tomatoes was uninteresting and rather flat, much in need of seasoning, but the generous amount of spinach and egglplant in it were appreciated. That said, for $20 it should have been spectacular.

“Small town excellence”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Delicious food and wonderful service in a quaint little bistro that has its own lovely charm.

After our meal we had the pleasure of meeting the chef, and realized our waitress is his wife. It was a pleasure to find out more about the team behind the whole creation.

Highly recommended.

“Great food.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The food is excellent. Probably the best for 20 miles around. Very small restaurant, you'll need reservations. A bit pricey but worth it.
