“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Ate here 2 nights in a row. Food was fantastic, lots of choice and plenty of it and the staff very friendly. It's was the only place open over Easter that we could find, but we weren't disappointed.

we were a little disappointed in this bistro , at the time it was booked out they said just come back in about half an hour , didnt take my number and because we had a bit of a walk we didnt feel like walking back to only be dissappointed again , it would have been nice of them to take my number and offer to call me when a table became vacant

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were a group of six that returned the following night for dinner again as the meals the previous night were so good we all wanted to return. We were staying in Stanley for only the two nights.
For the most popular restaurants in Stanley (see Tripadvisor) it is best to book (up to a week out for the top ones).
The seafood plate was the most popular with our group. The service was casual & maybe could of been a bit more attentive each night.
It was too cool to eat on the deck facing the sea but that would be lovely during the summer.
The desserts were big servings.
I would go again.

The restaurant was packed with groups and families. The quick service and good cooking makes it a popular restaurant in Stanley. There is a large selection of items on the menus including fresh seafood.
