Came in to Bistro 17 on wednesday night with my wife for our 30th anniversary and it was fabulous!!
As we approach the door a lovely young lady greeted us and sat us inside next to the piano(due to the occasion) then our waitress Susan came and introduced herself with a big smile and told us about the specials. We ordered a bottle of wine and our night started.
We started off with the mussels and a baked brie.Yummy!! Then my wife ordered the Snapper special and it was outstanding I ordered myself the rack of lamb medium and it was cooked to perfection. Mr J Samuels played for us and it was an amazing night. Sincerely recommend the place it was worth a trip and can't wait to come back.

I would avoid this poor excuse for a bistro. The staff seemed more interested in smoking cigarettes and comparing tattoos than waiting on customers. After waiting for 15 minutes, our waitress (that had obviously not showered for a few days) asked what a Tom Collins was - then proceeded to bring a concoction that was not even close (by the way the drink cost $9.50). My wife and I perused the limited and over priced menu, and settled on a rubbery fish that resembled rotten squid.
Bad experience / not a bistro/ poor management/ I'll never go back

Bistro 17 an excellent indoor/outdoor restaurant. Well worth a visit in a really nice environment. Several boutique type shops at varying prices. Have been going there for more than 20 years and always enjoy going back

Every year we make plans to visit a restaurant that we have not been to before. On this trip we selected Bistro 17 and it was a perfect choice! We initially thought we wanted to be seated outside but the music from another restaurant was very present and not what we were expecting for an adult evening out at an upscale french bistro. So we were very happy to hear and see that Bistro 17 had a musician playing classic tunes in the very nicely decorated inside portion of the restaurant.
Our waitress was very attentive and the food was superb! It made for a very nice final chapter to our wonderful vacation here on the island.

p.s. Afterwards we took advantage of the beautiful marina setting and walked the docks admiring the many different boats and a few yachts that were docked. Plus we made our way to the more lively outdoor restaurant to listed to their musician playing a more upbeat beach music arrangement and stopped at the Italian Ice Cream store for an after dinner treat. A perfect last night at the beach!
