“Nothing fancy, honest everyday food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2010

Bar with dining area. Full of locals every lunchtime, eating the plat de jour, starter or dessert, and a drink, all for just 12 euro. If you don't want the plat de jour, or want to eat in the evening, it is probably not the place for you.
But if they are cooking the same dish for 60 or so it is going to be good. Nothing fancy, but tasty food which won't cost the earth, and rubbing shoulders with the locals, not unlike a roadside relais.

“A middle-of-the-road brasserie with moderate food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2010

I was disappointed with this bistro when I visited it in September 2010 with 15 golfing friends. It's a plain place and, although my starter was adequate, my main course was not. I chose spaghetti bolognese on the grounds that it's 'fail safe' but I was wrong. What I got was pasta covered in minced meat without any flavour - not surprising since they hadn't, for example, added any tomatoes or herbs to the sauce.

“A must for every visitor to Montreuil - sur - Mer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2010

I have been fortunate enough to have visited Montreuil - sur - Mer nearly every month for the past eighteen years. This citadel town is blessed with some fabulous bakeries, a superb cheese shop, a top class wine shop as well as a range of several Restaurants. Some are expensive and swept up. Some offer very good quality and service and some play at being restaurateurs.Every month for the past five years I have dined at the Le Bistroit. A well run family Brasserie offering good reliable and consistent food. Be it their Plat du Jour or "Formule Bistroit" consisting of a first course, the day's special and a glass of wine or beer for 12,50 €uros to an excellent range of dishes and their specialities of Couscous and Welshes. You will not be disappointed with the range and quality. Djelloud and Marianne and their family always give a warm welcome. Le Bistroit is popular with locals and visiting businessmen because there is a lovely ambience about the place with professional and charming staff. This is exceptional value for money and a must for every visitor to the region
