Have eaten here before, but I think there is a new chef. It was very good, fresh and reasonable priced. The only thing I would recommend is maybe they dim the lights- it was very bright and took aware from the atmosphere.

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat and a local person suggested this place. Our initial opinion on arrival was not good, but when our food arrived it was splendid. It is an unpretentious place with good freshly prepared meals.

Recommended by the locals, last minute, walk-in for dinner. A bit of delay for main meals to arrive — however, worth the wait! Loved the Chef's menu! Well-prepared, good portions and creative menu items. The ambiance is casual, comfortable but meals are fine dining.

A varied menu of well prepared fare that changes so it never gets boring. From Curry dishes, to Italian, to Seafood, it is always well prepared. When you hav to close your eyes to savour the flavour of your meal, you are truly Dining and not just eating. Their bar is well stocked including several Micro-Brewers to compliment their fine...

The Bistro provides a great option for local dining or visitors to the village to sit and relax in a comfortable setting. The food is always of an excellent quality and very well presented. The staff is very personable and provides a relaxed service. Overall a great experience.

We were out for a drive on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and stopped to stroll around the little town of Erin. We passed the Bistro Riviere and the sound of live music from the back patio overlooking the river caught our attention. While we were not hungry, we decided to sit down and enjoy a beverage. I ordered a Beaus... More

We were going to another restaurant in town (online said they were open, get there and it's deserted). Spoke to pedestrians who recommended Bistro. Well, what they don't spend on "interior decor", they more than made up with the food. The decor is more suited to a pub than "fine dining" but don't let that put you off. Drinks came... More
