A first time visit to Bistro Le Coq proved to be a delightful experience. It was a frigid January evening so the warm and cozy rustic décor was a welcome sight after a brisk walk from our hotel. Our waitress was both efficient and personable. She spoke fluent French, which not only gave me the opportunity to engage in my... More

Does have dishes like the fois gras and other french staples. the fries are excellent. Only one or two tables to accommodate larger groups. Service with a smile and the food tastes very good. You can't go wrong between this one and east of Grafton.

A lovely French bistro. The menu was classic, and all the food was all very well prepared. The marrow bones were the highlight of the meal for me: a very generous portion (share them!) with a lovely blueberry compote that complimented the dish nicely. I had the duck breast and someone else had the steak frites. Both were perfectly cooked,... More

The title says it all. We went here for dinner a couple of days before Christmas, on a rainy weeknight. We were early but there were still a number of people in the restaurant. We both ordered the steak sandwich, with fried egg on top. It was delicious. The beef was medium well done, nicely cut---not too thin, not too... More

My wife and I can't say enough good things about Bistro le Coq. We are both living in Ontario and wanted to get married in Halifax as she is from the East Coast. In November 2015 we went to Halifax to scout out various venues for our dinner and reception. We met with the manager at the time, Emma and... More

Sat in the bar, loved the European atmosphere. Great personal service. Amazing wine and drink selection. Had the GNOCCHI it was AMAZING!!!! Best thing I've eaten in quite a while. Perfectly cooked, amazing mushrooms, luscious hearty cream sauce topped with cheese. Perfect execution.

This was my second time dining at Bistro le Coq but the first time eating inside. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and decorated tastefully a la Parisian. I started with their PEI mussels Normandine served with frites and truffle mayo. The mussels were to die for and I would have drank the sauce had I been alone. The... More
