Wish I had gone there for my birthday meal the day before. Recommend you... More

Wonderful food. Lovely cocktails. Good wine. Warm welcoming atmosphere. Had a lovely evening here as a belated Mother's day treat from my son and daughter-in-law. I was on holiday in the area but would definitely eat here again if i was in the area

The food was lovely, well presented and delicious. The staff were welcoming and service was excellent. It is a good idea to book as this is a very popular restaurant.

Well we had to wait for a table (we had not booked) so after a stroll round the village we were back and assigned a charming little table where we enjoyed a delicious dinner, served with warmth and a smile! Good wine.

We had a meal last night with family at the Bistro . The food was excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming. We will certainly be back to eat there again. Really recommend it.

The first thing that strikes you as you enter the bistro, is the ambience. Warm, tastefully decorated and intimate. Secondly, Maria's warm welcome lets you know you're in for a great evening. Of course, all this is no good unless the food is top class and it is. Thank you Adrian. After our first visit, we immediately booked for another... More

We booked this bistro before arriving and we were glad we did. We had a lovely meal, lovely selection. Food was tasty even if the steak was slightly overdone. Lovely ambience and attentive staff.

We found this restaurant by chance, dined on Tuesday and booked every night for the remainder of our holiday (another 3 nights). Other comments about being turned away are mis-informed - your table is yours for the evening, so if you have booked for a specific time the table will be empty till you arrive. The food is superb, Maria... More

Tried to dine here on a Tuesday evening at about 6.45. There were three other tables already occupied with about another 4 empty. We were turned away, reason given they "couldn't physically serve us". We were a couple, not a stag party!
