I've had two wonderful meals at Bistro 46 in the last couple of weeks and only have good things to say about both occasions. The restaurant has a laid-back, unpretentious atmosphere with friendly, attentive staff who were knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the food and drink they were serving. The menu is geared towards seasonal and local produce and I... More

We were welcomed into here by the very friendly waiter who looked after us well all night. All meals were professionally prepared and were eagerly consumed by all at the table. My mussels starter and belly pork main were both lovely dishes and consequently I'm positive we'll all return very soon.

Different menus that included 1, 2 or 3 courses, priced accordingly as well as specials on a chalkboard. We all enjoyed our meals. The steaks were cooked as requested and the specials, taken as a starter or a main... More

From the moment we walked through the door the service was outstanding. Its a small place, which makes for a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and very well presented. Along with this, the prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be going back to try more on the menu.

Wow! What an exceptional meal. A small menu with a few specials added. In each of our courses the flavour combinations were stunning. The chef is obviously very talented and delivers a great plate of food which is served with professionalism and care by the front of house team. A memorable evening that we will have to repeat!
