We visited the bistro late afternoon, mid week without booking. I was somewhat disappointed that there was nobody at the desk at the top of the stairs to welcome, and that the entrance itself was difficult to find. However the second we walked into the main room we were greeted by a bubbly and welcoming waitress, from whom we received... More

Have eaten here a few times as part of a large group. The first couple of times the service was a total disaster. But on the most recent occasion, the service had improved. The waiting staff were much more pleasant on this occasion as well. Food was fine, a little overpriced. Nice surroundings.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary dinner here and really enjoyed it. The staff were very attentive and were kind enough to make a bit of a fuss over it being a special occasion. The restaurant was well maintained and comfortable. The menu had a good bit of diversity. The food was very good and the final bill was... More

We ate in Mabel Crawford’s Bistro on the two evenings of our stay in Vienna Woods - the dinners were first class – the hake was particularly good

Called in here yesterday on our way to the airport. The menu was varied & GF wasn't a problem. The OH had a salmon & monkfish duo which she said was very nice , the toasted special was the norm. Nice setting & helpful staff also reasonable price.
