Bistro One never fails to deliver on taste, style and service. The staff are friendly, efficient and very attentive. Their menu has something to suit every one. Really good wine selection. It's a little small but it's cute I like it. Highly recommend

Had lunch here on a Friday recently and was surprised by how cold the restaurant was and the lack of people there - probably only 6/8 people in total for lunch. However, the food was absolutely delicious and of great quality.

We ate here on friday night. Having heard nothing but good things, Bistro One did not disappoint. We started with some wine so chose a bottle of Albariño from their extensive wine list. I had the fillet steak which was beautifully tender and perfectly cooked. The only thing that exceeded the great food was the excellent service, all of our... More

Hopefully someday everything will come together between Bistro One & myself. There's no doubting the food & service & presentation are excellent but being a serial "beancounter" I just can't stop myself from performing cost comparisons & when prices, in my humble opinion, are approximately +25% (with an added 10% service charge on top) higher than comparable restaurants then, perhaps...

Mark and his staff excelled with our party of 12 this evening! The food was amazing - the staff were great as usual and even though we arrived later than the 5pm cut off for Sunday Lunch they looked after us so well! A regular haunt for many around our table but the menu always excites and delights! 10/10 again!

Met up with old friends who hadn't been together in a long time and we so picked the right place for a night to remember. From start to finish everything for us at Bistro One was perfect - atmosphere, décor, friendliness and professionalism of the employees, and as for the food it was faultless particularly the risotto the like of...

Four of us went for Sunday lunch. Previous visits had been for lunch or dinner midweek. Overall the food was of the normal high standard and service was attentive. However,the portion of roast beef was a single small slice (there was a €5supplement !!!) I expected a better portion as the plaice starter was a generous portion. As it was... More

My cousin and I went to Bistro One for a catch up and had an absolutely lovely meal. The food was beautifully prepared - the menu is limited but in a good way as you know that everything on it is fresh, in season and prepared that day. the staff were excellent and very helpful. I would highly recommend it.

Joining 5 pals at a circular table was a perfect recipe for an evening of dining and copious chatting. We all chose the very reasonably priced early bird menu . It had lots of variety and was simply delicious,particularly the plaice. Staff were superb- friendly and attentive ! Looking around at the other diners - there was a definite buzz... More
