We had dinner with a group of friends on the restaurant's special Valentine's menu. The choices were extensive and definitely covered all bases. The baby langoustine starter was superb as was the calamari, except that the asian dipping sauce was simply soy in a bowl which was a little disappointing. The salmon main was a favourite at the table. Sadly,... More

We booked here because the ratings on TripAdvisor was good. On our arrival we were not sure if it was the right location because it was in a little back road. We were however welcomed by friendly staff and a great meal and experience. All in all the food and service was great however not a big fan the location.

Best ingredients, delicious recipes, fine dining... you cannot go wrong at the Bistro. The wine-list and the service only enhance the experience. Best way to spoil the person you love.

We went there with great expectation. Unfortunately we had a noisy table behind us with people shouting on top of their voices. Although we had made a reservation and mentioned it on arrival, we got a phone call during the meal to ask us if we were still coming. This is at the image of service in general, trying but... More
