Food pretty good, but the most unfriendly service I've ever come across. Absolutely terrible.


We have eaten at Le Bistro several times over the last few years. I believe they did go through a change of management but appear to be back on track. We have always eaten well here, sometimes very well. We really like the atmosphere, good range of wines, and a reasonable a la carte. The menu is great value, although a little too limited to truly be called a menu. I'm not sure I'd agree with Sion below that most of the food isn't French, although it is true that I've never seen belly of pork on a menu in France (but the best belly of pork I've had was here!). They were very open to feedback that we gave them on one of our dishes (which was fine but indeed could have been better) and I think are trying hard to ensure that customers get a good all round experience. I've only given three as I think some of the dishes could be improved for the price, but really I'd give 4 for atmosphere and just being able to dine somewhere where they owners are around trying to give good service, local accessibility and not overly loud!


I really like this place and it's my favourite in N8. It just has a great atmosphere and the fact that the manager Arnaud is back at the helm makes all the difference to the ambiance cordiale. The food is really well prepared and the wine list is excellent. I always come away thinking it was expensive but then I find their menu hard to resist! Go there if you are in the neighbourhood and you won't regret it.

Avoid the steak, billed as ribeye but what appears on the plate is a tired bit of rump that tasted of burnt fish. Really terrible and a shame as it could be a lovely place.
