My wife and I were looking for a fine dining experience on The Mount. We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. I had the beef and she had the fish. Overall the meal was ok and the service was very attentive.

My husband and I were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary and decided to dine at this lovely restaurant, and I'm glad we did. The food was absolutely divine. I would definitely return. If you get a chance to go here, try the lamb trio which was delicious.

Don't let the "Bistro" name fool you. This is a great place to eat. Excellent service and award winning food. You will be surprised at the prices too, very reasonable.

We always had an intention to try this restaurant but the actual trying was a long time coming. Always heard it was highly recommended but also highly priced. Anyway, finally got there. Busy for a mid-week evening which is a good sign. Has a nice ambience. Service was great although a very long wait for the mains. The menu contains... More

We booked a party of 6 plus a toddler. We were seated promptly A Highchair was provided without prompting. An extremely busy restaurant at this time of the year (February). The wait staff was most courtesy and attentive. The food was delicious, a memorable evening was enjoyed by all.
