We've been visiting this restaurant for a few years, we keep going back, the food is good, but the service is not so good. Slow, chasing waiters for desert and bill. As I say, food is good quality, so we'll keep trying it.

Went to the Bistro twice during our stay and had a lovely meal both times. It's a small restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Service was good and staff very attentive and efficient. The food was good and portions generous. The steaks and sauce that accompanied our steak was top class.
