We ate here as a family of 4. We eat out regularly at top end restaurants in London and elsewhere in the UK so we are not strangers to fine dining or to paying what others may consider real top dollar for a meal out....More

My wife is borderline celiac and was easily able to enjoy a full and wonderful meal at Beach Bistro last October. The staff was very accommodating and helpful in advising her regarding the menu.
