Limited menu, but adequate. Presentation was lovely. Service was fine. Room was drafty....do not sit next to the windows...or bring a shawl. Food was OK, but not anything that would make me want to come again. Basically, a nice evening but have been there once,...More

We enjoyed everything about our visit to the Bistro at Hastings House. The food was unbelievably fresh, cooked to perfection, excellent flavour balance, loved the wine I chose and the service was outstanding! Thank you!

Bistro: very good service - attentive, knowledgeable, courteous; good food - tasty Cornish game hen, halibut, red prawns, but not spectacular; ambience - English lounge bar style. All OK, BUT very expensive and so poor value for money.

We went for an early evening meal at The Bistro. We needed reservations, but because we got there when they opened we were able to pick our table. We chose the one in the window that looked at the Ganges harbour. The room had wooden...More

We returned after over 20 years and 30 years previous visits. It is still charming and a premier dining room. We had a nice nostalgic visit. The menu and food is expensive as previously. The dining room is elegant and service is pleasant and unpretensive....More
