A lovely restaurant with attentive service and excellent food. We booked in advance - something I’d recommend as it got busy - and sat in the garden. It was lovely to be outside and I don’t think many places nearby have the option in the way this place does.

The food was magnificent - the steak was excellent as was the chicken. We had most of the starters between us and all were good. The house dessert was superb and generous - as was all of the food portions. Service was relaxed, friendly and helpful - I don’t like being hovered over and they timed everything just right. We were allowed to savour everything and there was no rush - essential in the heat! Great wine suggestion as well.

We wandered into this little bistro after having walked out of the much more expensive restaurant up the road. What a difference! The staff were really friendly and they had no trouble catering for the vegetarian in our group. The outside tables in the garden were like eating out in a friend's back yard, and with such informaility we were not expecting much from the food. What a surprise! The food was tasty and stylishly presented, brilliant service including a good wine recommendation within our budget. We will be back!

We made our reservation the same morning to ensure an outside table in the garden, always a smart move.

Service was a bit slow, but very polite and gave good ad use on the wine.

The meat (steak and duck) were slightly undercooked, as is common in France. Also the steak was not as tender as expected.

The cheese plate was excellent with the remaining wine.

They will turn you away even if they have space as happened to us on July 14 , 2018.
While I cannot comment on the food, the attitude left a LOT to be desired.

We found this restaurant strolling around Saint Emilion, and were tempted by the sign stating "tapas" - which was not representative of the menu of Le Bistrot. This is a typical French restaurant, and they had a very nice and varied menu with a superb wine menu. Razor clams were nice, foie grad starter was nice, cod fish was boring and uninspiring and the halibut main was also not top of the pops. Their wine, both from Saint Emilion and "foreign", were quite nice.

The staff started out very attentive, but dissapeared more and more during our stay. Wine was high point, otherwise nothing to recommend from this restaurant.
