This is a small, simply decorated restaurant with great french food. They handled very well the food allergies of my son. The chef brought himslef his dessert and explained my son about each component of the the dish. The food was delicious and the desserts were great.

We were a small group of six and two of us were familiar with the place. The food is good and prepared with love, but in spite of it, doesn't bring this restaurant to the culinary top of the town. We went for the three course menu and two of us chose the wine arrangement for it. With the menu... More

Dear..., You got all the meat of the whole lobster, not just 4 bites... The fish had no seasoning of cilantro, in the whole dish not any cilantro was used... Our waiter was polite and certainly not arrogant at all. More

What a find! The food was so inventive and different and beautifully presented by attentive staff. Every course was a fresh surprise. Almost worth commuting from England to make it a regular treat!! Situated next to the water where you could have a river trip made for a memorable day.

This restaurant is wonderful. It's all about the food, wines and cheeses. It's relaxed, informal and offers great hospitality. They know their stuff and it shows. An inventive menu and a great and varied wine list. All in all, highly recommended. We keep coming back.

Bistro Bord'o is very delicious. There is an option to choose how many courses you would like, so my family and I chose 4 courses each and were not disappointed. I throughly enjoyed all of the courses and definitely suggest for fine dining to come here!
