After giving this restaurant a good review before I had hoped it would stay the same but it most definitely has changed. The prices have gone way up but more than you would expect for a small restaurant like this while the portion sizes have definitely decreased in size. The interior is looking very shabby with the stuffing of some... More

I have to say we "accidently" found The Bistro restaurant, while driving through Banbridge looking for somewhere to eat on Saturday! We were actually out for the day with a relation, who was on holidays for Easter. As we weren't familiar with the town we drove up the main street and we spotted a sign for The Bistro and pulled...

Visited recently for my uncle's 70th birthday. Booking was easy as always, and staff were very accommodating when my brother arrived earlier in the day to leave in supplies and the cake. Everything was brilliantly set up for us and the service and food was excellent as always. My uncle thoroughly enjoyed the fuss! Was just a small number of... More

We visited for brunch. My friend had chicken Caesar salad appetizer which is really a main course size and delicious. I just had a matter. We had raspberry roulades for deserts. Really sweet but yummy. It's a nice place though I'll lit and tucked up an entry off main street. Try it.

Ate here several times and food is grand. Nothing to get excited about. The staff are usually helpful and kind but we did go in one Saturday recently and we needed a highchair as we always do with our 2 year old and we stood for ages until my husband asked a young girl for one. She just said they're... More

Had a fantastic night last night at the Bistro. Food was such a high quality and I actually couldn't fault it! The steak and rib combo is a must for a Saturday night; steak was cooked perfectly and their champ is just the best! Everyone was just so pleasant and couldn't have done more to make it such an enjoyable... More
