I went to gourmet on Tuesday, January 19th about three days after its reopening. It's a bit tricky to find on a newly created upstairs balcony overlooking the courtyard at the Little Theatre. The menu was the same high quality but reasonably priced food that...More

GouRmet Bistro re-opened January 15th 2016 at our new location on the roof of The Little Theatre Oysterbay (located next to Protea apartments and St. Peters Church). We are open to the general public Tuesdays to Saturdays from 18:00 hours. Our new menu is eclectic but also includes some favourites from the old GouRmet menu. The setting is informal and cosy. Bookings recommended.
