I was pleasantly surprised by the «Bistrot Français» which is located near to Parliament Square. The setting is decently elegant without being above the notch. It is a place to enjoy good food in a French decor. The specialty is a fillet steak of 350 grams. It was cooked to perfection. The green pepper sauce was tasty and can rival... More

I prefer to go to local cuisine restaurant. However in this case I was invited. They claim to make French cuisine with some plates named to be "italian", This is not the case for the aubergines eggplants, that for the description should have been the Italian Parmigiana. Not true at all, not well cooked, not well presented. And also the... More

I took lunch at Le Bistro the other day after an extended absence from the city. Just like old times I was greeted by the proprietor Monsieur Guy at the door where we chatted for a moment or two. The restaurant has lost none of its charm, and it remains a great place for a meal, drink or snack especially... More

Came here for coffee, drinks and desert in mid afternoon. Coffee was good and our flaming desert was terrific. However, it was a hot day; and there was no air conditioning inside, and the room was way too warm. No breeze outside, and the patio was under the afternoon sun. It had wifi, but very slow. Staffs knew very little... More

It's very uncommon to find this type of food in Mongolia. I had a steak tartare I really enjoyed even if a few ingredients were missing. I don't like capers to much so I didn't care. My wife had duck magret. It was unfortunately not cooked properly. It wasn't seared well and instead of "rosé" it was full of water.... More

We went a couple of times to the bistro for both drinks under the patio and dinner indoor. The patio is very nice and at this time of the year the weather is perfect to spend quality time drinking a fresh draft beer or a glass of wine. It is a smoker frendly place too. Dinner indoor is more formal.... More

be it for a decent meal indoors or a light meal or drink outdoors, Le Bistro Francais offers many good choices. during summertime it's relaxing to sit outdoors and watch the busy life passing by.

After days of horseback riding and camping in remote northern Mongolia, it was very appreciated to return to a delicious multi-course dinner at Le Bistro Francais. Good quality at a reasonable price.

At 35 000 MNT, you will enjoy a delicious Chateaubriand. Choose the Moelle sauce or pepper. Served with a choice of gratin dauphinois or French Fries, and salad. The meat was super tender. Very nice in summer to sit on the terrace. The best French restaurant of UB. Very food also the mix cold cut as a starter, I recommend... More
