We ate lunch here, then dinner, then came back for eggs benedict on Sunday morning -- it is THAT GOOD!

Although very small inside, we were able to sit all six together. The breakfast was fantastic and lots of food given. I'd definitely recommend this place before leaving the island.

Had a very nice lunch at the Bistro w/my other. Small menu but really tasty options, something for everyone and great tasting soups. Cozy get a way spot.

I would recommend this place for lunch more than dinner. The "dining room" is the smallest of any place I have ever eaten in. It's the size of a small bedroom, with a handful of tables set close together. No tablecloths, very casual and informal. The service is usually done by a single waitress, due to the small size. It...

This is tiny, whole in the wall kind of place. There are only about 8 tables with simple but quaint decor. They do not serve alcohol but you can BYOB. My wife, daughter and I stopped here for lunch and we all agreed that it was ONE of the best lunches out EVER. The server was friendly and efficient. HIGHLY... More

We chose to have our anniversary dinner there. The food was very good. The place very small. Make sure to make reservations.

My husband and I had the most bizarre experience at the Centre Street Bistro on Nantucket Sunday night, Oct. 9, 2016. When we arrived to have dinner the woman in the front folding napkins said "what can I do for you?" I said we'd like to be seated for dinner." She said "we don't open until 5:30." My husband said...

We discovered this while walking by in the morning and we were so glad we did. From the first phone call for reservations, the people were very friendly. The small space was intimate and comfortable. We are concerned about noise in restaurants and this setting was great. Our meals were delicious and we hope to be back!

Very small space, and BYOB. But good food and service. Really, more 3.5 stars than 4, but don't mind rounding up.
