Went to the Bistro twice during our stay and had a lovely meal both times. It's a small restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Service was good and staff very attentive and efficient. The food was good and portions generous. The steaks and sauce that accompanied our steak was top class.

Finished with apple pie and ice cream and Irish coffee. It was... More
