Just had dinner there three nights ago before they close for the season. Beautifully prepared steaks for two of us and a special seafood pasta for another. We had the scrumptious hot artichoke and cheese appetizer served with toasted baguette slice to start.... can't seem to avoid having this starter it is so delicious ! Even the wine selection is...

Quaint, friendly, bistro set in one of the most beautiful areas around! Staff will go out of their way to make you feel special. Serves top of the line food, and the ambiance is unbeatable.

An annual scenic drive out with my sister. Inside and outside seating with quiet view of lake. Great burgers and salads and wonderful desserts. Casual but menu is fine dining in the evening.

We had kayaked around the lake and decided to have lunch here. This bistro has limited indoor seating and enough outdoor patio seating -- it is in the middle of a campground/ resort. They do overlook the lake but there is a road, swimming beach and large dock in the view from the patio. The food was average but the... More

What a pleasant, peaceful wooded area for a bistro! Service and food were excellent. Rustic spot for a nice meal in the early summer.

Tucked away from Cheney, and a bit of a drive - but totally worth it! We had Cheeseburgers and they were delicious. One of my favorite draws was that they serve a local Cheney Brewery beer. Fantastic staff, and a good view. RV Park gets a little crowded but still worth it especially if you get to sit on the... More

We went there for dinner. The Bistro is located at Klink's Resort right near their beach. The food was excellent. I had the special and my wife had the salmon. Service was helpful. They provided three wine samples for my wife to choose. They featured some excellent local wine and local craft beer. A small stream flowed past the patio... More

Same menu, so so service, and overpriced.The staff were more interested in entertaining themselves than waiting on the customers. I had the chicken and it was smothered in tasteless, pasty white???gravy??? They are coasting.

We stopped in to Klink's Resort for a few days while staying at another nearby campground. While the kids took advantage of some of the water sports rentals, we sat on the deck of the Bistro. We arrived around 2pm when their happy hour begins, so we ordered off their Happy Hour menu which includes a nice variety of drinks... More

Although the weather was HOT, our dinner on the deck was the COOLEST ever! A duo was strumming and singing while we devoured our fabulous dinner and drinks. Sooo good!! And then....breakfast on Sat. morning was a $5 bargain of the year: a thick slice of ham, hashbrowns, two eggs, two toasts and jam. Cannot wait to go back. A... More
