The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The staff are very pleasant and helpful with any questions we had. My wife and I had dinner here just after New Years Eve. The food here is amazing! The snails, the beef filet with a green pepper sauce, and dessert were amazing. The prices are very reasonable. A new great... More

I got the tuna steak. If you like it seared and raw on the inside get this here (I don't think they will serve it to you any other way). I get tuna at lots of restaurants and this may have been the best I've had. Also, the french onion soup is very good.

We just had our annual dinner at Le Bistrot. Again it was excellent. This time I tried the cassoulet Toulounese and can report that it is a cassoulet true to its origins; a comfort food dish like those served in Carcassonne and Toulouse. The wine list has some good options and we tried a french malbec that was very good.... More

What a lovely French restaurant. On a cute, cobblestone side street. We had the roast chicken with mushroom sauce, pepper steak, cassoulet . All were scrumptious - including the French wine. A wonderful meal, not cheap, but delicious! Don't forget to visit the nicest bathroom in Bucerias before you leave!

Four of us dined this trip. Rabbit with mustard sauce, beef ravioli, onion soup and salad were all good. Creme brûlée and chocolate mouse for dessert. It was almost full and the service a tad slow since only 2 servers, one being the owner.

The goat cheese salad, the tuna and the steak au poivre are always outstanding. Prices up a bit this season but the quality and portion sizes are still the same. Excellent service as well. You can still bring your own wine or buy from their beverage list. No corkage fee. Total tab was 865 pesos including tip and of course... More

A great French restaurant. On our first visit five years ago this was a tiny restaurant with about six tables inside and two on the sidewalk. Excellent food and friendly service created Success and allowed the owners to grow; they moved across the street, expanded in the lovely new space to about twenty four tables and serve up great food...

Vincent our Nolitours rep from Guayabitos told us about Le Bistrot and the awesome food. He recommended the Pepper Steak. Little did we know how popular the place is. What a great little french restaurant. The hostess was incredible and made us feel at home, as if we had been going there for years. The food was Awesome, one of... More
