Description: We offer a range of succulent signature steaks, delectable meat dishes and shellfish. Our grill prepares our meat at a temperature of 1800° Fahrenheit. The result is moist, tender, melt-in-your-mouth steak, accompanied by a wide variety of mouth-watering sauces from around the world.With a stylish and contemporary feel, Bistro 1800 boasts a culinary offering, rich with international flavours and attracts local businessmen and professionals and other discerning restaurant goers in search of a refined, consistent and high quality offering.Whilst the Head Chef selects only the freshest seafood, meat is the star of the show at Bistro 1800 . Owner, Paschal Phelan, brings with him many years of experience in the meat industry in Ireland and, under his direction, his team ensures the best quality by inspecting suppliers' farms to maintain the highest standard of their meat offering.

We were staying in the hotel and had one evening meal here.The steaks are the main thing here..forget the bistro stuff,,go for the steaks..they are A1.We had a salmon and crab soup starter which was excellent and then the fillet steaks with a mushroom sauce and a Rossini sauce.The weather was foul and not a lot of customers,so the waitstaff was relaxed and we had a chat to the chef who seems a nice and enterprising fellow! Enjoyed the meal and can recommend!

The staff are attentive. Limited menu. The set up is not cosy. Feels empty and cold. A Bistro is usually warm and has atmosphere. Food was ok. But its not a date night kind of place.

We stayed for 3 days at the Cape Royale hotel so naturally ate here for breakfast and lunch. BOTH meals were wonderful! The staff was terrific. We each enjoyed the breakfast options and variety of salads and sandwiches for lunch. Wished we had time to sample dinner, and did have food brought to the room for dinner late one night (which was also delish). Would love to go back some day!

I was staying at the hotel and tried the restaurant my last night. I only wished I had tried sooner. The service was excellent as was the food. I had a very good butternut squash soup followed by the smallest size offered filet mignon. Both portions were very large. The filet was cooked perfectly and was very tender.

This restaurant located in Cape Royal Hotel has a top quality chef as reflected in the menu. The service staff are very professional. The special grill produces beautiful steaks but the seafood entree was the star. The chef has other skills as well and was behind the microphone providing great music on one of the evenings we dined there.
