While on our way to Yarmouth my son and I were looking for a place to eat and this bistro popped up on his app as a recommendation. We took a chance and tried it out. It was a fiercely cold day and their hot spiced cider made that go away so very well. The food was excellent and I... More

We've always enjoyed coming here. We find the food very good with good sized portions. The service can be a bit hit and miss, sometimes.

When you have very little choice in a small town this bistro fits the bill.Very ordinary food with little flavour,choice or panache! A forgettable meal with pleasant but very inexperienced staff.

When we arrived, there was only one table available outside but we decided to take it. Really poor place for outdoor tables as your only view is the street and a small parking lot. But our real issue with this place was the terrible service. They came and took our drink order. They delivered the drinks and took our meal... More

We went back to Bistro East for dinner in October. The food was great but I was not happy about the coffee situation. When I asked for a cup of coffee, I was required to request whether I wanted a small or large. I assumed from that when l made my request that there would be no free refills. I... More

What a beautiful restaurant. The server was very nice and seemed completely not bothered that we had two small kids with us. The food was yummy - they had lots of gluten free options. Although if you're not gluten free, the homemade pasta was fantastic.

If all you want is a tasty pizza for a reasonable price this place is good and it does stay open later than many places in Annapolis Royal

My wife and I ate there (dinner) as it was close to where we were staying and had a very good meal and were well looked after. A lot less formal than many eateries maybe because the décor was more up to date and the waitress were all young and jovial.

We visit Bistro East a few times each year and it is one of our favourites. Most recently we had a light dinner that, overall, upheld our usual high expectations. My husband had salmon fish cakes and a salad. He enjoyed his choice very much. I had a small green salad and the prosciutto wrapped scallop appetizer. Salad was excellent.... More
