2nd time we have been here whilst in the city. Great service, great freshly prepared food and the best tea ever. Its just so nice and relaxing here. No hassle of bigger chains and a lot more personal.

We were recommended to this quirky little place, and thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Soups were thick and hearty; more like a goulash. Sweets were sticky and tasty, just as a sweet ought to be. Eating in the kitchen was a bonus. Very friendly and cheerful.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you liked the Bistro. I'm sorry the service was not quite up to our usual standards. I was away & my waitresses had an extremely busy week. They did really well...More

This Café is small but brilliant. Food is freshly made and Kitchen is inside the restaurant thus you can see it all being cooked fresh. Very busy lunch but worth waiting. Staff very friendly and service excellent.
