Anton's is located within the old Crown Pub, which is in the Market Square. This is a proper restaurant not a pub food outlet. Nice menu, well cooked and presented. Ate there on three evenings and had a good meal each time at reasonable cost. Anton's is one of the few restaurants open in quiet Wells, especially it would appear... More

What a surprise! We were thankful that other places we tried were full because this is a warm, friendly place where the food is fresh and delicious. Unusual starters - goats cheese dukkah and beetroot was really good.

Arriving in Wells in a bad mood due to traffic, and being told by another local restaurant "no tables for at least an hour and a half!" I was desperate to recover a lost evening. Happening upon Antons Bistro we were welcomed inside and immediately found a table in a room with a very relaxing atmosphere, soft music, serenity and... More

We called in today for lunch - 4 adults and 1child a sleep in a pushchair. We were welcomed by a young man who asked how many was there in our party. 4 + child and pushchair was our reply. "Would you like to sit in the resturant or lounge area?" We said that we would sit in the lounge... More

Very sorry to read your review on Trip Advisor. We pride ourselves on being family friendly and apologies you were not made to feel more welcome. The member of staff in question was addressing her colleague but it should not have been within your hearing and should not have been a problem. Pushchairs are not a problem in any part... More

We visited Anton's for the first time last Saturday and some parts were good but others less so but could easily have been improved. I ordered the goats cheese, beetroot houmous with savoury tuile. I asked if I could have a bit of bread with it but was told this would be charged for. With the starter at £6.00 and... More

I ate at Anton's in December as part of a very large lunch party of local businesses. The venue and food had been pre ordered and this no doubt gave the establishment the upper hand in staffing and resourcing. It went without a flaw, the food was of good quality, appeared on time and with a good level of service.... More

Anton's bistro is set in the building of the Crown Inn on the Market Place. An old building, it has been done up quite nicely to feel comfortable. The bistro is at the back of the building and you have to walk past the reception, down one step to a bar area and then you are taken through to the... More
