We went across to Minehead to have a tapas lunch but we should have read the instructions first: no tapas served at lunchtime. Nothing lost. Instead we had a delicious home-made type lunch just the way Mother makes. Good British fare and it was a generous, tasty plateful. We decided on the way home afterwards that we had enjoyed it...

Lovely staff, with a great community feel. Easily sorted out gluten free food and very accommodating. Nice menu with lots of options for a homely lunch.

This Bistro is amazing, the food is excellent and the service good. Would highly recommend. Three of us ate here, we all had different things and each course was amazing, especially the home made ice cream.

We found bistro 16 on trip advisor. Tapas was very high quality, made with good fresh ingredients. The home made ice cream was exceptional. It's a cafe during the day, so feels like a posh cafe at night. The owner created a welcoming and related atmosphere. Not expensive, but not low prices. For food quality we give it 4 stars.

Thank Rooick
