Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went for a lovely meal last night. First time back here for a number of years. Blown away by the standard of the food, cleanliness, attention to detail and attentiveness. The food we had was tasty and hot and lots of it. There were 3...of us and we had 8 tapas dishes between us, which we were all stuffed afterwards. Gino, the host is so friendly, and always has been. We will be returning very soon. 5*More

After deciding on going out for tea last minute. Bistro bar med had space for us to dine there. We had been maybe 2 year previous and had been desperately meaning to go back and it did not disappoint. If anything the food was even...better than last time, if that was even possible. We had 4 tapas each, which is a lot of food but there was so much choice! My favourite dish of my 4 was the halloumi Ciabatta, my partners favourite dish was the chorizo and potatoes omelette! But each dish was incredible in its own way. Anything you try from bistro bar med is bound to taste unbelievable. Desserts was lemon cake and baklava, both was yummy but the baklava is to die for! The service from the start was fantastic, water ready on the table for us was a great touch. The cleaning the table in between mains and desserts was really professional, the staff making conversation about there menu is always so helpful and and last the complementary turkish delight at the end topped everything off. I would recommend this place!More

Even though it was a quiet night in rainy Southport, the evening felt like being abroad on holiday. The food was stunning, we were guided through the menu and told how much was enough, which is always our downfall, ordering too much. The food was...fresh, well cooked and stunning. Service from everyone was fantastic, glasses topped up, checking all was ok. Don't miss out on the Turkish pastries OMG!. Don't miss out on this hidden gem in Southport, situated not in an area you would expect a restaurant to be. We will be backMore

The restaurant is really nice, and we were warmly welcomed by a member of the team. They were so friendly and professional. The food arrived promptly and was absolutely gorgeous. The bread was soft and salty.. Just gorgeous and complimented the accompanying dips. We had...a selection of different dishes for our main and they were all absolutely beautiful. The owner Gino was a very very nice guy and I could see by the way he was talking to his staff that he was very genuine. The staff seemed to really admire him to as a leader. Never had an experience like this before. Just felt really good. Definitely recommend.More

I am sure you could fit the wheelchair b7t getting in might be an issue as it involves steps. But do speak to them and they are very accommodating.

Hi, I'm not sure about the vegan options I'm afraid. I'm sure if you contact the restaurant, the manager will be happy to help, he's very approachable.
