A long time local favorite, Verite hasn't lost its touch. Nice menu, decent wine selection, good service despite the restaurant being packed. Couldn't get a table outside, where I like to eat on a nice night, but it was ok inside. Well worth trying, if...More

No, narrow doorway and steep stairs to bathroom. Although they do have outside seating in the front, in summer.

Michaela and I opened Bistrot Verite in 2009, after working and travelling around France we loved the Ambiance of the Small, Cosy, Rustic Bistrots that you find tucked away in Provincial towns. With this in mind we have tried to create this in our home town of Southport in Birkdale Village. We serve Rustic French food but with a few dishes thrown in from around the world when I get bit Cheffy!!! Our Restaurant may not be to everybody's taste as it is small and can get noisy but to us this is what the hustle and bustle of what a Bistrot should be. We have a Great team of Professionals who look forward to Welcoming and Serving you. Bon Vivant xxxx Marc & Michaela Verite xx
