I love this little restaurant and have been there 10+ times. They cook some of the best food in town. The staff are very helpful and changed some of the meals to accommodate dietary requirements of our group. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone

Along a small street in the darling 'county seat' town of Epinal, France (in the Vosges), four of us had a most delightful luncheon at Le Bistro Gourmand. The chef, originally from England, and his French wife run the restaurant with very little help. I had steak tartare, a dish I eat only when in France. It was the best... More

My colleagues and I ate here on multiple occasions during our trip to Epinal. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere and would recommend the restaurant to those looking for a nice homemade meal. The owners were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our dining experience more memorable. The homemade chips were amazing and a... More

We have eaten at Le Bistrot several times and experienced some wonderful flavour combinations with a real emphasis on quality ingredients which makes for fabulous food. The location is lovely with a gorgeous terrace, great hospitality and great array of wines to compliment the food. Service is excellent and friendly and there is a real sense of a chef that... More

Our first visit to Epinal and we wanted a lunch in the old part of the town. We were pleased with the service and enthusiasm of Mark (owner from Doncaster who trained in Cambridge) and his wife. The staff were also helpful. The food was good-what more can we say except to say we would choose Le Bistrot again if... More

This authentic and cosy restuarant serves some of the best food in Epinal. Its tucked away in the old town area but well worth finding and taking time to savour the food and hospitality. Menu's are in French and English and the staff cater to your every needs. Great value for money and a true feeling of gourmet enjoyment.

I've been in Epinal for business many times and I still do. I have to say I go to Le Bistrot every week at least twice either by myself or with other colleges. The owners are very nice people and will make you feel like at home. Food is simple and wonderful at the same time. Be steak, escalopes, duck... More

You'll be welcomed by the owners of this special place in Epinal... Hard to find, but located just on the South side of the church, this restaurant is worth the little trouble you'll have to find it. Excellent service, "slow" if you're used to go to reastaurants in US, but quite good in general terms, Prices are a little higher... More
