I've eaten at a good number of Portsmouth restaurants, but never Cafe Mirabelle (old name) or the Bridge Street Bistrot (current name). I didn't know of any word of mouth reputation but the Yelp and OpenTable reviews looked favorable. I must say, we had a delightful experience there. They had some cool cocktails, a mushroom crepe appetizer (shared by 4)... More

The same talented couple who operated Café Mirabelle on Bridge Street for many years rebranded not too long ago, with the result being the Bridge Street Bistrot. The result is also one of the coziest, most charming dining spots in the city. Not to mention the entire dining experience. For those familiar with Bistro Jeanty in Yountville, California, there are... More

We've lived in Portsmouth for several years and for some reason never made it here before. May be the best restaurant in this town full of great restaurants. Very comfortable setting and attention to detail. The food is fantastic. The duck is amazing, but everything was great. Service was perfect, friendly and helpful, our server (Hannah) added to an already... More

We had an excellent seafood dinner, well prepared, and delivered from gracious servers. There were 2 large parties, but the noise level was still low enough for us to have a conversation.

Very pretty restaurant with great food and service. Perfect for a quiet dinner. Menu is extensive and French. The dining room has a feeling of eating outdoors with high ceiling and branches full of lights. Such a pleasant evening.

Small and quaint setting, nicely set up. Food was delicious and a nice diversion from usual seafood menus. Service was friendly,efficient and pleasant. Wine selection is good and prices are fair and reasonable. A very good experience and recommend highly.

Hadn't been in a year, but the food, service, and atmosphere reminded us why this is a "go to" for us when we visit the area The chef/owner continues to create tasty, eye- pleasing dishes like the salmon and scallops I ate last night. My husband's daily Provençal dish with chicken and shrimp was also delicious. Too full to finish... More

We had a wonderful family dinner here last Saturday. The dining room is comfortable and welcoming; the tables are not stacked on top of each other. Our server was delightful and seemed to truly care about making our dining experience memorable. Highlights of the evening were a marvelous Coquiile St. Jacques and a very tasty Filet Au Poivre. The wine... More

Chris and Stephan Mayeux have built a strong reputation among locals over many years, and with good reason. Just a few minutes walk from the city center you'll find a chef- and family-run restaurant with excellent French cuisine, a great atmosphere, and first-rate service. During a recent visit our party tried dishes that included the Daily Provençal, the Filet au... More

With the great reviews and from my own experience, I can't help but think that with superb food, nice ambiance and friendly people, this restaurant would be sold out out every night if it was a block north on the other side of Maplewood Ave. Having said that make sure you book early at the weekends.
