Penn Cove Mussels. Perfectly done. Ate them while gazing out the window at the view. Stopped in for lunch on a recent visit to Langley and perfectly delighted with the food choices, presentation, taste and service. Highly recommend Prima Bistro.

Lovely view and atmosphere in downtown Langley. Great bar. Wish there were more meals rather than separate entrees and sides. Entrees are pricey Lamb is often featured and I don't care for lamb! Good wine list. Delicious burger and fries!

Wonderful restaurant on the second floor with windows that look out onto the street below. It is a warm and open space. The service was friendly and the food was amazing!! The steaks were cooked to perfection. The daily specials are interesting and so good. Fresh noodles, fresh mussels, creative dishes.....nothing disappointed. The pot de creme was divine! This is...

This place is fantastic. Four of us went for lunch. Everything we ordered was delicious. The menu was varied and had something to offer everyone. The view was great. Our waiter was perfect. The only thing...the hand soap in the ladies bathroom was gag-inducing. Literally, the stuff smelled like the most pungent old lady musk on earth. I had to... More

We went for an early dinner/happy hour and had a very nice time. The food was good (the warmed olives were CRAZY GOOD. 10 STAR GOOD) the drink options were good. A very nice experience.

Best beet salad! Lots of wonderful small plates and a great wine list. Perfect for a rainy day in a small town.

Prima is a great option especially if the deck is open. If it's a little cool, they have heaters and blankets just in case. The food is average, the service is great as is the location. A safe bet in Langley

Stopped in with our newest family members for lunch. A little gem in the area, some talent in the kitchen, friendly service, and many French touches on the menu. They enlist some of the wonderful fresh seafood of the region and have both traditional and nouveau menu items. The lunches ranged from a Reuben sandwich, to a hangar steak frites,... More

If your a foodie, especially a French one, and don't like pretentious establishments then Primo Bistro is for you. Located upstairs with a deck and ocean view windows this quant unassuming cafe serves the quisicental French bistro cuisine. We stopped for lunch 2 days in a row because we couldn't decide on what to try. Lots of small plates to... More
