Although I don't live that far from
St Albans, I don't know it too well so looked up on Trip Advisor the best restaurants in the area and this came up first!!
Don't expect Michelin star food but for a Bistro it is above and beyond what is expected and not at ridiculously pretentious prices either!!
The staff were very friendly and very helpful but the food was spot on!!
Two minor issues, it was a very hot and humid day today and there is no air con!! Also, it is unlicensed, a good glass of red would have gone well with the superbly cooked steak!!
Would I recommend to friends or relatives...yes!! Would I go back....most definitely!!

Excellent food served in an extremely friendly and efficient environment. Really fancied trying something new and fresh, really wasn't disappointed.

One gripe is portion sizes, but maybe I'm just greedy!!

Definitely coming back.

The service was very good, polite non intrusive but very chatty when spoken to. I had crab raviolli and it was very good, the pasta was home cooked and you could really taste the crab, then I had steak which was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth, by this stage dessert was out of the question! It is a shame they do not have a license to sell alcohol, they are hoping to get this if and when St. Albans council grant them longer opening hours so they can serve dinner. My only negative remark would be the seats in the booth are for those who enjoy a straight jacket!
