My girl friend and I both enjoyed a 3 course lunch for under £10. Good choice of items, well cooked and with excellent non invasive service. Wine price reasonable.

Found this little Mediterranean restaurant quite by chance while looking for somewhere to eat before a show.

The service is wonderful as was the food , excellent value for London it's amazing.

Only one other (again small) restaurant was better the whole week in London , I highly recommend and hope I find time to visit again next time I m in London.

I wasn't too sure what to expect from Bistro 1 but after reading the reviews decided to give it a go. WOW, I am so glad I did as the whole experience was amazing. The food was so fresh and we only paid £13.90 for a 3 course meal which for the Covent Garden is amazing value.
For the price we paid I am blown away with the quality of the food and the freshness. I had fish which was amazing and the other dishes my family ordered were just as nice.
The service was great. We were upstairs right by the window which made it feel like alfresco dining without being outside. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing ensuring that we were ok for refreshments and the times between each course was great.
I can't wait to go back there.
