“Another wonderful meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Visited at Sunday lunchtime. Made to feel very welcome by staff fronted by Lisa. The meal was stunning and reasonable priced - washed down with a jug of Sangria - we stay in Southport periodically just to visit this restaurant. It can't be beaten.

“Always First Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We have been today for lunch for the Partners Birthday. As always, the welcome was lovely from Gino & Lisa - like seeing old friends. We had Taramasalata to start (the best we have ever tasted) and then 4 tapas. It was beautifully served and a fabulous mixture of tastes. The quality is the best you can expect in a lovely environment. We had a lovely couple of hours in this hidden gem in Southport.
We agreed we are pleased we do not live in Southport as we would be eating here far too often!
100% recommended. We will be back soon.

“Excellent! A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We visited Bar Med last night (fri 27 June) and cannot fault it.

The food is traditional, home cooked tapas and was delicious!

The host was probably the best we've come across, very attentive and made us feel welcome.

The bill... Definitely money's worth. Cannot fault the price!

On the whole it was a fab evening with excellent food and we will definitely be returning!

“A perfect gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

This little restaurant was a fantastic find as it is hidden down a little side street just off Lord Street and could have easily been overlooked. The food is excellent with a mix of Greek, Spanish & Turkish cuisine all freshly cooked and served by the wonderful staff including the manager/owner, Gino. The food & drinks are also very reasonably priced and the house sangria is some of the best we have tasted - it is Gino's own recipe and really worth trying. The night we went it was very busy but the staff ensured that the ambience and service was first class and that everybody had a great night. Would highly recommend & will be returning on our next visit to Southport.

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

We have never tried Bistro Bar Med due to the area it is situated down a road that you wouldn't assume such a great place could be! The food was excellent and the staff bend over backwards to accommodate your needs. The food was absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting southport!
