Small, not a lot of tables so we always call ahead or make reservations. Can be noisy if busy but food is worth it!

I have lived in Guilford for a long time. This small restaurant building used to house a Mr Donut. It was taken over by the present owners and made into a lovely little restaurant. The configuration is still somewhat the same, but the food is great and the atmosphere is certainly not Mr Donut any longer. A bit noisy when fully occupied and until just this last year was a BYOB, they now have a very nice wine and beer list. We go there for a very nice meal frequently. They still allow you to BYOB and charge a small corking fee, a nice feature. They have done a great job creating a very nice restaurant out of a former Mr Donut. You should try it when you visit Guilford. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. It is nice to see a little place like this do well. As my grandmother used to say: "they have turned a sow's ear into a silk purse!!"

Food is pretty good, but if your a couple they place you at tables that are in the main passage. The passage is narrow and not exactly romantic.

We had early dinner reservations at the bistro tonight for our first meal there. It is a small place seating about 50, on a relatively busy corner of Rt 1 just off the Guilford green, but pleasantly done inside. I had pasta with italian sausage, portabello mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes in sauce. My husband had pasta with olives, chicken, green beans in a pesto sauce. Portions were ample. We added our own excellent BYOB bottle of wine, all though there was quite a selection of wines for purchase. Service was attentive and quick. Our server stopped by several times to ask how we were doing, if we lived the food, and if we needed anything else. She offered pots of grated cheese and freshly ground pepper for our pasta . The restaurant was almost full when we left. The pasta was very good and full of savory items. We will definitely come again to try the chicken, fish, and beef items on the menu.

My husband and I are regulars at the Bistro. One of the best restaurants on the shoreline! We changed it up a little and had the pasta special. Penne with Bolognese meat sauce, peas and goat cheese that was al forno. AMAZING! My husband had it with gnocci instead of Penne and even better.
This restaurant continues to wow us each week. Thank you!
