Description: Amble amongst the eclectic independent shops of Monmouth's Church Street and you will stumble across Bistro Prego. This atmospheric restaurant has been awarded its second AA Rosette in as many years, establishing a reputation as a destination for food-savvy visitors and indigenous foodies alike. Prego is fortunately situated to offer diverse regional produce, wild foods and allotment-harvests. For Steve Robbins, head chef and Proprietor, local and seasonal is central to the Mediterranean cuisine which inspires him. The menu is varied and aromatic: as soon as the doors open on spring days and summer evenings, tempting smells drift onto the pretty, cobbled street, infusing this quiet corner of Wales with Mediterranean savour. The frequently- changing menu, includes house favourites such as Tagliolini with prawns, cherry tomatoes and garlic, slow-cooked pork belly, and local game. Reputed for the delicious puddings and Welsh cheese-board, recent additions will also appeal to those wishing to enjoy eating out without compromising either their waist-line or enjoyment. Prego also offers bed and breakfast. This evolving restaurant is one to note whether you are looking for a special lunch, pre-theatre meal, coffee and biscotti whilst watching the world drift by, or a relaxing over-night stay.

“Wonderful Food and Delightful Service”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

On a weekend break in Monmouth and decided to book our Saturday evening meal after reading the TA reviews.

I am not sure that I can add much as it has all been said before. The menu was interesting - a rare place indeed to find stuffed courgette flowers on the menu. This is one of our favourite dishes when visiting Greece, so a lovely surprise and the chef did them beautifully. They were absolutely divine, crispy batter, stuffed with ricotta and spinance. The next course, cooked to perfecton duck with cherries and in an orange sauce with roast potatoes. Finally desert - creme brulee - simply perfect. I can see why this place holds the number one spot.

Great customer service with delightful, friendly waitresses and the lady in charge who took the time to talk to us on a couple of occasions. If I am ever back in Monmouth I will certainly revisit, unlike our Friday evening venue where I most definitely would not return to.

“Superb service and lovely food”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We had a pre-dinner theatre here ( couldn't be more convenient for local theatre) and it was really good. The food is excellent (and you can watch them cook it as the kitchen is open to the restaurant) and the service was superb. Will definitely be returning. Great atmosphere and comfy surroundings. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic meal and ambiance”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I dined here recently with my family while staying in the area, and what a little gem!! Hidden away in a little alley, not what you would expect to find.. but a 2 rosette restaurant with quality and great service!
Peroni on tap was great! Made to feel very welcome by the staff and the food was outstanding! This is a place I would recommend to dine in Monmouth if you are looking for quality and taste!
Thank you Bistro Prego for a great meal!
