Outside Bistrot is the cafe just outside the FH Grand Hotel Mediterraneo. The menu is not extensive, but it provided a good variety of choice from Italian standards (with a twist). The food was well prepared, served promptly and the prices were very reasonable

The modern styled bistro serves excellent food, their pizzas, from a wood fired oven, are outstanding. However, the quality mark for this establishment must be their Tenderloin, simply outstanding. Also, a nice selection of wine and friendly staff.

A nice friendly place serving good food at fair prices in a pleasant atmosphere. A better bet for lunch or dinner than its hotel next-door.

Eight friends of us had an excellent evening at this place. The meat was really nice, the best we had during the week. And all the waiters smiled and delivered very good service. Some noice from the road, but the food snd service made us forget that. Nice to eat outside away from the crowd.

As part of the package we had for the Andrea Bocelli concert, we had a welcome dinner here. In spite of having sent an email, the staff at the restaurant had only just learnt that my husband is allergic to garlic and I am vegetarian. They were not at all thrown by this, suggested alternatives and we had a great... More
