We visited this bistro for lunch a few weeks ago and were very impressed with the whole experience. First of all the street is a bit grotty. but once inside the place is spotlessly clean, bright, warm and welcoming. We had fish and chips which were cooked to a very high standard, the food and the plates were piping hot... More

I went here for my birthday with two friends. The service was attentive without being in your face and the food, we all agreed, was lovely. It's not the cheapest but perfect for a celebration. It's a very small but intimate place - a great atmosphere for a romantic meal - I can't wait to come back with my partner!

The restaurant is bright modern and intimate and the service friendly and attentive.

We had the wonderful taster menu. Lots of different foods to taste. £20 each midweek. Well worth the money. Will return soon

My first time in this restaurant tonight, recommend by friends. Did not disappoint. Excellent service, food to set the taste buds wild, beautifully cooked, and presented. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Recommend to all. I shall definitely return. Well done Bistro 21. A reasonable price to pay for the quality food served. Delicious and plenty.
