The Bistro is, by far, the best restaurant in Bundoran! Lovely ambience, good menu and superb food. Would definitely recommend this eatery, especially for a special occasion. The staff are also excellent & I always enjoy John's enthuastic description of the Specials - he also knows his wines! Go on - treat yourself, but remember to book in advance.

Just visited 'the Bistro '. Waiting staff very attentive. Was told my first choice from the menu was not available, however I overheard the waitress reading the menu to an American couple and my choice was there. Food very nice, but not filling. Left still hungry.

The food in the Bistro was excellent it was to the standard of any high class restaurant you may care to visit. When we stayed in the hotel had all our evening meals in the bar part of the Bistro and found it to be a superb candlelit atmosphere.
