We recommend you get a reservation if it’s high season. Delicious food esp the seafood which we all ordered. Scallops were excellent. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Open air seating on 5th if you prefer. We’d return readily!

Great service, food is delicious. The dessert was amazing (belgian chocolate mousse). Was definitely a good choice.

We have always liked Bistro 21 but we’re a little disappointed the last time we went. My favourite dish was no longer on the menu. I realise they have to update frequently but still a disappointment. However, Service was excellent.

We had dinner here on the terras. Needed a bit to wait before we got seated, but the interior was not an option for us because of the noise level. We had an excellent meal. The "Branzino" was delicious. The dessert was homemade gellato: unbelievable.
