I have been here four times now and every single time I have left completely satisfied. I have only ever had the ribs and I don't think I could ever go to Resto Bistro without ordering them. They might sound expensive but in comparison to...More

Regardless of what everyone else says about the price of the ribs, you definitely get your money's worth for what it is, as shown in the picture! I am a big eater and I didn't look at the desert menu because I was so full...More

This restaurant lacks any atmosphere and although the food is ok, I have no idea how they can justify charging £24 for a rack of ribs. The whole menu is overpriced and you cant help but feel gutted when the bill comes and you have...More

Dear customer, We usually only have the best comments for our ribs and it is also one our most wanted item on the menu. You do not mention that £24 includes any two side orders and that the portion are very generous. They are also...More

Dear customer, I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit. For your information though, the pate is made from fresh every 3 days and what you call fat is clarified butter. We have made this recipe for years and have had no complains. The...More

This is well presented restaurant, spotlessly clean linens, unobtrusive service and very good food. The portions are huge - even the starters are big but it's all very good. Try the lamb shank on a bed of mash - lovely!

I've been eating in Restobistro for years now and can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. This restaurant offers quality food and exceptionally good service! The waitresses are very attentive without being over the top. It's without doubt, the best place to eat...More
