In all my visits to Whidbey, I can't believe this is the first time I've dined here. Wonderful food, great service, plus a good value. Croque Madame, Pate Maison, and a fantastic French Cider (who knew the French made cider?!). Such a treat to find...More

First night on the island we were told we HAD to go to Prima's Bistro. We were fortunate enough to get outdoor seating, with an amazing view. The heaters were on and the restaurant was kind enough to provide blankets for your lap. While we...More

Glad you enjoyed our ambience and setting. We can't quite understand the issue with the mussels. These Penn Cove mussels come straight from the water right up the island, in big bags that we clean and then throw right into the pan...no sorting of size...More

Prima Bistro is the "go to" place for many who visit Langley. Menu is varied and prepared well. We always end up getting the lamb burger, splitting it, as it's huge. Prima offers all beverages with a decent wine list and craft beers, as well....More
