We made a last minute booking at this restaurant, a decision we were not to regret. It is a small family run restaurant with excellent service. The menu covers all needs (meat, fish, vegetarian) and they can adapt most of the items to gluten free,...More

We had a fabulous meal here - Family of 5 celebrating a 60th birthday party, food was very nice, tasty & cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend this bistro if you want to have a nice meal in the Lakes.
