We went to Bastille on Saturday night after a recommendation from family. Not disappointed!! The food was outstanding and the waiter was excellent, very attentive but not intrusive. We were there for our anniversary and the setting was perfect for couples or small group gatherings. I would definitely recommend to anyone, great menu and reasonably priced.

There was a daily menu and an a-la-carte menu, both offering authentic French food and plenty of choice. The service was excellent and the food very nicely presented, perfectly cooked, delicious. A really... More

We were a party of 4 to celebrate a special birthday. Everyone totally enjoyed their food. La Bastille never fails to disappoint. Excellent food, and service and all at a reasonable cost for the quality of the food.

Apart from the 10 foot illuminated Eiffel Tower outside, you would not necessarily know your were entering a French restaurant. It doesn't go with any of the false cliche French tell-tale signs you might see in other restaurants. However, my wife and I have visited many Parisien and French restaurants on our visits to France over the years, and you... More

Very mediocre. Dessert was good but mains poor and overall very disappointed considering relatively good reviews definitely lots of better venues in town to spend your evening.

The food was amazing to say the least. The staff were french which I expected being in a french restaurant. The wine list was very good as there was plenty of choice. The risotto was a stand out for me as it had chestnuts which were just amazing. The staff were a little nervous but gave us plenty of laughs.... More
