We both had the table d'ote menu. Excellent choice. Good value and excellent food. Very nice wine recommendation too. We ate early as we had a show. The service was quick but not rushed. I would recommend the risotto.

Had the most amazing meal at Bistro21. It was a birthday treat and I certainly felt very spoilt! We went for 3 courses and each dish came about beautifully presented and tasted great as well. The apple crumble dessert was amazing (not your average crumble!)....More
