Had to wait too long for food. The vegetables were luke warm and looked like they were around all day. The meat over cooked for my partner. Sauce was forgotten twice. The only good thing is that after getting the manager after complaining we didn't...have to pay for the food that i had eaten ( was very hungry). Partner couldn't eat his.More

We have just returned home from the most memorable meal. The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated and overlooks Carrigaline. The menu had plenty of choice as did the wine menu. I ordered the chicken spring rolls and the burger both delicious but the spring rolls...must get extra praise, they were so tasty and plentiful yet so light. My husband had piri piri prawns to start and the fillet steak both delicious. All washed down with a Malbec and sweetened with a raspberry roulade...divine. Our waitress, the girl with the red hair, made us feel very special and she was so prompt. We look forward to returning and telling our family and friends of our great experience!!More

The Bistro is only open at the weekends but well worth a visit. It has a nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. There is a good choice of reasonably priced food and you are not rushed

We asked for a window seat which was supplied willingly. There was a good choice on the menu and items were reasonably priced . The staff were helpful and the restaurant was warm

Tried The Bistro for the first time with 3 friends. Was suprised how spacious it was and found it very comfortable and warm (storm Desmond was trashing the streets outside). Found the menu varied enough, and between us we had 2 starters, 4 main courses...and 2 desserts. Food was very tasty and importantly to me, fresh. I really enjoyed my main course as the veg in particular was perfectly cooked and there was a good selection. The portions were very generous and even I was unable to finish it (I have a large appetite) although I would prefer if they reduced the main course prices and gave smaller portions, as I would then be tempted to go more often.More
