A real treasure trove of French delicacies. Superb croissants and breads, large selection of quiches, incredible selection of cheeses probably more than 50, plus some beautiful hand made pottery. I have not visited anywhere so authentic this side of the channel, and as a bonus the staff are very friendly and helpful.

No Name Shop is the best place in Sandwich (and SE Kent) for real French food. And Le Bistro is the restaurant with the shop. Great baguettes, wonderful food and genuine French cheeses. Great place for lunch in Sandwich.

Dropped in for lunch. Service was excellent and the staff were very friendly despite being very busy. There was a large range of specials as well as an extensive menu. Great soup, bread and creme brulee. I would happily return to try some other items on the menu. Very happy I stopped there.

Busy and popular place but staff were efficient and friendly. Baguettes served with crisps and small salad and have tasty fillings. Coffee hot but too weak for us. Staff added extra shot which helped. Have had croque monsieur on previous visit and recommend this.

I first visited this restaurant during the July Folk Festival a couple of years ago and was glad to find it still there - down stairs is a delicatessen selling French wine, cheeses, bread, garlic, etc [and the most amazing selection of olives] and upstairs a bar and bistro overlooking the town square and Guildhall. The menu isn't very extensive... More

No greeting. No advice whether it was waiter service or order at bar. No menu. Turns out that one of staff members was sat having her lunch in the customer area and was totally oblivious of us or was determined to ignore her customers. Other member of staff could not have been more helpful when she came to take our... More

Felt it wasn't great value for money. Nice food but not overly impressed. The dessert is served with cheap spray cream

Good food, friendly service. Benefits from the delicatessen shop below. A shame it doesn't open late! :)

Lots of dishes, some with a decidedly French air, very adaptable, lots of choice. From breakfasts to sandwiches to coffee, light or more filling lunches and desserts, all well presented and served. Alchohol available. Good coffee.
