Great to be back to The Bistro! Fabulous food, I had the scallops and prawns in a white wine cream sauce and himself had Duck in orange sauce with The Bistro’s signature sautéed potatoes. The Malbec was divine, the place was buzzing with people happy...to be back in the land of the living but safely distanced. Great service by Tina and her team, and chef James Bursey never fails to impress with his culinary delights. Thank you for fab evening!More

Went to the Bistro with my fiance last Friday and to no surprise it was just as amazing as the last time we visited. My fiance got the surf and turf and hands down it's the best steak in Gorey, not to mention their delicious...potato slices and mouth watering pepered sauce. Tina and the staff are always so friendly and go above and beyond to make your evening that much more enjoyable. Thanks again Tina and James, we will be back!More

Another excellent meal in the Bistro Restaurant in Gorey. We were a table of four and from the starters right through to the excellent Irish coffees we were not disappointed. Our table had excellent steaks (cooked to perfection) and the black sole was incredible. The...service was friendly and efficient and not too intrusive. The place was buzzing and it great to get back to a bit of normality in these strange times.More

Myself and my husband love this place, the food is always top class, our firm favorite is the surf and turf, it’s the only place that I will eat steak. Great menu and good variety for everyone from starters to desserts. Lovely atmosphere and the...staff are very friendly and helpful. Tina and James are excellent at what they do, I can’t wait to get back there again. Highly recommend this place.More

I understand we only have an hour and a half to sit at the table but I was in and out in an hour. Starter, main and desert. I felt the plates were only gone after the starter and the main was in front of...me one second later. It’s not cheap and it is a treat to go but was really disappointed by this as I felt under pressure. Apart from that the food is amazing and will be going again as it’s one of my favourite Resteraunts.More
