First time visitors to Le Bistro, although only living in Barnstaple, we were blown away by this place. Friendly French family welcome you to their secret cave and spoil you rotten with the best, most authentic French cuisine this side of Paris. At times it was difficult to remember we were in North Devon so great was the ambience and... More

I celebrated my birthday here with 23 of my nearest and dearest. Despite the challenge of serving up 24 meals at the same time we were served knock out food in great timing. All 3 courses were amazing, the best restaurant food I have eaten in Devon ever and Jacques and Beatrice were amazing hosts, executing a perfect night. A... More

My 3rd time and still impressed by the warm, friendly atmosphere and the fantastic food cooked so well. A friend was under doctor's orders to avoid dairy & animal products so Le Chef took it as a challenge and created a 3 course meal just for him which was lovely. Love this place - will return ASAP.

A really cosy restaurant in the heart of Braunton, with authentic French food cooked and served by the French owners. The food is exquisite, which is why you do need to book quite far in advance to get a table. Not the cheapest place to eat in Braunton, but certainly the best if you are looking for a fine dining...

This a real French bistro Owned by a French couple! If you like French cooking the food is great! If you like steak it's especially of the house. Prices are reasonable.

Wonderful food, great atmosphere & friendly family service. What a joy it is to have this fantastic restaurant at the end of our road. The 'new' owners have taken the cuisine to the next level. French dining at its best.
