Great food, cozy place. Best place in Langley. Centrally located. Best to make reservations, especially when the weather is nice

Great lamb burger and fries, cold beer on tap and a full bar. A bit on the expensive side but the food and service is top notch. Salads and soups are unique and tasty. So if you want something light, that's an option.

Cozy atmosphere, good food, and a friendly wait staff await you at Prima Bistro. While the escargot was not quite as good as I had in France, the food was decidedly French with bed baked on the premises.

Interesting event. Clearly, lots of heart went into everything served. Everyone was having a great time, and the wines really flowed. Would be very interested to go back on another occasion and experience the regular menu.

We were impressed with the quality and value of happy hour here. Snails in garlic butter for only $6.50, what a delicious way to start our evening. The cauliflower was good too. I enjoyed a whiskey ginger with fresh grated ginger on top. A great...More

Based on other reviews, we decided to try Prima Bistro for lunch during our day trip to Langley. We enjoyed the Bistro Burger and Prima Reuben. The food is delicious, and they are very generous in portions. The Bistro is located on the second level...More

I'm a weekly diner there but am not qualified to answer your question, since my husband and I have no dietary issues. I also suggest contacting the restaurant (ask to speak to Jenn or Sieb, the owners).
