We were recommended to this bistro restaurant by a friend and were certainly not disappointed.
The bistro is quite small so we had taken the precaution of booking ahead. Service is good, friendly enough without wishing to become “your new friend”.
There is a good and varied selection from the menu without it being too long (very long menus make me suspicious that food is not necessarily fresh and is quite possibly/probably bought in). This is most certainly not the case with the Anzac since it was clear that our orders were being cooked to order - albeit delays between orders and food coming to the table were not inordinately long. The other clue to food being prepared individually was that it was apparent that individual bookings were being taken in fifteen minute slots.
The food itself is nicely presented and in good (but not overbearing) quantity. Flavours were good and the food very enjoyable.
The ambience of the restaurant is very pleasant. Tables are reasonably close together but we didn’t feel crowded. There is an eclectic mix of background music but it is played at a pleasant volume and is certainly not overbearing or disruptive to conversation.
Although there is not a children’s menu we were told that the chef will cater for them. The restaurant is aware of gluten and other allergy requirements. We were told that there are nuts in the kitchen as with most restaurants [no insult to the chef and staff intended!!] but particular care is taken because of those with nut allergies.
Food and drinks are priced competitively. We had 2 x 2 course meals including sea bream, a glass of wine and two beers and the bill came to just under £60 (excluding tip) which we regarded as very good value.
Would we go again? Definitely and I would fully recommend it to others. Probably wise to book though because, as I say, it is quite small.
