Reviewed 01st October 2013 ( visited 29th September 2013 )

A group of 11 of us visited the Bistro last Sunday evening for an 89th birthday celebration and you can be sure we wont be back for another. Firstly the wine list is out of date, there are several wines on it that they doesn't stock anymore.. Secondly they didn't have some of the dishes on the menu left and only had a few left of some others but annoying part here was that they proceeded to tell those of us that arrived first all this detail about how many was left of each dish and it was a bit too much too be honest as we were lost half way through what they were saying. The offer is 20 euro for starter , main and a glass of wine/mineral. Which sounds good if you are lucky to find dishes that they have not yet sold out of and have no supplement on them. Its the most confusing menu Ive ever seen. If they are going to go down that route they should increase it by couple of euro and remove all the supplements. they should only be on a steak. The BYO sounds great until you see the ten euro corkage, but what they forget to add to the menu is that the BYO and corkage deal also applies to birthday cakes. Yes Birthday cakes for 89 year old's with a group of 11 people (ie they had made his money off us already). They wanted a tenor to cut and plate the cake! So on principal we were not paying it and said we would just present the cake - this was free YIPEE! Service is marked as 0 as most of the mains were cold as the plates were not warm and the cake was immediately removed from the table by the waitress after we took some photos, so we couldn't cut it ourselves I'm guessing?... Anyway needless to we wont be back....
