On the last day of 2015 we enjoyed a very nice dining experience at Bistro de Elliano. The restaurant was not fully booked but the two ladies who served us did a superb job. The menu is not extensive but covered some good options for all six of us. My main meal was lamb and was cooked beautifully. My wife thought her dessert was a fraction dry and the cherries on top could have been pitted. Small issues but overall a very relaxing and tasty experience. Good luck the owner/ chef. Will we be back.
Very impressed with the food, the chef and the waitress!! I would highly recommend it! The midweek special was very delicious and the evening was very enjoyable! Thanks so much for a fantastic experience :)
Our first time at the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely and a nice atmosphere, also the staff were lovely. The midweek special was good value. Will definitely go again.
