A La Bouffe Bistro & Bar - User Reviews


Wonder where the local French go for a taste of home? Wonder no more: p the moment we walked in the door, my wife remarked that this looked very similar to the bistro that we visited in Paris during our honeymoon, cliché I know, but its true! The friendly French speaking waiters adds that extra authenticity; with a good selection of French wine and champagne we soon found ourselves reminiscing about the time we spent in Paris. We did some research and yes, the lobster ravioli and the snail was indeed very tasty, eye fillet is good too. This is the perfect location for a romantic dinner or a family occasion, indeed we saw many regulars that night. Booking is a must given the popularity and it’s easy to understand why, we would be going back there the next time we’re in the neighbourhood. Excellent food, excellent service, and the atmosphere and decor are just perfect! ** take your time to enjoy the atmosphere, don't worry about the waiter, they haven't forgotten about you. Given that there is one waiter for every three tables, they keep a very watchful eye - just sit back, relax and enjoy the meal. Thank you for a great night A La Bouffe!review  27/09/2011
