Welcome to The Bistro, we proudly serve progressive international cuisine with an emphasis on fresh seafood, in a casual, upscale atmosphere.

The Bistro’s a culmination of local talents: Chef Dave Bureau, Richard Haddock and his wife Laurie, the designer.

Chef Dave, a culinary veteran for over 30 years, learned most of his skills from the time he spent in the kitchen, cooking Sunday dinners with his grandmother Maria. Since then, he has spent his time perfecting his craft in such establishments as; The Dock House, Websters of Branford, Le Chambord Restaurant, Rainbow Garden, as well as being the executive chef at Water’s Edge Resort and Spa.

Dave, Richard and Laurie, who have all been long time friends, have come together to form a truly unique and exquisite experience; that is The Bistro.

Richard, a 30 year veteran of the seafood wholesale business, and Laurie are the masterminds behind the interior design of the restaurant. They bring together a perfect fusion of great atmosphere, quality cuisine and a welcoming staff.

And that’s how the story began… With a mutual passion for hockey, both being players and fans of opposing teams too, of course, plus their longtime friendship, in combination with Laurie’s keen design eye, we have established the inviting, family atmosphere you will love.

We’re kid friendly too! Bring your little ones in. We have the perfect menu for them! We know, because our kids menu was created by our combined 5 kids: Jordyn, Karlee, Caelan, Shelby and Madigan; the experts.

So come in today, and often; our specials menu is ever changing! SO you’ll always find something new to love.

Cheers to supporting local, and keeping it fresh!
