George Kirchmann (October 2016)
The Bistro on the Beach is anything but pleasing and inviting. My wife and I ate there in August and found it uncomfortable. We ate inside and spent of the time listening to men who had too much alcohol cursing and complaining about everything. The service and food were OK, but I wouldn't recommend it as an enjoyable experience, especially for families. Children (or any of us for that matter) don't need to be exposed to profane and sexist comments throughout their meal.
