We knew from the aroma as we walked in that we were in for a treat and we weren’t disappointed. Our greeting was warm and friendly and we had a lovely table for 2 ready for us. It was my wife’s birthday and the waitress recalled this from the booking and wished her a very happy birthday - a nice touch. The menu was mouth watering to read and our starters when they arrived lived up to expectations as did the mains. Delicious and a treat to look at.
I would highly recommend this restaurant - in fact I already have and my Mum is there with my sister this evening!

Excellent food choice, and price. Very good value. Ate at Slieve Donars recently - this meal was superior in flavour, temperature and cost - half the price and twice the flavour. Good deinks selection too. Service was attentive.

Second time eating at Bistro Este, I was so impressed with the first time I recommended it for a friendly gathering. Both occasions I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Delicious food, top class service with very professional and courteous staff. Tastefully decorated and something about this place makes it feel like you are having a dinner party at home with friends. I am an infrequent reviewer, but wanted to take the time to give Bistro Este the credit it is due.

This is our third visit to the Bistro Este. My wife likes it because of the varied flavours. The first two times the food was excellent, unfortunately this time it wasn't up to it's usual standard. Will not stop us from going again.

Bistro Este is by far my favourite restaurant in East Belfast. It's always 1st choice for me when I want a beautifully cooked and tasty bit of grub! Love it!

A beautiful restaurant in Ballyhackamore village of east Belfast with delicious food and great ambience. We had the Sunday roast and all enjoyed it. Great local art on the walls from area artists.

We loved bistro Este, it was so lovely to be able to bring our toddler and enjoy a special meal which wasn’t a chain.. and the value was incredible (early bird menu) the children’s food was also very good quality. The attentive and very friendly service was outstanding.

Went there on the recommendation of my daughter for whom this is one of her favourite restaurants. The food was really mouth watering especially my wife's hake and curry sauce. Service was good with friendly staff. However, the portions were relatively small or we were very hungry, so glad we had ordered a side order of chips. It wasn't an early bird menu and we felt it was relatively expensive for the amount of food, but would go back and sample more of their menu.

The food was excellent and the choice wide. My one criticism was the red wine which tasted like ‘plonk’ and the white wine which was not chilled.! Otherwise everything was fine

Great value for money, service was good when we were there (busy Sunday afternoon) but only had one waitress on and way to busy for her to manage on her own, not her fault at all and she did a great job!

My friend and I had a meal in Biatro Este ...we were so happy that we could take our time over choosing the food and asked if we would like our food after we finished our cocktails..I love that as I hate my food coming too soon
We both had the same things, seafood linguine followed by white choc and raspberry creme brulee...both were exquisite.
Will definitely be back

Masterchef type food at a really good price! Had the Early Evening Menu, which is on all evening Tues-Thurs, so it was £21.50 for three outstanding courses. Venison pancakes were unusual and delicious. Should of lamb melted in my mouth and the mint gnocchi were like little pillows. Sticky toffee pudding was really light and the caramel sauce was wonderful. Highly recommend Bistro Este.

We have been to Bistro Este on many occasions and never been even remotely disappointed. We have always had a positive experience and come away with the feeling that we have enjoyed an excellent meal. Apart from the quality of the service which, if it has any weakness, can be occasionally a little too attentive, what we most like about Bistro Este is the quality of the food, by which I mean both the range of ingredients used, the choice available, the changes made to the menu and, above all, the cooking, which is characterised by impressive attention to detail.

We will keep on coming.
