Bistro Eté is everything you long for in a restaurant tucked away in a quaint spot in The Mill Center. Transformed by Interior Designer Karen Gorman to reflect an understated chic and comfortable style that transports you to the Coast of France. This unpretentious dining experience celebrates food and wine in a setting for all the senses yet does not compete with the flavors.

Chef Arie, inspired by his Cypriot heritage, formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and his years working under Two Star Michelin Chef Philippe Da Silva in Provence, presents cuisine reflective of this coastal style. Longtime customers can still indulge in his classic dishes such as escargot, striped bass with champagne truffle sauce and his own dry aged steaks. Of course Chef Arie’s menu will include many mouthwatering vegan and vegetarian dishes driven by altering his favorite recipes for his vegetarian wife.

Bistro Ete is an adorable restaurant in Watermill. The outside space is just as charming as the inside. Foie Gras was outstanding as were the scallops. I'd skip the fried artichokes. They were very heavy and greasy. Otherwise, delicious.

Warm reception at the front desk: a nice touch! The menu is diverse and offers a multitude of selections to please even your pickiest companions. We started with the grilled cheese and warm cauliflower: UNBELIEVABLE!! Then we went to heaven with the puff pastry cheese: OMG!! The steak with garlic/butter was cooked to perfection at our requested medium-rare. Since they make their own ice cream we could not resist their vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce!! FANTASTIC!!

After eating at every (supposedly) best restaurant in the Hamptons, this is truly THE VERY BEST RESTAURANT IN THE HAMPTONS!!!!!!

I am never disappointed when I eat here. The menu has something for everyone and the food is delicious! Definitely the best Foie Gras I've ever had and the sauce it's served with is amazing. The chef, the staff, all 5 star. There is always a nice warm vibe when you enter. I'll recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for excellent food!

Nice staff. Outdoor seating. Food was odd. Artichokes we’re over fried and tasteless. Vegetable paella was uninspired and not of a traditional sort—good hot tasty bread rolls were best thing. Ice cream was pedestrian
Seating was in center of a little mall —we expected more from the Hamptons

Foie gras was great.
Escargot was good.
Osso bucco was very good.
Swordfish was terrible. It was a tjny slice about a quarter of an inch thick and obviously had no taste left in it since it immediately dried out when cooked.

One of the best options here in Southampton

Liz and Arie welcome you to their lovely Provencal restaurant with warm and open arms. The food is excellent with creative preparations. A varied menu provides choice for all. Portions vary from spartan to overgenerous depending on the dish. The cocktail menu is long and very creative. Wine list is very comprehensive but pricey. Wait staff is very friendly and efficient though never rushed. There is lots of outdoor seating. Highly recommended but expect to pay for it. You cannot do better in this part of the Hamptons.

Our favorite spot in the Hamptons for a night out with friends, or a romantic date night. I love the spicy margarita (they let you choose the spice level on a scale of 1-10), the Brussels sprouts with halloumi is delicious, and the chicken is incredible. Always lovely ambiance, lively and fun but not crazy or fussy. The best food and always a wonderful time.

What is this magical elixir? A spicy margarita? None like you’ve ever tasted before. The whole experience of dining at bistro ete is always one to be savored -from the moment you get your fruit enclosed ice cube to that first taste of the hot roll or the velvety culmination of flavors on your fork-every bite is downright delicious . I hate to rave about it because Then I will never be able to get a reservation but it’s too good to not share:)
