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.

    A group of vegans and non-vegans dined. We were all absolutely in love with our food. The service is always spectacular and the people are very nice and friendly. The decor is beautiful. My only criticism- please stop serving foie gras the cruelest food in earth.

    I had a wonderful Mother’s Day lunch. From the lovely owner that sat us to our delicious food, everything was perfect. Our waitress was patient and attentive. While on the expensive side everything is fresh and well prepared. It was worth it and I will definitely be back.

    There is no such thing as PLAIN broiled fish!! Yes they will do Cod (not my favorite fish) in lemon butter. But I was told it is a French restaurant and they don't do simple

    Great find - I cannot believe Bistro Ete has been here for 7 years and I had no idea. Food was excellent, presentation lovely, people charming. A little pricey but typical for the Hamptons. I've already made another reservation.

    Amazing menu….could have ordered anything and I’m sure it would have been wonderful. Had the osso bucco…fantastic, my wife had the papadelle special with shaved truffles….also fantastic. We started with a “smoked” old fashioned and a margarita…drink menu is amazing. Liz is wonderful and she has created an amazing experience.

    The food at Bistro Ete is always inventive and delicious. Lots of specials that change often to keep with whats fresh and local. The chef and his wife are present and engaging and welcoming to everyone who walks in the door. It's a fantastic dining experience whether you are there with a group of friends or just a warm dinner for 2.

    The food was phenomenal with service reminiscent of a 5 star restaurant. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, creating a calming, inviting ambiance. The perfect setting to enjoy a fantastically delicious meal. The owner/ Chef is pleasant and made a point to meet and chat with his patrons. Our waiter, Noah was an absolute delight. He gave the best advise regarding food options and cocktails. We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary celebration and look forward to our next dining experience here.
