Bistro Mediterranean and Tapas Bar - Westbrook
We made the lunch reservation many weeks ago. We were meeting friends from R. I. that we have not seen in over thirty years. Open Table confirmed the reservation the day before our lunch. Imagine our surprise to arrive at the restaurant and find it closed for lunch. The restaurant and Open Table had a responsibility to notify us of this fact. Luckily, we found an open restaurant a mile away and had a lovely reunion luncheon.
Fantastic food, lovely presentation, attentive service. Our favorite tapas restaurant.
The food was delicious, fresh amd made with love. Our waiter was an absolute gem. The owner came around to check on us which is always a nice touch.
Always a great time. We miss Romero. RIP
Bar tender was awesome. Opened up a couple of his favorite bottles and let me try a glass. Some of the best shrimp I’ve ever had. Amazing. Well be back.
Amazing experience all around
It was a nice experience and cream brûlée is to die for.
Was a great dinner
We had a wonderful experience at Bistro Mediterranean. Excellent food and service-we love the empanadas.
The Bistro was a great choice for a long overdue lunch for my sister and me. The food-both regular dishes and specials-were delicious as was the cava. Fabulous service with a waiter who was very helpful and accommodating to our 2 hour stay. Served us complimentary moscato too!
Phenomenal food. Excellent service. Will definitely go back again
Outside. Yeah! Fresh air, less fear of Covid. Lovely waitstaff - available but not pesky, accurate, pleasant. Tables and chairs under three sided canvass tent made for lots of air circulation. I will trade fussy inside for more carefree outside eating now and maybe forever after. Brussel sprouts are the cat's meow. Succulent - tasty while neither too salty nor too greasy. Just delicious. Calamari not so much - small, rubbery although sauce and beans quite tasty.
Great find! We can dine outdoors under tent or outdoors near heater. Service was great. Healthy options and you can get either tapas or full meals. Everything I tasted was so good. The owner was wonderful and even topped off dinner with an after dinner drink surprise for us. We want to make sure to support local places who are serving outdoors and safely and this was perfect.
Service was outstanding, constant flow of tapas and drinks. Everything we ordered was delicious.
This place has the BEST food and at very reasonable prices. Huge menu selections all excellently prepared. Outside dining is available, hopefully with heaters as the nights get colder. I have never been disappointed with the food or service.
Ate outside and it was comfortable. One suggestion is to make some upgrades to the wine list.
Hidden gem on the shoreline. The food is out of this world. service is outstanding. It’s our favorite place to eat.
Very friendly staff. Simple setting. A couple items were a little bland, but still good food overall and modest prices.
This was the worst restaurant experience we have ever had in our 22 years of marriage. We came here to celebrate our 22nd year and the service was poor. It took 20 minutes for a waiter to come to our table to only ask us for our dinner order, not if we wanted drinks. The only reason the waiter came was because we asked A bus person if we had been indeed assigned a waiter. The food came out sporadically and appeared to have been microwaved. Our water glasses were never refilled. The waiter never came to check on our meals or to see if we needed another drink. Additionally there was a bread assigned staff who came by to see if we wanted bread after our first tapas was served. She expressed I want to give this to you because I don’t know when the next loaf will come out.’ The host walked around nonchalantly like a chicken with its head cut off and asked how people enjoyed their meals but really didn’t care and was not clearly a manager or an owner of the business. Because if this wasn’t his business he would have been running around making sure the wait staff and the kids and staff were adequately prepared And delivering service appropriately. My husband and I decided we would have a do over for an anniversary dinner at another place.
Just absolutely right.
Our first visit to Bistro Mediterranean will actually be the first of many. The food was excellent! We ordered an assortment of small plates including different salads, sautéed artichokes, and so on. Every one was delicious, creative, and generously portioned.
Our meal was long and leisurely and we felt relaxed and well fed when it was over. A definite treat!
Under the circumstances, coronavirus and power outage, Bistro did a wonderful job. The food was excellent
We got the paella and a mussel was bad. Made the whole dish smell. Got sick from it too. The owner did the right thing and took it out of the bill. Was disappointed because it had such great ratings. There was also no electric and they never called us to tell us. We had to eat in the dark. Not sure if the mussels were bad because they were running on a generator but the chef should’ve smelled it. I smelled it right away when they gave me the dish.
We had the five course chef selected tapas with wine pairing. The food was outstanding!!!!
Fantastic food! We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of food and attentive service.
This was our first time inside a restaurant since the pandemic. We ate in the covered, fresh air patio. The quality of food was excellent. Our wait staff were efficient and friendly. Will be back again soon!
We must have caught the staff during an off-night. The waitress delivered both our drink and food orders to the wrong table, not once, not twice, but three times! Food was delicious, though. And value is outstanding.
First time at a Tapas Bar. Enjoyed the food and the service was awesome. My wife and I plan on having dinner there this Friday.
I am not impressed and will not return. The wine smelled musty. Some of the food was good, but some was not. We had a terrible eggplant dish which was undercooked and the owner did not want to rectify the situation. It was not clean and the staff was not very professional. It was such a hassle I will never go back. And, I feel lucky that I did not get some sort of food borne illness.
The food was flavorless, seemed to have been warmed up from frozen. and we all felt ill after the meal. Additionally the restaurant had an extremely unpleasant odor.
Service, food and drinks are consistently wonderful! Everyone, from the host to the server are always extremely attentive and friendly. Our salads and entrees were all fantastic, including the night’s special. Our friends and family love the atmosphere and will continue to come back.
