About 279 Cafe Bistro

'Brilliant Dinner'
Catriona Hogg - 13/08/2015
The food is exquisite, we had the lamb and the steak followed by the white chocolate and malteaser cheesecake for dessert. Both courses were the perfect amount of food and it tasted delicious. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very cosy. I will be back very soon!
'Great wee place!'

We really like it here and have been quite a few times now. Love the Cajun sea bass main course. Will be back.
