Respond to Review of Bistro Madeline
Review: I revisited this eatery after it's refurbishment and enjoyed eating in rather than having to take-away and eat in the nearby square. There is now seating with 7 tables and also sofas at the back. The decor reflected the newly adopted bistro status (previously take-out) with a chandelier and design reminiscent of 1920's France. This now licensed venue with much longer opening hours still offers a good selection for both vegetarians and vegans. The A la carte menu (which changes rouchly every month) offered soups, vegetarian herbed rice with roasted vegetables and truffle oil, Vegetable tempura with sweet chilli, tagliatelli in pesto sauce. I had the tempura dish with noodles which was delicious. The 3 course lunch and dinner menu comes to 11.90 pounds. There are also salads, pasties, quiches, sandwiches and desserts. The owner informed me that the chef had been hired from abroad in order to maintain the high standard of cuisine. I certainly relished the flavours of my lunch. Bistro Madeline has an excellent location at the upper end of the main street; perfect for when you are out shopping or exploring. Definitely my preferrred lunch spot on the Rock.
