Respond to Review of Bistro 1847 - City Centre
Review: I have been to Bistro 1847 more than a few times and every time the food and service has been second to none. The waiters are friendly, professional and attentive. The food is fresh, reasonably priced and inventive and the atmosphere is relaxed. I went the other night with my husband and his veg-sceptical parents. I had the sundried tomato and bean pate which was to die for, it had whole chunks of fresh tasting sundried tomatoes and the portion size was quite large for a starter. The flat bread it came with was plentiful and tasted freshly made. My husband had the edamame beans which come in their sell and are marinated in a lemony, salty sauce. I kept stealing his and he mine they were both so good! For the main I had the beer battered tofu (a new addition to the menu mocking their beer battered halloumi) which was served with fresh cooked chips and minted mushy peas. The whole thing was amazing, I hate mushy peas but somehow they managed to make these so appetizing I did not leave a trace on my plate! My husband and his parents had the leek and broad bean pie. They were very impressed and said the roasted veg served with it were amazing. For dessert I had the salted caramel ice cream which was something I had never seen on a menu before, it was so good! My husband and in-laws kept stealing bites of mine which was fine because the portion size was huge. I cannot find anything to fault with this restaurant but would advise that it can be a bit expensive so is best saved for a special occasion. I must also complement them on their wide selection of vegan options on the menu, almost everything except for the halloumi dishes are vegan and now that they have the beer battered tofu as a main not even that is a problem anymore!
