Respond to Review of Bistro 1847 - City Centre
Review: I was excited to see a meat free venue that appeared to be more aimed at fine dining then grab-and-go style food. I took my boyfriend who is veggi and we have very mixed views on the experience. The place itself is beautiful and welcoming and the staff seemed genuinely pleasant and interested in providing good service. The food however was hit and miss. I had the vegan 'fish and chips' (being the health freak that I am ;) ) which was battered tofu and my boyfriend had the veggi version (battered halloumi) I would say the quality of food was good,it was more an issue of quantity! Considering the price bracket being on the high end there really wasn't much on the plate which was disappointing. I had a dessert as I knew that I would be hungry later. I had a chocolate cake with poached pear and vegan cream and I have to say it was one of the best vegan treats I have ever taste! Very rich and creamy tasting. Over all I would consider going here again for a treat as it is a lovely place to go not to be surrounded by the disgusting smell of cooked flesh but it is just a little bit too expensive if like me you have a big appetite! I believe that they update the menu regularly so I would be interested to see if this was just a one time issue.
