Celebration with partner
Wonderful, as ever - the food is excellent and the outdoor seating is perfect in the current environment!
Great service and delicious food. The outside seating area is great for the warmer weather.
Wonderful welcome back to one of my favourite restaurants - fantastic service, good wine list and lovely food as ever. The perfect place to while away a summer's afternoon after a wander around Boro Market.
Well...we hadn’t visited this lovely little place for some time and have now been back twice in the last two weeks. Would thoroughly recommend, try the cheese and charcuterie board for two, spectacular! . Sweet out door space and good value for money, charming staff,
Will definitely visit again! Love the outdoor seating area surrounded by plants. Vintage style decor. Decent priced meals and drinks. Left as a happy customer.
Lovely staff and delicious food, would definitely recommend
Great outdoor space, very buzzy and great staff. Good Covid measures but you need to book if you want an outdoor table or sofa
First meal out since lowdown and was wonderful. Would definitely recommend.
A great hidden gem in London Bridge. The food is delicious & so much choice there's something for everyone.
We sat outdoors under the awning and could've stay for a few more hours longer!
I always have a wonderful time at Boro Bistro. I think for the location, the food, the service and the ambience it's very good value.
If I had one small comment I would say the portion sizes are a little small for certain dishes but it wouldn't stop me coming back
Everything was perfect as usual except that there's no option to have separate bills for one table as it creates a lot of palava at the end of the evening 😅
In today's mandate for social distancing, but if you still like decent food and drink this location is a gem. Just off London Bridge / Borough Market the location is ideal for al fresco dining but its not noisy. The staff are very attentive and helpful. I have never had French tapas before but effectively that's what this is and its awesome. Well priced both for food and drink, this is a must for work or social gatherings.
The setting for this bistro is lovely and was so looking forward to eating there. The staff and ambience were fine but the food a real let down. Very disappointing.
service was shocking and food very disappointing, the waitress who served us did not really pay any attention to us, I booked this for my Birthday celebrations a total of 8 people and did not leave me feeling very happy, a real shame
The service was ok but the waiter forget to bring part of our order. The food was good but not as good as it has been in the past. The ambience was ok but there was a bit of a damp smell.... overall an OK experience
Food was amazing- especially the crab cakes.
Was such a nice experience and had a lovely waiter. 10/10
Lovely evening with friends we had ! Service was awesome and the athmosphere plus food were great. We’ll definitely return !
Thanks guys !
Hello Nina, Thank you for such a great comment, we are glad you enjoyed your evening with your friends. Your feedback on the service as well as the food is much appreciated. Looking forward on your return! Anton.
Waitress was polite, friendly, charming. Helpful with the birthday cake I supplied, and the staff brought it out with candles and sang to the birthday boy. The food was delicious, my only request was I would have liked more vegetables. My husband asked for medium rare steak and got well done, but it was all very tasty.
Great French food in a quirky ambiance. Friendly staff giving great service. Wonderful find !
Hello Jude, Thank you for kind and enlightening comment. We are glad you enjoyed the service but most importantly that you witnessed the true Boro Bistro experience. We hope to see you again soon! Kindest regards, Anton.

Fantastic food in a small restaurant with a great vibe. Service was slow and table tiny but food was great and I really like this place.
Hello Liz, Thank you for your lovely comment, your feedback is much appreciated. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the food as well as the overall ambience. The issues regarding the service and table size is duly noted, however we hope to see you again soon! Anton.
The food was good , though the Tartiflette was a complete fluke ... I love that dusk but I actually couldn’t eat it in this place, it was really unpalatable.
Otherwise the rest of the food was OK, nothing to write home about , it the atmosphere is lovely, the service was good and they have good non alcoholic beer :)
I would go back knowing what I know ...
Hello Diana, Thank you for your comment, your feedback is much appreciated. We are pleased you enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the service. However, regarding the Tartiflette, we are sorry to hear it was not to your satisfaction especially as it is one of our best selling dishes. Glad the non alcoholic beer did is for you. We hope to see you again soon! Anton.
This restaurant has a great atmosphere. The decor is quirky to say the least! The food is excellent and although everything is in small portions, similar to tapas, I still managed to eat too much! Not your run of the mill place and we will definitely be returning.
Hello Helen, thank you for your wonderful comment we appreciate your feedback on the food, as well as the decor. We are glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and we hope to you again soon! Anton.

Great service and amazing food. Would strongly recommend and will be visiting again soon. Espresso martini was one of the best I’ve had.
Thank you for your amazing comment! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the food as well as the service. Regarding the Expression Martini, we have one waiting for you with your name on it. See you soon! Anton.
I was so chuffed to find this place and it turn out so well
Thank you for your great comment, we appreciate the feedback. We are glad that your new discovery did not disappoint and we hope to see you soon. Anton.
Busy but not horribly so on a Wednesday night so not too noisy. Bistro look and atmosphere such as you might easily find in Paris.
We sat inside as it was raining and windy, but outside is lovely in the summer
We had a couple of bottles of Hungarian Pinot Grigio which was really really good. And the burgers were stupendous!
Thank you for comment and for the feedback on the wine and burgers. We like to think of ourselves as a little piece of France in London, so if you can't make it to Paris our door will be open. We hope to see you soon. Anton.
Thank you for your kind feedback. We hope to see you again soon. Anton.
Nice staff, nice venue. Good food. Would definitely return
Amazing! Lovely food & wine, super friendly staff.
Can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for such a lovely comment, we are glad you enjoyed everything. Can’t wait to have you back! Kind regards, Anton.
This place is cool and has a nice vibe. The boro board is really nice but the rest of the food is pretty average, quite greasy and sometimes bland.
Hi Christina, Thank you for your comment. We are glad to hear your enjoyed the atmosphere and our cheese and meat board. Regarding the tapas, we would appreciate if you could send us an email with more details. We are always happy to receive feedback in order to improve ourselves. Many thanks Kindest regards Chris
Loved this place. Really unusual and buzzing atmosphere. Food great and service spot on. Would definitely go back.
Thank you for your lovely comment, we are glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. We hope to see you soon! Kind regards, Anton.
Great service and food, great ambience. Slightly tricky to find. Definitely will go again now I know where it is.
Thank you for your kind comment, we are looking forward to seeing you again soon! Kind regards, Anton.
This is a tapas style restaurant with friendly staff and a lively atmosphere.
However, the service was really chaotic. We ordered 7 dishes to share and sat back whilst the servers tried to give us food that we hadn't ordered. We eventually got 6 out of our 7 dishes. The quality of the food was very mixed, some nice dishes but some very mediocre ones. We had to ask where our 7th dish was and it came after a long wait. It was a very dry black pudding croquet and not worth waiting for.
When the bill came, surprise surprise, it had items on which we hadn't ordered or eaten so I asked for an amended bill, which I paid. It was only after this that I noticed that the bill contained a 12 5% service charge. As the service was so poor, I felt cheated. I certainly wouldn't have paid it had I seen it earlier.
Hello Patricia, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. As we told you on TripAdvisor, we are really sorry for the service your received that evening, this is not the standards we wish for our customers. We would be happy to refund you the amount or send us an email to see what we can do for you. Kindest regards Chris
Lovely evening celebrating my birthday. Food was very nice I just wasn’t that keen on mine. I think the tables needed to be cleared away quicker and when we paid we didn’t get our change for over 15 minutes and then not all of it was given so was a bit annoying in the end. The first waitress was lovely and very helpful but we seemed to of got someone else by the end. Some plates were chipped which may be part of the ambience but not really a plus point for me. The table wasn’t ready or set up for when we arrived and then not for the correct amount of people in our party so we were a bit squashed in but we had fun anyway
Thank you for your comment, we really appreciate your feedback. Regarding your change, we apologise for the wait you shouldn’t have waited 15 min and it is unacceptable you didn’t receive the full amount; this will be looked into. The chipped plates is part of the ambience but your opinion has been noted. We would also like to apologise for our lack of organisation, you table should have been set up for the correct amount of people before you arrived. Anyway we are glad you had fun!
Ambience was good although tables are very tightly packed in. Food was good without being memorable
Thank you for your comment , we appreciate your feedback! Kind regards, Anton.
Quirky spot with a decent wine list and delicious nibbles. Will be back!
Thank you for your comment, we hope to seee you soon! Kind regards, Anton.
