LiAise Bistro was set up by 2 local brothers Lee and Adam with their partners Claire and Tracey…so a family run business, which is picked up in the atmosphere of this little gem in the heart of Newton Abbot.

Went here for a 30th birthday and Wes very disappointed. We had 3 courses, 1st course Wes garlic prawns with were from frozen and were very small (not king prawns as advertised) and were over cooked. Main course I had a steak with the waiter had to go and get from Asda and was full of grissal and was over cooked and I'm sure wasn't a sirloin as asked as it was as tough as old boots. My wife ordered the burger with tasted incredibly cheap and not nice at all but I will say the fries and the chunky chips were amazing, but not £30 amazing. Then we asked what puddings they had on offer as it was a special occasion and we were offered a hot fruit crumble( in 30 degrees heat) or ice cream, that's it. The staff were great and we felt very welcome but hardly any food on the menu and some of the quality of ingredients were very poor.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly helpful staff and was brilliant value for money. Will definitely be returning again
Nine of us went here on a works get together, we all had a great time! Everyone enjoyed their food, good portion sizes. Quite pricey but it was good quality and well cooked.
Amazing cocktails. Super friendly and helpful staff. One member of our group had special food requirements and these were met by the chef who took time to come over and have a chat. Definitely recommend
Great food & great service as always. Good deal on steak night - 2 steaks & a bottle of very nice wine for £40. Girlie night to celebrate my birthday & we had a lovely time. The only thing we would like to see more of is puddings 😀 Great variety of gins & cocktails available too 🍸
Enjoyed a saturday night catching up with family. Absolutely enjoyed the venue, great food, conversation and hospitality. Would recommend the venue to all my friends and family.
Beautiful clean. Adam the co-owner was very friendly. Food was all locally sourced and fresh. Best steak I have ever eaten. Over all 10 out of 10. Will definitely be back and spread the word to others
We booked this last minute for 5 people and this was no problem. Food was great, service also could not be faulted and the owner came over for a chat before we left. Nice modern, lively bistro with a nice atmosphere.
Food Was amazing i had the pan fried hake which was ample served with baby veg and a pototoe gratan the sauce was out of this world.
my friend had the belly pork and again was ample him.
desserts limited but still very good
and enjoyed all the gins i think i counteed 15 or 16
Location is tricky, the lift was turned off and my nan had to walk down the stairs. Not a very nice part of town either. Nan enjoyed her food. My food was nice, the burger could have been a bit more meaty, it had a very processed texture to it. Lots of things came with the burger, but hardly anything came with the hake.
Had lunch here for an early Mother’s Day treat we had the cod and chips special which was excellent along with the curry and all the trimmings the food was excellent and nicely presented accompanied by a nice bottle of wine?
Staff friendly and a nice atmosphere we will be returning to try on of their evening events a very nice family owned and run establishment,well worth supporting.
Give this place a try recommended.
Haven't been before so thought I would try it for date night with the misses was cosy and very clean and also looked the part. The best but for me was that when I ordered the steak the chef came out and gave me a choice of 2 types of fillet that he had in and also how I wanted it cooked and reassured me it would be rare not medium rare like most places I go and the food was amazing. Had a good choice of drinks which even included my favourite dead man's finger rum which i have only ever seen in one other establishment. 5 star to this place I will be returning again
The restaurant was empty, not a good sign, there was a distinct lack of choice for starters or mains, due to a really busy lunch that day, ordered starters, only not to get them because the chef forgot to do them. Only one choice of lager because the other had run out, meal was well presented and cooked well, but didn't have a dessert because there was a choice of two only, no offer of cheese and biscuits or coffee, so paid and left, disappointed
Came in for a quick buisness meeting for a coffee great to get free wifi also had a spot of tapas service and food great
Came in for friends birthday breakfast. Breakfast was amazing and staff were very good and attentive.
booked a last minute table was made tro fell welcome and shown to our table.
