Our strong commitment to make a distinctive offer of excellence available has been validated by our customers with consistent 5-star reviews on Google and TripAdvisor.

The food offer is inspired by the fascinating Western and Eastern Mediterranean culinary traditions-French, Greek, Italian, Macedonian and Spanish. For instance, our pizza is made of "Green" dough (antioxidants, minerals and vitamins infused) in a brick oven according to a recipe older than one century. We also offer authentic appetizers, tapas, flat breads, salads and iconic mains from the multicultural heritage of the Mediterranean civilization.

For a more refined and sophisticated experience, our meals are accompanied by selected, elegant and affordable wines including Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, and others.

The symphony of flavors of our food and wine is complemented by the inviting interior of wood and stone, informal seating arrangements, arts and warm atmosphere.

    With its relaxed atmosphere, great Mediterranean food and friendly attentive service, Bistro Ristoro has become one of my favourite restaurants. My most recent visit was a leisurely lunch on Saturday with 3 companions. Two of us ordered the Brochetas de Gambas which consisted of two skewers of fresh, perfectly grilled and very tasty shrimp, accompanied by a Mediterranean potato salad and Majorcan salad of tomato, green pepper and onion. My friend who ordered the Chorizo Omelet (from the brunch menu) said it was delicious. She kindly let me sample the accompanying Cavendish fries and brick-oven-fired somum bread, and I can personally confirm that they were also excellent. The fourth member of our group really enjoyed his Macedonian XL Cheeseburger-Plieskavitza, a veal patty topped with Kaymak served in a rustic bread pot - far more interesting than a typical burger! We had to wait a little longer than usual for our meals to arrive, but it was well worth the wait.
