Didn't rate the coffee at our hotel and someone recommended the French bistro. Great coffee. Nice outdoor area to while away a lazy day. Had a steak for lunch and it was ok.

I was pleasantly surprised by the «Bistrot Français» which is located near to Parliament Square. The setting is decently elegant without being above the notch. It is a place to enjoy good food in a French decor. The specialty is a fillet steak of 350...More

I am not the restaurant owner. I paid cash and don't know whether the restaurant takes AMEX (or other credit cards, for that matter). There are ATMs all over UB, so cash is rather easy to get.
