had breakfast there for 3 days and it was bad. I wish they would have change, but what it is, is what it is. The service was excellent and the people were friendly. Nice little spot to have your morning cup of coffee. The bar area was a great place to gather in the evening, but it's small.

Hiding in the Ayer's Hotel at 325 Bristol St in NEWPORT.... (careful... there is the same address up in Santa Ana)... is one of the nicest restaurants in the area.

I enjoyed the breakfast each morning. The only problem was, if eating by yourself during a busy rush, they may clear your table and seat some else there while you are up at the buffet. I also had a nice, cozy dinner there as well.

We had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts at Le Chateau Bistro. One dinner was wonderful. We were with a large party (15+) and the service was excellent. My husband had a filet mignon and said it was the best he had ever had. I had ravioli and it was average - as were our other meals there. If you plan... More

I had the bass and it was quite good, served with vegetables and rice. There were regulars there that had pasta every night and obviously enjoyed it.

Great service, great food. Had the French onion soup and pot roast sandwich. Really good, big portions. Could only finish half of my sandwich. Good thing the rooms... More
