Where to begin? I have made this place my restaurant of choice for special evenings for years, and as usual I was not disappointed. We had the great experience of having the owners wife helping to serve us and she is as magnificent at running...More

We had a very pleasant dinner here last night. Service was very good and exceptionally friendly. I had the fish stew and loved it. It was described as being spicy but it's only yankee spicy so don't worry about it being too hot. The dessert...More

Lovely little French bistro just outside downtown Portsmouth (out by 1 block). Wine bar downstairs; 8-10 tables upstairs, with subdued setting. Great use for an old building, and delicious food. What more you want? Use their coupon from their website.

This restaurant is our favorite, in a town filled with many good restaurants. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable, and the ambiance is warm and romantic. Owners Chris and Stephan Mayeux, are truly dedicated, and make everyone feel welcome.

A great find courtesy of a friend. Outside the center ring of restaurants and shops, but well worth the few extra steps. The Duck was awesome, the staff eclectic and engaging. Reservations recommended.

I've eaten at a good number of Portsmouth restaurants, but never Cafe Mirabelle (old name) or the Bridge Street Bistrot (current name). I didn't know of any word of mouth reputation but the Yelp and OpenTable reviews looked favorable. I must say, we had a...More
