welcome to bistro west 156


Located on Burton Road The Bistro is the shining

star of the thriving West Didsbury food scene.

Now in our 13th year we continue to cook a fresh interesting range of dishes from around Europe, but not overlooking some classic British dishes as well.

The Bistro has a rustic feel its not fine dining, its a neighbourhood eating place and we donot follow current trends, or try to become a carbon copy of other restaurants around the city.
