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 14th 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.


Its October .....and although its  still a little Summery outdoors, our menus have changed now to reflect the arrival of Autumn cooking- A baked gratin starter of Dorset crab & baby prawns, or a Bury blackpudding potato cake with homemade brown sauce , soft egg & crunchy onion bits are just two of the new additions to our starters.

Main courses include slow roast Confit duck leg with fruity braised red cabbage, celariac & potato puree and plum & star anise jus, the return of the Bistro fish plate...pan fried fillet of sea bass & scottish salmon with minted pea puree a herb crumbed fried goujon of plaice, homemade chips & tartare sauce. 

Warm Sticky banana & date pudding with salted caramel ice cream & toffee sauce, chocolate cheesecake or vanilla poached pear with gingerbread & stem ginger ice cream.... all homemade by Rachel...and delicious.

We do have 4 or 5 outside tables and you are more than welcome to sit and have a bottle of wine or drinks and relax.
