I had heard from so many people that Bistrot Verite in Birkdale village was very good that I couldn't resist paying a visit to taste the food for myself.
I was not disappointed it was like walking into a french bistro and everything about the interior made me feel happy, it was cosy, lovely music, fabulous staff who could ask for anything more.
Good food I suppose was the main attraction and that certainly was great. The extensive lunchtime menu made it difficult to choose from, eventually I ordered"Creamy smoked haddock & Spinach Gratin which was absolutely delicious.
It was served in a terracotta dish and was made up of deliciously mild smoked haddock, chunks of hard boiled egg in a wonderful sauce topped with green breadcrumbs which the delightful young waiter explained was mixed with parmensan cheese and lots of green herbs.
The dessert menu was so tempting but I couldn't do justice to anything more so I finished with coffee and have promised myself I will return to try a creme brulee or eton mess both of which looked delicious.
