Review on Waterside Bistro

Situated beside the old Totnes Bridge on the banks of the River Dart, this aptly named bistro/café/bar brings a touch of Continental cool to the town. The whole venue is the result of an enthusiastic Anglo-French partnership between chef Matt Buzzo and his Gallic wife Delphine.

The Waterside is open right through the day for light meals, snacks, pastries and drinks, and the café menu is dominated by wood-fired pizzas, pasta and local seafood. Lunches and evening meals in the bistro are also based around Devon produce, and the menu features things like warm chorizo, red pepper and potato salad, smoked fish platters and braised lamb shank with parsley mash, followed by Devon cheeses and desserts such as dark chocolate tart with cherries and clotted cream. The well-spread wine list includes plenty of selections by the glass.
