Houston Press' Description

The Village's Bistro des Amis looks like the sort of small town French cafe where
you stop to get a coffee and a pastry or an ice cream while shopping
in the village. The gleaming dark wood and glass pastry case is
always well-stocked. Lunch and dinner specials are very reasonable
and the soups, stews and pastries are housemade. Try the escargot in
puff pastry or the pate with cornichons.

    Bistro des Amis features freshly-prepared, classic Paris bistro cuisine in a charming, casual setting. Prices are moderate, too. This middle-range French restaurant is a good choice for all gourmets, or for those who would like to exercise their gourmet muscles-- without breaking their wallets.

    On Tuesdays and Wednesdays for dinner, you can have an appetizer, a side, main course, and dessert for $19.95! They serve authentic French Basque food. They bring you freshly baked baguette slices with whipped butter while you look through the menu. The escargots are delicious at Bistro Les Amis. The atmosphere is cozy and makes you feel like you're dining at a little European... More >>

    A wonderful restaurant in the Village serving food from the French Basque region. Recommended foie gras (large amount for a reasonable price) and rack of lamb. However, avoid their lunch specials.
