Fellow foodies, Are you ready for a night of sophistication and elegance? Then Le Bistro on any Norwegian Cruise Line Ship is the place.
You’ll be greeted with crisp white linens and an intimate atmosphere that will make you feel like a special guest. The service? It’s generally so attentive, you might feel like you’re the only one in the room.
But let’s get to the real reason we’re here: the food. Le Bistro serves a contemporary take on classic French cuisine, meaning you’ll be enjoying plates of escargot and coq au vin like a true connoisseur. It’s like you’ve been transported to a small eatery in France, except at sea (with more attentive waiters!)
NCL has a lovely wine selection to complement every dish. Whether you prefer white, red, or sparkling, Le Bistro has something to tickle your taste buds. Raise a glass to Le Bistro – the fanciest restaurant in the NCL fleet, and the only one with an actual dress code.
While it’s one of our favorites, not everything is perfect at Le Bistro.
No matter how many times we try Le Bistro, for some reason, they just can’t get the Steak Tartare right. So if you are an aficionado of beef tartare, it’s probably best you skip this dish.

Dress Code at Le Bistro on Norwegian Cruise Line
So many people ask what the dress code is for Le Bistro on NCL. It’s really the only specialty dining restaurant on the Norwegian cruise ships that adheres to a strict dress code, and yes, they do usually enforce it! While it’s still “resort” casual, they expect a slightly elevated look for the guests. This translates into no jeans with holes, no shorts, and no hats, and while I have seen plenty of passengers wearing T-shirts, the hostess will likely purse his/her lips. So it doesn’t have to be elegant, but it’s also a bit at odds with the overall casual atmosphere of the rest of the ship.
