About Le Bistro on Norwegian Cruise Line

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.

it’s one of our favorite Restaurants on NCL But not everything is Great 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.

What we love about Le Bistro:

  • Great atmosphere
  • Veuve Clicquot by the Glass (great if you’re on the premium plus package!)
  • The French Onion soup is amazing

What we didn’t love about Le Bistro:

  • The Steak Tartare looks like dog food (and doesn’t taste much better)
  • The prices are expensive if you aren’t using a dining package

Dress Code at Le Bistro (Important!)

So many people ask what the dress code is for Le Bistro on NCL . It’s 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.
