highlighted with the season’s finest ingredients. Inspired by the wind that sweeps through the south of France, the restaurant’s decor is reminiscent of Provence with hand picked French pottery, high ceilings and arched floor to ceiling windows that evoke a feeling of warmth and sophistication. Mistral’s dramatic dining room serves dinner nightly and Sunday Brunch. In our bar and comfortable lounge area we also offer craft cocktails and fine wines to compliment Chef Mammano’s menu

Had a wonderful brunch at Mistral. The crab omelet and salmon Benedict were really good. The place has a nice ambiance and feels very international, there were several different languages spoken at the tables around us.

The restaurant is brightly decorated, light colored and beautiful. There is a lounge area and a bar for waiting if you arrive before the opening time. For starters, we had the special for the day - salmon tartare and beef carpaccio. The tartare is amazing, definitely my favorite dish of the night, the refreshing flavor of the salmon mixed with the deliciously creamy avacado, drizzled with a light oil/vinegarrete sauce, what a perfect marriage of ingredients. Absolutely delightful. The beef carpaccio was thinly sliced with a good amount of croutons and herbs, I love how the intense flavors of the Parmesan cheese adds to the delicate flavor of the carpaccio, it would have been more perfect if there was less olive oil on it. I got the salmon risotto as the main dish, could not resist. The salmon was perfectly cooked, the skin slightly crispy and the meat cooked just to the perfect degree to be tender but not raw. The risotto is less creamy than I'd like but still delicious. For the dessert, I got the lemon posset, perfect balance between citrus and sweet, smoothly blended posset, perfectly creamy and well balanced with the delicious fresh fruits and dessert crumbs. Yum.
The only negative is that the bar is directly behind the diners and it can get quite loud if you are sitting very close.

Loved the location (it's in an old bicycle factory) and the food was awesome. It's a great spot for a nice dinner out to celebrate.
