We sat out the front which was magic! Bistro C is our favourite splurge when we go to Noosa, delicious, interesting and fresh flavours are worth every cent! It is like a well oiled clock with friendly, efficient service in a great location.

I love Bistro C. The food is fantastic and full of flavour. Good selection and always delicious Specials of the Day. The view is just perfect. Watching the waves roll in while dining here makes this a very special place to dine or late arvo tapas/wine.

The view was beautiful. Our table was not ready when we arrived and service appeared distracted. The barramundi special was delicious but the pearl cous cous accompanying the lamb was not cooked which significantly detracted from the beautiful lamb. The pork ribs were delicious. We had bought our own colouring and books for our 2 year old but were surprised to see they charge for a kid's colouring book.

I think the days of BistroC being one of the elite Noosa restaurants are gone. Website says dress standard “smart casual” but family arriving before us for dinner, kids in beach shorts and thongs, husband in jeans too long, runners, hoodie. Why did we bother to dress up smart casual?
Food menu was very limited and nothing jumped out at us as “must try”. We opted for the seafood spaghetti and served ourselves from a pan, taste was good but messy to serve.
I would sum BistroC as a family restaurant, nothing more.

Love bistro c. Usually it’s very child friendly and this time we are finding that’s not the case. The colouring books are $5 each! Never heard of this. And then in the end they didn’t have any left both time we came. The “free” colouring was plain small squares of paper and some broken pencils. That was disappointing. Never experienced this before. And paying for colouring books it’s ridiculous. I hope this improves as it’s a great spot for lunch and dinner for a family usually.

We had an amazing experience and outstanding food. The food was infused with a combination of delightful flavours and spices. All of our meals were 5 star quality and matched the wines! We were greeted by a welcoming host and our waitress, Sophie, was so wonderful and helpful. We hope to have her the next time we return! The view of the beach is magical! I highly recommend this establishment!

Great location and the presentation of the food is superb. Unfortunately the chef tries too hard and there were too many competing flavours which don't compliment each other. Also felt like we were on a conveyor belt with our waitress hurrying us through our courses which took away from what could have been a nice relaxing lunch.

Have been to Bistro C many times and it never disappoints. The food is really good, so are the cocktails, but the location and fit out absolutely make it. Definitely keeps the beach vibes without being too stuffy, yet still feels like a special occasion.

This restaurant is not safe for gluten-free or coeliacs.

I confirmed my meal could be done gf. I checked again when it was brought to the table and I was assured it was gf. Five minutes later a waiter came and apologize and said my meal was not gf. Manager on duty came to apologize and check but the damage was already done.

This is the second time this has happened at this restaurant. The same occurred last year when we visited. Best to avoid.

We are regulars at Bistro C and love the food however our last experience was spoiled by the poor accoustic quality of the restaurant. We were seated beside a large table containing a number of young children and could not hear ourselves speak with the noise levels. We were also constantly bumped by the children running uncontrolled around their table. Great food again but this spoiled what is usually a wonderful food experience.
