Bistro

Market Bistro will open from 11am 7 days a week, offering a classic “bistro style” menu featuring house made pasta, and a great selection of dry aged meats and a bunch of export quality local seafood.

Our wine list will be interesting, constantly evolving and feature predominantly Australian and New Zealand producers.

A unique feature of the Bistro is the fact you can walk into & purchase wine from the Wine Store for retail prices then drink it in the Bistro (for a small corkage fee.)

Market Bistro will be a stylish, casual restaurant that is not stuffy or pretentious... It is professional, casual & truly local.

    This was our first time at Market Bistro after numerous recommendations. We loved the food, the wine list and the very helpful and friendly service. There was a hold up in the kitchen and the attentive waitstaff gave us complimentary bread and kept the wine flowing. We had a wonderful time at this establishment and will certainly be back with visitors and on our own.

    Fantastic entrees but I cannot understand when ordering an exceptional steak at $50 it comes with half a plate of chips and a bit of lettuce. ( that’s what I expect from a pub) not a 5 star restaurant.

    The food is not as good as it used to be. It lacks flavour and looks boring. The service was really bad, we waited 15min before the waitress even asked if we want drinks. When we had wine, my husband had to stand up to get the decanter and poor it ourselves.

    This is a true Bistro with a laid-back casual atmosphere. We had an impromptu lunch and the food and service, and the extensive wine list, were as good as any of the fine-dining restaurants in Melbourne. The price tag may dissuade some, but the same quality of dining anywhere else would cost twice as much. At last we have a world-class restaurant in Maroochydore.

    The cocktails were the highlight. After reading positive reviews we thought we’d try this funky looking establishment out. My friends got there before me where they were greeted with a man in a blue shirt who rushed them to the table and hurriedly told them he needs the table by quarter to 8. Puzzled my friends say yes we will be out of here by then. Waitress who took orders was lovely. But the scallops were over cooked and tasteless, rib eye was delicious but pasta (gnocchi) was super bland. The special desert apple pie was delicious but the tiramisu was dry and sugary. At the start the waiter asked if we’d like still or sparkling should have said tap, as $30 dollars later on water we were shocked! Absolute rookie mistake. Taste & quality of Food and welcoming needs work.

    hmm ..it's disappointing to go out for dinner and the food on the menu is not accurate, my pasta dish was served with frozen small prawns not king prawns as the menu read, the meat my daughter had was tough.the flavor was missing, When one pays high price's you expect quality. don't take this as a negative, but room for you to improve.
