The Garden Bar Bistro is located in the heart of Abell Point Marina, Airlie Beach. The Garden Bar Bistro looks out over the Coral Sea and Whitsundays Islands. The Garden Bar Bistro is a short waterfront stroll from Airlie Beach and has convenient on-site parking. We have some of the best views in town, located on the marina foreshore and overlooking the water.

Offering relaxed and contemporary styling, extensive drink options from cocktails to craft beers, plus a fresh All-Day menu that has been designed with the easy-going Whitsundays’ attitude in mind, from gourmet burgers to locally caught seafood and share plates. Great options for kid’s, daily specials, great sunsets and live music on the weekends are just a few of the perks that guests can enjoy on a regular basis at The Garden Bar Bistro. Come in and enjoy the blend of great food, refreshing drinks, friendly service and in the perfect setting to enjoy the Whitsundays.

We booked online through their webpage but were met with abruptness when we arrived. We were told bookings didn't matter and just to find a table wherever was free. It was quite busy but we were fortunate enough to find a table for our party of 4. Just felt like a real hassle for the staff member who greeted us. Food and drinks were pretty good and reasonably priced. Bar tender was quite friendly and enquired how our food was when they were packing up for the night.
