The food was really nice. We really enjoyed the snails and loved the vacherin dessert. The service is beautiful. Perfect place for sharing good food and precious moments with friends and family in lovely Noosa.

We went for a family dinner and food was very good, the duck and the cheeks were succulent. Staff and owners were very kind with a very cozy and friendly environment.

The service was excellent, we were served by a lovely waitress (didn't catch her name) and she communicated with the chef and told that if we wanted meals the chef could start dinner early as he had finished his prep (we went originally for snacks and...

We went out for lunch and we had the lunch special. It was one of the best meals we had while we were in the noosa area. The food was fantastic and the service was just as good, I would highly recommend you go there if you can you won't be disappointed.

Visited here after reading reviews on here. Service was amazing without being intrusive also very informative about menu and our needs didn't try to oversell menu. Food was exceptional and really good portions. Good spacing between courses. Would thoroughly recommend.

A small nicely decorated French restaurant with an authentic atmosphere. Six for dinner. Between us we had garlic prawns, cheesy garlic baguette, chicken liver pate and pork terrine as entrees … and fish papillote, steak bernaise, roasted lamb roulade, and braised beef cheeks as mains … plus 2 different desserts. Absolutely delicious, and not one fault or complaint between the... More

Welcome to La Riviera Bistro!
Frederic cooks french traditional meals from our beautiful country for lunch and dinner and we have a selection of French Drinks; from traditional Aperitifs, to wines, beers, sparkling and of course Digestifs...
We are a small venue of 35 seats on the Noosa River by the Colonial Resort, 239 Gympie Terrace, located on a upper level from the foot path, so keep your eyes up and look for the blue/white/red Umbrellas.
We are open mostly Wednesdays to Sundays for Lunch and Dinner but occasionally on Tuesday nights as well during the busy season, like school holidays.
As we are the owners operating the business, we occasionally close throughout the year, please look up on our website or Facebook page for more details.
We look forward in welcoming you!
