The view from the Bistro's outside dining area is wonderful. Next door is a beautiful public garden also. Great spot to have some good food and take a leisurely stroll on a Sunday.

Four ladies had lunch on the patio. Even though the temps outside were on the 90’s, the patio is under the cover of the second floor which provided a light breeze and comfortable temps.

Variety menu was delicious. We each chose different meals, but the Chocolate Cobbler with ice cream was a crowd favorite.

The food was good and the view was even better. It was sandwiches, wraps, soup and salad type of place. The food was good and filling. You can feed your leftovers to the ducks and ibises that are around the lake if you don't finish all of your food. They weren't hanging out at the bistro but if you walk around the lake you will run into them.

We go to the Garden Bistro each year when we are in Lakeland. We love the view and the food is great.

I was in Lakeland two days on business and luckily discovered Hollis Garden and the Garden Bistro on my first day. I needed a space to have a relaxing lunch before getting back to work and a seat on the outdoor patio gazing toward the fountain in the lake was perfection.

The wait staff was pleasant and efficient beyond my expectations.

I had a delightful carrot ginger soup with side salad and was nourished body and soul.
