Qantas can do Brisbane to Paris for $1,572 but why would you bother when you can get it all here: ✔️Fabulous French food ✔️Great French wine ✔️Friendly French service (that doesn't come with attitude) ✔️English spoken ✔️Overlooking the Noosa River

Great French food in a relaxed atmosphere. Traditional dishes, like onion soup, seafood soup, Orange duck, fish Provençal, etc very well done. And the desserts - especially the vacherin - superb. Not expensive, and neither are the French wines by the glass. Friendly host too.

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!
