We came upon Bayfront Bistro by chance, and what a lucky chance it was! My husband and i enjoyed a wonderful meal after talking with a very attentive and knowledgeable member of the wait staff.

This restaurant is located behind the Publix Plaza, midisland. Lovely whether you dine inside or out...reservations are highly recommended...upscale, beautiful presentation of food and we have always had impeccable service. This is fine dining so prices are on the upper end of the beach establishments but knowing this before going in, it should not be a surprise...not a snooty atmosphere,... More

Bayfront Bistro is a Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast Award winner and the wine selection has 400 bottles to choose from, with something to please every palate.
