Normally we find a restaurant that is attached to a hotel not always to be a good thing . This little Bistro has fabulous service, great views of the bay and good food. Would eat there again and found it to be reasonably priced.

The three of us had a lovely dinner at the Bay View Bistro. We had the daily special spaghetti and meatballs, which was excellent. We enjoyed the wine, dessert, and coffee as well. It's a small (intimate) restaurant with a beautiful view.

February 22, 2017. Florence Oregon basically sits next to the Pacific ocean. In that regard I expect that salmon in restaurants on the Pacific ocean to be as good as one can get. Today I was surprisingly disappointed in the Coho Salmon dinner at the Bay View Restaurant at the Best Western motel. The presentation was awesome, however I could... More

Just the view across the Siuslaw River looking at Florence is enough just to make you want to be there. Really something to see on a clear night. We were there on a slow night so of course the service was excellent. Jessica was the best. Really made it feel like we were welcome. She was hostess, bartender, waitress and... More

What a find!! The food was exceptional with an affordable price. Our waitress Jessica was so friendly and also help me pair a glass of wine with my meal. When you walk through the doors of the restaurant the first thing you see is a beautiful view of the bay and the bridge, like I said it's a treasure !!!

Description
Nestled above the Siuslaw River, the Bay View Bistro is located inside the Best Western Pier Point Inn but this is NOT your average hotel restaurant. Come for the spectacular view, but stay for the delicious food and superior service. The Bay View Bistro has a cozy, beautiful bar and dining room overlooking Old Town Florence, the historic Siuslaw Bridge and Siuslaw River. We have a wonderful happy hour, early bird specials and chalkboard specials changing daily. Reservations Recommended.
