Description: 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!

“Very good quality French food”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

A pleasant, simple little venue with a warm friendly feel to it. Very good authentic French food prepared by a French chef and served by Melanie his wife. Not a large choice but what was on offer was very good quality. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go there again.
NOTE this restaurant is BYO make sure to take your wine with you.

“Fantastic meal, great value & outstanding service”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We came here for dinner during a week's stay in Noosaville. The food and service are just outstanding, from the time we made the booking to the cheerful hostess, Melanie, farewelling us good bye.

The French Bistro menu is simple and very generous in serving. We ordered a bouillabisse and a duck a l'orange dish. The seafood was really fresh, and the chef gave us an extra duck leg because he thought our one serve of meaty duck leg was...wait, get this, too small. What kind of bistro place does that?? :) And the baguette served for entree is to die for, so crusty, pillowy soft and aromatic, all at the same time.

Will definitely return to this place again if we're ever in Noosa. Also keen to visit on a day time so we can try out their cakes and pastries.

“Reviews are spot on”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Was looking for an eating place in Noosa for lunch today, so looked them up on Trip Advisor. La Riviera scored well so we gave it a go, and certainly did not regret it. Authentic French menu and chef, excellent choice and good service. Very reasonable pricing, which ensures a return visit when we are back in this beautiful part of the World. Well done, and thank you for such fine - and good value, dining.

“Authentic French cuisine”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Just enjoyed genuine French cuisine, delicious food, friendly, happy hosts, Melanie & chef Frederique. We all felt as though we were back on the Rivière in the south of France eating in a cute bistrot & enjoying all those authentic French dishes - canard a l'orange, boeuf bourguignon, escargots, crepes Suzette - superb!!
