If you’ve ever wondered if there would be a restaurant where you could comfortably both start and end your day with an amazing view of a signature Aussie beach without sacrificing anything in the way of culinary delights? If you have, firstly, you have some very specific questions in your head. Secondly, I have good news: there is such a place. Its name is Bistro C.
I visited Bistro C as part of a boy’s weekend with my new mates in Noosa. We stayed on Sunshine Beach and Noosa was only a short drive up the road.
Bistro C itself is nestled in just off of the street in the main shopping and dining area of Noosa. If you’re not careful, you could miss it – while there are a lot of great dining options in the area, most of them overlook the street and have a bit of an Italian cafe vibe. Side note: I’m a fan of that style, just a bigger fan of Bistro C overlooking the ocean.
The first time that we went to Bistro C on the weekend was for dinner. My four mates all went for the eye filet of beef. None of them seem disappointed by looks on their faces. I went with the fresh local seafood spaghetti. From my account, it was pretty amazing. Considering I had a few drinks before we went out (it was a boys weekend after all), the pasta was exactly what I needed. I had a bite of a filet though and I’d say that there probably isn’t a bad selection on the menu.
Where I believe that Bistro C really shines though is for breakfast and/or brunch. You can truly witness the view of the beach and I can honestly say that the pulled pork and sweet potato hash ranks among my top three breakfasts of all time. It was absolutely gorgeous to look at and has an amazing combination of flavours. After you finish your meal, you’re literally meters away from walking out to the beach. Life doesn’t get much better than that.
