Probably one of the worst meals I have ever had at a restaurant that was supposed to be so highly rated. The coconut shrimp were so over cooked that they were way beyond crunchy !! The raw oysters were dime sized and had a bitter taste . My wife had Maui- Maui that was tasteless. Never go back there. Sunset... More

We were here toward the end of August when it's brutally hot, but the season is low, so we got right in at 6:00. Normally we like to sit outside when we can, and BSB has 3rd floor seating outside with a clear view across the street of the Gulf, but we had a wonderful table inside by the window... More

Beautiful bistro on the third floor over looking the gulf. Our waiter Scott was very knowledgeable and helped decide what we wanted to order. There were so many choices. The grouper was offered three different ways and we had two of them. Both were excellent. The duck was cooked to perfection as well. We will definitely be returning on a... More

I make a point to eat at this establishment every time I am on the Island. The veal was spectacular. The Duck is awesome. Great views, great service always worth my trip. Reservations Recommended.

The Bistro is the place to be if you're looking for fine dining in a very relaxed atmosphere. There is a variety of specialty martinis which are delicious! You must get the coconut shrimp for an appetizer ; it's the best I've had anywhere! I'm not normally a fish eater but the Apple crusted Grouper in a maple sauce sounded... More

I have visited this establishment a dozen times and always ordered the surf and turf which is excellent. But decided to try something different. The Apple crusted grouper caught my eye. It is served over fritters with an apple flavored sauce and a couple of Apple chips on top. It was amazing. I would definitely order this again. Lisa our... More

4.5! Awesome view and excellent service! Indoor and outdoor seating available - we were able to watch the sunset. Fresh bread comes with your meal and there is a wide variety to choose from on the menu.
