Ate here with a group. Very nicely cooked grouper and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the coq au vin. Good rolls, nice greens, overall a great meal. Order wine in the bottle as by the glass it tasted like it had been open awhile. Good atmosphere, great service.

I joined my relatives and their friends to celebrate two birthday milestones. We were greeted at the door with warmth and a smile. Most of us ordered Table d'Hote (4-course meal) which is reasonably priced. We also learned that diners can bring their own bottle of wine so this is something to remember on return visits. Everybody enjoyed the fresh... More

Despite being locals we have not had the pleasure of dining at Gulf Bistro. After hearing a neighbor rave about their experience, we decided to try it. On a Saturday evening it was a full house with two lovely ladies taking care of us and others with grace and ease. We opted for the Table de hote' and were pleased... More

This was everything we were hoping for and more! Every dish was prepared with great attention to detail in both the taste and presentation. For a family of four who appreciate perfectly prepared fish this was by far our favorite restaurant of our five day trip. The house red wine by the glass even tasted like a $50 bottle. The... More

We have been to Bistro de France at least six times with many different folks. Most recently with an English couple who owned and operated a restaurant in England. They were joined by another couple who live half a year in France and they are regulars with high praise. As with any restaurant there are expectations and sometimes those expectations... More

We love the menu and the value that you get here. Very romantic and family owned. Very fresh ingredients and dishes cooked to order. Nice French flair and a great wine list. We have been there at least 10 times in the last 5 years. Always a pleasure.

Like some of the other contributors we are quite embarrassed by the fact that despite many frequent visits to Madeira Beach over the years we had not visited the Gulf Bistro. That has been our loss! The owners Marie and Frederic have quite something special here - lovely French food, Note NOT French style food like so many offer,but real... More

We visited Gulf Bistro yet again during our recent stay in St Pete's and it was excellent. Both the quality and service were up to their usual very high standards. Having overheard the high praise of other guests as they were leaving, they reinforced our view that this is probably the best restaurant in the area. We cannot understand some... More

We were initially on our way to our favorite fish dive, when we saw this place & remembered seeing it mentioned on this site. The funny part is that we have lived a mile away for a year & never noticed it because they have nearly invisible signage. We started with the French onion soup. The cheese looked & tasted... More

It's an easy to miss little place, tucked into a tiny shopping center next to the putt-putt golf. I had researched several places for me and my husbands 15th wedding anniversary. It is a French restaurant that may or may not be completely authentic, but was completely delicious!!! We had the pork pate, which is the rough vs. fine textured,... More
