How lucky we are to have found this bistro within a 15 minute walk. It's not pretentious at all, like some so-called French restaurants. The menu is quite varied for such a small place, and the specials (daily? weekly? I wonder) were really special. We started with a wine specials, a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. A bold punch of fruit following a... More

We have been driving by this place for two years and never stopped. Went last night and had a great meal. The wife had the onion soup and duck confit, I had the cheese plate and mahi and both were excellent. We shared a chocolate dessert which was also great. Good service and "French Bisto" type decor. Will go back... More

We celebrated our anniversary in January 2015. Every course - escargots, salad, entrees, dessert - featured great sauces. As foodies, we have dined at many fine restaurants, and the food and service at this small bistro in Madeira Beach is right up there with some of the best. My wife had duck breast which was superbly prepared. I had mango... More

My bride and I quietly celebrated the passing of the old year and the arrival of the new year with masks and tooters that we received with dinner at the Gulf Bistro on Gulf Boulevard a few miles south of our new home on the beach. We had dined at the bistro back in 2012 and were more than a... More

Best French restaurant around the St. Pete/Tampa area. Every time I'm in town, this is a must have dinner stop. Friendly owners just add to the wonderful flavors. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

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
