Small but cozy, very friendly staff, and the food was wonderful. Warning: the burgers are huge! Will definitely repeat when we return to Topsail.

After eating at every reputable establishment on and immediately off the island, I can say that the Bistro is consistently what I would consider the best meal on the island. I've never ordered a meal that wasn't to my 100% satisfaction. Sure, the price is a little high, and the seating is a bit cramped (which can sometimes equate to... More

We made reservations for a party of seven and were seated once we arrived. We were told by the waitress, who was good at her job, that they make everything fresh and try to use local ingredients so the menu constantly changes. We all split the following appetizers: tuna , crab dip and calmari. All were very good. The calmari... More

By far, the best restaurant in Surf City. The menu is interesting and the wine list is broad. On this night, I had the Pork Belly with ham risotto and an egg on top. My guest had the 14 spice ribeye, which looked and smelled wonderful. You could see the eat melting in their mouth. The wine list is pricey,... More

The Bistro is a nice small restaurant with an intimate setting. Service was good and the staff member was attentive. Our group of four tried different dishes and found all to be good. The restaurant offers unique drink and entree specials. Definitely recommend it for a nice dining experience.

We visit the Bistro every time we go to Topsail for an elegant and delicious dinner. This time was no exception - my husband had the ribeye and I had the shrimp and buttered crab - both were fabulous!

After viewing this restaurants website i thought my wife and i had found a hidden gem on this quiet island. We are both foodies as she worked in a NYC fine dining restaurant through college and i still slave away as a sous chef of a great place in the outer banks. I was expecting some killer local shrimp on... More
