Description: The new cool in Noosa dining is at Gaston Bar Bistro. A stylish and edgy fit out, the restaurant boats an incredible selection of food and wine. The service is relaxed and friendly. Snacking is something Gaston excels in. If you are just dropping in for a glass of Ribeauville pinot blanc or a Peroni - hit the Chinese chicken or the pizzetta or maybe a little iron pot of sizzling garlic prawns to share.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

Interesting menu with very good specials. Stays open later than most restaurants in the area. Service perhaps a little over the top. We returned a couple of times.

“We keep coming back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

For the most part we don't hit Hastings St very often, but I won't go off on that rant... The point of my review is the fact that on the occasions we do come in to Noosa itself looking for a good, cruisey, casual meal or snack (with a decent drink), we end up reverting to this favourite. There is always someone out front who knows what they're doing, & the place always has a pretty good mood about it. Today there were other lovely staff on, but Koby made our Sunday morning! From walking up the front steps to heading out the door at the end. Had his other tables in a good mood, too - champion attitude & service skills. Also as importantly as ever, we weren't disappointed by the food. Pretty safe bet every time.
Thanks to the Gaston team, both ends of the house.

“Go for their dinner special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

We were introduced to Gaston by locals who go there regularly. And we could see why.
The staff have that professional balance of fun and efficiency that means you don't wait ages for your meals to arrive, and they seem to cope with any cheek or curly requests thrown their way.
During our 10 days in Noosa we had dinner there on three of those nights -- and chose from their 'special' menu each time. They don't offer it every night [I think week-ends miss out] and it's certainly good value. For A$55 a couple get two mains [there's usually a choice of three dishes] and a bottle of wine. For example, each us had pork belly and a decent shiraz -- and, if you're super hungry, you can always add a entrée to your selection, which we did more than once !
Whatever we ate at Gaston was well prepared, well flavoured [superb Asian salad one night] and to be recommended.
These guys have worked out what the punters -- especially the locals -- like, and it's no wonder their tables are always filled.

“Fantastic breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

The first time we went for breakfast. They had smashed avocado on the specials board. It was the best we have had. Beautiful fresh avo on sourdough with perfectly poached eggs, some fresh chilli, coriander and rocket. The latte was perfect too.
Went back two days later to go around again but a different chef and a different specials board. The lovely waiter spoke to the chef who said she would have a go for us. Second time around, just as good.
Thanks Gaston, will certainly be back when we next visit Noosa

“No atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Dined at night and felt it was a bit soulless. A friend had recommended the chilli prawns which were very nice and my husband had the fish and chips which he said was okay but not wonderful. I think there are nicer restaurants if you want to eat near Hastings Street and some with a view of the beach.
