Girlfriends were in visiting and after the Tiki Hut Boats we decided on the Blue Bistro for dinner. Now, I have lived in the Lakes Region for almost 20 years and had not ever tried this restaurant inside the Naswa. We were not disappointed, many...of us had the Lobster Ravioli and it was delightful. Another friend had the salmon. The waiter was good but our only negative comment is that when the bill came it had added entrees that were not ours. Good thing we looked at the description, not sure how that happened but he resolved it quickly.More

A gracious welcome by the hostess, giving us a wonderful table with a view with no reservation! We were even offered to move to a better table just before our meal arrived and we did, and the staff moved us with little effort. We were...impressed! The menu was standard fare with nothing local offered: lobster, fish, scallops, chicken & beef as you would find anywhere else. Why are there no restaurants on this beautiful lake, surrounded by these incredible mountains that offer locally grown or raised food? The meals were average at best. Frankly I was disappointed.More

The Blue Bistro offers very good food and a wonderful view of the lake. In addition to the food we enjoyed the singer/piano-man. We ordered their haddock, chicken parmesan and burgers. Be sure to leave room for dessert as they were delicious! Thanks to Hyva...for the excellent service she gave us.More

After years of boating past the Naswa, we finally pulled in on a hot Friday evening and climbed the stairs to the restaurant itself, instead of its menu on the beach. What a wonderful venue. Views of the lake, darkened and cool, it was a...wonderful spot. And the food ... oh my. Not only a great menu, lots of seafood and steak dishes, wonderful sides, absolutely top-notch service, and the presentation was absolutely gorgeous. We were a party of 3 and each had something different and there was not a crumb left when done. Wonderful olive bread accompanied the meal, and the dessert tray was the nicest I have ever seen in 40 years of world travel, all made in-house by the family matriarch. Do not miss this restaurant, it is Laconia's absolute best. The soft live music beginning at 6 was wonderful.More

We were tired after a long day of driving and pleased to find a restaurant at our lodging site. Our server was off the charts warm, welcoming, professional, unobtrusive but there when we needed her. I think her name was Stacey (and am so sorry...I could be wrong). Lobster bisque was creamy, rich in flavor and filled with quality lobster. My husband had the prime rib and although it was not medium well as he requested it was reportedly very good. My “Greek salad” was a total disappointment. Although the lettuce was crisp and fresh, a few black olives does not a Greek salad make. The dressing did not approximate a Greek dressing. It was overly sweet (the chef told our server that it was made with honey), and lacking in traditional herbs and flavor such as lemon, oregano, quality oil etc. it should NOT be offered as a Greek salad but simply accurately described on the menu.More

My partner and I just came back from Naswa which is the home to Blue Bistro . I cant begin to say how delicious this restaurant is ! I had the most delicious Roma meatballs which typically I would not order meatballs at a restaurant...being Im Italian and usually no one can make them like Mom's but these gave her a a run for her money. I also had the Tenderloin tips which were the most tender tips I've ever had ! Cooked to perfection ! . My partner had the lobster Risotto which he could not rave about enough ! There were huge chunks of fresh lobster on top of the risotto ( something you never see ). If you visit Naswa you MUST eat at Blue BistroMore
