“Excellent European Style Restaurant - a Gem!”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

When you drive along Gulf Boulevard in Maderia Beach you need to be careful that you will not drive past this unassuming but excellent restaurant.

The restaurant is run by a French Chef and his wife, and the service and food is something not to be missed!

If you want plates piled high with food then forget it!, but what you do get is food that is excellently prepared and presented.

Do not miss it!!!!!!

This place is a real find. Food and service are all wonderful. They have a lobster Bisque that is just out of this world.

“Authentic, quaint atmosphere and fabulous food. A wonderful dining experience!”
Reviewed February 23, 2010

12 of us dined at the Gulf Bistro and everyone raved about their meal. The food was delicious and the service was great. I often order lamb when I go out and this was far and away the best lamb I have ever had! The asparagus appetizer was fabulous and the desert crepe was scrumptious.
