This is a lovely restaurant and we had an enjoyable family meal at La Riviera. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food was great, good and not so good. Entrees that were raved about were the Pate & Terrine Plate and Seafood Bisque. The onion soup was nice without being special, it needed to be richer and the snails... More

Our first visit to this restaurant was on Mothers' Day this year, for lunch. We hadn't made a booking but we were found a table and then had a very enjoyable 2 hour, relaxed meal. Three days later we went to La Riviera for my wife's' birthday. Again the meal was superb, the staff attentive and the service first class.... More

I thought the food tasted authentic and it was very good indeed. I had snapper with a Mediterranean type sauce with tomatoes, capsicum, olives .... My husband had chicken breast with a lovely garlicky sauce and then profiteroles ( which was a two course special for $25). He had an Italian beer and I had BYO wine. The place is... More

We love this place, the service is always fantastic and the food is authentically French. It's topped off with lovely views of the river. Lunch on this visit was perfect.The onion soup was divine, the beef cheeks tender and the lamb was perfectly cooked. The potato gratin is a must-have. We always recommend this bistro to our friends and look... More

Beautifully prepared authentic French food. Great setting overlooking the river. Very professional French speaking service. Great selection of French wine. One of the best Creme Brulee I have had (including many places in France)

Authentic French bistro. Seafood bisque was full of flavour with a punch. Scallops were very tasty. Chicken, mushroom, and camembert crepe was divine. The crème brûlée and the chocolate and raspberry tart were a great end to the meal. Good value for money. All made fresh by the owner/chef on site. Wonderful service from the owner/hostess who is from the... More

My partner and I ate at La Riviera Bistro last night. We were blown away by how delicious everything we had was. We had the escargot, seafood stew, braised beef cheek and a creme brulee to top it off, everything was on point along with the wine and coffee afterwards. We sometimes suffer from food envy but of all the... More

The food was really nice. We really enjoyed the snails and loved the vacherin dessert. The service is beautiful. Perfect place for sharing good food and precious moments with friends and family in lovely Noosa.
