The Bistro boasts the highest Zagat rating for food and service in the state
of Florida. It is included in Zagat’s “Top Restaurants in America” and is
lauded by the guide for “the best food on the Gulf Coast,” “as good as any
in New York or Paris.”
The Beach Bistro is also an eight time recipient of Florida’s Golden Spoon
Award, bestowed on the Top Twenty restaurants in the State and has recently
been enthroned in the Golden Spoon “Hall of Fame.”
||The Bistro’s wine list has
received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for one of the best wine lists
“in the world.”
In September of 2005, Beach Bistro hosted a James Beard Foundation dinner at
the Beard House in New York, “the Temple” of American Culinary Art. The
Beach Bistro also boasts the best Gulf view anywhere.
Our ambition is to provide you with one of the best dining experiences that
you have ever had.
At this Anna Maria Island cubbyhole, voted No.
1 for Food on the Gulf Coast, “a chef with sand between his toes” conjures
up “exceptional” Floribbean fare (plus Med marvels like bouillabaisse that
“even the French can’t duplicate”), accompanied by 300-plus wines and served
by a “personable” staff; though it can be “crowded and noisy”, not to
mention “expensive”, bistrophiles say “it’s worth it”: “even death would be
a treat if these folks had cooked it!”
