In the last couple of years we have started a tradition of an annual girls trip to Noosa. A key aspect of this trip is briefly becoming regulars at Bistro C , which ordinarily involves a daily visit, preferably timed with cocktail hour (which is happily two hours, from 3-5). During cocktail hour Thail Muels and Daiquiris (mango, strawberry or banana) are just $12 or you can order a bucket of Coronas instead!
Bistro C is open all day and night with different menus for breakfast, brunch, lunch, the afternoon and for dinner. We usually time our visit for just before 3pm to take advantage of the lunch menu (which finishes at 3) and so we don’t have to wait too long for our much needed cocktails.
Favourites for lunch include the coconut chicken salad ($20):
The salad is a nice, light lunch after a day on the beach. The salad has shredded tofu, snowpeas, capsicum and red onion and is dressed in coconut, chilli and fish sauce. The cashews add a nice crunch.
Another favoured lunch dish is the fish and chips ($21):
Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, there are four pieces of fish there! Given the generous serve we usually share the fish and chips between two and just order another side of chips ($7). Nothing quite beats eating fish while the sea is in full view and with a cocktail at your side, the scene nears perfection.
Visits to Bistro C for breakfast or dinner have never quite captured the magic of lunch for me. The great aspect of Bistro C is its comfortably casual atmosphere, perfect when you have been beachside all day and need a break from the sun. Don’t forget the cocktails!
