A complete guide to Cairns Restaurants

Al fresco Bistro Restaurants

Bistro

A bistro is a small bar, tavern, or informal restaurant that serves alcoholic drinks and food. The atmosphere in a bistro is usually more relaxed and informal than a restaurant, and some bistros have poker machines on the premises.

Bistros can be loud places where young people congregate to have a fun time, a cheap meal, and a few drinks. If you are looking for a romantic hideaway, avoid a bistro. If you are looking for a great time with friends where you can laugh out loud, head for your nearest bistro.
