Intimate new dining spot Bisque brings fine French fare to Broadbeach Waters

The former home of Nero Dining in Broadbeach Waters has been given a new lease on life, with French restaurant Bisque recently taking the space left vacant by the longstanding fine diner. The intimate 30-seat venue is aiming to bring a new wave of authentic French fare to the coast's dining scene, with classics like vol-au-vent, fish du jour, creamy escargot and crepes Suzette gracing its debut menu.


Bisque promises to let you ‘experience what a true love affair with food can be’ by melding traditional French fare with a touch of modernity to create an evolving menu that’s driven by the season’s best produce. Those lucky enough to be familiar with French food can expect to be delighted by the classic dishes and authentic flavours on Bisque’s opening menu – and if you’re yet to really experience the true tastes of France, now is the time to open your eyes to this rich and comforting cuisine.

Seafood is ultimately the hero of Bisque’s menu, with the dishes tweaking depending on the fresh catches that arrive each day. You’ll be choosing between sea-based starters like blue-swimmer-crab bisque with handmade grissini, vol-au-vent topped with local tiger prawns in a creamy-garlic sauce flambeed with Pernod, and seared scallops with confit pork belly, brassicas and calvados sauce. From the land, think duck-liver pate with smoked salmon, house-made pickles and baguette crisps, French onion soup with gruyere croutons and, for the adventurous – traditional escargot in a garlic-brandy butter, encased in golden puff pastry.

For the main event, there’s fish du jour with sauce vierge on sauteed potatoes with snow peas, asparagus and lemon beurre blanc, a Southern France-inspired chilli-prawn linguine, eye-fillet mignon wrapped in Bangalow bacon, and chicken breast filled with Moreton Bay bug and local tiger prawns in a garlic-and-chive cream with sauteed potatoes, snow peas, truffle carrot and chicken jus. A friendly tip – you’ll absolutely want to save room for dessert. Think pear tarte tatin with macadamia ice-cream, chocolate crumble and pear gel, a white-chocolate and passionfruit creme brulee, freshly made profiteroles with Baileys cream, creme caramel with butterscotch snaps, and crepes Suzette with an orange-Cointreau sauce and French-vanilla ice-cream. Ready for a French affair? Oui! Bisque is now open – head to our Stumble Guide for its opening hours, address and contact details.
