Restaurant Review

Daniel's Bistro By The Sea is one of the top restaurants in the Avon By the Sea - Belmar area

Owned and operated by Co- owners Executive Chef, Daniel and Karen Pichard, they continue the tradition of being the best restaurant in Avon By The Sea.

The reason to come to this fine dining spot is to experience the culinary skills of French-Canadian Daniel Pichard. Chef Daniel Pichard, formerly of Martha's Vineyard in Clifton, Pino's in Marlboro, as well as the current Pt. Pleasant Beach Daniel's Bistro location, is masterful at creating a well prepared menu using fresh ingredients.

Chef Pichard is passionate about cooking and is committed to an attention to detail along with a knack for unexpected fine touches found at the high end fine dining restaurants. For example, the beginning of your dining experience comes with a complimentary serving of an exceptionally tasty small bowl of soup with bruschetta accompanied by a choice of two warm bread servings.

The final touch comes at end of the dinner with yet another complimentary serving of fresh cooked, tasty brownies accompanying the check..

Daniel's Bistro By The Sea is set in a small store front building along busy Main Street. The dining area is small, cozy with soft dimly lit, lighting. The walls are done up with soft earth toned creme and tan colors adorned with large color photos of the Jersey Shore. Tables are spaced very close together, set with white linen coverings, a dimly lit candle, and a fresh rose in a small vase.

During the warm summer months there is outdoor sidewalk dining.

They also have a restaurant in Pt. Pleasant Beach. Daniels Bistro at 115 Broadway.

Daniel's Bistro By The Sea is open with seasonal hours. During the summer they are open Monday - Thursday: 4:00 pm - 10:30 pm; Friday - Saturday: 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm; Sunday: 4:00 pm - 9:30 pm
