Inspired by a Roman Goddess renowned for feasting and hospitality, Castaways Bibesia Beachfront Restaurant is in one of the most spectacular locations in Australia – flowing onto the sands of tropical north Queensland’s Mission Beach.
Bibesia Beachfront Restaurant, named for the Roman Goddess Bibesia, who with Edesia presided over Roman banquets, forms the centrepiece of Castaways Resort & Spa, Mission Beach – unforgettably located on the absolute beachfront of the palm-fringed Coral Sea.
Bibesia offers a new beach club concept to the tropical north, complete with sensational seasonal cuisine, cool cocktails and funky styling.
The seasonally influenced menus and daily specials begin with the freshest and finest produce sourced locally. Talented chefs create menus to deliver fine food to match the inspiring Coral Sea and island views.
Our award-winning restaurant offers all-day dining and can cater for important delegates of your event or conference, or guests of your special beachfront wedding.
Pictured below right is one of the desserts from our exquisite new menu – it’s a pickled ginger panacotta, dragon fruit jelly & toasted coconut. Ooooooh la la!
