We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. If you live in a climate that allows you to dine al fresco fro time to time, you shouldn't have to be limited to plastic folding chairs and tables. We found bistro sets that are charming enough for a Parisian cafe, are just as comfortable as indoor furniture, and are made from materials that can survive the elements. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best outdoor bistro set on Amazon.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
