Best Outdoor Bistro Sets for 2024

What Kind of Outdoor Bistro Set Should You Buy?

If you’re looking for furniture for a balcony, garden spot, or any small outdoor space, bistro sets are a great choice. They typically consist of two dining chairs and a bistro table, which ranges from 20 – 30 inches tall and no more than 50 inches in diameter. These sets are perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee or a warm summer night. Our experts are here to help you find the best outdoor bistro set for your budget and style. We’ve used the following categories to base our list on:

  • Value - Price is not the only factor to determine value. We also focus on the quality of materials, construction and design.

  • Durability - We consider the materials, construction and amount of care required to determine how durable a bistro set is. Even though our furniture is rated for outdoor use, some materials are more durable than others. Check out our Guide to Outdoor Furniture Materials and Patio Furniture Cleaning Guides to learn more.

  • Features - Cushions included (and the fabric they’re made of), table features and chair features (swivel, etc.) are those we consider that add value to a bistro set.
