We visited twice in a week for dinner. Service is fantastic along with the quality of the food. Restaurant is high quality but with a relaxed and non pretentious feel to it. Highlight is the friendliness of the staff.

This little gem of a restaurant has been in Noosa for years. The food is always fantastic and the service exceptional. Seafood is a specialty and it is always so fresh. It’s always on our list when visiting Noosa. Kids are catered for too.

In the centre of Noosa on Hastings Street this modern Italian restaurant fits right into the elevated atmosphere. Good modern Italian dishes and a good Australian wine list. They even let us bring our well behaved Blue Heeler, as long as we sat outside at...More
