Lovely meal, we had the duck confit and the lamb with hand cut chips. Service was of high quality and I couldn't fault the meal at all. Definitely worth looking at when walking the strip.

Had a fabulous dinner. The food was spectacular and you simply must have the hand cut chips as a side. The lamb was cooked to perfection. The service was with a smile. I can't wait to come back!

Went there for a friend's 70th birthday party. Gina and her team had pulled out all the stops - great table decorations, great food, good service, good atmosphere. Thanks Gina

Having pitched up in Noosa for just one night and needing to eat near our hotel (Sun Motel) we trawled along the river side looking at various menus until we decided on Jellyfish. This decision was primarily based on the fact that it looked pretty empty at 6:30pm and unlike just about every other restaurant on the strip, the tables did not have reserved plastered all over them.

We asked if they could fit 2 in, which met with a puzzled look and the waitress disappeared for 5 minutes. We were going to leave when she came back and asked if we would mind sitting in the doorway at an unmade table. We assumed that all the other made up empty tables must have actually been reserved.

We sat, ordered drinks and food, the table was set and we waited. Interestingly, we were not the only customers that seemed to walk in on spec, it happened several more times and the same pantomime of finding a table ensued. Sometimes people were shown to nice outside tables, sometimes they were taken inside but in every case they seemed to have not reserved. To this day, we have no idea why we got the unmade table in the door?

Strange meet and greet aside, the food was terrific, as was the wine. Other reviews seem to share my observations on making a reservation here, but get past the wierdness and the food is well worth a visit. Don't get me wrong, the service is not bad, just wierd.

What a hidden treasure! A true culinary experience from breads to chic coated post desert goji berries! My husband and I don't get to enjoy the special occasion of a night out together very often; so when a relative came to visit and offered to babysit we were thrilled to check out a Noosa river restaurant! I am so glad we stopped here! Entree of scallops was a perfection of flavours and textures and their home made squid ink pasta was light and smooth! Absolutely every element if EVERYTHING that touched our lips was PERFECT!!! I can't wait to go back!!!
