“Nice dinner”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We came in for a relaxed pizza and bottle of wine, sat at the bar and was perfect. Pizza was good and calamari also, cocktails and service also good.

“Beautiful Restaurant-Poor Management”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Had dinner at Locale last night as it came highly recommended.The set up is very nice, we enjoyed the menu and wine list. Service was excellent, food was nice. Unfortunately a group of families with "out of control" children were allowed to run riot, screaming and shouting, disturbing the dining experience for everybody. The manager (might have even been the owner), did not make any attempts to calm the situation or asking the Partents to control their children. Any other restaurant would have asked the people to keep the noise down or to leave, rather than making every other guest suffer. Definitely not a place to go if you are looking for a relaxed, peaceful dinner experience.

Locale N, Manager at Locale, responded to this review, 24 April 2014
We would like to apologise that you feel as though your evening at Locale was interrupted by families with children. At the time of your visit we were in the middle of our busy school holiday period and given that we are located on one of Australia's premier holiday destination strips and opposite the main beach it would seem unavoidable that there would also be children dining at the restaurant over this period. Although we respect the fact that families on holiday also enjoy dining out and are certainly most welcome at Locale we do expect that parents and carers respect that there are other diners who do not necessarily wish to be disturbed by the noise of others. We feel that it is a parents duty to manage the behaviour of their children however we would certainly intervene if in fact there were "out of control" children running riot in the restaurant. We would like to thank you for dining at Locale and for your review and we hope that you do choose to come again to dine with us again however that perhaps your reservation it is at a later time slot when there are less children and possibly outside school holidays.

“Over rated. ”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Looks great, but the food was below average, and over priced. Avoid unless your a rich old Italian wannabe. Disappointing overall.

“Great, just great!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

This place is visually stunning and when it is lit up for dinner, it feels very special. We had a great table near the front, so were away from the main body of the restaurant. It could get a bit noisy in there I think.
Our waiter was James and he was fantastic. We went with his recommendations for everything and I don't think we would have chosen those dishes without his input. I had the seafood pasta for entree which was light and delicious. However, the main was the star, the veal is the best I have had anywhere in the world. It was perfectly cooked and simply melted in your mouth. We finished with the Tiramisu which was unbelievably good.
This is a great addition to Noosa dining. We will be back for sure.

“Not a patch on Lindoni's”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Beautifully decked out. Food average. Scallops were raw. Tiramisu in a glass a big dissapointment - rancid cream. Waiter did not ask why dessert was barely touched. The menu is different to Lindoni's and not in a good way. We were huge fans of Lindoni's but won't be eating here again.
