Bueno!

We thought we would try something a bit different for Valentine's Day this year and glad we did! This is a well-established cosy little place tucked away in the Town of Seaside, and worth seeking out. Apparently it has not long been in new hands (a pleasant young couple) and when we visited, a... read more

Having lived in the town of seaside for nearly 4 years, I've always wanted to try this restaurant & tonight I am thankful I did! Absolutely flawless service, delicious food, lovely atmosphere, generous servings & very well priced wine! HIGHLY recommend Cucina Al Mare in The Town of Seaside, Marcoola. 10 out of 10. Just perfect :)

Very delightful dining experience was has by our small gathering on Saturday night. Service was very warm and polished and we were recommended some great offerings from the Dining Menu. The duck leg and breast over sweet potato was super tender and moist with delicious accompaniements; and relished to the last mouthfull. My dinner companions equally loved the Angel Hair... More

Live up the road and have previously enjoyed this restaurant with the old owners, I have attempted to enjoy the new owners but have come to the realisation that they have no idea when it comes to food and service. If theres a table of 3 please remove the 4th table setting also please learn how to cook a steak... More

We always loved coming here when we stay at Marcoola and considered it to be our little local so I'm reluctant,y posting this review. The food and service was always superb. Went there New Years Eve and we were very disappointed. Although the waitress was very pleasant when she took us to the table, it took a long time to... More

Went there two years ago and was fantastic, this time we all felt sick afterward and food was very average. Such a shame as it was a good restaurant previously. We won't be going back.

Had a lovely dinner. Food was fine. (though did find out that one of us was sick the next day). My complaint is that the corkage is $10 per bottle! We were a table of 4 & was hit by a $30 corkage fee. This is outrageous for the Sunny Coast. Won't be heading back anytime soon. Food was good,... More

Thank you for dining at Cucina Al Mare. We work very hard and being our lively hood it is important we receive great feed back. Being a 'fully licensed' restaurant we do not advertise or offer BYO, however we do have a very strict BYO policy which still allows our wonderful guests the opportunity to bring that 'special' bottle of...

We recently had dinner here on Saturday night. The food was amazing. While we ate, the restaurant became extremely busy but this did not slow down the friendly staff. I had read some mixed reviews so was not expecting too much, but it seems the new owners have taken some of the criticisms on board and are now running a... More

My boyfriend and I came to Cucina on a Saturday night, was a beautiful night. The food was spot on. Both eye fillets were cooked to perfection and the service was great. Will be returning!
