Despite being new owners, I could'nt fault the food. My steak was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was fantastic & the owner cared enough to introduce herself, had a chat & was very welcoming. Im excited to see the new changes & will still make it a regular dining experince. Well done guys 👍

We have visited Cucina Al Mare a number of times as a couple, with family or friends. There is something on the menu for everyone including the fussy eaters! I have never had a disappointing meal; we will continue to return whenever we can. I couldn’t fault the food if I tried.

We had dinner here last Saturday night. Not easy to find at night for out of towners but very popular with locals. The restaurant was busy with several large family groups. Fortunately we had an early booking and ordered soon after arriving. Our meals came quickly and we enjoyed the food but unfortunately the chocolate dessert was unavailable! Good coffee.... More

This is such a cute little restaurant opposite a park on a lovely tree lined street in the Town of Seaside residential area just off David Low Way, Marcoola. It is lovely sitting out on the large terrace overlooking the park. They light lots of candles and flares to give a lovely night-time ambiance. The food we have had on... More

After reading other diners' reviews in Trip Advisor, we decided to get takeaway pizza and pasta to eat while we watched the Friday night footy in our hotel room. The staff member who gave us advice on what to order,and the sizes of servings, was very helpful and friendly and, as we wanted gluten-free meals, she explained that the pizza... More
