Nice place, great staff

It just works, good food with friendly staff. The place is sort of split in two which allows people to find their own cosy corner and get away from a noisey crowd if required. Good sunny deck that takes in the river and is great for wqtchign the world go past

Great spot, occupying the corner of James St and Gympie Tce. it's usually always sunny with great open access and view out across the road from the river. We found ourselves having several breakfasts, (great special until 11am only $6.50 for either poached or scrambled eggs, toast and bacon or tomato). The lunch $20 special was also a great inducement... More

My friend and I attended for a meal here as part of a leaving-noosa treat. We ignored the fact that despite how the restaurant zacharys next door was heaving, lazy river was empty but for one table of one person. We requested a table for 2 and were told to "sit wherever". Throughout our entire stay we were largely ignored... More

We had loved the previous restaurant here so we decided to try Lazy River for a birthday celebration. From the man who took the phone booking to every member of the staff on the night, everyone was so friendly, helpful and efficient. The menu was enticing as were the daily specials and such huge servings. No minute little parcels or... More

Our last evening in Noosa we went down to Gympie terrace to find somewhere to eat and came across Lazy River. We sat outside the waiting staff were great, the food was lovely with good sized portions and the prices reasonable. They have a good selection of food and drinks and with a lovely atmosphere. We went down midweek in... More

This place is situated on a corner with a view of the river just across the road. The food is of a reasonable standard and the staff are friendly. We were able to call in during the evening to enjoy a cup of coffee, which although ok, was not always of the same standard.

We headed back to the Lazy River with excitement after our first dinner experience. What a shame it ended in dissapointment! I think there were only 2 staff on, no sign of the Manager from our last visit and the place was not running smoothly at all. Our Waitress seemed rattled when we asked for the specials board and dissapeared... More

We go here at least once a week. We are local's so take advantage of there $6.50 breky. Coffee $3.50. Great for long lunch's and Romantic dinners over looking the Noosa River. Families welcome too. We usually go for special occasions or meet people there for long catch up lunch's. There's a lovely comfy sofa to relax on after lunch.... More

located on Gympie Terrace Noosaville, im sure this was called by another name 12 months ago. great location, we sat at a table that took in the river views and spent a lazy couple of hours tasting some great seafood, including squid salad and local schnapper. Black board specials for lunch.
