Fantastic experience

Chefs choice of tasting plates gave us the chance to experience flavour combinations we would never have experienced otherwise. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

As locals, we can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. It's a blend of Asian and Australian fusion using fresh, local seafood and produce. The food is crafted, not the sort of thing you can do at home and you can watch the chefs working, always a good sign a restaurant is of high quality. The scallops with a champagne sabayon is...

This is the best. Great asian inspired food. Don't go there if you aren't adventurous and willing to try things. Staff are the best i have seen on the sunshine coast and the food is awesome. Try the Kangeroo taste plate and the fish main.

Fantastic flavour combinations - but don't arrive ravenous or you will leave hungry. That said - the duck & scallops amazing! Pity the edamame marginally undercooked.

Have eaten here a few times. Our daughter even had her wedding reception there. The degustation menu is very special, and blew away the wedding guests who were not expecting such a menu for a wedding. The staff are friendly and can't help enough.

I took my family to Spice Bar and we had a perfect dining experience. My wife and I had the 10 course degustation which included the most delicious and exotic dishes I have ever tasted, with amazing flavours, aromas and textures. The menu isn't really intended for those with unadventurous tastes but we found dishes that our children enjoyed. The... More

Excellent food, albeit expensive. Service okay but could be friendlier and less pushy. Nice setting, wine choice is okay.
