We had a great meal here. They explained the whole menu, let us take our time ordering, and asked us about the timing of the various dishes we'd ordered. Definitely on the' go back and try the rest of the menu' list

We shared several small dishes- the scallops were sensational and the calamari delicious,... More

Great restaurant with the degestation menu to die for. No one should visit Mooloolaba without having either lunch or dinner at the Spice Bar. Staff are amongst the most knowledgeable wait staff we have met anywhere in the world.

The whole night was memorable because the staff were so informative about the food being ordered and then served and also very friendly. They also had nothing but the best to say about their boss who was the owner / chef. A good sign!!!... More
