The Spice Bar in Mooloolaba isn't just great, it's exceptional! We only decided late in the day (Saturday 26th July 2015) to dine out and it was no surprise that they were fully booked, however we were offered the opportunity to dine at the bar. Whilst this could have been a negative, it turned out to be an awesome experience.... More

Chose a Wednesday night for our dinner experience,I found the menu a little limited,although the food we selected was tasty and well presented,service was a little slow at times although the restaurant was busy,but as most people have booked they should have been aware of this and catered accordingly.Overall a pleasant dining experience,but as we are from Melbourne we are...

We shared 5 small plates, each one a taste sensation. Our waitress described each dish and helped us with our choices as there were so many to choose from. Thanks for a great experience

Service- Impeccable Atmosphere- Trendy and Cosy Food- we ordered 4 small plates (to share)and 1 large plate (shared) plus 2 desserts.. Between 2 of us.. We found this filling and satisfying. Beef Tataki- delicious thinly sliced quality beef with a tangy marinade.. Scallops- with sabyon sauce was our favourite savory dish.. Best I've ever had.. A must try! Okonomiyaki Duck-... More

We visited spice bar recently from New Zealand and celebrated our daughters birthday. We all love great food and we were not disappointed. Everything was deliciousness,plated beautifully and packed full of flavour. By far the best food we have had in many years of visiting Mooloolaba and we certainly will be back. My wife was in a wheelchair and the... More

The staff very friendly and accommodating. I don't get easily excited any more. But this restaurant it does it for me. The food of fresh quality and they... More

Spice Bar is wonderful. We had Option 1 Degustation which was great and tried things we haven't eaten before, thought we would not have enough food half way through but by the end we were definitely done. Beautiful tasty food and the service was spot on. They even adjusted the menu for my food intolerance. Well done Spice Bar!!!

Lunch with a friend. We chose Spice Bar because it rated so highly on tripadvisor. On arriving we were seated within a minute. Menus a few minutes later and lots of attention. Our questions about the menu were all answered in a friendly and knowledgeable fashion; in the end we had a degustation menu. Interesting food - a mixture of... More

We chose banquet option 1. It was 5 courses menu which included 10 tasting small plates. After we ordered, we just realized that we should order the option 2 which offered more food... But after the 3rd course we felt very full and had to slow down eating. Anyway, the food were delicious and the service was good.
