My kinda place!

I love having the thought taken out of ordering so you can just get on with enjoying awesome food. This is exactly what happens at Spice Bar. My date and I both had option 1, the 5 course degustation menu. It offered just the right amount of food and each course had it's own thing happening but... read more

Been five or six times over the years to this gem. Have only ever done the degustation menu ( long one). Never fails. Friends who come along at usually end up fans as well. Nice work.

Enjoyed The Spice Bar experience twice now - absolutely love everything about the place - from the plates, glassware, cocktails & don't start me on the flavours of the food - just sensational. If you're visiting the Sunshine Coast - find this and enjoy!

Amazing food. Very satisfying yet didn't leave the restaurant feeling extremely full, just satisfied. Lovely calm atmosphere and not too noisy considering the flooring. The service was impeccable, Very enjoyable and reasonable food prices.

Our second visit. Taking an American visitor. A special place. Worl class restaurant - without the high price tag. Rare for me to accord 5 stars to a restaurant but this is deserved. Extreme travellers, we experience restaurants all around the world. As old farts, the noise was a bit much but we were numbed by the shear range of... More

As soon as we walked in the service was excellent. We chose a selection of small share plates and a nice bottle of red then added a couple more share plates as the meal went on. The food was amazing! However, the real shock was when we paid, the bill was quite reasonable. Would definitely eat here again!

Enjoyed lunch here. Very friendly knowledgeable staff who knew the menu well. Food was really good despite my preference for non spicy food (someone else chose the restaurant other wise based on name I would not have chosen this restaurant). My only complaint was that it was sooooo hot, temperature wise, not spice level. It was like a sauna. Would... More

Can't say enough about this place. We went with the degustation menu which included dessert and were not disappointed. Service was great and the food was amazing. There was nothing I could fault - the tamarind dessert was to die for! Sure it's not cheap, but for a special occasion I would highly recommend. Will return!

Chose Spicebar on basis of Tripadvisor rating. And can see why the ratings are so high. For $200 for a couple ( including tip) we had a steamed bun each and shared beef tataki and five spice squid. Then we shared two mains, pork cheek and beef fillet. For dessert we had fig and muscat icecream and banana fritter. We... More
