We've just returned from a fabulous meal that was scrumptious but didn't leave us bloated. Between us we had the $45 set menu: Duck liver Pate, Pork Belly, Chocolate Pot and the Venison. The Pork Belly was the best I've ever had and my husband loved the Venison which was cooked to perfection . The staff were amazing as was... More

We have eaten at River Cottage about 6 times in the course of visits to Noosa over the last year. Every meal, whether from the a la carte or the fixed price menu has been excellent. One of the very best was actually from neither - more sort of BYO! I caught a 2kg Pearl Perch and Marc served it... More

We've been a month in Australia and this ranks as one of my favourite meals in Australia! We opted for the fixed price menu and were told the portions would be smaller than the al a carte menu but you wouldn't have guessed the sizes were fine (and we can eat!). The starter, the fig and pear with the walnuts,... More

Reading recent reviewers' comments (see Judy P's of a few weeks ago), it's clear something has changed at River Cottage lately. It's the ungenerous portions - even, it seems, from the a la carte menu. We made a worse decision than Judy P - we ordered the fixed price menu, $45 for 3 courses. Trouble was, the dishes were the...

I'm sorry, but we tell every table that looks at the ' smaller' fixed price menu, that the portion sizes are smaller. We chose to run this menu alongside our a la carte menu as an additional smaller ' degustation type' menu for those who would not normally have three courses. It is designed as a complete meal. We added... More

We had dined at the River Cottage about 4 years ago and were very disappointed . With a change of chef we decided to try again. We booked about a week in advance to ensure we had a quiet table. Thursday night at 7pm the restaurant was not busy and our waitress was very attentive. Wine list is extensive and... More

It contained approx 200 grams of seafood ( scallops, salmon, a large prawn and mussels) and topped with mash potato and served with a full side serveof lcoally grown... More

We dined here for an early dinner and loved the quiet ambience of the restaurant. Staff are helpful and the team appears to work very well together. The flavors and textures of the fettuccine entree are still being spoken about by our party of five, and the mains all hit the spot. Serves are generous and flavorsome. No room for... More

Lovely meal. Lovely staff. Chose 40 dollar two course meal and it was plenty. Partner had dessert from my option turning it into three courses for 45- I couldn't have eaten two a la carte choices - they were big. Enjoyed the cocktails too. :-)

This is our favourite Noosa restaurant. We had another great night here recently. The standard of food and service is still excellent now it has changed from River House to River Cottage. We have been coming here every year and had our best meal here again this year.
