This is the first time we have been to the River Cottage, having missed out last time. We had the fixed price menu, 3 course for $45. Servings were quite small, but delicious, so if you are a big eater better to go for the full menu. You can byo during the week, corkage $10 per bottle. The wine list... More

As a first time visitor to this attractive little restaurant we were surprised at the good menu selection and the pleasing ambience of the interior. My wife's Ricotta, spinach and pumpkin strudel was, she said, one of the nicest vegetarian dishes she has had in Noosa, whilst my own Veal scaloppine with mushroom ravioli was a very creative approach to...

Was last here in Sep 2011. As before nice decor. The serving staff are friendly. The food was up and down to my mind. I had the beef cheek for an entree, lacked seasoning and the heavy topping of parsley was off putting. For the main I had a veal chop which was cooked very well but the vegetables less... More

Lovely setting being in a little cottage just back from the river. However I think it was a little over priced for the area.

Great service & venue We were disappointed with the food. Two of the four entree's were absolutely brilliant however the mains were average and the deserts were just Ok. A good wine list.

Returning to a restaurant is always a good test: was last time a happy accident, or is it really as good as it seemed? In the case of River Cottage, it's clear that the freshness of the food, the enthusiasm and the inventiveness of the chef are unchanged. While the main courses were consistent with the best we've had there,... More
