Great restaurant for the whole family

Not our first time as a family here and perhaps a great aspect is the kids menu is available unlike a lot of other restaurants. We had quite a large group of 10 which was accommodated very well by our hosts. The staff were great with the service and tolerated our questions on the menu and... read more

We have not managed to get to this restaurant on previous trips to Noosa, so this time all our dinner bookings were worked around this one. The food was STUNNING, unusual combinations, magnificent flavours, subtle. Outstanding wine selection. Excellent waitstaff. Something to dream about. Top of my list for next time we are in Noosa

The restaurant has changed and is now called Mr Jones. It is a very roomy indoor/outdoor dining restaurant. The service is great and the 4 of us ate there last night and everyone were very impressed with their meals. I had the 200g rib steak with large chips and salad. Others had barramundi and pork belly. All very quality meals... More

It pains me to review this restaurant in a negative way as the last time I was here it was superb, however that was then and this is now. We went for dinner and were the first to arrive, the point in mentioning it is the Chef was not under any pressure as our order was the first placed, it... More

A foodie? Yet you didn't even know what type of fish you were eating. We haven't served snapper for about 2 years. i won't even bother telling you, as you obviously can't tell the difference. The lemon mash is awesome, just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's bad. More

OMG... how disapointing !!! Dinner booked at 8.00 pm, first strange impression when entering the restaurant: nearly empty, oh used to be... More

By now many would know that we mainly do lunches , we prefer them to the bustle of dinners , and it's more likely the ingredients are fresher , and so are the staff ! Now we've read some of the exemplary reviews , and some of the less than favourable ones , and I must say , after today's... More

When we were seated at 7:30 a lady at the table beside us exclaimed to her friend that her meal was the best she'd ever eaten in Noosa. High praise indeed. An hour later we were saying the same thing. I ordered hand cut fettuccine with olives as a starter and it was not just well cooked it was perfectly... More

Many years Many dinners Back here again recently during a brief visit to Noosa. This restaurant maintains a high standard. We have never been disappointed. The menu is small but varied. The food is well presented. The service is punctual and polite. The wine list provides a reasonable range but I'd like to see more by the glass options. Thank... More
