I gave you menu's ( not sure why i wouldn't) we are not and have never been a fine dining restaurant. We also decorated the plate for the... 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

Wine was fabulous, food was very average and certainly overpriced for the quality. I swear it was served with frozen peas and carrots - very 1980's. Other than taking our order and clearing away staff didn't engage at all. Bit disappoining, would have expected more

We had a wonderful night at the River Cottage; the staff were excellent making us feel very comfortable. The layout of the restaurant is very elegant and spacious, giving a pleasant and relaxing feel. My entree was scallops which were perfectly tender. The main was barramundi, perfectly cooked, white tender flesh with beautifully crispy skin. Also tried the coffee martini;... More

Had a dinner here during our week in Noosaville and would rate it one of the best meals that we have had. Fantastic décor matched with professional service. Had the prawns for an entrée - with coconut shavings and grapefruit - a taste sensation - perfectly cooked. For the main we have barramundi and gain well presented and tasted fantastic.... More

The River Cottage is in an excellent location, there is good parking and it is but a very brief stroll to the river. One is met, greeted and escorted to the table. The atmosphere is subdued without being dim. The staff are bright, cheerful and eager to assist. Celine is a real asset, she was our waitress for the evening.... More
