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

We had a great night recently at River Cottage. The food was excellent, the service attentive and the atmosphere mid week was perfect for a quiet intimate night for two. Only minor negative is that $20 corkage per BYO bottle of wine seems over priced.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a nice evening with us. If i could just correct one part of you review, we actually charge $10 per bottle ( similar to all other Noosaville restaurants) not $20 , which i agree, is too much. More

After reading several reviews and having a look at the online menu, we decided to choose this beautiful little gem. We weren't disappointed at all - the opposite! We surely enjoyed the wonderful (French) service and the fantastic (German) cuisine! The scallops on truffle risotto were a dream, the bread rolls with French butter as well! My husband's steak was... More
