“Great everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Over decades this establishment has evolved from a coffee and cake cafe to an unpretentious yet sophisticated bar and restaurant. Whether you're an international celebrity, a devoted local, an overseas tourist, a typical Aussie family, backpacker or member of the local bike club, this is where you want to be.
Situated on Hastings Street, people vie for front-row tables (French style). The menu is Australian cuisine with a hint of Asian flavours. Meals are cooked to perfection and presented artistically en plate.
Aromas is child-friendly and offers a well-thought menu to keep the little nippers fed and happy i.e. pizza, fish & chips, pasta, ice-cream. The bar is extensive, service is so friendly and professional.
Aromas is the place to sit and people watch or, to be seen! If dining in the early evening, look upwards into the massive tree shrouding this iconic bar/restaurant and you're guaranteed to see members of a possum family who reside in its' branches running from branch to branch. Great entertainment for everyone.
Sundays and on some nights mid-week depending upon the season, live entertainment is provided which creates such a holiday atmosphere and an invitation to get up, dance and enjoy all that Noosa offers.

“Great place for drinks when they have live music playing outside!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We came for drinks one night when there was a band playing on the street outside. Its a cosy place and the food looked good. (can't tell you anything about taste as we only had drinks) The staff was friendly and the service was good.

“Dined whilst listening to music!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I dined with 3 friends and 2 children for dinner at Aromas Noosa. It is a french looking cafe on the main street of Noosa. We had a fantastic time, there was live music being played in the square which kept the children entertained whilst we waited for our meals. When they arrived, we were more than happy with the size and quality of the meal. Kids took their scooters and rode around the square whilst we listened some more to the musician. The service was fabulous, with the manager always around and checking that everyone was being looked after.
All in all, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable night out - which is sometimes hard to achieve with young children in tow. Highly recommended!!

“Weekend away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We had to wait 10 minutes to be served but the opportunity to people watch was worth the wait. Coffee & apple rhubarb crumble average/good but the Turkish delight was very good.
