A touch of elegance graces a spacious setting surrounded by lush greenery, with an open grassed area for ceremonies and special occasions or to simply soak up sunshine by the water. Tantalising modern Italian cuisine is paired with award-winning wines from Australia's most bountiful regions and imported from Europe to complete a memorable dining experience. Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar can be reached by road or boat along the beautiful Noosa River, and is one of the premier dining establishments on the Sunshine Coast.

This restaurant has been around for eons sitting quietly in an alcove on the canal to Noosa waters and tucked in behind the much more high profile Noosa Yacht and Rowing club. It has changed hands a couple of times and my wife and I had not visited since it became the Noosa Waterfront.

We have been working our way around the Noosa / Tewantin area trying to source the best fish and chips. Finally it appears that we may have found a solution. The venue has always been well located, and the latest version sees open plan dining with a take away counter with its own entrance (although we came in via the restaurant entrance). There are still the couchs to lounge around on if there is a wait for table, but no waiting on this occasion.

Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Staff engaged us in local chat but remained efficient and were in no way intrusive. .Menu reads brilliantly with many options appealing, but we remained focused on our mission to try the fish and chips. Fish was slightly scented with nutmeg - different but delicious. Chips were just as we liked them and the aoili was excellent.

The corner table with views of the sunset and passing traffic across the pedestrian bridge and a couple of beverages with our fish and chips proved a wonderful way to sign off on a busy Friday. Bliss - we will be back - I want to try the calamari.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Would be suitable for couples, families, gatherings of friends and business dining functions.

We have taken the walking path over the canal at Noosaville for a few years and have strolled passed this restaurant many times but not dropped in. Last Saturday night we did drop in and were not expecting too much but a quick meal. We were shown to a table for two right on the canel so had the breezes from the river to coo land the fish in the canal performed to let us know we were near the water. The service was impeccable with the wait staff very well versed on the menus and offering very good advise on the best selections. The food was extraordinary and the selection of wines almost perfect to provide the perfect companion to a dining experience. We keep asking ourselves why hadn't we taken advantage of this gem before. Really a 5 star evening and it will not be too long before we return.

An impromptu Sunday lunch had us heading for the yacht club, but after some surly service and stifling atmosphere (literally) I investigated the restaurant next door (Waterfront) and we decamped to a much nicer venue which was a blessing in disguise. The service was impeccable, the food sublime, and the wine list well considered and reasonably priced. The restaurant is light and airy, and they do all the little things well - like topping up water glasses regularly with ice water which was actually icy cold. Figs and Persian fetta were quality, as was the Barra and flash-fried squid. Beans with soft boiled quail eggs and rabbit terrine with sour cherries were both winners. This place is all class. Do yourself a favour.

The restaurant has a beautiful setting but was very quiet on the evening we called - it was quite late - so we chose not to dine in. However, it does provide a limited take away service (mainly seafood), so we decided on fish and chips which were excellent. The restaurant manager took our order and was very friendly and helpful.
