“awesome food, will come back for that squid ink pasta again”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

i celebrated my 31st birthday with my husband and our 2 yr old and had awesome 3 course meal. we had trio of dips, lamb tenderloin, squid ink seafood pasta, my son had the kid's fish and chips (grilled barra) and chocolate fondant. got our money's worth. even my husband who doesn't want to get ripped off when it comes to food was impressed. he said, it's the type of food u would come back to in a restaurant because u know u can't cook it at home. we have a pretty average lifestyle and only go out during special occasions like my birthday but will definitely go back there again. the crew are nice and friendly too. it was a special night and we came home with smiles on our faces and a very full tummy.

“The best meal we have ever eaten”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Honestly when an owner of a restaurant tells you we have really good food you know they are trying to get you to eat there. But she should have said we have the best food in Qld!! Seriously we were blow away not only by good staff and service but the chef and quality of the food flavours and complete bliss in eating made us feel like we were in the best restaurant in Melbourne or Sydney. The big surprise was the flavours of each bite. You can usually find something that's a little low par for flavour but the beef medium rare steak with bone marrow and field mushrooms was so Devine that I couldn't speak the whole meal. The seafood fettuccine made on site with squid ink had such chunky pieces of seafood that it's looks and tasted amazingly fresh. The lamb was exquisite and the confit chicken was perfection. Of course if we could take home our entree with the duck liver pate we would by a tonne. Melted in your mouth and we felt this was the best all of us had tasted!! The deserts were all Devine and special mention goes out to the goats cheese cheesecake light and fluffy and perfect finish to very full and satisfied customers. We couldn't be more surprised and delighted at the fabulous new restaurant jellyfish on the river was magnificent and we will make it a regular stop next time we are in town. Wish is was in our neck of the woods

“Beautiful noosa experience”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

A group of friends and i recently dined at Jellyfish and had the most awesome time! The food was outstanding (the best fish i have honestly ever had). Everyone was super friendly from the beautiful owner to the chefs and waitresses. Beautiful food, scenery and overall experience! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a true Noosa dining experience!

“compliments to the chef but service from Gina...”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Four of us ate here late December and we were seated for 6.30 with only one quarter of the restaurant filled. While happy not to be rushed, we would not have known about the 'specials' unless we had not overheard another waiter telling other patrons of them. When we asked Gina she said she would send him over; this didn't happen and when we drew her attention to the fact she hastily muttered something like 'it is only fish cakes'! She is the co-owner and the chef is her partner! That said our meals ordered with entrees were excellent and presentation was tops. We were asked did we want desserts and declined and instead of suggesting she bring the check we had to ask and wait and wait for it. Service did not match the standard of the food. Being pedantic, we felt the dress code of our waitress could be improved to match the level they are wishing to pitch their restaurant and not dress as if you were at a coffee shop.
