“great location, great food”

nice dinner, good menu, not a wide range but still something for everyone. Service good. Went back next day for takeaway coffee which was cheaper and better than Aromas :-)

“Terrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Waited 40 mins for 2x meals at lunchtime. Food was bland, uninspiring and presented poorly. The restaurant looks good but that's about it. AVOID.

“Great view shame about the service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Berardo's is a big name in Hastings Street Noosa. Given that we thought it would be perfect for a cup of coffee, muffin and spending some time admiring the view to the beach. First impressions were very ordinary with the waitress in an absolutely filthy white t shirt asking to wait to one side. We waited and waited and then she pointed to a table we could sit at. Most tables were empty but they were preparing for lunch.
Two choices for a cake were the muffins. They came reasonably promptly but were just dumped on the table rather than to us individually. We waited for the coffee but gave up and started eating our muffins. I must say we could not fault the muffins. Finally the coffee came and it was great. Again it was just dumped on the table.
So great views but dreadful service all round really. The bistro itself also looks a bit tired and in need of some work to have it live up to its prices and location.
I am sure there are better places for a coffee in Hastings Street.

Thanks for your review Lissie. Whilst our high level of customer service is normally a stand out feature for customers at the bistro, we are sorry that on this occasion you did not find it up to standard. We have discussed this with management and staff. Thank you for your great feedback about the coffee and muffins, they are certainly a winner with the crowd and we have passed this on to the barista and kitchen team. Hope to see you next time you are in Noosa.

“mixed feelings”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

The service was excellent, and by the end of the apetisers all 4 adults were raving about the food. The kids were not so happy - the smallest kids meal I have ever seen especially the chicken. Sadly the main courses, all four of them, were very poor. The Mackerel was over cooked and the chorizo undercooked. The Linguini was completely tasteless ( see earlier review below) and I have had better pasta from a tin. The salad platter looked fabulous but the mackerel on it was so dry you could not eat it. Th scallops were OK although the gnocchi was truly excellent.

“Amazing location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Breakfast at Berardo's is a real treat. If you get there early when it opens there is usually a table available right at the front looking out onto the beach. The menu while not extensive ticks all the boxes for being interesting while offering something for everyone. Most of all the coffee is great. Service is prompt and friendly. We really enjoy going to this bistro and make it a must visit every time we're in Noosa.
You are able to book the entire bistro for special events, so if you have a wedding or special birthday coming up, this is a great spot to celebrate.
