“Perfectly cooked, friendly service”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Last night, unfortunately, was a very hot night and the fans and air-conditioning had a losing battle when the windows and doors were open trying to catch a cool breeze. It was quite uncomfortable, sweltering away and disappointing that they haven't worked out how to properly air condition the restaurant. Nevertheless, the food was superb and the attentive service excellent, exemplified when a prawn entree dish was brought out for my wife unexpectedly sprinkled with nuts (not shown in the menu description). As she is allergic to nuts we signalled and instantly the plate was replaced with profuse apologies, and a further entree dish offered. We declined saying we would have no room for the mains, but then they brought out a tomato salad side as an extra anyway. The barramundi and grain fed sirloin for mains was cooked superbly & although we declined desert they brought out - gratis - a strawberry sorbet for us to finish the night on.

Thanks Rick for a great review. It does get warm over summer - so we have recently iunstalled some new fans in addition to the air conditioning. Pleased to hear that you enjoyed your berardo's experience, and look forward to seeing you again soon and hopefully you will have room to try one of our desserts!

“Epitome of "Noosa Style"”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We escaped the kids and had a romantic night out at Berardos.
It was just perfect. The guy behind the bar was brilliant, stef i think they called him. It think it refects a lot on a venue when they have great staff and this place had plenty of them. Passionate wait staff, a contemporary yet localised menu in a stunning setting. The chef came out at the end of the night and looked very proud which added to the ambience.
We will return here for sure.

“Very nice food, outstanding service; great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Whenever we come to Noosa we always make a reservation at Berardo's. Their 'locals' ' menu is a treat: 3 courses and a glass of wine for $39. The food is delicious, the service is the best I've come across for ages and, complemented by the crisp linen tablecloths and napkins, comfortable chairs, subdued lighting and gentle ambiance, the whole package is a winner. I agree with a previous reviewer.. it's refreshing to have a reason to dress up, even just a little.

“Berado's is back”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

For short while we would come to Noosa and avoid this place. Not any more. We have had several very good meals in the delightful mainly white dining room. Beautiful ambience and very comfortable up market space. Wait staff has improved out of sight and the food quality and choice with it. Gerard is a hit.
Food: entree prawns and tuna tartare ,light tasty , great.
Main: cape grim steak was medium rare , great , but the duck was tough and chewy.
Dessert: pineapple tarte tatin,terrific. They even opened a bottle of "noble one" not normally sold by the glass, for us.
3 wait staff managed our meal perfectly, with charm , space and knowledge.
Berado's is definitely back on our list of "go to" places in Noosa again.

“Overrated”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Christmas Eve and apparently the restaurant was short staffed because they weren't expecting so many patrons. I had the Crab Risotto which was pretty ordinary, however somewhat lacking in Crab. My sister had a terrible piece of chewy Rib Fillet full of sinew and fat accompanied by a "salad" that a child must have put together. She said it was awful and it was removed from the bill. Every other day I wandered past this restaurant it was packed to the roof with patrons so there must be something good about it. The setting is lovely, and the staff were good; maybe the chef was having an off night, or maybe he was off for the night!
