Brother n law had booked this restaurant, unfortunately he had booked a week out. No problems, staff were more than obliging in finding us a table as long as we were finished before 8. Staff tremendous, food exquisite. Would definitely return. Took the ferry to the restaurant and taxied back. A great night.

Great spot with good service. As with most Aussie chefs take themselves a little too seriously and over complicate some dishes. Keep it simple and it's good. Avoid the "school prawns" it's fried tiny bait and inedible (should be a better description). Otherwise worth a visit if you are at Noosa. Solid cooking in a great setting on the river.... More

Dined here with family after a river cruise. It was nice to get a chefs tasting treat to start. The service was efficient although the staff seemed quite rushed. The menu had some great options and the steak was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere on the river was lovely. Obviously a popular place to dine and the meal quality testifies... More

Decades of patronage but we eventually tired of the pretentious attitude and seldom changing menu. This was a great family favourite restaurant. Am pleased to say there has been a massive improvement at this gorgeous restaurant. Aside from being waterfront on Noosa River with great views, a very sophisticated space, cocktail bar and adjoining childrens' park, a ferry stop which... More

The position of restaurant is superb. Right on the noosa river. Very elegant decore. Attentive waiters. Menu on the expensive side but could not fault food or service. Seafood grill was tasty but not huge. Only served with 4 tiny potato slices. No vegetables or extras. Need salad or vegies to be added. Wine list extensive but also highly priced.... More

From the ambience through to the meals this place was a delight. For the Wine lovers the list is quite extensive and caters for all types of wines from many countries. The service was great, the food was awesome especially the crab pasta. They even cater for the kids in a great way and there is a park next door.... More

We were staying on a campsite 20 mins walk away from here and went for a drink on our first night. It doesn't look like much from the outside (stuck in amongst some small local shops) but inside the bar there is a relaxed seating area with a beautiful view over the water for drinks with superbly attentive bar staff....

Ate here with friends on holiday from Germany. All of us were impressed by the food, service and view. The seafood was very fresh and well prepared. The wine list quite impressive but mark-ups on the high-side. I guess that is Noosa.
