Reserve Restaurant Cellar is the premier fine dining experience on the Sunshine Coast. Situated only 7 km from Maleny in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Reserve is housed in a landmark colonial Queenslander with sweeping views of the Coast and Hinterland. Reserve offers a warm and intimate dining experience with polished timber floors, high backed leather chairs, crisp linen and crystal glassware. Like the spectacular views, its reputation since opening in 2007, now stretches far beyond Maleny. Testimonies to the combined talents of Chef Kieran Reekie and Sommelier Steve Heffernan include: • one star in the Courier Mail Food and Dining Guide in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011• a listing in the prestigious Gourmet Traveller Australian Restaurant Guide Top 400 Restaurants in 2009, 2010 and 2011,. • one goblet in the Gourmet Traveller Wine Wine List of the Year Awards in 2008, 2009, 2010• Restaurant and Caterers Association – Best Contemporary Restaurant, 2009; Best Fine Dining Restaurant, 2010.Chef Kieran combines modern cooking with traditional methods and is passionate about taste and keeping flavours simple, so as not to confuse the palate. With an eye for detail and a love of beautiful ingredients, the resulting dishes are always superb. The menu is available online and rings in seasonal changes. Firm favourites include an entrée of Twice Baked Moreton Bay Bug and White Truffle Oil Soufflé with Vinegar Spinach and Salmon Caviar while mains include Slow Braised Shoulder of Junee Lamb with Roasted Pumpkin, Onion Relish and Seeded Mustard Crust and desserts on offer include a divine Vanilla Pannacotta with Cinnamon Beignets, Caramel Sauce. A degustation menu complete with wines for each tasting is a popular choice.Reserve Restaurant Cellar is not only innovative in the kitchen, but in the wine cellar as well. The cellar is an ever growing, and at times all consuming, foundation for Reserve. Currently holding 450 varieties, each wine is carefully chosen to create a list that appeals to all tastes and budgets and is supported by Steve, a professional sommelier who adores “talking wine” and assisting with wine selection. Reserve features two levels of dining: the ground floor, which seats a maximum of 50 people, and the Cellar, which seats up to 25 people, for a more intimate unique dining experience. Both spaces at Reserve are available for functions and events, with optional menu and beverage packages. Locals and visitors alike are able to enjoy personalised, professional service that begins from the moment they are greeted at the door. Reserve’s commitment to delivering the perfect dining experience extends to offering a drop off service to Range customers in their luxury car.
