Casual dining at great prices and excellent value for money. Have eaten here many times and have always been pleased with quality and service. Sitting on the verandah having dinner - what a life. Watch for opening times as limited to Fridays + weekends (but open more during school holidays)

I thought this was going to be bad when you order a meal and 2 min later, it arrives. Absolutely terrible. Chips like cardboard, Chicken and fish had no taste so prob old. Never again!

We booked in for dinner with a group of 13 friends including children for 730pm. Grand final Nrl night. We had our dinner, then at 825pm (before the end of game) the children went to go back on the jumping pillow only to be very disappointed it was deflated. Hubby went up to a staff member who was very arrogant... More

Good value meals, quick service & great relaxed atmosphere. Cover giant jumping pillow keeps younger kids entertain & there is also a games room.

We came for lunch with a group of 11, 4 adults & 7 kids aged 4 to 12. The seafood & salad - lemon pepper calamari, fish & chips & pumpkin feta beetroot salad looked good & tasted same. The pizza was incredibly disappointing. Small in size, made from what appears to be frozen bases, canned pineapple, cheap ham. For... More

Went here on a fairly busy January Saturday night, couldn't find a restaurant phone number to book a table and the Noosa North Shore Retreat, whose number is listed as the contact, never answered their phone. Went in anyways and it was half full and lots of tables had reserved signs on them but we managed to get a table... More

Poor hospitality being shown by the staff at bar, no greeting, no smile. Did not look like they enjoyed serving customers. Wanted their popular cider, was responded with: 'None in the fridge'. Lemon lime bitters was made way too sweet. At the restaurant, the waitress preferred to give all her attention to one particular table which was next to us,... More

Restaurant was 50% full. Waited in lines for 15mins to order food and drinks. Was told food would be 30mins. Waited 2hrs, asked how long, they had forgotten our order even though our docket was next. Unacceptable and a waste of time. Went home hungry and annoyed.
