We had an amazing experience at Backlane. The establishment has such an inviting and relaxed atmosphere and the service was quick. The waiters were so friendly - they went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful night. The cocktail menu is also incredible...and each one we tried looked and tasted absolutely delicious (make sure you visit during happy hour!!). I will definitely return again and recommend Backlane to anyone staying at Mooloolaba.More

Amazing food, drink and service. We had a fantastic 6 course meal with wine on a Wednesday night. Exceptional value with matching service from the attentive and friendly staff. Highly recommend

In my opinion you dine out to enjoy good food and appreciate good service. This venue was outstanding both areas. Wednesday night has a special 6 course menu and each dish was excellent. Timmy from Amsterdam was assigned to serve our table and we found...him to be both personable and a great waiter. A young lady was also delightful but unfortunately I didn’t get her name. This restaurant is lucky to have such employees. It was a busy night but the great food kept coming. A great find for us and a memorable night indeed! Thank you.More

This little bar down the back of Mooloolaba is a gem. Great wines and cocktails in a chic setting are a draw card in themselves, but the food is divine too. My husband and I went for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience. We...shared several dishes and were blown away by the tastes. The salt and pepper calamari was cooked to perfection, crumbed olives stuffed with goats cheese amazing too, followed by lamb kofta and Asian slaw, washed down with a soft Spanish Tempranillo. Plenty to eat at a good price too. Attentive wait staff made it a very pleasant evening. Recommended.More

What a great atmosphere, team and OMG the cocktails. We will be here again on the next trip to Mooloolaba. Highly recommend supporting this bar for their food and drinks.

Wow wow wow! Combined 101st birthday gathering shifted to Backlane as another high profile local restaurant/bar were going to ignore COVID-19 restrictions. Best decision ever. The staff are friendly. The French Martini’s are delicious and the wine flowed and flowed. I loved the deep fried...olives, the calamari was cooked perfectly and my fish taco was excellent. I wished I lived here! Please support this business it is great.More
