Been several times since 1st opened in a back street of Mooloolaba and still excellent. Service is efficient and friendly. Food is exciting with plenty of flavours to surprise. Corner position with view of Mooloolaba Beach just enhances the experience. Would suggest the degustation options as that way you get plenty of variety and will be very satisfied. The Smokin...

We were given a voucher for Christmas to the Spice Bar, at first I wasn't sure if there would be enough options for me after I looked at the menu. However as we had a voucher it was lets go and see, well I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of options for a person with shellfish allergies. First my partner had... More

We had a large group booking and it was nice. We had the set menu which is always good. Super tasty food though not much of it. Friendly service. Quite expensive but probably worth it

Yes, it is pricey - but you get exactly what you pay for at the Spice Bar: a warm welcome, impeccable table presentation; excellent service and incredible food. A family group of five - we were able to get a last minute booking providing we were out within 1 1/2 hours. We chose this because we wanted to dine here.... More

This is such a wonderful place on the Sunshine Coast. The food is consistently good and the service is outstanding. Menu or degustation, it shines. Have recommended often and always had good reports.

Had an amazing dinner on Saturday night we ordered the 10 course degustation, every single dish was perfect! Still dreaming of the beetle leaf prawn, cuttlefish kimchi and beef tartar... Just writing this makes me want to eat it all again right now. The service was fast even though the restaurant was full and the staff were very friendly. A... More

I was here last weekend with friends and this was our first time at this restaurant. It's situated up a short flight of stairs in a two storey building on the main corner of Mooloolaba beach with a lovely view of the sea if you are lucky to get a table with a view as we were. Every table was... More
