Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have now been 3 times, thinking at first maybe we just got a bad day but we have decided that all 3 visits have not been good. It is such a shame as we love the venue, the setting is beautiful, in the restaurant and...the bar area and we want to support local but the food has to be good too. Our first visit we did the 2 course lunch with wine and coffee and yes value for money if the food was good but the temperature schnapps was mediocre to say this least, the batter was anything but tempura and the fish was average, as for the white rice wrapped in wombok a waste of time, no flavour there either. Nest time had the pappardelle with duck and this was nice but luke warm, by the time I was half way through it was cold. I would have sent it back but it took so long to arrive & my partner was half way through hers so did not want to wait longer. Last week tried the bar menu and would not do that again, very average for a chef to present. Any person in the kitchen could have made up the San choy bau, chopped up cucumber, handful of mint, coriander,rice & the eggplant mixture with nuoc cham. This nuoc cham tasted exactly like sweet Chili sauce from a bottle nothing like nuoc cham should taste. I may try the restaurant one more time if/when the menu changes but not while this present menu is on, too limiting and have tried a number of dishes and the only one I would have again is the pappardelle. For a well known chef to put his name to the dishes on this menu should really try items from the menu himself and decide if they are worthy of putting his name to. I have spoken to a few people who have been here and they have thought the same but a lot of people do not like to voice their concerns but they do not go back to the restaurant either. On the occasions we have been the restaurant is nearly empty with staff wandering around everywhere, this venue should be buzzing every day with such a wonderful relaxing ambiance, such a shame about the food.More

We had dinner here and it was only ok. The mains tasted ok but lacked any presentation. Of the 4 different mains we had, only 1 had any colour representing a vegetable. Were we meant to order these separately? Great choice of beers here. Different...types but well flavoured; not too American more European, Asian or Australian types. We went back 2 days later and had the 2 course lunch special with different mains to the previous meal. What a difference! Each main was beautiful and nicely presented. I think this was the best value for money anywhere in Noosa.More

We had lunch here and had a lovely waitress Mia look after us and the highlight was the menu choices. I had the wagyu which was superb and was cooked by chef Russell and my wife had the Tempura snapper again cooked by chef Russell...which was also delicious as we both shared dishes.

Our family of 6 enjoyed the buffet breakfast during our recent stay at Peppers Resort. We were greeted by Mary at the entry and we were shown our table. Mary was so lovely and helpful to our family. There was a fantastic range of food...and drinks of available so there was something for everyone. We would definitely return.

Having read a recent review mentioning the Cape Grim beef dish I can only wonder why it’s still on the menu. We took friends there in late November having raved to them about this restaurant. The beef we had then was tough, dry and unpleasant...and the service patchy. Another friend complained of the same issues in a separate visit. Others must have complained so why is this nasty shisk kebab thing still on the menu?More

Had the "rump" for dinner. Came out with a metal skewer shoved through the thinnest piece of bbq steak from woolies I'd ever seen which was a bit weird for a famous chef. Incredibly over seasoned with a huge amount of salt and pepper. when...I was interrupted on the second mouthful and asked if it was ok I proceeded to ask what it actually was. turns out it wasn't rump at all it was part of the shoulder? Again pretty weird. I was told they were trying a new seasonal menu and it kind of felt like I was the guinea pig (or the guinea pig was on my plate with a skewer in it). Turns out they haven't changed the menu in 4 months(jan22) but maybe they've changed the cut of meat? Sorry but I'm not game enough to go back and check. I reckon Matt Golinski should taste this crap before he puts his name on the stuff his head chef is creating.More

I only write reviews on restaurants that I literally obsess with. This restaurant was absolutely Devine! The waitresses were extremely helpful and super kind, they had impeccable manners and very well presented. Our cocktails were absolutely delicious and the food.. OH MY GOD The gnocchi...LITERALLY melted in your mouth and it was the yummiest gnocchi I have ever had hands down. My partner and friends partner had the wagyu and they licked the plate clean. We then ordered the amaretto cake and the chocolate custard and I was about to order seconds, the flavour was immaculate! The most delicious dinner ever, highly highly HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.More

We attended the restaurant for breakfast and order food and drinks all within the one order. Drinks and starters came at a reasonable time but the mains had not been put through and waiters had forgotten about us. We even had add extra items to...our mains but still forgotten until we had to physically get up and ask where our food was after waiting 40 minutes. The food was good but it could have been great if not tainted with bad service that had ruined the experience.More

We have eaten at this restaurant over the years and always rated the food as delicious and high standard. On our recent stay we went to Sangria/paella Sunday which served up delicious food and great tasting sangria. In house dining was delicious and good value....Dinner on the other hand at the restaurant was very underwhelming. My daughters dinner was brought out 10-15 mins before the rest of the table. The sausages looked like they had been reheated from breakfast, the ricotta gnocchi was crumbly and tasteless and was nothing like gnocchi and I’ve had better steak at my local Mexican restaurant. Service staff are always polite and friendly.More
