Great food. Great service. Great vibe. Well kept and clean. I really enjoyed dining here. I had the slow roasted lamb shoulder which I’d recommend. Be sure to get some of their breads for entrees.

Came for dinner on a busy Tuesday evening. And everything was excellent. From the service to the food. We had a selection of the small starters and for mains we had the gnocchi (to die for) and the Osso Bucco risotto. Equally as good. With...a bottle of Chianti we could have been in Florence. Highly recommended.More

Great service, over priced pretentious food that wasn’t that nice. I’m glad I wasn’t paying. Kingfish for entree was awful. The pasta main was nice, but for the $50 price tag, I expected more. Wait staff we above average, can’t complement them enough.

Had a lovely dinner recently, food was great, but we were left at the bar for 45 min... free first drinks were good but could have been 5/5!!! Just saying...

We visited Locale for the first time last night and had an absolutely perfect experience - such a magical start to our stay in Noosa. To begin with, the space and decor is just lovely, with a low-lit, romantic vibe - still casual, but sophisticated...and classy. We ordered some delicious cocktails, followed by a large assortment of smaller dishes - zucchini flowers, oysters, scallops, wagyu carpaccio, lamb ribs, burrata - and then a crab tagliatelle to share, capped off with a dark chocolate mouse. We were so glad we did things this way, allowing the opportunity to taste as many dishes as possible... every single dish was delicious! Faultless! Our Sicilian waiter was a delight, providing friendly and knowledgable service at every turn. We can't speak highly enough of this wonderful restaurant - we can't wait to return one day.More

We walked along Hastings Street and beach front to find a place to eat and walked into Locale and was able to get a table. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the food was fantastic, as were their cocktails. We will definitely go back, it...is not pretentious and it is about good food and good atmosphere. Happy to find a restaurant to go back to when we want to splurge on good food!More

Awesome service, fabulous lunch, great atmosphere. Went as a family, they were more than happy to go beyond to make our visit memorable. Will be back again.

When you just want a nice table but get seated in the entry area under the brightest light despite booking ahead of time. The person seating you tells you they get paid $40K more at Locale than their last airline role in general conversation why...is that relevant, the food was nice but on the higher $$$ as is the beverage list. It was an okay dining experience.More
