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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’m so happy with my experience with this restaurant. I booked for an anniversary dinner but had to cancel due to my husband being unwell. The staff communicated promptly through emails and I was able to order all the food I wanted for pickup. They...were very friendly and helpful. The food was unbelievably delicious, even after a 10 minute drive! Each dish was full of flavour and cooked perfectly. Would highly recommend!More

Perfect for a special night out. Unique menu with so many great options - I was sorry we were going home couldn’t go back for a second evening. Lovely staff and service, beautiful location, couldn’t fault our meals or accompanying wines.

What a gem! Eating on the deck, shaded by huge umbrellas on a very warm winter’s day with great service, fantastic food and live music was just what we asked for our wedding anniversary. We will definitely visit again, many times, and have two further...visits planned later in the year.More

Quiet and intimate. Attention to detail - every staff member wished us well for our special event dinner. Food is well presented and flavours are refined. The texture of the gnocchi is the creamiest ever. Pescatarian and Vegetarian. Great wines list. Enjoyed all the selections...we made from entree, main and dessert menu.More

This is the best kept secret in the Hinterland [&, hopefully, it stays that way 😊]. Lunch for four and, once again, all happy campers. I judge a restaurant on my five set standards, food, drinks, service, setting and price. this restaurant scores top marks...in all areas I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, it’s a very brave and confident chef with no steak on the menu. Everything else must be fairly well perfect if there’s no “chunk of beef” available and here is where you get it! The drinks menu is a perfect companion to the food. Service from the young, friendly, keen to be here team is exceptional without being intrusive. The view from the deck is relaxing and glorious. It’s as though you’re sitting at the top of the trees with the world below The prices? Oh, my goodness I don’t know how they do it! I think the chef goes down beachside in the early morning, beats up a fisherman and steals his catch. Vegetables and salads must come from their own, obviously loved and cared for, garden. If only every eatery in Qld. took a pricing lesson from Kondalilla Falls Restaurant the dining world would be a lovelier place. Last, but certainly not least, Kondalilla Falls restaurant is open from 12pm to 8pm [Thurs.-Sun]! In my 30+ years of hospitality I have never seen this. I’m sure there must be other nosh joints doing it but a restaurant of this class and style? You can have lunch here at 3.30pm if you so desire [& I have]! Same exquisite menu and food. If only every eatery in Qld. took an opening hours lesson from Kondalilla Falls Restaurant the dining world would be a lovelier place. This IS the best all-round restaurant in the hinterland [according to my standards]. Not arguably………..IT IS! I can’t wait to get back and try the incredible sounding Seafood Charcuterie Board Kondalilla Falls Restaurant always calls me back in every way, inspires me to write and not too many places still do that to a jaded ol’, seen/been it all cynic like me, these days. 👌😊More

Everything about this experience was gorgeous but the food was mind blowing. From the rainforest location, to the superb service, to the delicious cocktails to the best meal we have had in a very ling time, the visit to this classy yet casual restaurant was...a treat to all the senses but especially the tastebuds. Every dish was plated beautifully and delivered a perfect balance of flavours and textures. The freshness of the food, the use of local and native ingredients, and the intensity of the flavours kept giving us WOW moments. And it's so healthy with only seafood and vegetarian offerings - but you won't miss meat at all. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of everything. We can't wait to come back ... and we will be bringing friends.More

The best spot in Montville to watch the sunset. If it's a Sunday, you'll catch some cool tunes too. Mooloolaba Garlic Prawns are a must - also the Snapper with macadamia butter.
