Moderately enjoyable with the following observations:-

1) The octopus entree came out so quick, it may as well have been in a cocktail glass. Not necessarily a problem, except that the dish arrived together with the cocktail drinks we had ordered. It was then a first world problem as to whether we let the octopus go cold, or allow the cocktails to turn tepid.

This didn't seem to register as unusual in the boisterous surroundings, especially as the waiting staff seemed positively Olympian in a need for speed over attentiveness.

2) The Mooloolaba King Prawns! Who could resist such a fine sounding local delicacy?

Unfortunately, the King Prawns served were of thumb nail proportions. Did they run out of King Prawns? Or are Mooloolaba King Prawns representive of an unusual and diminutive mutation?

Despite the speed of service, the noise, and what at times felt like the impersonal rumpus of a stock exchange, the food was as flavoursome and boldly Italian as Mama with a rolling pin.

However, on a price/offering ratio, it would be imprecise to describe 'Locale' as fine dining, much less Tuscany by the sea.

This restaurant has the wow factor as soon as you walk in and it did not disappoint. We shared an entree among 4 then each main meal was cooked to perfection - lamb, barramundi, and their specialty veal. The cheese plates are amazing and way more than just cheese and crackers. Heaps of fruits nuts and wafer thin biscuits. Expensive but worth it for those special occasions.

We visit Noosa every year and Locale is another one of our fav restaurants we book well in advance and visit every year! The food always amazing, the service great and it offers a nice atmosphere! When we visited on our honeymoon 2 years ago they made a special effort with our dessert! We love seeing the resident lizard sitting on the window!
