When we first entered as the first diners for the evening the music was quiet loud. We asked the waitress for a quieter table and were seated in a small alcove area & the DJ turned down the speaker in this area 👍👍 . We were promptly served drinks by a lovely waitress & we ordered oysters kilpatrick for entree. They were very tasty. We ordered the slow cooked lamb for main - share meal for two. The lamb was melt in the mouth and came with plenty of roast potatoes & broccoli. There was enough for 3 people! Sadly we couldn’t fit in any deserts. Highly recommend for food, service and value.

Really enjoyed our time with you, even though I have never seen such tiny oysters! Thought you could have been a bit more generous with the Dukka on the Hommus. Live music was really enjoyable.
Was great to be out in the real world again, & look forward to another afternoon with you soon. Cheers Annie

Had a wonderful dinner with my wife on vacation from Adelaide.
The staff were friendly and informative on the chef’s recommendations.
We went with the lamb shoulder for 2.
It was Devine.
Would highly recommend.

Slow service at bar, had to wait a long time standing. Basic cocktails had to be made using a recipe creating slower service, cocktails served without garnished and not presentable for the price you are paying.

staff were helpful, very pleasant
the food unfortunately was hit and miss- one piece of my fish was inedible but the other was delicious. Would be really nice though if cafes could offer healthier options
Plate full of chips- no salad- would be good to add to menu salad instead of chips with fish

Friends referred us to Cafe Le Monde, specifically to the lamb shoulder/bottle of wine deal. We were glad they did. The food was delicious and the helpings generous. We also enjoyed the venue's laid back but lively ambience which allowed us to watch Hasting Street's passing parade on a Friday night while we dined. Service was prompt and attentive.

I have heard that this is a popular place to eat yet we had to ask four times for water then when we got up to get our own all the jugs were empty. Also the yellow curry all the veggies over cooked and the mackerel was tough and over done. Chips with the burger were soggy.

This was our second time dining at Cafe Le Monde. The food has been excellent on both occasions, really lovely flavours. It was a Sunday evening so the restaurant was quieter than our previous visit but still very nice.

Great shared platter for entree, and my main (prawn linguini) was delicious. Wife had the prawn bucket which she said was divine. Service was fast, good and friendly. The only drawback is it is priced fairly high, but I guess it is Noosa, and prices are the same in all the restaurants.
