    There are a lot of restaurants along Hastings Street. In orders to stand out a restaurant needs to offer something exceptional. This one does not. Children ordered cheeseburgers with fries. Fryer needs a clean. Meze platter was underwhelming- mostly bread and pickled cauliflower. Dips and cheese were good but in such small quantities. Crab was a highlight but was one dish out of four. Place was not full but maître seemed confused, however our server was lovely. Place is loud, hot and chaotic if you're under 25 you will probably love it otherwise probably walk on by.

    Lovely spot. Service was pleasant but slow. Food was unfortunately very average and over-priced. We ordered the Mezze plate and Seafood platter which were both scant and not fresh. Kids meals were also very average. Overall wouldn’t go back based on the quality of the food.

    The 12 hour cooked, shoulder of lamb was awesome. It should be on everyone's must try list in Noosa, vegetarians excepted of course. Service was good even when busy. We expected it to be a bit hot and humid but enough breeze gets into the venue for that not to happen.

    We ordered the entrees which were a little bland in flavour. Dissapointed in the portion size of vegetables in the curry dish but the flavor was beautiful. Have dined here before and was great so maybe it was just an off night.

    We own a restaurant in Melbourne. We serve lamb shoulder. We have been coming to Noosa annually for 20 years. We have had numerous lamb shoulders along the Hastings Street precinct. Without doubt, your lamb shoulder as well as the duck fat roasted potatoes is the best on the strip, by far, and in our view represents the best value for money on the strip too. We look forward to having this again next year, compliments all round.

    I just don’t get why… ‘here’s your table, go order over there, the water is over there( we had to fill up our own jug and get glasses - one of them has a lipstick stain on it ) here’s your food. Bye, thanks. It’s a self serve affaire ! Food was nice. Staff friendly but please - When you go out - it’s because you don’t want to have to do it yourself !!
