The best pizzas I have ever had. Thin crust and top quality toppings. Service was friendly and fantastic as well.

Quality of the pizza was very good indeed. The Vegetarian selection was quite large and the Service was very friendly and we were there on a Wednesday night. They had an acoustic guitarist playing on the evening and he was very good as well. Good enough that we bought one of his CDs at the cash register on the way out. Good ambience

PROs: Our waitress was really lovely, the wine was nice (and reasonable!) and the restaurant was beautifully decorated. The toppings were very nice, I had the pork & fennel sausage.

CONS: The pizza itself! The dough was not good at all - it had been overcooked so t was extremely chewy in comparison to the usual fluffiness of sourdough. Everyone’s pizzas were the same colour so it wasn’t just ours that were overdone. Such a shame as on Instagram the crust is much lighter and more like what I’d expect from a good sourdough joint! It was also really, really cold where we were sitting as we were by the old style windows that don’t seal.

The price we paid was fine but I’ve paid 30-40% less in other venues and had way better pizza.

High tables were not comfortable- definitely not for four people . Not enough room to even have our food and drinks at the same time 😞

Didn’t think the pizza was as good as the last time visited. The sides are priced high.

Food has gone downhill since our last visit in September 2018. The pizzas were honestly only a small step above dominos. The pizzas were laden with cheese which made them extra greasy and the quality of ingredients is not representative of the cost.

We dined at El Capitano on Friday night - family of 4- the service was excellent- pizzas delicious and the staff were all happy and smiling - great to see. We would highly recommend dining here or getting a takeaway pizza

Great night out of wonderful food, extensive beer list and the cocktails were yummy! Very comfortable atmosphere with attentive service. We could only try 3 pizzas but they were all amazing...zucchini, prawn and lamb. And sour dough crusts were scrummy. No-one was disappointed. The rocket and pear salad balanced the meal nicely. Would recommend this place as a must when visiting Noosa.

Great fun. Friendly attentive staff. A little on the expensive side for a quick in and out family meal. An early happy hour for young families might be an idea.

The overall experience was wood however we had to wait for our main 45 min because “takeaway” orders had priority. Not fair on us as we had to rush because another booking was coming behind us

Great gluten free pizza, salad, prawns and delicious cocktails!
Our drinks order was forgotten but the waitress did apologise and they were great when they arrived.
It was a shame the band was so loud as were couldn’t have a conversation at our table without yelling as we had older guests with us and they found it difficult to hear.
But first and foremost greaaaaat pizza!
