    Chose the wrong time as we had all the families with very noisy children. Loved everything else and will definitely return at a later time.

    Well worth a night at El Capitanos- excellent food and service. No zero alcohol beer however and not permitted to byo when asked. Got the impression it was very much a place to ‘be seen’ - so if that’s your thing - here is another place to add 😁

    Amazing pizza!!! 👌🏼👌🏼 Service was a little slow, no doubt due to staff shortages. But you get that everywhere at the moment! But all very friendly and apologetic with some drinks on the house. Would recommend and go back for sure 🙌🏼

    We dined here on a recent trip to Noosa and enjoyed fabulous pizza and amazing cocktails. The atmosphere was great and the staff welcoming and friendly. I knocked off a star for service as we were forgotten about a couple of times. It was extremely busy though and we weren’t in a hurry.

    We were impressed by the interesting toppings on the pizzas and the wide variety of drinks on offer. We were comfortable at our big wooden table and the space between our party and other diners. The service was great - friendly, prompt and attentive. We were so taken by the chilli oil on the table, we would LOVE the recipe! A really fun night in great atmosphere.

    Food was good, service not that good. Get served a drink, then 5min later they say we have 5min to drink up.. why not say “don’t think there’ll be enough time to order a drink” instead of making us chug a cocktail??

    El Capitano is my Hastings St dinner-time personal favourite. The ambiance is beautiful; a warm, comforting, and romantic experience. The food is authentic, and the wine and cocktails do not disappoint. I recommend the San Daniele Proscuitto, the Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder, and the Wild Mushroom pizzas. The staff are all friendly and hard-working. The bar staff I have noticed in particular are professional and efficient at their art; it's fun observing them as they go through the process of making cocktails and pouring drinks. They never look bored or tired, even though I bet they are! 10/10, would highly recommend making yourselves a reservation.

    Limited dining time, they took 10 minutes to even seat us which ate into the valuable 1.5hr dining time. Food didn’t come until 20 minutes before we were to leave, so felt quite rushed. As a coeliac, the Gluten free pizza was the worst i’ve tasted. Cocktails were full of ice, there was like 3 sips of liquid.

    We were so disappointed with our evening. The photos and website gave an expectation that wasn’t experienced on the night in ambiance or food. This is a 2 star restaurant, cramped, noisy and below par. We left early and had drinks & desert further down Hastings Street.
