    We found kondalilla restaurant a fantastic and relaxing space to enjoy a nice lunch on a Sunday afternoon, complete with live music by a very talented young lady. It has a beautiful inside air conditioned area for summer or a fireplace for cooler months or you can sit on the large outdoor deck to enjoy nature. The food was amazing and ample sized helpings. We would be happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food in beautiful surroundings.

    Not our first visit, menu is good and dishes are very well presented, although the fish n chips option looked plain in comparison to other menu choices. i.e. Crusted Barramundi. Service faultless, as usual. Will go back again.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more vegetarian dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable but it was let down by the choice of beers, not everyone likes fruity beer.

    A pre-Christmas family dinner.Standouts were, as always, the barramundi, but the side of deep-fried sweet potatoes left the fish behind. Light, crisp, flavoursome and not even a little greasy. Would liove to know how the cook did it! Deep fried, we were told. Didn't seem like that! Way better. Staff lovely and knowledgable as always.

    Our third visit to this delightful restaurant. This time we brought a guest from Sydney, a vegetarian most of the time but does eat fish occasionally. He stuck to the vegetarian menu throughout. I chose the octopus as an entree and it was delicious - perfectly cooked. Our guest loved the tofu main. In all, we enjoyed both the visual and taste experience of each dish on the Christmas menu. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table - outside but undercover in case the threatened rain began. Service throughout was discreet and excellent. Will definitely visit again.

    We had a wonderful dining experience with friends. Each of us loved our meals (crab cakes, calamari, vegan burger and Jackfruit arancini), and the calamari was declared the tastiest calamari to be had on the Sunshine Coast! The portions are a perfect size and filling. All meals are perfectly presented. The atmosphere is relaxing, quiet and the surrounds of trees makes it feel as if we were dining in the tree tops. We highly recommend dining at this wonderful seafood and vegan venue.

    We went to Kondalilla Restaurant to celebrate a wedding anniversary. It was our first time there but it did not disappoint. As it was a Sunday evening it was fairly quiet but we had soft music in the background as well as the sounds of the forest just at sunset. Was quite lovely sitting outside and listening to it all. Our food was delicious and beautifully presented with a good helping size. Service could not be faulted. Was a really lovely evening and we will definitely be back! Thank you :)

    This was our second visit to the Kondalilla Restaurant, the first being for lunch on a Sunday with live music from 1pm. This time we visited for dinner and opted for the three course set menu. Each course was a work of art, it almost seemed a shame to spoil it. Empty plates testified to the wonderful flavours of each course. Service was wonderful, with the staff we met being polite and welcoming. Our meal and drinks order was taken with enough time to ponder our choices but without having to wait an age. As the sun set it did become a little chilly on the deck, but blankets were cheerfully offered to keep us warm. Insect repellant was also provided although there were surprisingly few around. It was my birthday, so the final course - a wonderful chocolate lava cake - came with a burning candle in my dessert. A lovely touch. Our charming waitress was very happy to take photos of us as each course arrived. She took excellent photographs using my husband's phone. We will definitely eat here again and will bring our Christmas visitor for a meal in this wonderful restaurant.

    We arrived to a warm welcome and were escorted to an idyllic table with amazing views over the forest below. The hostess was polite , bubbly and knowledgeable about the menu . The food from start to finsh was absolutely delicious, the imaginative use of local fressh and in season ingredients made the experience very unique and enjoyable. I will definitely be back again eager to try something elsefrom the menu . Highly recommended
