Locale Restaurant and Bar Noosa
It was my wife’s birthday and I mentioned this on the booking but either the message was not conveyed to the restaurant or it was ignored. Sad really.
The waiter that waited our table was rude and abrupt without reason and given this is a straight forward restaurant on a tourist street I can’t see why this is acceptable. Anyway
Food was great. Waitress was quite rude and abrupt made me feel unintelligent with wine list and contradicted herself when she said there was no sweet wines then offered a moscato. Felt quite out of place and uncomfortable, was quite keen to leave by the end.
The service was genuine and prompt plus nice!!
Both had entree. Delicious.
I had barramundi and it was delicious and lots of
seafood. It was a good size main.
However my partner ordered the duck , and it was not as full meal. We did ask what sides would suit and told the broccolini and we often order potatoes and was told didn’t need it. When duck came out it looked like a entree portion was a little disappointed. We then realised we should have ordered potatoes.
But that service was lovely.
This clever restaurant covers a lot of bases. Our visit was for a 'fine dining' dinner on a Saturday evening and Locale fulfilled that brilliantly. The very Italian menu avoided any clichés with imaginative seasonal dishes beautifully prepared. I chose the 'specials', which seemed to have been especially chosen for me, for entre, main and dessert. My dining partner chose from the antipasti selection for entre and a pasta dish as main course.
Superb service in all respects made a memorable meal.
Locale is a fabulous restaurant with great service and exceptional food. We had a great night and a real experience.
A wonderful dining experience - definitely not your cheap and cheerful neighbourhood restaurant! Excellent service, amazing dishes - a special place to share with loved ones
The Barramundi dish was to die for. Exceptional flavour and textures.
Busy evening but the service was excellent. I would recommend it to any visitor to Noosa.
This place never disappoints. Second time here & we chose to eat in the bar area where there was a singer providing some great chilled out tunes. The food was incredible - italian done right. Everything is so fresh, the pizzas thin’& crispy with the perfect amount of topping, and service was outstanding. We will be booking in each time we come to Noosa. 10/10!
Our last evening in beautiful Noosa and we're so glad it was spent at Locale. The food and service was exceptional. We'll definitely be booking again on our next visit to Noosa.
Best restaurant in Noosa - sat at the bar with a friend and the bar guys looked after us making sure our glass was always full and the Italian food is so amazing and authentic (wood oven). I travel all the way from Brisbane just to have the Gnocchi lasagne. The service, wine selection and food is the same every time - Perfect! We will be back
Our favourite Noosa restaurant just gets better and better! The food, the wine list, the service all outstanding.
A class act. Very easy to recommend to friends.
Best restaurant in Noosa
Food was sadly very disappointing, as we were so looking forward to our dinner.
Service, atmosphere , The look of the restaurant and team members were all good.
Cleanliness of restaurant was poor, had to send my side plate back as it wasn't clean and cob webs near lights above.
Tried many of restaurants around while on holiday in Noosa and around this was one of the most impressive looking, however sadly this was the worsst, it's all about the food.
It was one of the noisiest dining experiences I have ever had. Impossible to hear each other speak across the table. Unfortunately this spoilt what would have been an enjoyable dinner.
We had an excellent meal last night, had scallops to start, crab linguine for main and absolutely delicious strawberry desert.
By far best restaurant in Noosa, would highly recommend
We are Noosa locals who volunteer for Noosa Tourism and must say this is the most underwhelming restaurant we have ever been to . Will never return or recommend to anyone
Wonderful food and great service, we had a most enjoyable evening.
Lovely evening with great service and super fresh, perfectly cooked dishes.
Such a beautiful, high quality restaurant!
The staff were very helpful with making slight adjustments to the meals to cater to our dietary requirements and they turned out so delicious!!
Also, the cocktails made on aquafaba rather than egg whites is an awesome touch!
The food was disappointing. One waitress came across as arrogant and quite unfriendly. This did not make our dining experience at all pleasant nor make us want to return or recommend to friends. We are Sunshine Coast locals.
Locale never disappoints. It's our favourite restaurant in Noosa. The service is always exceptional and there is always a surprise dish on the menu. A good varied want list.
A lovely ambience, great fresh Italian food, spectacular wine and cocktail list, staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Make sure you book as it always seems to be full, this restaurant is a must do whilst holidaying in Noosa. I would recommend the antipasti platter, followed by the duck ragu pasta. We were so full we could not find any room for dessert but we did have an affagatto - ice cream with coffee, frangelico and nuts. What a treat.
Always a reliable dining option. Great food and a vibrant atmosphere. Recommend the barramundi seafood main.
Our favourite Noosa restaurant, it’s always busy so make sure you book.
From the moment we entered this restaurant we knew we were in for a treat. The highly experienced waiting staff and sommelier all contributed to a sophisticated and highly polished yet relaxed dining experience. As for the food, each dish was spectacular, highlighting local fresh produce and fabulous seafood. If you get the chance to dine here then I recommend you give it a go, I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Stunning atmosphere with a modern twist in Italian cuisine. Amazing cocktails, service and quality.
Thanks for a great night
Perfect in every way
Possibly the best Italian I have enjoyed in a long time! Food was amazing and the staff were so welcoming and very very very kid friendly! Wine list out of this world! If in Noosa a must go!
All started well but then the mains took 40mins to come, it got very hot & noisy at the back of the restaurant where we where seated & then the main came with chilli having asked if it could definitely be without. Disappointing finish +++. Maître Di was forthcoming in embarrassment - apology.
Food was good quality but the main course
Was cold, wine was good, service excellent.
It was very noisy and hard to hear conversations.
The service is friendly, attentive and engaging. The food first class and a wonderful wine list.
Excellent and friendly service, great, large wine list and excellent food, whats not to like about this restaurant?
Best place on Hastings Street.
Cocktails, food, wine and service all great. Head and shoulders above all others I visited in Noosa.
Six Star Experience
Fantastic inventive modern Italian food with amazing wine list
The attending staff all very helpful and knowledgeable on food and wines
I am a repeat customer and can never fault this place
WAiter was rude and couldn’t wait for us to
Had a reservation for 8pm and were not seated until 8:30pm. The waitress dropped the drinks on us at the bar and she apologized and that’s ok. The round of drinks on the house.....I will cover the cost of getting our shoes cleaned. The restaurant advertises pizza in the menu on the front window. That said you cannot order pizza in the main dining room at night. This seemed crazy. When manager came over to talk He laughed at us and walked away. Avoid. Overpriced and arrogant
