Our second time back to Locale and once again, did not disappoint. Would recommend for any special occasion. One of our favourites in Noosa, by far!

Amazing food. Excellent service! We had the degustation with matching wines and each morsel of food was complimented perfectly by the matched wine.

Fantastic service and an all round lovely experience celebrating our belated anniversary.

Service was excellent. Food was well presented. My steak was a little over cooked for my request. Flavours of variety of ingredients in the dishes were enhancing of one another. Small serves. We thought the dishes were over priced. Overall a lovely experience..

Love the idea that they grow their own veggies BUT both the gnocchi and risotto were much too salty. 🤨

Food was nice but nothing special noting the price. Service average. Sat near a noisy table which detracted from a special occasion.

Easily Noosa’s best restaurant now. The crab risotto is one of my favourite dishes of 2020 and we will be sure to keep coming back for more!

Amazing food
Rude service. From the moment we sat down the girl serving was making rude comments about past patrons etc trying to be funny we laughed it off until she turned rude, gossipy with colleagues and made us count down till we could walk out.

Again the food is lovely but the service was awful.

Arranged for an anniversary dinner in a courtyard table. Table was available all evening and vacant. We were seated inside and the noise level was very high so difficulties experienced in communicating to partner.
Food was excellent, service acceptable.

We had the Zuchini blossom flowers and potato gnocchi for our entrees and the pork for our main, everything was truly amazing. We finished it off with the pannacotta, which was beautiful and light.

Definitely the best place we ate at in Noosa.

Can’t wait to go back next time :)

Very easy to book but at least 3 days in advance. Service for food and wine very good. Great selection of wines especially Italian. Pasta seafood very good other main meals nicely cooked but could have been a little more inventive. First course all seafood very fresh. Love the restaurant.

Always lovely looking restaurant but the staff always seem disinterested. We’ve been here so many times over the years, and it’s always the same. Probably won’t bother next tine we’re here.

The food was quite bland and very overpriced for the quality of the food. The service was slow, mistakes were made in our order. The location was nice and convenient, however, the music was very loud considering it was a Sunday afternoon.
