Very enjoyable meal. The Grarlic Prawns were large and delicious. The Porchetta was also delicious.

Looks nice. Food very average for the price.
Service is bad. Lucky they were not busy. As now we know why. You go once & never return.

Great food with attentive service. Only issue was there was no down time between entrees and mains. Felt a little hurried. But menu and wine lists are good and the 5 of us enjoyed every mouthful.

We've been going to Rococo for years. Standard is always good - quality is very consistent. Staff do an amazing job. Rococo's is often over looked, with preference to Bistro C or Locale (both are great) - but locals and long time visitors know how good Rococo's is. Keep up the good work!

Unfortunately on this occasion our experience at Rococco was unpleasant. Our food order came out at 2 seperate times 30 minutes apart from each other so we couldn’t eat together and the later meals were incorrect which meant that we waited about an hour and a half after ordering to eat. Drinks took at least 30minutes to arrive after ordering and we even had to go and order them at the bar. There was only 1 person behind the bar and this was on the 2nd of January! Peak season! Really really poor considering the expense, the owner can really afford to put more staff on to make the experience more pleasurable. It was the 4th time we had been there between Christmas night and the 2nd of jan and we were embarrassed on this occasion to have brought people with us.

On a normal night it is great, however we went for Christmas dinner and was in a Marquee with no festive ambiance. It was promoted as being a great Christmas dinner, however I wouldn’t recommend it. The waitres was excellent

We have dined at Rococo every holiday for 20 years. This time, we were very disappointed. Firstly, the lovely musician they had for years that played loads of different instruments and lovely soft dinner music has gone, to be replaced by a very mediocre male singer who sang and played so loudly that we couldn't speak at our table, or recognize the songs he blared out. Secondly, they have changed the recipe on one of their signature dishes which we have every visit, the veal with butternut pumpkin ravioli, sage burnt butter sauce and jus. This time, three very small medallions of veal were served on a bed of tasteless gnocchi and jus, for $39. It was a substandard dish, and very poorly presetned - a real pity. The current chef should go back to the old chef's recipe book, as this was a classic dish. My husband had another signature dish, pork loin, which was brilliant. As we usually stay in Noosa for two weeks at least, we generally dine at Rococo two - three time each visit, but I would think twice about it now and would not go at all if the music is going to be that bad and disruptive.

We had huh hopes, but the service wasn’t great the size portions were so small and they forgot our wine.

The venue is a great location and the live music was great though.

We weren't sure about this place as the menu seemed a bit limited for our tastes. The initial impression was that the music was too loud (see below) and that we waited 20 minutes or more for our drinks order. However this aside the staff were friendly and our mains of veal (best veal my wife has eaten according to her) and my fillet steak were both outstanding. The desserts were both excellent too. In respect to the music this was actually not to bad at all and the inside diners were up dancing by the time we left so it clearly hit the spot.

Ambience was nice on the sidewalk under tree shade on a hot day, but a little too cafe-like. Overall, food was just fair. My tuna entree was properly cooked in terms of being seared on the outside and rare on the inside (and was tender) but just didn't taste like it was seared and sliced just for me (with a crisp outside) but more like it had been seared much earlier then sliced to serve. Not enough fennel - mostly radish. Pork (with apple, gorgonzola and sherry) was dry, especially the outside of the rolled porkbelly? slices. It looked special - like I was getting a thick slice from a full rolled roast, but the dryness made me wonder if it was cooked as an individual piece. Thank goodness the crackling was great. My partner had chargrilled octopus - nice enough but no zing and no real 'bite' to the octopus. He was impressed by the flavours of the seafood spaghetti, just wanted more seafood. We couldn't fault the prompt and efficient service, so well done to the staff for that.

We visit Rococo everytime we are in Noosa and the food never disappoints. The live music adds a lovely ambience and you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. We experienced great service this visit. We had booked a table outside but the wind had picked up and because we had a baby the staff went out of their way to set us up with a table inside.

As always, the food was very good. The music was a bit disappointing though. The setting up seemed to go on for most of the time we were there. Usually the music is very good and one of the reasons we like eating there.

There is only 1 fault with this lovely restaurant and it’s the lighting- it’s dreadful and way too dark- if you have to turn on your I phone light to get a good look at your food there is something wrong! But this problem is easily fixed-
The service, food, price and comfort are all excellent, great value for money because the meals are on the larger side, the pork was amazing . I will return

Our 3 separate drink orders were forgotten and had to reorder. The kids said their pasta had no flavour. The adult meals tasted nice. The service was friendly but got tired of chasing drink orders. Wasn’t cheap so expected more

The food was truly fabulous however they need to work out if they are a Restaurant or a Nightclub. The noise level from the Entertainer and the gaggle of bar drinkers was WAY TOO HIGH. We had to shout all night just to hear visitors we haven’t see for some time. My head and throat hurt from the effort and at one point a drunk reveller came to our table to clink our glasses. Considering it is a high end restaurant experience ... this intrusion was embarrassing!
Such a shame.

OK, it was great that we could be relocated outside as requested originally. Yes, I know it had been raining but we really didn't want to be inside in the noise. We wanted to be able to have a quiet conversation with friends we hadn't seen for a year. Your staff dealt well with our insistence and put us outside where fortunately it didn't rain! Unfortunately we were put right beside the live music but the speakers were facing away. I really think you should consider guests who would prefer some quiet.

Food was okay, but very little of it - we had to order 3 extra bowls of fries to feel fed - and extremely expensive for what you get! Service was extremely cold and bland, waitresses looked as though they wanted to be elsewhere entirely. 1 Star!

Have had good and bad experiences here. On this particular night, it was great. They were accommodating for a teenager who didn't want an 'adult' type fancy meal but was too big for the kids meal in terms of portions. The chocolate fondant is rich and great for 2 people to share. We had a lovely lady that was from Spain take care of us for most of the time we were there. It's an iconic Noosa restaurant. A great place to dine as part of your Noosa holiday experience.
