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.
Fabulous food, friendly staff and great atmosphere, especially on the music nights featuring sound such as Flamarique!
Restaurant has a pleasant ambiance and we enjoyed our meals. They do a good chocolate fondant pudding here.
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.
It was ok. Good service hard to find in Noosa but staff are friendly so it makes up for it. Food is ok to good. Music is great and live.
Not as good as it was a couple of years ago, we won't be back
Food was lovely. The waiter very pleasant and accommodating.
Lovely atmosphere but unfortunately food was not really good. I ordered snapper and they served me barramundi instead and would not acknowledge it was not snapper . Pretty average experience
Food was not as good as previous years and my oysters kilpatrick were disappointing.
Entertainment wasn’t quite our style but some diners enjoyed it.
Service was good
We visited twice during our stay at Noosa 1st time it was great 2nd time we ordered schnapper 1 serve was great the other was poor
We had a lovely evening, food, service and price spot on. Will dine here again as have been for past 3 years
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Rococo's. The atmosphere was great, the food was excellent, the staff were attentive and friendly and the entertainment was fabulous. The joint was "jumping"1
Birthday very good food
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
great spot, food, and enjoy the added live music that is usually on offer.
Very good service and delicious food! A great place to eat if you have a group booking and love the vibe of live entertainment while dining.
Great welcoming staff, a menu with something foe everyone and good wine list. They have live music at weekends and a bar to have a drink at after dinner or just visit to listen to the music.
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.
Fantastic! Food and wine was all superb. Excellent value for money.
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!
Delicious food and great atmosphere with live music that was unobtrusive. We will be back.
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.
