Modern Australian

Sails Noosa, in Noosa Heads, is a restaurant that prides itself on serving contemporary Australian cuisine made with seasonal and local produce in its charming beachside eatery. The charred ciabatta bread with house smoked trout butter and the freshly shucked oysters with shallot vinegar with caraway grissini bread sticks make delectable appetizer options. Some of Sails Noosa's specialties include seafood dishes, such as the scorched miso marinated toothfish fillet with pickled watermelon radish and orange miso, the barbecue mud crab slathered in roast garlic butter and the mahi mahi beer battered fish and chips. Not in the mood for seafood? Sails Noosa also has sumptuous land fare, such as the grass-fed steak in mushroom butter, as well as vegetarian dishes, like the baked butternut pumpkin-filled zucchini flowers with potato gnocchi and pesto.

Sails Noosa is also an exceptional events space for both public and private functions.

The food was nice, but the service was slack. We needed to flag a waiter down to order our first drink, no one told us about the specials on the board and we had to open and pour our own wine. Not what you expect for the $$.

Excellent meal and service. Unfortunately, with a mobility challenged mother and only one handicapped parking spot available, which was occupied, parking and accessing the restaurant was difficult. Notwithstanding we thoroughly enjoyed the meal, wine, and table location right on the beach front. Well done, and we'll certainly return.

Greedy and profiteering. Apparently there was a 2 hour limit on table time that was within the booking fine print and not advised elsewhere in person upon arrival. Mains delivered to the table with 15min to go..! The manager didn’t even apologise when I explained it was my 25th wedding anniversary. He just gave me the bill and said our time was up.

I'd tried to get in this restaurant for 12 years every time I visited Noosa but failed. I remembered to pre-book this time and the wait was well worth it! Great service team and every mouthful was amazing - huge compliments to the chef! We will be back!

A real dining experience. Food was superb. Serving sizes were good and allowed us to also have entrees. Many good wine by glass which, on waiter/ sommeliers advice were able to match wines nicely to food courses.
Our table was in front overlooking beach on a magic summer night; perfect setting!
