A long time favourite still delivering with Head Chef Josh Harris' re-vamped menu. Best place to dine out on the Sunshine Coast by far.

This was the second time to spice bar. My first experience was amazing(Approx 1yrs ago) but this time the food was very average and my husband said he probably wouldn’t go back purely on his food , which is sad because my first experience was really lovely. 😔

The degustation menu with matched wines was exquisite. The servings were an excellent size. The non - meat offering was very tasty & interesting. The various meat dishes were to die for.
All together as good a dining experience as I have experienced anywhere - thank-you.

Absolutely fabulous. If I could give 6 stars I would.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with the 7 course degustation menu.
The food is sublime, our waiters were wonderful and friendly and the espresso martini was the best I’ve tried! We had an assistance dog with us and the staff were so accommodating to him as well.
Thank you Spice Bar.
We’ll be back.

Food was amazing but still felt hungry at the end. It would have been great to have had an extra course or even just some rice and veg with the last savoury course. We paid $89 each plus $10 for extra scallops.

The seven course degustation menu was exquisitely prepared and presented. Each dish was a delight to the eyes and the palate. The service, as we expect in Australia, was understated and not intrusive, but everpresent as we completed each plate. The size of each serving was just the right amount for moderate eating through seven courses although it helps to be a little hungry when you are working your way through this many courses. The matched wines (we shared one serving of the wines between two) were well thought out and of high quality. It's not an inexpensive experience but we think we had excellent value from a superb evening out. We recommend this restaurant as really good value in fine dining.

Our favourite restaurant on the Sunshine Coast. The recent menu change has been ted disappointing, still tasty but not as good as the explosion of flavours in the previous one.
Service has been amazing as usual though. We will be back :)

Unfortunately we were placed outside on the balcony. Despite there being heaters for warmth, atmosphere was lacking and there was noise from the street.
Service was somewhat slow, but very attentive.
Meal sizes are quite small - even the ‘large plates’ and the cocktail list was limited to mostly sweet options.
I have been here in the past and had great experiences but I fear that the standards had slipped in my recent visit. Hopefully a one-off.
Still a great vibe if you are inside the restaurant and not feeling particularly hungry.
The food is yummy but quite small portions.
Won’t be hurrying back this time unfortunately.

The quality of the food was excellent. The servings for the degustation were just right. A great taste across all menu items. The service was (and has always been) professional and friendly. The staff really know their dishes and wines. Would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

This is our fourth visit to Spice Bar and not only met our expectations but exceeded them.
The four course degustation was amazing along with the recommendation of the special scallop dish.
Our waiter Craig was awesome and made our impromptu lunch an absolute pleasure.
Presentation and the flavours were amazing from the kitchen to our table.

If you like the Beef Tataki as we do BE AWARE THEY HAVE CHANGED IT.
We prefer the original so that was disappointing when we received it on the day.
We did the set lunch menu which u have to do as the normal menu is not available for lunch.
The food was ok the flavours were all similar
They also needed something else to break up the dishes like a paw paw salad maybe with the chicken so it’s not just a piece of chicken
We have had better food experience at spice bar

Spice Bar never fails to achieve. Food was brilliant. 7 courses each one better then the last. I am still thinking about the sliced beef with wasabi and radish. Wine also just great.
