Sunshine Coast attractions

The Sunshine Coast has numerous excellent restaurants. Some you will find on the beach, others on the river edge and award winning restaurants hidden in the scenic hinterland. Every town has restaurants and cafes to suit all budgets and tastes.

Sunshine Coast restaurants

The quality of the local produce, the skills of the local chefs and a lot of investment in recent years has made the Sunshine Coast one of the best places in Australia to enjoy eating out.

Berardo's Restaurant
Hastings Street, Noosa (07 5447 5666)
On Hastings Street Noosa, the classiest restaurant, with a mantra of only the best of everything every time, is undoubtedly the multi award-winning berardo's restaurant and bar. The menu, a beautifully presented sectionalised compendium, details everything from entrees, mains and a six course degustation, through to an extensive list of cocktails, spirits, beers and wines including many premium vintages. The compendium has been described as "almost a hymn book to gastronomy, containing everything a fussy foodie could desire". The style of food is modern Australian with an edge. It exudes intelligence, accuracy and always the "wow factor". To book call.

Berardo's On the Beach
Hastings Street, Noosa (07 5448 0888)
Mid way along the boardwalk, at the On the Beach complex and jutting out onto the beach like the prow of a ship, just metres from the waves, is berardo's on the beach bistro. This addition to Noosa's restaurant scene takes relaxing beachside dining to the nth most brilliant degree.The dishes use premium quality produce that hasn't been overworked and sauces that enhance rather than overshadow. Bruno Loubet is Noosa's first Michelin starred chef. He is the executive chef of both berardo's restaurant & bar and berardo's on the beach.

Berardo's on the Beach

Bistro C
49 Hastings Street, Noosa Heads (07 5447 2855)
Has to be included for the amazing view over Noosa Beach and one of those places the whole family will enjoy, a safe bet in Noosa at any time of the day.

Coconut Grove
46 Duke Street, Sunshine Beach
Modern Australian and one of several good restaurants at Sunshine Beach

Eats at Eumundi
Memorial Drive, Eumundi (07 5442 8555)
Eats has been a Sunshine Coast Hinterland foodies institution for over 12 years, dedicated to the best and freshest in food - sourced locally wherever possible.At the very centre of the Eumundi Markets, great for breakfast before you shop and lunch once you stop. More than just a great breakfast or lunch on market days - try the less hectic days of the week for a more leisurely time in the relaxed casual, alfresco atmosphere. Dinner is served on Thursday nights or any night if you have a special group.

Ba Vigo
3/27 Cotton Tree Parade, Cotton Tree (07 5479 1000)
Modern Spanish.

Blue Angel
235 Gympie Terrace, Noosaville (07 5473 0800)
First tested a few days after opening and some years later still very good modern Australian dining.

6 Wharf Street, Maroochydore (07 5452 7771)
Always popular and good views of the Maroochy river

Embassy XO
Duke Street, Sunshine Beach (07 5455 4460)
Was at one time Alegria the very first restaurant that eGuide featured when we started in 2001. Now more oriental in feel and a new addition to dining in Sunshine Beach. (07 5455 4460)

1/12 Beerburrum Street, Dicky Beach, Caloundra (07 5438 9930)
Casual and comfortable and plenty of travel images to browse which always interests us.

257 Gympie Terrace, Noosaville
A long standing favourite that is always good.  

Harry's on Buderim
11 Harry's Lane, Buderim (07 5445 6661)
Where locals go to dine in a typical Queenslander

195 Weyba Road, Noosaville (07 5449 9755)
Known by the locals as not in the main tourist strip and there is a reason why it is popular!

King Ludwigs
401 Mountain View Road, Maleny (07 5499 9377)
Germany in Maleny

Le Relais Bessan
344 Flaxton Drive, Flaxton (07 5445 7157)
A favourite for the MD of eGuide who regularly drives up the mountain to go to France. It is very French in design and you can expect a full welcome from the flamboyant host Thierry Clerc. The fixed menu is typical French and the prices are very reasonable.

13 Hastings Street, Noosa Heads (07 5447 5111)
Has to be in and the one for years that we have used for birthday celebrations.

Spice Bar
4/19 First Avenue, Mooloolaba (07 5444 2022)
Asian menu and all good

Spirit House
20 Ninderry Road, Yandina (07 5446 8994)
This one is famous! And one we go often to but not a last minute decision as often fully booked for weeks for dinner. Lunch is a bit easier to find a table. The food is outstanding and have never disappointed and the setting is very Thai set around a small pond.

Still Water
1/36 Dupforth Avenue, Maroochydore (07 5452 7660)
Japanese served well and without pretensions.

The Terrace
Landsborough Road, Maleny (07 5494 3700)
A long established favourite for many and with views across the Sunshine Coast.

2 Quamby Place, Noosa Sound (07 5449 2443)
This one we discovered when it first opened in Sunshine Beach and next to the eGuide office! Now in Quamby place overlooking the sea and had gone on to be one the best restaurants in Australia.
