Located on the Thomas Street intersection Frenchies will gastronomically transport you to a Paris bistro, with a menu full of French classics including twice baked cheese souffle, steak frites and warm apple Tatin, complemented by an extensive wine list. Next door is Whisky Boy where the cocktail list deserves serious praise and the cuisine is contemporary with quality Australian beef and fish slowly grilled over fire.

The new comer to our area is Bandita, formerly from Mamasita Melbourne, a mexican cantina with a stylish dining room and forward thinking mexican cuisine.
In Noosa there’s now a selection of Asian fusion restaurants and we’re lucky to have our favourite, Sum Yung Guys, just a twenty minute stroll from the resort. The setting at Sum Yung Guys boasts their spirit and passion for Asian cuisine and culture. The menu is an inspiring selection of share plates such as kiang go crispy rice cake with spicy peanut relish and green apple or Thai green curry with smashed prawns, green tomato and eggplant.

Sails at Noosa Main Beach is an occasion favourite with its beach front location and delicious menu.
