Decided that I had to escape Victoria for a short trip interstate and decided to head to Noosa, upon recommendations from friends. On the whole, I loved it! It was quite and quaint, the beach was lovely and the hotel (Sheraton) was awesome! Things that I didn’t quite like: things are expensive there! Whilst there are some dining highs, there are definitely some lows.
The hotel was fantastic, we were really lucky to get a good deal on the room there. Central and close to everything, food there was decent (we had breakfast included) and of course, it had a nice pool (which we had burgers by one day).
Food worth traveling for: Wasabi (pics attached) – fantastic Japanese by the river, authentic and delicious. River Cottage – a bit out of the way but the food was stunning, Modern Australian and great service. Ricky’s – we didn’t actually get to dine there (booked out every night!) but the people there were lovely and referred us to River Cottage. Local surf lifesavers – good size and well priced pub grub. Lindoni’s – good italian, authentic but a tad overpriced and snooty.
Food that’s not worth traveling for: Cafe on Hastings: overpriced and really average. Bercaros: overpriced and average. Bistro C: overpriced and average. Sheraton Seafood Buffet: don’t do it, radioactive orange prawns.(11th – 16th October 2010)
