We have been in Noosa for 5 days and already eaten here twice. The first time was best. We went for the seafood sharing tower the second time and were disappointed with the meal. First meal was stunning

Great location right at the Noosa river. Unpretentious, great super-fresh seafood. We sat outside and fed the waterbirds with excess chips, while enjoying our fish and chips, prawns and calamari. Honestly simple and good.

Popped into the Boathouse for a sneaky arvo beer & snack by the water while I read my book. Solo travellers are never given the ‘good’ tables without some reluctance from wait staff. Although the maître’d wasn’t overly hospitable (I can’t blame her though -...More
