Locale Restaurant and Bar Noosa
We go to Locale as a local restaurant with friends and take our visitors. It is a bit of a Hastings St institution with good food and ambience. Service is relaxed but usually on the mark.
We expect an expensive night when you add cocktails and wine to dinner.
Disappointing for a Italian restaurant like this that the pasta is pre-portioned according to service staff, so don’t expect the kitchen to meet a request for entre/primo size pasta before your main course.Same size and cost as if you selected as a main.Good cost and portion control I guess but as a customer I was flabbergasted that I was sitting in an upmarket Italian in Hastings St being told that rules are rules and it couldn’t be done!
Surely an entre size pasta before my main beef dish was not unreasonable?
Looking forward to going back to Italy as soon as we can where people ,food and wine mix wonderfully without rules!
Very indifferent service Won’t go back
Beautiful setting, incredible wine list with a good variety of price options, delicious italian food
Awesome meal and experience, highly recommended.
We visit Locale each time we are holidaying in Noosa as I love the food. This time, the food was just as good but the service was shocking. An hour and 10 minutes until we received our meal. When I went to ask, two different waiters told us it was "on it's way". Quite clearly our order had been missed. It was only 3 bowls of pasta. Waiters never came near us, however several waiters spent huge amounts of time talking to two separate couples seated at the bar area.
Finally when we received our meals, by the only waiter who had the courtesy to explain that yes our order did get missed, the night had been ruined. Full credit to the young girl waiter, who was probably the youngest on staff. She was polite, courteous and explained what had gone wrong. Rather that just telling us "it's on it's way". Some of the waiters here now seem very pretentious. I have no idea why.
Shocking service and very disappointing.
Overall very enjoyable. Food and service was better than expected. Would definitely keep on my list to go back
Fantastic but some background music would have been nice or a live Music
Great night. Thanks really enjoyed the meal. Thank you
A throughly fabulous experience from staff to wine to food.
It’s not cheap but I would happily go again soon
delicious food. A little noisy perhaps with so many people but otherwise excellent.
Fantastic. The crab pasta was the best. The service was superb
Wonderful dining experience, and caring attentive staff.
Absolutely superb service and food! Highly recommend!
Staff all good
Food overpriced and under seasoned
Superb. Love this place. It's the balance of wonderful service, atmosphere and incredible food.
Thanks to Ellie who helped distract our granddaughter during our meal -all staff were lovely
Our dinner was excellent the service was fantastic.There was plenty of space between our table .So far it was the best dinner that we had during our stay .The waiter was very attentive all of his suggestions were the best .We couldn’t ask for a better dinner experience.
The food was terrific, not a single dish dissatisfying & a credit to the chefs. The wine was superb. The waiter we had was not overly helpful when asking questions about the meals which took away from what was meant to be a special occasion for us and not a great start. The finisher was after paying and leaving a tip to compliment the chefs hard work we left the restaurant and 20meters down the road asked if we paid, replied yes. 1 minute later we were pulled up down the street again asking if we paid. The whole evening when from hero to zero after twice being asked publicly if we paid and I wondered if I should even left a tip. Not how we wanted to celebrate us becoming new parents. Possibly a one off and should not take away from the restaurants atmosphere, ambience, food & wine. Although not great for us we would still recommend Locale to friends.
Fantastic restaurant. Rio and the team are wonderful and did everything possible to accommodate extra guests for us. Thank you. We love this place.
Lovely food, great ambience. wonderful service. Great experience all round.
A perfect night, wonderful service and incredible dessert / wine
Great location, nice decor, great service, extensive menu with great wine selection, high recommended
Filippo is a legend and deserves a pay rise, phenomenal work
Overall it’s a nice restaurant however have had better meals there in the past. The crayfish amd bisque didn’t have much flavour and the steak accompaniments disappointed, the flavours didn’t compliment the steak, I definitely needed the extra sides ordered.
Fabulous night! This is our second visit and didn’t disappoint! Great food, extensive menu, wine list is good and service excellent.
Good food and vibe, Melbourne style, stylish bar, reasonable and friendly service, very noisy.
I always enjoy the dining experience at Locale.
The food is great but I think it is the ambience of the restaurant and service that really sharpens the evening.
The wine list is comprehensive and Rio was very helpful with selecting the best wines to compliment our meals.
We will return, thank you to the team.

Everything was perfect. The food was amazing, atmosphere and service wonderful. A firm favourite, we will be back again and again.
we ordered the entree as the ‘crayfish’ and it came with a cold spinach, egg frittata like base and 2 prawns cut into the dish. It definitely wasn’t fine dining. Unfortunately the seating we were placed in felt like a walkway and the service wasn’t as attentive as last time, however plenty of staff around.
Wine was delicious.
Lamb and pasta were amazing and cooked perfectly. We’ve been here before and had the most perfect dinner. We were also seated at the booths and much nicer ambience.
I would’ve overlooked the entree had the service have been better and my husband would’ve overlooked the service had the entree been better. High end dining is great but only when all meals are a 10/10. This didn’t hit the spot this time.
The food was absolutely delicious!! The waiter we had was very attentive and nice. He asked for my name and found out that it was my birthday so when we ordered dessert the staff came out and got everyone’s attention and began singing happy birthday to me and remembered my name! They had written happy birthday on the plate of my dessert and it had a sparkler in it! Throughout the night our waiter kept wishing me happy birthday. It was a very enjoyable experience and I’d definitely recommend this restaurant!
The Gnocchi entree was excellent and had us looking forward to the main course. On the whole though the main courses were disappointing. The Cavolfiore (baked cauliflower) was boring and had very little flavour. It was simply baked cauliflower on top of minced cauliflower (couscous), nothing to write home about. The Agnello (lamb rump) which was beautifully cooked, was sitting on a bed of strawberry and pine nut soffritto. This strange rather sour concoction had red mushy pine nuts in it with the texture of lentils. Overall neither of the main courses were enjoyable.
An elegant but relaxed ambiance, beautiful setting with great service. Food was good however just something missing (except for the desserts) that I can't put my finger on.. perhaps too many completing flavours. Still recommended however
Upset stomaches from bad fish, under-seasoned almost across the board and overpriced food lacking originality
It was my birthday lunch with my husband & I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
The food was so delicious, the cocktails incredible & service was relaxed but professional.
we have dined at Locale many times, even attended a wedding there and always found the food and service fantastic. Last Saturday the service was appalling, food (especially the starters ) way overpriced and tasteless.. such a shame as we were in Noosa for my birthday but we will never step foot in Locale again and I will be letting my family and friends know of our terrible experience..
They know how to charge. The food is on the foodie side of Italian. Service only average. Nice place though.
Fancy decor, comfortable setting. Food was nice (gnocchi was the standout) but overpriced-- Sydney and Melbourne have much better value Italian waterside restaurants. Nice first try but will be the last given the multitude of alternatives in the area.
Love love love it!!!
Great service and delicious food. Very nice restaurant. Would highly recommend !
Excellent in every respect
Catered for me well a coeliac
