The food was very good , but the service was a bit average . The waiter kept forgetting to check our wine and top it up so had to do it ourselves . He was also quite rude and kept correcting us and felt like he was talking down to us a little. We asked if there was a cocktail Jug, as I saw it online , and he said “ This isn’t a cocktail jug type of restaurant “ a simple “ No unfortunately not “ would have been a normal answer.
We had the 7 course degustation meal with matching wines, the first 3 dishes were below average, prawns were tasteless with a pile of green pawpaw, the raw tuna had no seasoning, and the beef wasn’t flash on the tastebuds either. We had such big expectations and we’re super keen to eat here. But after 3 plates of disappointing food we didn’t continue the meal got the bill and left early.. I didn’t feel like paying for the plates we had to be honest.
Spice Bar was an amazing yet outstanding experience when it comes to not only food but the service and atmosphere. Myself and my family were very impressed with Peter our waiter who was just so efficient and quick to act. We will definitely be coming back, we all had an amazing time.
Spice Bar never disappoints! The food is phenomenal, the cocktails delicious and the service comes with a smile ☺️
Had the 7 course gustation. 4 items were quite reasonable - 3 items quite average - Taste is the issue but also quantity - we did not leave full. For the price, expected more. On the positive, service was great, but I hate the end of night subtle push to leave a tip (sadly they are not alone in this regard). I wouldn't hurry back I am afraid.
Delicious food and great service!
Delicious dinner. Great atmosphere. Expensive. Highly recommend for special occasions.
If you haven't visited here yet you MUST give it a go! One of the nicest, relaxed lunches I've had in a long time, the food was just sensational......beautiful and fresh, the service was so warm and inviting.....I can't wait to go back for dinner next time, the wine list looks incredible! 10/10 Spice Bar!!
Gluten free, vegan degustation was not good, consisted mostly of soy sauce-based dishes with tofu. While the textures were enjoyable, the flavours were bland and there was much left to be desired.
My dining partners had the normal 7-course degustation and were also disappointed. The meats were over- or under-cooked, and no specific element of the dish was highlighted.
The beer, wine and spirits list was standard - not below nor above expectations.
Table service was variable. Most of the time we had no idea what we were eating as the plate was put down in front of us and the waitstaff quickly left.
Given the reputation of Spice Bar in the South East Queensland scene, we were very disappointed and would not return, nor recommend to our friends.
We have been to the Spice Bar a few times now. Will keep coming back. Always an enjoyable experience.
This is a classy restaurant. Extremely well presented food and flavours that will amaze you.
The staff are professional in ever aspect.
Service was not good, Slow and lack of attention...
We weren't offered a dessert menu and waited 45-60mins between starter and main....
We had to continually get the waitress attention to order good and drinks...
When spending this much $$$ service needs to be better....
Not a welcoming experience.....
Good food well presented.
A great option for contemporary asian cuisine. The menu might seem a little questionable but the end result is awesome. Even our picky children ate a variety of the food so don't let the menu thow you off.
We ordered the degustation menu. Every course apart from dessert was very protein centric. The dishes weren’t balanced. There was a lack of flavour in most of the dishes apart from the ribs. That was delicious. The wait staff were attentive and polite. The dishes came out in a timely manner. Unfortunately we unanimously felt the food wasn’t great and therefore the bill was too high for what we received.
We had the 5 course gustation option. Each and every course was beautifully presented and meticulously prepared. The taste was great, matched only by the service.
Well worth it. Great food and service. Recommended!
Really good, food the best. Much improved from last visit. Looking forward to going again soon.
Honestly the customer service was pretty poor. Give me a call 0456230930.
I'll tell you what was done and share what some feedback.
We were wanting to give a 50 dollar tip but honestly the whole table felt like it wasn't deserved. Plus I cant call you guys from your phone number on google maps
Food was delicious and high standard and service was great. The cocktails were also of a high standard
It was a wonderful experience. The food was exquisite.
We thought the food was ok
The Mooloolaba prawn entree suggested it came with Nama Jim dressing however it didn’t
The beef rib main was far too rich so we could not eat it and therefore left it
The Asian vegetable was delicious
Loved the spice bar, we went there for my mum's birthday and the food and service was to die for!
The waiters knowledge of wine and food was outstanding!
The food was amazing!
The food was delicious, at a very high standard. We ordered a 5 course menu but we had different wait staff each time and they seemed confused about our order, what dish we were up to, they had to check with other staff to see what we were having, said we would receive a ceviche and was served a prawn dish? they didn’t provide table water, had to seek out staff to order drinks and on it goes. As I said the food that came out was great. The staff need a bit more education and direction, it took away from the night out especially when we spent over $200.
Came in with high expectations as we have heard great things, only to be incredibly underwhelmed by all but one of the 7 courses. Service was very average as well, as we waited 20 mins after being seated for someone to come take our drink order.
Tasty magaritas even though not on the menu, delicious food, great service
Food wine and recommendations were excellent as was the service
Great presentation great taste great service! Well done team , Hervey Bay scallops and the duck were the overall winners
Excellent food, very tasty and attentive staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special night out.
We had fried mushrooms, chicken wings (hot but very tasty) & octopus as small plates. For large plates we had the beef ribs & half duck. Portions were very generous and excellent. Our waitress brought over their wine connoisseur who agreed with our selection- the Maude Pinot noir which complemented our selections very well. Overall we enjoyed the experience & service was excellent. Will definitely go back.
I tried the 7 course degustation with matching wines. Seafood and beef dishes were all excellent. The dessert was a bit of a disappointing finish. All the wines were very good and the matching was spot on. Service was helpful, attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend!
Overall a good dining experience.
Knowledgeable waiter, except for the relief waiter.
Great food wine and service!
Perfect service and food
Generally very good, but the waitress keot trying to remove course plates before all 4 of us were finished which was a little irritating.
Exceptionally slow service, very small portions. It was a shame as the ambiance is lovely
Waited 20 minutes for someone to take a drink order. Given incorrect information when ordering meals and had to change order. In 2 hours only checked on twice to get more drinks. Had to find a waitress to order dessert. Meals were very nice but don't go there if you are hungry. We all grabbed a bite afterwards. People were friendly, but overall a very average experience and we won't be returning.
We have been to the Spice Bar frequently and generally have loved the food. Out of seven courses at our most recent visit, we thought that only two of them was up to the usual Spice Bar haute cuisine standard. Recent change of staff in the kitchen?
Beautiful food and lovely staff. First time at Spice Bar but will definitely be back.
