Take a ride

We can’t get enough of Outrigger Noosa. Not just because it is located in a very special spot at the top of Little Hastings Street in Noosa, or that it has an awesome menu - from their fabulous restaurant View on Little Hastings, or that it supports local suppliers where possible, from Moya Valley chicken (the hinterland), Noosa Spanner Crab, Mooloolaba prawns,

Divine destination function venue

at November 29, 2013 | 11:36 am | 0 Comment


I wrote not that long ago about the delicious (and wonderfully indulgent) experience in Outrigger Noosa’s restaurant View on Little Hastings (I am still salivating from the meal that we enjoyed!) What I didn’t mention is that they have function facilities, and this makes for an ideal destination function center, in one of the most magnificent locations. They

I was fortunate enough to dine at the Summit Restaurant three times during one week. Yes you hear me right! Three very important occasions that the Summit was ideal for: 1 ).  Date night with hubby, 2 ).  Sunday girls lunch and 3 ).  The in-laws in town. As I have mentioned previously I am definitely one to analyse everything and expect quality and consistency, in

Many locals (SEQ’lders) love to head to Noosa to enjoy a weekend away, go for a beach day trip or attend one of the many events held in this divine location, such as the International Food & Wine Festival and the Noosa Triathlon. I was lucky enough recently to be invited to stay a night at the fabulous Outrigger Noosa with my husband and boy was it an ideal way to

Saké – contemporary Japanese cuisine

at June 6, 2013 | 11:37 pm | 0 Comment


Saké, located on the upper level at Eagle Street Pier, epitomises the funky and diverse designer spaces that (I think secretly) we all want to dine in (on a regular basis). Perched on the waterfront, this inner-city modern Japanese venue combines a divine ‘local flavour’ menu (kitchen led by Executive Chef Shaun Presland), with an extensive and mouth-watering list

Welcome to Brisbane’s Bavarian Bier Cafe

at May 9, 2013 | 1:39 am | 0 Comment


The Bavarian Bier Café at Eagle Street Pier is the first instalment in Brisbane of the successful Sydney franchise. Gauging by its success thus far (down to a myriad of factors – bier selection, menu, location, location, location, fit out and ‘uniforms’), it is just a matter of time before one pops up on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.Being married to a German

Riverbar & Kitchen: Cocktails & Views

There was a big cavity on the riverfront since the Boardwalk Bar & Bistro at Eagle Street Pier closed down. It was a crime to leave such a unique spot on the Brisbane River without a fitting venue for so long. So it was with much anticipation that Brisbane greeted it’s new addition in December last year, and Riverbar & Kitchen has not disappointed. Riverbar
