There’s a reason that cosmopolitan Gympie Terrace is known as ‘Eat Street’. So, whether you’ve been to Noosaville before or planning your first trip, we’ve chosen the Gympie Terrace restaurants you NEED to try.
YOYO Bar & Restaurant
Slip into that relaxed Mediterranean dining experience at YOYO Bar & Restaurant. Upbeat music along with the bar-style seating spills onto the timber deck overlooking Noosa River – offering a relaxed and uplifting mood.
Owners Marc Romanella and Lara Graham have created a restaurant that prides itself on quality service and exceptional food and drink with a laid-back and coastal charm.
You’ll enjoy a flavour explosion from Head Chef, Ash Warncken, who creates dishes from a locally sourced, sharing style tapas menu that offers some Spanish favourites with an Australian twist. Some firm favourites are the Pork belly, Basque cider, parsnip puree & torched spring onion, Charred Octopus, kumara, pickled carrot, romesco & chilli oil, and of course, patatas bravas. Get ready for a fine sensory experience!
You’re in safe hands with the knowledgeable and passionate Romanella, who has 35 years’ experience in the industry. You’ll be treated to an exceptional wine list that Lara oversees, liaising with up to 30 suppliers. Or if cocktails are your thing, you might be spending a while choosing from their long and impressive selection.
Look no further that 250 Grammi for authentic Italian cuisine. Danny Giannarelli, founder and owner and business and life partner Daniela Pellizzato remain true to Italian heritage and flavours, therefore 75% of ingredients are imported from Italy. They are known for their fabulous pizzas, including gluten free, because they import high-quality flour and yeast from Italy. This provides authenticity, their unique selling point in this market. They also respect and love the region’s local produce, so they use locally sourced fresh veggies, fish and seafood.
Lively and atmospheric, this is the type of restaurant where you can let your hair down and have a good time with your friends and family. Designed to share, you’ll get a taste of more dishes – lucky you!
Head Chef, Melvin Benjamin Matos Feliz (Benjo), moved from the Dominican Republic to Italy as a toddler and grew up surrounded by Tuscan culinary culture. He has worked in France, the UK and Canada. Head Chef Pizza Art, Stefano Simoni, is hailed as one of the best Pizzaiolo in Melbourne and works an authentic Marana Forni pizza oven at 250 Grammi. From years of research and studies, pizza is Stefano’s lifelong passion – you’re in for a treat!
Maisie’s Seafood & Steakhouse
Experience classic seafood by the charming Noosa River. Originally built in 1920 and run by the Massoud family as a café, it was the first of its kind in the district. Maisie Massoud, who was known then as ‘The Favourite’ worked as a chef and waitress at her parents’ café and it was eventually named after Maisie to Maisie’s Seafood & Steakhouse. Before her passing in 2005, Maisie would regularly dine here, enjoying oysters for entrée, main and dessert. Photos of Maisie and her family adorn the walls, where you can absorb the history and ambience.
Sit down to a great value meal, offering the firm family favourites, including Fisherman’s Basket, steak with your choice of sauce and fish and chips. Freshly prepared using the finest local produce, when possible, you’ll be served generous portions, so arrive hungry!
Choose to dine inside to soak up the colourful and lively atmosphere or dine outside and enjoy the cool river breeze and a bit of people watching. Keep it casual and bring your own bottle of wine for a moderate corkage $5 per person.
Embrace the German cuisine at wanderlust – managed by Marc and Val, who relocated to Noosaville from North Lakes in 2019. Experience German Café culture mixed with Noosaville’s laidback lifestyle. So, whether you just want a coffee, a traditional hearty German meal washed down with a classic beer, or more of a classic Aussie breakfast, this is your place.
Warm and welcoming, offering sensational food, full of flavour and perfectly cooked, plus a great selection of German and European beers to accompany your meal. If you’ve never tried German cuisine, then try it at Wanderlust!
