Noosa Place Resort

Gympie Terrace restaurants you need to try!

October 28, 2021

Can’t decide where to eat from all the fabulous Gympie Terrace restaurants? We’re not surprised. There’s such an excellent range of cuisine from passionate owners and chefs that ideally, you’d eat in them all!

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.

250 Grammi

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.

Wanderlust

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!

The team are friendly and attentive, so kickback with your friends and family and get into the holiday spirit.

Pomona gin distillery – Go where the Noosa locals go

Love gin? Then you’ll love the Pomona gin distillery

 

Located in Pomona and within the Noosa Shire is Pomona Distilling Co. Specialising in small batch production, they pick, select, distil, blend and taste all their gin before bottling and labelling by hand. By allowing their product the time to age, this allows the unique flavours of their organic botanicals to infuse and blend with the pure local spring water. This creates a premium quality gin that reflects their creativity, character and community spirit.

If gin’s not your thing, don’t worry, there’s a mouth-watering selection of cocktails, wine and beer to keep you happy and refreshed.

So, if you fancy something different, why not book a couple of nights with us and head to the Pomona gin distillery and enjoy one of their popular gin tasting paddles!

 

Earthy food with Thai street food flavours

If it’s scrumptious food you’re after, then the Distillery has got you covered! Set in the original Pomona Bakery, dating back to the early 1900’s, you can indulge in earthy food inspired by Thai street food flavours in the Bistro.

Choose from a great selection of small and large plates including scallops, pork belly and eggplant. With gluten-free and vegan options, there’s something for everyone. Hungry yet?

Next time you’re here, get your taste buds tingling and visit the Pomona gin distillery, the newest gin distillers in Noosa, and go where the locals go!

 

More than just a distillery

The Pomona Distilling Co is more than just a distillery. It’s about showcasing the charming village of Pomona to the world and unique small-batch spirits focused on quality rather than quantity.

Master Distiller and owner, Robin Yates has been crafting this concept for 40 years. Robin experiments with gin blends using native organic botanicals, some foraged from his Pomona farm.

So why not join the Pomona community and celebrate with great locally produced food and smooth gin?
