But only if you know where to go. Luckily, we have the inside scoop on the best plates on the street.
If your hours of pampering and lounging haven’t relaxed you enough, take a quick stroll to Bistro C to wine, dine and unwind. Its classic resort fare changes with the season, so make sure to swing by again on your next stay.
There’s eating local, then there’s eating Locale. This Italian diner is tucked into one of Hastings Street, but it’s locally-sourced bites would be worth a trek across town. Stop by for lunch, dinner or a cocktail—or all three.
If your holiday planning was constantly interrupted by daydreams of beachside seafood with world-class wines—pinch yourself. Then book in at Season Restaurant. Easy yet elegant, Season Restaurant combines the sights and tastes of Noosa in one incredible dining experience.

Pair beach walks and El Capitano and you’ve got the perfect Noosa day. This fine bistro is trusted for its take on old world pizzas, made using certified organic fresh milled flour, filtered water, sea salt and a 72hour fermentation process. Plus, it has just about as many cocktails as Noosa Main Beach has grains of sand.

Don't miss out on their $2 oyster happy hour - perfect to pair with one of their chilled cocktails or boutique wines.
