For the last weekend of school holidays and to see our sons off for their final year of school we made reservations for ourselves and friends at Locale. On Saturday night Noosa was overflowing, restaurants and bars were packed with queues at some popular haunts. We knew parking would be horrendous so we availed ourselves of a driver and it made the evening far more enjoyable over several drinks. We did however, arrive some 15 minutes early and were directed to outside seating whilst our table was cleared and readied; drink orders were taken and arrived in reasonable time. We could not fault our waiters on the evening, prompt, courteous service and good banter exchanged with the more senior of them. Whilst management has no control over this, the noise levels initially were quite excessive and conversation at normal levels impossible. The acoustics of dozens of people all chatting and laughing surrounded by hard floors, walls and ceilings with live house music makes for a noisy place. It did quieten down later and normal volumes resumed. We enjoyed Antipasti, Primi and Secondi Piatti dishes, all were met with nods of approval and only empty plates left the table. Minor detractions for me were the scallops which were not firm in consistency, and the risotto slightly overcooked with a fainter taste than expected from spanner crab and the sea urchin butter. The standout dish was the mains of Black Angus beef fillet - perfect in every sense. Desserts were well done, with three of us enjoying a cheese platter with extra cheese provided later as a complimentary gesture by the house. Highly recommended, but ensure you make reservations well in advance during peak holiday times. Locale is definitely a contender for dining on our next visit to Noosa. Molto Buono.

Excellent food and great decor. The service was great also. Easily one of the best restaurant ‘s in Noosa.

Locale did us a huge favour when the gas went out at a nearby restaurant and accommodated us even though it was nearly 9pm. The waiter was really friendly and recommended a great dish and wine to my boyfriend who said it was one of the best seafood pastas he's had! My starter of beetroot and zucchini was amazing too, and the venison main was also great. We'd definitely come back here!

We booked to visit here some time ago and were excited to visit for dinner as a family.

We arrived and were immediately seated in the sexy near-all-Black interior, which feels really cool.

The crowd is peppered with families and a mix of couples and groups and is excellent in the way in which all groups “blend”.

The kids menu is excellent and arrived quickly with the adults food being slightly more complex but delicious.

If you want simple Italian food on a budget then this isn’t for you. This is sophisticated and not cheap but definitely worth visiting.

If you can get a table you will not be disappointed.
