Incredible quality of food: the duck dumplings and corn cakes were simply beyond delicious. I liked very much also the pumpkin gyoza and the fish ones (sorry cannot recall the name). The wine list is very good but the prices are way to high. The spicy Martini Lyches cocktail was good but a little too sweet. But the worst part... More

A group of us went here this evening. There is a choice of a set menu or a la carte. We mixed our choices between the two and everyone was very happy with the quality and quantity of our meals. Everyone who had the $49 set menu was happy with their selections (the passionfruit desert was absolutely delightful). The a... More

After many visits to enjoy the banquet dinners we finally decided to try out the 'locals night' menu with some friends. We could choose between two different dishes for a starter, main and dessert for $49. A glass of wine is included in the special which was nice. I tried the prawn and crab dumplings which I knew would not... More

You'd expect big city prices and glossy photos to mean creme de creme in a small enclave like Sunshine? BE WARNED... whilst the food might be OK, customer service is intollarably slow and innatentive; to the point of outright surly staff. Something's seriously wrong in the business; for if the staff don't want to be there, you need to ask,... More

Hi. We love Sunshine Beach and I apologise if you found the service not up to standard on your visit to Embassy XO. As you can see from the other reviews on TripAdvisor we rarely have complaints and most visitors compliment our staff. If there was an issue on the night perhaps you could have discussed this with the manager... More

Great venue for a wonderful, generous and sumptuous dining experience - the manager is always welcoming and the food its very well priced for value - my only negative would be the food during the so called "bar snacks" period, not up to the same quality!

A huge thank you to Embassy XO for the perfect Valentine's night! I was the lucky winner of a competition they were running and received a complimentary dinner for my husband and I. Wonderful food, service and company. One of our favourite restaurants in Noosa, see you again soon!

This was a very good meal for a full restaurant with a fixed menu for this special occasion. An entre, two mains served together and a sweet. While the individual dishes were all VG the portions were incredibly small for example one of the 2 mains consisted of 2 prawns. The other main was a small square of crisp belly... More

Hi. Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the food on our special menu. Your feedback re the portion size is appreciated. Perhaps we tried to achieve too much for the night at the fixed price.

My husband and I enjoyed another really lovely meal at Embassy XO when we booked in for the $49 locals' deal (a set 3 course menu with a glass of wine or beer, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings). All staff were very attentive, the food arrived at well-timed intervals and the food itself was fantastic. We're not usually dessert eaters... More
