Location and contact

The only 2 hat restaurant in Noosa, Wasabi restaurant & bar overhangs the scenic Noosa River, opposite the Noosa Recreation Reserve. The entirely waterfront dining space has spectacular river views with amazing sunset vistas by day and a warm, contemporary, intimate dining space by night. Voted Queensland's #1 regional restaurant for the Good Food Guide, awarded two chefs hats, listed in Gourmet Travellers top 100 restaurants, and voted the Hottest Regional Restaurant in the Australians Hot 50 List, Wasabi's food has a contemporary sensibility that is still deep rooted in Japanese purity.

This should be taken as a total experience; not to judge each course and morsel of food. The wonderful setting by the river is best enjoyed at the early setting to enjoy the superb sunsets but apart from the natural environment, the attention to every...More
