We tried 5 restaurants recently on a trip to Sorrento. This was was rated No 1 on Trip Advisor and deservedly so. Excellent food, an extensive wine list and very good service. It was very busy on the Saturday night and right from the minute we walked in, we could see it was popular with the regulars. It wasnt a... More

I always have some trepidation when trying a highly regarded restaurant but Loquat proved to be a wonderful experience. Another review called it noisy-show me a popular restaurant that isn't! At least the dining area was broken up with dividing walls and there was sound deadening carpet. It added to the atmosphere. Our meals were delightful and the service impeccable.... More

Loved the food, obliging and attentive service and good humour! We had the octopus and soufflé for starters which was well done and pork belly and duck leg confit for mains - think the pork belly better than the duck but only by a margin! Very generous pour of wines by the glass and would've love dessert but was far... More

6 of us went to Loquat for a long awaited catchup. Found it very disappointing. Very noisy so hard to hold a conversation. Over priced for the quality. Meals disappointing eg Pork Belly - mushy pork, little flavour to crackling, cabbage over marinated. Seafood pasta bland with runny sauce. Date/Pecan dessert bland. Also the menu is fixed price for two... More

First time we have visited Loquat but won't be the last. Very gracious service and were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent. We shared the house special entre and my wife followed with a zucchini dish sourced from the garden. My barramundi on a paella base could not be faulted, all complemented with a delicious garden salad.... More

8 mums have escaped their families and we're looking for some great food and we found it. We were all dinner winners, not matter what we ordered we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The staff were fantastic making great suggestions as to our side dishes and kept the wine flowing. Would come back in a heartbeat.

We had a late-ish dinner here and the food and staff were fantastic. We were never rushed even though we were the last ones still eating. We loved the zucchini flower and soufflé entree. I had the pappardelle ragout which was amazing and my husband had the pork belly which he said was rich but just enough. Dessert was also... More

The restaurant came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. A lovely menu which took all of us a long time to decide what to have as everything sounded fabulous. The dishes lived up to the descriptions and were awesome as were the staff.

Dinner here with a colleague on a Thursday night. Great atmosphere in this quaint little restaurant. This place is a foodies delight. It's not a steak and chips restaurant, it's fancy food, done well. Plenty of food on the plate, beautifully cooked and presented. Service and menu advice was top notch, Wine menu extensive and advice provided. Very enjoyable.

It's been a long, long time since my husband and I went on a date where he organised the evening. Well he came up "trumps" by taking me to Loquat for a Saturday night dinner. The staff were friendly giving optimum service and the food was delicious. My husband and I both had the crispy barramundi and it was scrumptious.... More
