PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Hastings Street is known as one of the most expensive areas to rent in Australia therefore, as a result, many newer restaurants are opening in Noosaville – just along from Noosa Heads; through Noosa Sound, over the Noosa Bridge and nestling along the Noosa River. With much more of a village atmosphere, Noosaville already has an array of restaurants, cafes, bars but there are also plenty of opportunities for genuine retail therapy. I have always liked the River Cottage Restaurant. It's an old Queensland Cottage – not too big, but open, spacious and elegant. The menu is an interesting read. One of the complaints I have about dining in Noosa in general, is that there is sameness about all the menus. Many play the "safe" option and give the customer what they think they want as opposed to being individually creative and making "dining out" more of an adventure. The River Cottage menu makes for difficult decision making. I really enjoyed the entrée of pressed smoked duck confit with a foie gras and a pungent onion chutney that cut through the richness of the dish. I have to say, the only negative about this dish was that the portion size was too large for my liking. Foolishly, I ordered a sensational rib eye for my main. Cut off the bone and served with a mushroom and speck tartlet, the steak was cooked to perfection (rare) with a salty, crunchy crust enclosing a melt-in-your-mouth meat sensation. Barb really enjoyed her gnocchi with white asparagus, chantarelles and broad beans tossed in a truffled tomato sauce. Overall, a really wonderful dining experience.
