Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar
Noosa Waterfront Restaurant and Bar is a private, free-standing waterfront venue offering unique and beautifully appointed wedding receptions. Boasting an approved council ceremony location right on their door step, with postcard perfect views and gourmet envied foods – this riverside wedding venue has alerted our attention, we caught up with their wedding and Events co-ordinator Amy, who gave us the full story on their wedding day style.
Tell us a little bit about your wedding co-ordination team and/or your role as the functions manager within the business.
My role as Wedding and Event manager at the Noosa Waterfront Restaurant is to showcase our tranquil riverside setting to couples who are searching for their dream wedding venue and help them visualise celebrating their special day here with us!
Once they have decided that we are the perfect fit for their wedding day celebrations, I personally work with them to ensure a seamless wedding day from start to finish. This begins with their initial enquiry and site visit through to securing their date, answering all the little questions along the way, helping them feel at ease with every aspect of their wedding planning journey and sitting down for a final wedding meeting to discuss all of the finer details. It’s also my job to make sure they are confident that we have everything covered, then leaving them to kick back, relax and enjoy their wedding day with friends, family and hubby/wife to be!
Where is your wedding venue located?
Share with us a few words to describe your wedding reception and its individual style.
The Noosa Waterfront Restaurant is tucked away in a private pocket of the Noosa river, there is a sprawling lawn adjacent to the restaurant which can be booked through the Noosa Council for your wedding ceremony which allows you to have both your wedding ceremony & reception all in the one location. We will entertain your guests with pre dinner drinks and canapes whilst you and your wedding tribe head off for afternoon photos, and of course keeping some canapes ready for your return. We have space for a dance floor and live entertainment, as well as space for a photo booth if you wish.

How would you describe your wedding menu offerings, and what style of food does your restaurant feature?
We are a modern Italian style restaurant and there are glimpses of traditional Italian dishes across our menu. Our food packages are varied and include an alternate drop menu, a short a la carte menu where your guests will choose their own meals on the day, we can custom design a degustation dinner and even pair this with matching wines, we can serve your meals on share platters for a family feast style menu and if a more casual experience is for you, we also offer a cocktail style menu. Beverages can be selected by set priced package or we can tailor a bar tab to give you the freedom to build a beverage list to suit your taste and budget.
Tell us about one of your most popular dishes, and why you love it so much!
The ‘Seared Pacific scallops, roasted glazed pork belly, Agrodolce sauce’ is our most popular entrée dish and it’s my favourite because it looks great on the plate, tastes absolutely delicious and would definitely be my pick if I was dining.
Fine food and beautiful wine becomes a large focus for many couples, tell us your food and wine story – what makes you different.
Hailing from Milan, Italy, the Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar is owned by the internationally trained and experienced Executive Chef, Andrea Ravezzani. Our menus are inspired by his Italian heritage and change seasonally honouring fresh and locally sourced produce where possible. Tantalising modern Italian cuisine is paired with award winning wines from Australia’s most bountiful regions and imported from Europe to complete a memorable experience.
Do you offer on-site accommodation?
No – however surrounding us is a large choice of accommodation options.
What tips would you give couples who are choosing a wedding venue who are overwhelmed with information and finding it hard to navigate their way through the details!
Sit down together with your favourite beverage (tea, wine, beer, cocktail – whatever makes your heart happy) review the places that are on your shortlist, and discuss how each place made you FEEL when you saw the space, or images if you cant view in person. If you both agree on the feeling of each venue and you both LOVED one particular place and it fits your budget and your style then you may have just found your dream venue!
