About the restaurant
Winner of the AGFG Peoples Choice Award 2019, Dining on the Deck is a truly special place, situated in the rainforest on the shores of Lake Baroon with panoramic views of the water, mountains and rainforest.
This intimate connection with nature is enhanced by the incredible food that is prepared in house by our talented team of chefs.

This was my 2nd time here & took my MIL & hubby for their 1st time. Was looking forward to their seafood pasta but sadly wasn’t on menu. The service was pretty good considering they were busy. And couldn’t thank them enough for providing blankets as we were seated on the deck & strong breeze about. Definitely a must visit venue. Be a wonderful place for a larger celebration too. Lots of options.

Nice location, hidden in the suburbs and backs onto bushland. Friendly staff and good service. Accommodating for infants, we had our 6 and half month old with us and needed a high chair. They made sure there was one available for us. Tasty food and overall good value for money. We will be going back again.

About the restaurant
Montana's on Buderim is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch

Enjoy a gourmet breakfast or indulge with a lazy weekend brunch. Taste our locally roasted, barista made coffee or enjoy our wide variety of juices, smoothies and herbal teas.

We may be a coffee hub in the morning, but Montanas transforms into a fully licensed, long lunch venue, serving up an impressive menu, loaded with flavoursome curries, local seafood & indulgent burgers, as well as a range of tasty, daily chef specials.

We also love to do a little puppy pampering, with homemade pup biscuits and puppychinos on the menu. We like to cater for the whole family!

About the restaurant
Passion for food and love of all things Italian is what inspired Basil & Vine Café.
The Fargnoli family believe food is central to our Italian way of life and large family meals are customary in our household - Meals are relaxed affairs enjoying each other’s company and the sense of community.
Traditionally Italian dishes are made with simple ingredients that can be made or procured inexpensively such as pasta, bread, cheese, olive oil and tomatoes. Italian cuisine is all about using quality ingredients well and not so much about fancy cooking techniques.
