About the restaurant
Here at Humble on Duke we are all about good honest food, fantastic Australian wine and great service.
We are an intimate venue with one chef serving Modern Australian with flavours and spices from the Middle East & Mediterranean. If you are here for a quick meal, that's not us, we are not just a vehicle for food but a dining experience so allow 2hrs-2.5 hours to dine with us.
Our menu designed by Stacey Conner showcases fresh & local produce from around Noosa and up the Queensland coast.

We are a small intimate venue, so book ahead to avoid disappointment.
You can dine on either of our share menus which will consist of a range of snacks, a large dish to share with your choice of add-ons.

We take groups of up to 6 guests & children dine on the same menu at the same cost, we do this so that you get the experience you deserve and other guests in our tiny home can also enjoy themselves. If you would like to enquire about a group larger than 6 please email info@humbleonduke.com.au.

We have been twice to Humble on Duke - visiting from interstate. The food is always delicious and the service is so personalised and attentive. It feels like you’ve come to your old friend’s home and they can really cook and they love beautiful wine! It is a real find. Highly recommended.

About the restaurant
European Bar & Restaurant

Specialises in honest and uncomplicated European cuisine done well, Belgian beers, European wines, classic and house made cocktails.

Chef Alex Hughes honours our European traditions whilst celebrating the beautiful premium local produce that the Sunshine Coast has to offer.

"The interior alone is timeless, effortlessly sexy and does a fine job of solidifying this place as somewhere you’ll totally want to hang out. Basically, if we were to rate this place on the atmosphere alone, we’d be dishing up a big, fat 10."

Being a local resident in Yandina I took a friend to Bar Deco for dinner, her first visit. The food was amazing, a taste sensation, and reasonably priced. The staff always make you feel extremely welcome and special and are very knowledgeable about the menu and wines and happy to recommend. The atmosphere is always cozy and conversation is easy. Even better when there is music / entertainment, but sometimes a quiet night out is very relaxing. Thanks Bar Deco, I will be back often.

We sat at an outdoor table, so the noise was ambient street noise. Not loud at all. Food and service were both sensational. We shared the bruschetta which included a champagne sorbet. The bruschetta was delicious, and the addition of the champagne sorbet was inspired. A lovely juxtaposition of tastes. Then I had the gnocchi and my mum had the vegetarian tortellini. Both were exceptional. Our waiter was attentive and friendly without hovering or being annoying. My first time at this restaurant and I was very impressed. For me it is up market - above my usual standard for sure. And it lived up to it. I'll be back.

Been to this restaurant many times over the years , the foods always great & being an ex 5 star hotel chef for 10 years I'm really critical of my dining experiences...😆 Restaurant was a bit noisy with all the ladies jabbering away . The service was quiet good , but our table was too close to the neighbors & I sat next to my lady instead of opposite putting my drink on the next door to close table where the waiter said not to make a mess as those patrons were in the bar & coming soon 😳 😆..they never showed . The wine prices were a bit pricy , but I know that most of the profits are derived from the drinks , some of the food like the veggies dishes were wax over the top on price I thought. Other than that in was a very enjoyable night ...it's always hard to find really good food on the Sunshine Coast so we'll done ✔️

A bunch of us gathered for a weekday lunch expecting something a bit different and we weren’t let down. The food was tasty, the huge selection of German beers was excellent and the ambience made our group lunch date a great event. The two staff on duty looked to be a bit stretched trying to take orders, serve the food and run the bar but did a fantastic job. I reckon we’ll be back for sure.
