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."

About the restaurant
Tucked down a laneway, housed in an industrial building, you'll find our quirky pizzeria. Our vibe is super casual and we love to see our customers sharing pizzas, beers and enjoying life. Our space is ideal for large groups, but also for families and couples.

Were all about the pizza! Pizza Napoletana is authentic pizza from Naples, and we make it according to the generations-old technique....with just a little of our own twists here and there. Our dough is made in-house and fermented for a minimum of 24hrs to create a tasty and light base - minimal yeast so no bloating here. Then its hand-stretched, topped with quality ingredients imported from Italy AND sourced locally, and cooked at a fiery 400 degrees.

We do other stuff as well - starters, sharers, salads, homemade desserts, and gelato. Plus cocktails, imported and locally brewed beers, and some carefully selected wines from independent wineries.

Casita wine bar is a lovely, romantic bar with a warm feeling. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. There is a great drinks menu and the food offerings pair nicley. It is only a small venue and my only criticism would be that it was a little tight between tables. Great place for a date with that special someone.

The food and pizzas are absolutely delicious. The staff are so lovely . The atmosphere cool and vibey . My only gripe . The prices of the bottled wine starting at $70 . Not a single bottle in the $50 range . I would go back in a heartbeat for food and service but not for drinks .

I have now been 3 times to Tziki and twice within the 3-5pm locals happy hour. I find it annoying that they don't advertise as a menu what is included in the happy hour and the prices. They have menus for everything else so why not for this?

About the restaurant
Mouth watering smoked Waygu brisket that brings friends together to have a yarn, lamb shoulder that melts off your fork and craft beers to wash it all down. Situated opposite the stunning Mooloolaba Beach, tucked away down a side street, you will be transported to an urban alleyway restaurant, boasting bold flavours, slow cook meats, fine whiskeys and local craft beers.

Great place to eat but the barmaid got my son’s drink wrong. Asked for Gin & Cola, got Bourbon & Cola. Otherwise no complaints. Will definitely return at some time.
