A group of ten had lunch to celebrate s friend's citizenship. As it was a late booking it was the only one who'd take a large group. The chairs need recovering as they're shabby.The food was good but not spectacular and we had a long wait .

We took a group of 8 people to the One Up Bar & Bistro for a farewell dinner. We had reservations and our table was waiting for us when we arrived. The atmosphere was casual and there were a number of large groups having a good time. There are large windows at one end that provide great views of the... More

Booked for a group of girls for the view and we were blown away by the delicious food- shared plates of Asian tapas?!! Highly recommend this spot for lunch.

Spent several hours here, and must say the magnificent views from the large open windows was only exceeded by the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the meals. This is a must do when in Mooloolaba.

We recently booked a small family function here. The staff were great and so helpful with organising the event and on the day as well. Our group LOVED all the food, the service was friendly and the location is the BEST in Mooloolaba.

I really enjoyed my visit, view is fabulous, great food, enjoyed the music and atmosphere, service was quick and very friendly. The only negative I have is the initial appearance due to the chairs at the lower tables! Thanks

Was a bit dubious about this place as the sign at the bottom of the stairs and the stairwell are a bit dodgy but once we got upstairs it was lovely. Tables by the window offer a sensational view. The bar was a little understaffed but the staff were friendly. Tapas was absolutely delicious- especially the scallops which were some... More
