We enjoyed our visit at the hotel. What we ordered was very well received and enjoyable. The service was excellent and would highly recommend this hotel for dinner.

The hotel has a great feel, however I had the special pizza and it tastes like a supermarket frozen pizza, really disappoininting as it was advertised as a wood fire pizza, I just expected a better dough. Others had streaks and said that they were lovely and the fish and chips were the dish of the day for our table.

We went to the Rainbow Beach Hotel today and had the barramundi, which was massive, delicious and the best we have had for ages. The other thing is you don't get good different salads now, just lettuce and tomato, but a salad with watercress in it was great. Thank you, well worth the drive from Noosa.

We ate there a few nights and all our meals were pretty good. My Partner said his steak was one of the best he's had in a while. The special made for some cheap dinning options. All in all.....a good experience. AND the beers were COLD!

Good place to eat, not expensive and good menu. Nicely appointed and has outside dining which is good if big party like ours. Fresh air and good breezes. Right next door to Plantation Resort.

Average service, great location, the menu offers all of the usual hotel dishes, nothing too exciting. Centrally located and the prices are pretty standard too.

The RBH is located in the centre of town. The meals are nice , but on the dear side. Drinks are also not cheap. The bar service was below average with different prices each time for the same drinks and they got them wrong often. Saturday night the pool table and outdoor area closed down at 10pm - not really...

Dining area is set out well - unlike other places, the tables aren't all on top of each other to try and fit as many people in as possible. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
