Had lovely dinner here on holiday, the steak was perfect. Went back for brunch the next day and had trouble choosing off the menu as so many good dishes to pick. Food was really lovely and staff friendly.

We are now regular visitors to Elliotts at Alex Headlands. Great for breakfast and coffee & cake. Service is very good too.
Some tables can get very hot in the morning sun, but Hey! you are at the beach.

We discovered this place via trip advisor and it had a number of good reviews. Dropped in for breakfast and we were not disappointed. Great food, coffee and service.
Best to book though as it gets very busy.

A repeat visit with friends

The food excellent as always, especially the pork belly but none of the dishes with the 'wow' factor we've experienced before.

It was Thursday night with the set menu (2 courses $35, 3 $45) available which suited all of us well. On being handed menus we were told the listed starter was no longer available but instead we were offered scallops which in fact were very good. However when a set menu lists only one choice it surely is to be expected that there will be enough available for everyone who orders it

Unlike other nights the service was slow, slow to the point of being unacceptable. Inside was full and two tables were taken outside which is normal for a Thursday night but we waited for just on 40 minutes before the first course was served. There was then a long delay before the main course was served then another long delay for the dessert which arrived at 9 pm (we arrived at 7).

No one likes to be rushed over a good meal but on this occasion the wait between courses was just too long. Perhaps Elliotts could consider offering a bread roll or some small nibbles if the serving of the starter is going to take more than half an hour.

These are small criticisms as Elliotts is still one of the best restaurants in this part of the Sunshine Coast. The food is always top class and the service by the two waitresses both pleasant and efficient.

Elliotts of course is basically a café but on the three nights it becomes a restaurant. While the food at Elliotts is well priced, when the cost of wine is added (a well chosen list, no BYO), the total cost is nearing the upper end of the range which an established restaurant charges. Patrons therefore have a right to expect the type of dining experience associated with such establishments.

We look forward to our next visit.

Friendly fast service and beautiful breakfasts! We had croquets with poached eggs and bacon and field mushrooms with herbed scrambled eggs! Couldn't fault it! We will be back soon!
