Mr Bones Pizza Bar boasts being one of the best tapas bar and restaurants in Airlie Beach. Unlike anything you have ever tasted, this venue has a cult following and you will know why when you see the menu. They say that good things come in small packages and this couldn’t be any more true with the culinary delights on the list such as balsamic marinated lamb skewers and prawn pizza.
