Enjoy incredible cuisine and wine at these BYO spots

Noosa is well known for its fine cuisine and laid-back atmosphere. What better place to take in both aspects of Noosa than at a fantastic restaurant enjoying your own bottle of red wine. BYO restaurants are wildly popular among both the money-conscious, and the wine-connoisseurs, as they offer a freedom that you normally don’t get to enjoy. We’ve found the best restaurants in beautiful Noosa that let you bring your own wine to sip alongside some sublime cuisine. Check out our recommendations below for some truly mouth-watering food, and then pack your bags (and wine) to take along with you!

La Vida Restaurant is situated along the bustling Hastings Street in Noosa Heads. To match its prime location, this restaurant serves up modern Australian dishes and fresh seafood to enjoy while visiting this beachside location. Stop in for a late breakfast, lunch or dinner to try some of their one-of-a-kind dishes. Their menu offers up a huge variety of meals including tapas plates, pasta and an all-day breakfast, so no matter what time of the day you visit, you’ll be treated to something delicious.

For dinner, sit down to a seafood platter for two with whole crab, grilled Moreton Bay bug, natural and Kilpatrick oysters, seared barramundi, grilled cuttlefish, prawns, marinated baby octopus, crumbed calamari and house-made dipping sauces. This will go perfectly with that bottle of crisp white you’ve been waiting to save for the right occasion – and what better occasion than some delectable, local seafood? Stop by La Vida Restaurant for superb BYO dining in the very heart of Noosa.

Jardin Japonesque is a Japanese-inspired restaurant, serving up set menus and share plates of their tasty cuisine. Stop by for dinner from Tuesday through to Saturday, and don’t forget your favourite bottle of red or white! Choose to dine alfresco, or inside the beautifully decorated restaurant adorned with antique crockery and plants for a tranquil environment.

With only a $3 surcharge per person for BYO corkage, you can enjoy a smooth glass of your own red alongside the share-style a la carte menu. Pick from Tasmania free-range beef tataki, eggplant dengaku or lamb gyoza to name a few dishes that will suit that pinot noir perfectly. If you prefer your sparkling instead of a smooth red, order the Mooloolaba tuna sashimi along with some fresh mixed sushi rolls that will complement your drink perfectly.

Is there any better pairing than fine Italian cuisine coupled with a glass of Shiraz? If your answer is “no, of course not,” then don’t walk past Pasta Pronto in Noosa. Loved by locals for their fresh, homemade pasta and other traditional Italian meals, you can’t miss out on visiting this gem when you’re in Noosa next.

For a starter, why not order an antipasti plate, perfect for sharing between two people. Mains vary from fresh seafood dishes, to traditional pasta and gourmet pizzas. We recommend trying the favourite Quadrucci – fresh parsley pasta sheets tossed with caremelised bacon, sundried tomato, capsicum, shallots and cream. This dish has people hooked with its moreish flavours and fresh herbs. Last but not least, indulge in a plate of one of their creamy desserts alongside your favourite dessert wine for a truly incredible night out. This is definitely a favourite for everyone who visits, and one that can’t be missed this trip to Noosa!
