We enjoyed a beautifully presented meal served by attentive and friendly staff. As it was a lovely evening, we sat outside and enjoyed overlooking the esplanade. Our meals were a generous portion and as it wasn't busy, served quickly.

Recently spent five day in Airlie Beach and we had dinner at La Tabella three times. The food is amazing, the Veal Scallopini was an absolute favourite with everyone and the Tiramisu was to die for, the lightest I have ever tasted.
