My favourite dish is sea food Chowder and my favourite sea food restaurant had it on and it certainly did not disappoint. Magnificent taste and jam packed with prawns, scallops, fish and a bug thrown in for good measure. I struggled to finish it as...it was so big , but I did it although my wife couldn’t quite get the job done. Neil just keeps the great meals coming and if you’re in Maroochydore you simply have to book a table.More

Excellent. Best steak we have ever eaten when dining out. Food was so fresh, service was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent. Amazing value for money. The teenagers were even impressed!!

Went to Maisie's for lunch - appalling ! May have had an excellent reputation in the past but clearly it is not valid now ! Tasteless food and overpriced. And the service was ordinary too ! If I go to a "white table cloth, good...silver" restaurant making the effort to dress up, I don't expect the front of house staff to be serving me wearing gym attire ! Restaurant was nearly empty so I think the writing is on the wall for this has-been - went to Red Sea at Maroochy for dinner - clearly the best seafood restaurant on the Sunny Coast by a long way - restaurant was full of satisfied clients ! Excellent food, good value and wonderful service ! I know where I'll be going in future ! A big "Thank You" to everyone at Red Sea for a fabulous night !!More

Excellent lunch; outside in the sunshine on a lovely day. Really good piece of Orange Roughy beautifully cooked. Seafood platter for my companion - beautifully served. Always happy to return to this happy little restaurant: great service, well presented food and very good value.

We were very surprised and pleased by the food and service at this restaurant. Visiting Marcoola, we looked for a seafood place to have lunch and read about Red Sea Restaurant online. When we arrived, admittedly on the outside it didn't look like what we...were expecting especially because of the food pics we had seen. When we booked, we were told there was only a seat indoors, which was fine. Two of us decided to order the $80 platter for two and when we explained dietary requirements to the staff, they did not hesitate to enusre the platter was changed to suit! We ordered another dish of whiting and when the food came out, we wish we hadn't because the servings are bigger than expected!! The platter was worth the money and after ordering a few drinks with lunch, we were surprised by the total cost of the meal - definitely value for money. The staff service was impeccable and very accommodating. We are so grateful we didn't judge the outside before trying the food. The chef came out a couple of times and spoke to almost every table, checking in with everyone. It was really nice to see and to find out this is a family-run restaurant, made us feel even better knowing that we could spend our time and money here. Definitely recommend this to locals and visitors!! If we're back in town again, will without a doubt come back for more! Maybe even a slice of the lemon meringue pie I never thought to take away after I left today.More

We have been to the Red Sea Restaurant a number of times and have never been disappointed. Breakfast, lunch, dinner it doesn't matter, you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food, the service, the friendly staff and the very reasonable prices. If...you go for dinner try the seafood, just sensational. By the way, don't each much before you go. The meals are big, fresh, and perfectly cooked. A must visit in Maroochydore.More

We were told this place has great food. We booked in and when we arrived we were given the table with a heater. Our meals were both tasty and well sized. I had the steak with prawns and sauce. I ordered my steak on the...rare side of medium but it did come a little on the other side of medium but it was a nice steak otherwise. Others ordered the platter for one and fish. The fish was also a bit over cooked and thinner sections were dry but again it was still great feed. Staff were friendly and enthusiastic. We would com back again.More

The best thing to do is to contact the owner who is on site. Neil is always helpful. Cross contamination, I doubt it. We never had any problems. Neil also has a comprehensive menu and will also assist with any changes you... More
