My Place

Soak up oceanfront views of Coolum Beach while sipping a cocktail created by some of the Sunshine Coast’s best mixologists at My Place on David Low Way. Whether enjoying balmy breezes on the deck with a tapas plate to share, or dining indoors where a myriad of dangling globes cast a soft glow over table settings and hanging cane baskets spill over with greenery, this is seaside dining at its best. Wander up from the sand and enjoy plates of rib eye chilli beef skewers to start or salt and pepper calamari; then delve into linguine marinara with fresh seafood tossed in olive oil, garlic, chilli and lemon juice. Perhaps lamb shoulder and rocket pizza hits the mark, with Spanish onion and tzatziki, or pick up a slice topped with Tiger prawns, marinated feta, basil and sun-dried tomatoes.

Bombay Bliss

Dinner with a view doesn’t get much better than Coolum Beach, and Bombay Bliss sure makes the most of it. Serving up legit Indian cuisine in a casual waterfront setting, here, fragrant curries are always made from scratch, while a hardworking tandoor oven pumps out pillowy naan bread and spiced up slow-cooked meats. You’ll find familiar favourites like chicken tikka masala and beef vindaloo that are perfect for sharing but don’t leave without trying house specialties including the moreish tandoori bites and Kashmiri Rogan Josh.
