Extremely friendly service and staff who know the food and drinks menu very well. My partner and I were very impressed.

Love the Prosecco and Spritz fountain (well not so much this morning!). Great afternoon catch up with the girls.

Darling & Co Sparkling Springs package on a Sunday afternoon is a great idea but we took part in the first event and unfortunately, it still had a few kinks to iron out. Food offerings differed from the advertised menu and only one drinks point meant a long queue and constant interruptions because you had to leave the table to refill drinks.

There was a general lack of organisation in the place. The booking part was chaos with numerous phone calls to sort things out. If the booking had been made directly to the restaurant rather than going through a third party then it may have been okay. We sat at a table of 11 but they only served 1 platter to the hold table instead of doing a platter both ends to cover the whole table. Some more thought needs to go into dealing with larger tables. Food was okay but I wouldn't say value for money by any means.

Good atmosphere and service. Wine list needs to be extended a little though.

A strange and disappointing lunch experience. I booked as I saw a two- or three- course lunch special offer, including a drink. On arrival, waitress didn't seen to know of such offer, until showed the text on the Dimmi app. They would ask with kitchen if they could do the offer (some things like gnocchi with mushroom not on table menu), but took such time that I ended up just ordering steak frites, which was ok. On paying, was charged wrong (higher) price for steak, until menu price was pointed out. Strange parking arrangements, with need to pre-pay for anticipated time needed, then get refund off final bill. Summary: Nice steak, but venue really needs to get their act together.

Service was well below expectations. Only a few tables booked, but we had to get the unsmiling wattress’ attention each time we wanted to order. Food was nice, lovely wine - great location.

About Darling & Co

What a darling! Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner this little neighbourhood locale is such a little darling. Perfect for a midweek meal or for a special occasion we love Darling & Co’s diversity. Head chef Giuliano Melluso knows how to work his magic in the kitchen with the menu dipping into Asian, European and American cuisine. Starters such as Sunshine Coast yellowfin tuna tacos, banh mi pork belly sliders and Noosa spanner crab with watermelon, betel leaf, hibiscus and lemon are sure to impress. Each dish on the menu is a labour of love - and you can tell. You’ll never be lost in finding something to tickle your senses, one bite at a time. Best dish: chorizo & manchego croquettes with red pepper aioli
