Cuisine: A La Carte, International
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Cellar Door on First is bringing a touch of dark glamour to sunny Sunshine Coast.

Get enveloped in the sultry atmosphere within. Utilising the dark materials of copper and bronze with touches of marble, the interior is seriously bougie. You’re going to want to spend a long time in its relaxed vibe; it’s perfect for a long dinner or a romantic supper for two.

Make it special from the get-go. Begin with scallop dumplings or try their exquisite jerk spiced quail before moving onto the main event. Indulge in their confit duck leg or a rich smoked lamb shoulder, prepared to lock in every ounce of flavour. All mains come with a choice of equally decadent sides.

As the name suggests, they know a thing or two about wine and the list covers an impressive four pages. Sourced from all over the world, there’s a bottle to suit every occasion. Alternatively, browse their comparatively succinct cocktail menu!

My Partner and I found Cellar door to be impeccable in both the service from the floor staff through to the innovative menu which was delicious. To top it all off the décor was smart and sophisticated, a really enjoyable evening.

Absolutely LOVED our dining experience at Cellar Door. The restaurant is very pretty and well set out. We sat outside which was a really nice setting. The staff were so friendly and so knowledgeable. And the food... AMAZING!! Each course was so beautifully constructed and presented and the flavours were amazing. Hands down one of the top dining experiences we've ever had.

The ambience of this restaurant is just stunning, it would be one of the best I have dined in. The food we had was innovative and delicious to eat. Potato bread was light and airy with a black sesame butter to start, followed by a chicken liver pate with raspberry jam (made in the restaurant) on light toast was delicious together with a Moreton Bay Bug which was very tasty. The mains were a beef rib which was served with a tasty fried rice and a special sauce which served two and a belly pork with specially fried crisp root vegetables, rice congee. The desserts were a Turkish delight bombe alaska and a chocolate torte with frangelico and orange and hazelnut. The service was very good with an explanation of every dish when they arrived by the staff. Drinks were filled continuously and there was no interruption to our conversation by the staff but the service was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to all with the proviso that the food is a little different to the norm but try it - you will be very surprised at how good it is.

It is so pleasing to find that this newcomer is reaching and exceeding the bar set by its sister establishment next door, Back Lane Bar & Tapas, a place we regularly haunt. Cellar Door is a classy restaurant, subdued lighting and thoroughly professional, yet warm and friendly staff. We ate here on a quiet Wednesday evening. We started with some lovely scallop dumplings with duck ham and a divine green tea dashi and a morton bay bug kiev. We had some lovely mains including pork belly with abalone, rice congee, sweet corn, pimentos & black bean, and, confit duck leg with duck lap cheong, sweet potato noodles, oyster mushrooms & yellow soy bean. Accompanied by a lovely rocket salad with. Loved the meal! We had a lovely night and will be doing Cellar Door again, with friends.

We were visitors to the area and were very impressed with the quality of food and service. My husband had the meat degustation meal which was outstanding, beautiful flavours and variety; I was able to share some of it so we were more than satisfied. Attention to detail was outstanding especially the floor service. Highly recommend for an equiste experience.

We have never dined at Cellar door before and wow what a surprise!
We had the 7course degustation with matching wines.
The wines were unique and many European wines on offer, which is a big difference to most restaurants on the coast.

The waitress was lovely and they even changed out one of the courses for us as we wanted to try the whole fried fish.

I can not fault this venue. Great food and great wine and very genourous servings.

This restaurant is stunning to walk into - the ambience is spectacular with the decor in hues of brown, black and gold. There is a substantial wine fridge at the rear side wall along with an extensive wine menu. There is also a substantial beer, soft drink and cocktail list.

The menu has a degustation menu; a paired degustation and then an extensive menu, with appetisers, entrees, mains, mains for two, and desserts. A children's menu is also available.

Two of the four of us ordered directly from the menu - potato rolls with sesame butter were absolutely delicious, we shared a crab tart - also spectacular. An entree of scallop dumplings with pink ginger and enoki mushrooms was also enjoyed. Two ordered the pork belly with alterations, both said it was delicious and the chef altered the advertised menu item to suit the customers. The other two ordered the Confit of Duck with Chinese duck sausage, sweet potato noodles and oyster mushrooms - again it was outstanding. For dessert we ordered their version of Bombe Alaska which was different and especially nice.

Would heartily recommend this restaurant to all - the best restaurant we have eaten at for many years.
