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!

Great selection of good quality wine. Classy service, above average. Interesting and difference food combinations made the meal very special. Upper end for price but similar to like places on the coast.

My partner & I were really looking forward to dine at ''Cellar Door on First'' as we've heard such great comments!
We both decided to go with the 7 course meal and was so hoping to be impressed by it all!
Being in the hospitality myself, as a Chef, I can easily state that ALL 7 courses were wonderful from start to finish!
So many great flavors combined together, all perfectly cooked and presented, unusual mix of items on the dishes but so well thought! Congratulations to the Chef, I was very impressed!
This is fine dining, with reasonable portions and price!
Our waiter was very attentive to our requests and really looked after us the whole evening - we really appreciated it!
Unfortunately, we could not try many of the beautiful wines offered as it was a school night (Tuesday) but a quick look at the wine list confirmed me that it is also very well thought!
We will definitely be coming back very soon and spread the word about this superb venue!

Class all the way. Can not fault anything. Service was as a fine dining restaurant should be and is a rare treasure on the Coast to find. Great wine selection and innovative food. No complaints here and will reccomend to everyone who is after a fine dining experience with flair. Will happily return. Thanks for the wonderful night and keep up the great work.

Service was impeccable. Could not do enough for us. Food was great except for one item. We ordered a side serve of thrice cooked chips thinking they would be crispy on the outside. We received beautiful flavoured Soggy chips. It may be my misunderstanding of the dish but have never had this before and thought to try. If this is how they are suppose to be will not be ordering this dish again. I am also one of the few people who cannot abide coriander. Our fish dish was changed by the chef so that I could have this main meal. It was beautiful. Husband adored the desert. Many thanks Cellar Door - 4 stars due to the chips but will definitely be back again minus ordering soggy chips.

Amazing food creations. We had the 7 course degustation. Every course was delicious and beautifully presented. Who would have thought that passion fruit and chilli sorbet in our cocktail could be so amazing. This is now our new favourite place and we will be back to try more of their imaginative menu.

From the moment we walked inside we felt welcome. Staff were friendly and took good care of us and our baby. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced, with highlights including scallops and whole baked fish with papaya salad. The drinks list also had some local favourites. We'll definitely return.

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.
