A wonderful experience all round. The service was excellent and the owner chef visits the table and makes you feel like a VIP. A hidden treasure well worth seeking out!

I brought a group of 9 and everyone loved tbis place! A tucked away little gem right in the heart of Maleny with great food and friendly, attentive staff. We needed a bit of flexibility with our numbers and booking time. From the booking app it seemed that this wasn't possible, but a quick phone call to the venue sorted this out and they were happy to accommodate our needs. Thanks On Obi, we'll be back for sure!

The food was amazing so glad we chose to come here. Everything from the service to friendly staff and atmosphere was spot on. We were going to do the 3 course bit im so glad we went for the 2 course. The meals are very generous. We had the cauliflower soup and sweet potato chips followed by the slow roasted pork belly and lamb shank both with veg. Then finished with the vanilla creme brulee. Would highly reccomended On Obi to everyone and hope to go back again soon.

The service was incredible and the view was just breathtaking, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the owners were so kind and welcoming. It was the best experience I've had in a b&b it made you feel like high class and you were in pure luxury.

Delicious food, friendly staff, great atmosphere. They had a great personal touch when we told them it was our anniversary in our booking and they wrote "happy anniversary" in chocolate on the dessert that we ordered which was very sweet. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we would happily return.

We had a wonderful dinner, the Beef Carpaccio is excellent and melt in the mouth. Rib eye was perfectly cooked medium rare also melted in the mouth. Cream Brule was spot on the finish. Great service and attention to detail. Will definitely visit again.

Pomodoras is a hidden gem. We stayed at the cabins next door and had a wonderful stay but the food was the highlight. Great value for money and the flavours were absolutely brilliant. We will definitely be back just to dine at the restaurant and have told all our friends. Keep up the great food.

Thank you for a lovely evening. A constructive criticism. Our table service was initially attentive but as the evening progressed was less so. We understand we were at the last sitting and it was getting later but should have been consistent. Again thanks.

Food was ok - nothing special for the price. Dessert ice creams were good. Coffee was terrible. I guess $42 for a mediocre wine is par for the course at licensed restaurants. Appreciated that the music being played was subdued - allows for easier conversation.

The price was exorbitant in comparison to the quality and portion sizes of the food. If the meals were individually price, I doubt they would be able to justify their prices.

The big problem: The food could be good if the chef was not putting so many different flavors in one dish. Keep it simple and the food will be top. However the good service received bring the experience to OK.
