Where to eat in Airlie Beach

You can eat well in the Whitsunday town.

Many visitors come to Airlie Beach as the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. But the town is a great foodie destination in its own right.


Located right on the coast, it makes sense that Airlie would have some great seafood restaurants.

Fish D’vine is a well known stalwart of the dining scene. Choose from dishes like tempura battered tiger prawns, Thai style fish curry and locally caught Barramundi. For drinks, you can choose from a selection of over 560 rums.


Sometimes you just want a good burger, and Little Vegas Burger delivers. Try their cheeseburger spring rolls, Wagyu beef and blue cheese burger and hot chips.

Bonus: it’s open until late.

Fine dining

Head to Hemingway’s Airlie Beach to enjoy the plantation-style decor paired with seasonal dishes.

Start your meal with some fresh oysters and wine while you enjoy the sea view. Move on to dishes like spanner crab pasta with tomatoes, lemon, garlic, chilli and parsley, or market fish with lime and dill pea puree, mixed grains, clams and fennel crisps.


The Fat Frog Beach Cafe is the perfect spot for a laidback breakfast or dinner. Start the day off with their Campos coffee. Then enjoy delicious breakfast dishes like pumpkin frittata or dukkah poached eggs.
