Airlie Beach Restaurant Review
With wonderful eating experiences available to our visitors to Airlie Beach we’d like to mention the great menu variety and friendly service you will find when you visit the Sidewalk Cafe Restaurant and Bar.
Situated at 1A the Esplanade Airlie Beach, they do serve the best coffee and Breakfast menu in town, while offering a Cosmopolitan experience with a choice of inside or alfresco dining 7 days a week.
Everything from gourmet burgers, sandwiches to pastas, salads and a large variety of meat dishes Sidewalk Cafe is also fully licensed for those who enjoy a long cool drink while gazing across the Coral Sea and the Islands.
All this and situated only a 3 minute walk down the hill from Mediterranean Resort which offers great Airlie Beach accommodation. Be sure to remind us to give you a 10% discount voucher available for our guests when eating at the Sidewalk Cafe.
Iif you are really into music, and who isn’t, the choice here in Airlie Beach 7 nights a week is truly extraordinary. Too many places to mention however last week we checked out KC’s Bar and Grill in Airlie Beach and found fabulous food and excellent live entertainment for our enjoyment.
Situated at 382 Shute Harbour Road, Airlie Beach again only a couple of minutes walk from the Mediterranean Resorts.
Lots of good 60′s, 70′s and 80′s with plenty of current material and originals all played at a level where you could still talk to your friends and appreciate the quality and ability of the musicians playing.
One venue not to be missed and remember don’t sit in the cold shivering come to Airlie Beach and we’ll look after you. That’s a promise.

Airlie Beach Restaurant Review
Each month I will explore with you some of the wonderful eating experiences available to you here in Airlie Beach Whitsundays and showcase a particular Restaurant I honestly believe will delight you.
Quite recently we had the absolute pleasure of spending an entire evening dining at
“Alain’s Restaurant” tucked away on the Coral Esplanade Airlie Beach (07 4946 5464). I say entire evening because this dining experience offers not only intimate European Dining (French and International Cuisine), but specialises in a 5 Course Menu that is perfectly balanced in flavours and the timing of each course. Typically you would arrive at 7.30 – 8pm for a 3 to 4 hour absolutely unique dining experience. I would consider this a must when visiting Airlie Beach. Bookings are essential.
Please see below a typical example of a 5 Course Menu but click here to see more of this beautiful French inspired menu.
Homemade Bread Roll Homemade Bread Roll
Coquille St Jacques Crevettes Au Pastis
Souffle AU Fromage E Caviar Pate du Chef
Escargots De France Oysters Au Naturel
Sorbet Au Champagne Sorbet Au Champagne
Tournedos Forestiere Fillet of Boeuf Au Poivre
Coral Trout Sauce Champagne Saumon Beurre Blanc
Mediteranean Chicken Roulade Prawns in Love
Chocolate Mousse Au Grand Marnier Ice Dreams in Chocolate Basket
Creme Caramel Al’Orange Et Whiskey Strawberry Pancake and Chocolate Sorbet
Then more than likely the French Chef will come over to your table, have a chat and offer you a complimentary after dinner liqueur. The perfect evening and an experience you won’t forget.
By the way, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for that someone special, keepsake or just want to spoil yourself with some personal retail therapy, do not leave your visit to Airlie Beach Whitsundays without taking a short trip to our neighbouring town of Proserpine, where you’ll find the most unique gift store called ‘Colour Me Crazy’ (2B Dobbins Lane, Proserpine) open 7 days.
This store has a fabulous array of Jewels, Handmade Treasures, Unusual Textiles and Linens, Australian Art Pieces, Things of Stone and Wood, Exquisite Mirrors, Mobiles, Mosaics and more…This place is truly a Treasure in the heart of Proserpine and is like taking a journey to another world.
Whatever you do don’t miss it and make it part of your ‘must see’ things when visiting us here in Airlie Beach.
On the music scene ‘Magnums’ here in the main street of Airlie continues to grow in popularity with local, interstate and overseas artists providing live music into the early hours of the morning. Rock bands, Duos, and unique solo artists are all part of the line up set to entertain you during your visit.
There are at least half a dozen venues throughout Airlie Beach, all offering live music on various nights of the week and most of them are within easy walking distance from Mediterranean Resorts.
I guess I could go on forever about the activities and experiences all waiting for you when you come to visit us.
Remember, no need to shiver in the cold or wonder how to brighten up your day.
Come and visit us here at Mediterranean Resorts Airlie Beach Whitsundays and we’ll look after you as our special guests.
Talk with you next month,
Robert, Lea and Rhianon.
Airlie Beach has the well-deserved reputation as the jump-off point to the Whitsundays, such as Daydream Island, Long Island and the Molle island group, but there are also attractions that can keep you land-based and at a happy distance from the magical Whitsunday Islands.
Why not book your accommodation with us at Mediterranean Resorts as your base to launch your holiday activities. We have secure parking facilities for guests to lock and leave their vehicles on overnight activities or longer.
Conway State Forest and Peninsular Activities
The Whitsunday Great Walk is an enjoyable three day stroll through the lush rainforest of Conway Park Forest which some travel writers have well noted, is not in the Whitsundays, although the islands are rarely far from view.
The walk consists of a 30 kilometer stretch of the Conway State Forest, from Brandy Creek to Airlie Beach. The Great Walk at a leisurely pace takes three-days to hike through. The Whitsundays themselves are visible from many points on the trail (including the summit of Mount Hayward), and there’s always the chance of spotting an orange-footed scrub fowl or a wompoo fruit dove closer to hand. Shorter side walks can be attempted if time is pressing, but if you do plan on the full three days, it’s essential to book places at the camp sites (where toilets and drinking water are provided).
For a hinterland experience in the “Airlie backyard” the forested gullies of the Conway Peninsula are an inland idyll for holiday makers.
Spread out over 22,500 hectares of the Conway Peninsula, this beautiful swatch of lowland rainforest is traditionally home to the Gia and Ngaro tribes. The landscape of hoop pines, rocky outcrops and lush gullies is geographically similar, if not identical to those found on the Whitsundays themselves. The islands were cut off from the peninsula by rising sea levels as recently as 10,000 years ago. While there are a few local wildlife species to be wary of including scrub mites, red-bellied blacksnakes and stinging trees (no hugging!), the park is ideal for a leisurely day’s exploration. Camping permits are required and fishing is permitted from the beach.
Return to The Mediterranean Resort ,the welcome of clean sheets, refreshing spa baths and luxury environs. We can take care of your activity bookings and help you plan your holiday itinerary in the Whitsundays offshore and onshore. Give us a call now, or enquire here.
