Flux is a lively tapas lounge on the main Gympie Terrace strip of Noosaville overlooking the Noosa River. We were lucky to get a table and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
The wine list was high quality and we chose a ‘Not Your Grandma’s’ Eden Valley Riesling which was bright, zesty and delicious.
All of the tapas looked really tempting, and we chose the following:
Prawn and Crab Spring Rolls with green chilli and lime dipping sauce. I thought the sauce was a little sharp, but the spring rolls were perfect.
Blue cheese button mushrooms with parmesan and thyme breadcrumbs, which were lovely – a nice balance of salty piquant cheese with the softness of the mushroom and the crunch of the cheesy herby breadcrumbs.
Fennel and gin cured salmon with watercress, onion, orange salad, pineapple vinegar foam, lemon oil and lavosh crackers. This was a dish where everything on the plate added to the overall sensation, a lovely fresh dish, and the pineapple foam was wonderful.
Cajun soft shell crab with wasabi mayonnaise, pickled cabbage and herb salad. A lovely tasty, crunchy triumph of a dish – again with flavours that matched so nicely.
We enjoyed everything so much that we ordered a fifth dish of seared scallop with creamed leek puree, crispy chorizo, toasted almonds and microherbs. This was a mixture of classic flavours – the sweet scallop, the spicy chorizo, the nice leek background flavour and the crunch of the almonds. Delicious.
Flux is definitely a top quality venue and the prices were reasonable too. When I am back in Noosaville this will be my first choice of dinner venue. Every plate was excellent.
