Mission Beach Dining

Although your Mission Beach hotel or resort may have a fabulous restaurant you might like to venture out for breakfast, lunch or dinner to explore the local cuisine somewhere else in Mission Beach.

You may also just be sick of doing all the cooking in your self contained holiday apartment and being left with the dishes.

Mission Beach offers beachfront restaurants and cafes, bars and fun venues on the Village Green and the Promenade.

A number of these dining venues offer a courtesy bus service to ensure patrons do not drink and drive.

Just ask for more information on this when you make your booking.

Mission Beach restaurants are open all year round and cater for the budget conscious backpacker to the galloping gourmet aficiendo and everyone in between.

Mission Beach is a typical casually relaxed beachside holiday destination so dressing up for dinner is not expected. Just bring along your resort casuals and a pair of flat shoes or ones with a little heel.
