Only whisper the word sashimi here - perimeter tables in this beautiful, light-dappled room perch over the water. Watch the fish shoals dart in the Noosa River as diligent wait-staff shave fresh wasabi to complement those sculpted slices of cuttlefish, scallop, tuna and more arrayed prettily on your moriawase plate. Attention to detail is palpable, from handmade ceramics to a cleverly compiled wine list, the art and a rollcall of produce from the restaurant's farm. Grimaud duck breast, grilled pink over charcoal, arrives atop a savoury kayaku rice, alongside a tangle of herbs, flowers and tonburi (aka land caviar). It's light but flavour-packed - a recurring theme. Desserts meld east, west and a range of contrasts, such as the warm, crisp-battered tempura figs served with a pleasantly mouth-numbing scatter of sansho pepper, yuzu sugar and yuzu ice-cream, or a sake-infused custard with peach-blossom jelly.
