From humble beginnings many years ago, Beppi’s remains an ageless and enduring institution, where iconic Chef Joe Camilleri continues to deliver well-known classic dishes effortlessly.
Oozing rustic Italian charm, with tables dressed in crisp white tablecloths, the dining room evokes an air of gentle timelessness. Soft lighting completes the cosy feel. Service is provided by professional, attentive Italian wait staff, just like in the old days.
The no-fuss menu includes many favourites that have withstood the test of time. Plump whitebait fritters, so fresh that they seem to be swimming across the plate, are topped with potato shavings and a tartar sauce on the side. A crowd-pleasing main, Mooloolaba king prawns, marinated in chilli and garlic, are simply grilled in their shell and served with a side of lemon and salsa verde. Carnivores are well catered for with an array of dishes including the ever-popular Macleay River lamb rump, roasted to perfect pinkness and served on a pumpkin mash.
PSST! For the wine connoisseur, a selection of premium wines is available by the glass, including Château d’Yquem.
