About Sorrento Restaurant & Bar

Experience the splendour of the Whitsundays at Sorrento Restaurant & Bar on Shingley Drive in Airlie Beach.

From a diverse selection ranging from salads to gourmet pizzas, opt for starters like seared prawns and scallops, with rosé sauce, rocket salad and toasted bread; before delving into mains of eye fillet, seasonal vegetables, garlic mash and red wine jus, or chicken supreme, twice-cooked baby potatoes, roast vegetables and creamy herb sauce.

I went here on Friday and was blown away by the exceptional food and the endless view. We had the most amazing platter that was full of fresh seafood, meats & cheeses, it was so big we couldnt finish it. And that view... Where to start water water water


A little bit off the beaten tourist trail, 'Sorrento's' is arguably the best bar in Airlie Beach to watch the sun go down. Located in the old Abel Point Marina complex, its two levels (upstairs restaurant, downstairs bar) overlook yachts in the marina, and to the west & north of Airlie Bay. Inhabited by lots of personable characters off cruising yachts, young dockyard labourers and other marine-oriented salt-encrusted individuals, the bar can get quiet busy. Upstairs is often very quiet, despite the excellent food and wine. Parking is a problem – there just isn't any ! But most locals going there for several 'sun-downers' and a meal, go by taxi - it is safer and more relaxing. Of course the yachties just stagger back to their boats – 'Sorrentos' has that effect on people.


Friendly staff, fantastic pasta. We will come again.
