Fresh, tasty seafood is widely available in Mooloolaba. I don’t think there’s a better way to end the day than with a nice big bowl of Mooloolaba Prawns and a crisp glass of white wine. Mooloolaba Prawns are a good looking crustacean and are bigger, richer and stronger than other prawns. If you don’t fancy seafood then there’s plenty of other options including Italian, Thai, Japanese and more Mooloolaba Restaurants.
