Highly-rated restaurant's shock and immediate closure

ONE OF Mooloolaba's most highly-rated restaurants has announced its shock and immediate closure.

Popular steakhouse Char Mooloolaba ceased trading on Saturday night.

The restaurant, which has been operating for five years, is located at a prime corner block on the Esplanade.

Tripadvisor, Good Food Guide and www.thefork.com all rate the restaurant highly.

On April 21, Char Mooloolaba posted the following on its Facebook page:

"Thank you one and all. It has been an honour and privilege to serve all our loyal customers and friends over the last five years.

"But Saturday the 27th of April will be the last trading day for Char Mooloolaba.

"It has been a fun ride, but our time has come to move on to our next big adventure.

"We will be trading as normal until then, so pop in and say your goodbyes."

This morning, the Daily hit the street to ask locals what should replace the restaurant.

"Some sort of nightclub for over 30s would be perfect in that space," Dasha Costin said.

"I'd like a Japanese, teppanyaki restaurant to go in, anything international would be great," Lisa Hayman said.

"I really like those fancy rooftop bars where you need to dress up for, it has the potential I think," Olivia Hunt said.
