Little Cooly - Restaurant

Here at Little Cooly the team are all about slinging pasta, pinot and playful vibes with impressive coastal views. Spend your day surfing or on the beach then swap the sand for a seat in our pizza pasta bar overlooking the stunning Coolangatta Beach.

Whether it’s date night, catching up with mates or mustering the family for that long-overdue lunch, their friendly, laidback staff will make you feel at home.

From their prime spot at Level 1, The Strand at Coolangatta, the kitchen pumps out house-made pizza and pasta, seven days a week, with a distinctive southern GC twist.

Some people say pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza, but we respectfully disagree. That’s why you’ll find the perfect mix of local Bangalow pork, pineapple, feta and charred corn on our Queenslander pizza. As an ode to the local area, find fresh Tweed River prawns, mango, cashews and avo on the Snapper Rocks pizza, which is ‘shore’ to be a crowd fave.

There’s a kids’ menu for little nippers and for big kids we have the most affordable and extensive wine list found on the Coast. But if you want to pair that pasta with something a little cooler, take a gander at our banging cocktail list stacked with signature sips, Cooly classics and even a section dedicated to your favourite long lunch accompaniment – the spritzer.
