Meet The Chef

Introducing CootharaBAR & Bistro Noosa Head Chef – Jason Larsen.

Chef Larsen’s humble journey began with food in 1988, where he went on to become an Executive Chef at the prestigious Leeuwin Estate for over 10 years. He transitioned to running his own restaurant in the Hunter Valley for 4 years, before catering numerous events/festivals with his famous “Empanadas” a popular South American street food. Chef’s journey eventually brought him to Noosa – where he spent a number of years at Australia’s most prestigious fine dining restaurants including the iconic ‘Berardos’. We are very privileged to have Chef Larson on board, creating amazing dishes at CootharaBAR & Bistro for visitors and guests of Habitat Noosa alike.

Chef Larsen has worked tirelessly to create our new Noosa bistro menu – which will cater to all tastes and dietary requirements. This menu is a must try, and is sure to impress even the fussiest of eaters! All produce has been sourced locally where possible – to create the ultimate local dining experience.
