Good good, even better location

The location, overlooking South Bank and the river is pretty unbeatable. And the food is pretty decent too. Admittedly, the service is a bit on the slower side, but it's worth it for the atmosphere. Just sit back, relax and take it in. I ate here twice during my visit.

Took the family here for an early dinner before going to QPAC for the evening. The service and food were excellent and the beers great.

A young friend and I had a pleasant and relaxing lunch at Southbank Surf Club yesterday. The food was good, the service excellent, and the atmosphere relaxed beside the man-made Southbank Beach. I was definitely over-dressed in tailored slacks and top.

We arrived on a very busy Friday evening. The restaurant is located right in the middle of the Southbank precinct and the night markets were on. We were seated almost immediately and quickly offered menus and drinks order taken. We all ordered the fish and chips. I was not expecting anything special, but I was pleasantly surprised. We received our... More

Worth mentioning is almost everything on the menu was gluten free, but the food is only poor to average. Our servers were quite pleasant though. I had the risotto which was bland and not really well cooked. Didn't... More

My partner, friends and I had a great time dining at Southbank Surf Club overlooking the very busy man-made beach. My partner ordered the chilli and garlic mussels and I had the Wagyu beef burger. Both were great!! The price for the serving size was great too. It was lovely to dine overlooking the water, enjoying the warm weather but... More

We had lunch here with friends and it was excellent. The staff are very friendly and chatty. The Surf Club is right over the beach and has a great view and vibe. We had a huge seafood platter which had great, fresh seafood, the oysters in particular were amazing. Lots of choice for food (not just seafood) and plenty of... More

Dined here for lunch on a hot and humid new years day. Had intended to go to another favourite restaurant at southbank but it was closed. Lucky us, what a great restaurant we found. Beautiful food and wine choices, and friendly service.
