We are Gold Coast locals and like many others are frequent return customers to this special restaurant, I took a group of friends there on Saturday night and as usual were warmly greeted by the owners Raffie & Natalie. The meals were perfect , two of our group of 6 ordered the steak and both were cooked precisely to the... More

My husband and I went just on the off chance of getting in without a booking and yes it was crazy busy but they still managed to fit us in. The wait staff were incredibly friendly and very attentive. We had a ciabatta bread for entree (beautiful and fresh) and then I had ravioli with spinach and feta covered in... More

Good atmosphere, good food, nice slide show of someone's holiday that brought back some great memories. Pizza was a little soggy in the middle but nothing too bad. Would come back.

A refreshing change in the heart of the tourist strip in Surfers. Elston has it's own beat and does it very well. Great coffee, interesting and creative food combinations. Modern and inviting fit out. Very Melbournesque. Classy and a little upmarket for the strip I like it and actually venture back into the tourist mecca just for the Elston experience.... More

We eat at this restaurant every time we visit Surfers Paradise. The food is always amazing, as is the service. We have a two and four year old so dining out is always challenging, however, the staff are always exceptionally accommodating and make our whole family welcome. The kids LOVE the pizza and pasta. Thanks to Raff and his family... More

We went here two nights and it was wonderful both nights. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We took our two year old and had a wonderful experience both nights and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. The children's meals are wonderful, the garlic bread amazing and the pasta just great. We tried the carbonara, the ravioli napolitana and... More

My family and I go to Alfresco's every single time we visit the Gold Coast, due to the fact that the food is consistently outstanding and authentic. We have had a variety of food from pizza, pasta to the seafood ragu (my favourite!) and everything has been so tasty every time. It's a fantastic causal and comfortable place to dine.... More
