My 7 year old daughter and I ate at Vapiano tonight. We'd never been before so it was a unique experience. I loved the idea of the card they give you to scan at the food bar, drinks bar and then pay at the register when you leave. The food was yum and the atmosphere was great. I'd definitely go... More

Modern style dining, with a great atmosphere and great location in surfers. Totally love the herbs in pots on display and at your table. Grab a card on entry and charge to it as you go! Pay the total on way out! Great for groups as you can each have your own card and don't have the hassle of splitting... More

Yum, yum, yum! What a fabulous dining experience! My husband and I went to Vapiano for dinner on our recent wedding anniversary getaway to Surfers Paradise. Having never dined there before, we weren't sure what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is very unique in that you stand in line to order your food and then it's... More

We were deciding where to eat on my birthday dinner and came across this little gem. You are given a card each, as you order you swipe your card then when you are ready to leave you hand back the card and everything is billed on there ready to go, takes the hassle out of "one bill per table policies"...

I found the set up of this place very strange and didn't like the card system. The food was good value for money though there is no table service. I ordered the arrabiatta which was unbelievably hot! I usually love spicy food, but the amount of chilli that was in this pasta was incredible!

Talk about being in the right place!! Only steps away from the beach! This restaurant delivered an amazing experience for my friends and I. Great concept can be found at this place.. you are given an card and you scan said card at each station you would like to order from (pizza, pasta, bar, etc) and at the end of... More

When you arrive you are given a card which is used to order food and drinks. Food is ordered at a counter where your food is cooked in front of you - which is a great idea - but the food is expensive for what you got and it is tasteless. The garlic pizza was dripping with oil and couldn't... More
