For a special night out

This restaurant should be in Melbourne. The food is overly sophisticated for Queensland. However, the room is beautiful and the views are great. The service is first class.

It's worth it just for the views as you feel you are right on the beach and actually you almost are! The actual ambience and fit out is next to none. The staff are well trained and helpful. The food is what you would expect from a Two Hat establishment, well presented and something a little different. Treat yourself next... More

We had the five courses degustation with matching wine selections for each course. Simply deliscous! One of the best meals we have ever had. Food, wine and service faultless.

I'm not at my best in the morning but whilst staying at Soul hotel in Surfers Paradise I can honestly say that I looked forward to waking up to the breakfasts at Seaduction. Perfectly cooked poached eggs with a hollandaise sauce to die for.......... ......also a huge variety on the buffet - something to tempt and satisfy the choosy taste... More

You haven't had degustation until you try Seaduction. One of the best experiences I have ever had and would happily recommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.

The private dining room which seats 8-10 comfortably is a great way to get everyone around one table. It is separate to the main dining area and adjoins the wine cellar. Service was good. Entrees and mains good, dessert perhaps a little too deconstructed.

Our dining experience here was pretty good - nothing out of the box. The service was good - again nothing out of the ordinary - seemed a bit rushed however they did warn us that there were two big groups dining that evening. The menu is fairly unusual with some slighlty more unusual ingredients (pigs ear, tongue, sweatbreads) so probably... More

My family of 5 enjoyed an excellent mean and experience at this restaurant. While there was not kids menu per se suitable food items were offered for the kids (from the in-room dining menu). The menu was slightly adventurous for my taste but the wait staff made it clear I could ask for variation. I had the lamb belly (without... More

Simply superb experience. We were there for a birthday gathering and all our guests were very impressed. The food and wine is of course spectacular but that is already well known. We were very happy with the overall experience, especially the service which was immaculate! Respectful, courteous, helpful, friendly yet never intrusive, they were always there yet never in the...
