As one of the Gold Coast's premier, two-hatted restaurants, Seaduction has an elegance all of its own. The acclaimed menu is superbly complemented by an intimate wine-tasting room, private dining room and bar.Resisting the seductive aromas conjured by Executive Chef Steve Szabo and his team at Seaduction will prove impossible. Once you've tasted the handcrafted cuisine of our two-hatted restaurant you're sure to return.

Ticks all the fine dining boxes. Glasses, cutlery, plating, impeccable waitstaff and very clever food. A special occasion feeling, yet very Gold Coast relaxed style with a marvellous view. Have lunched there 3 times recently, but imagine evening dining would be very glamorous. Lunch special menu makes for an affordable outing with friends.

There were no vegetarian main courses and they said each person had to order a main course. I end up getting something the chef threw together which was just ok and they charged me $38! Not worth the hype.

Our first time here, it was just my wife & I. Our second time here, we brought our 2 yr old. We still love this place. The restaurant is beautifully laid out. The food is presented like a piece of art & tastes as amazing as it looks. They catered for our little bub too. Highly recommend to anyone visiting... More

Arriving at the restaurant you get the sense this is going to be special. the entrance and the decor is lovely. However the money has been spent on furnishing and not training as the staff whilst friendly are no where near the level of competency for this restaurant. We were left for great periods of time with no attention and... More

The range was very poor, the cooked food was just yuk, the chef was late(wasn't even there by 9am). The limited range of pastries were very stale. Nothing about it was pleasant. A total waste of $35 per person. Would not recommend it.

The negatives definitely outweigh the good things about this restaurant! The chefs did well on their behalf but the managers treated us terribly! We made a booking for a special occasion and asked for an ocean view and they didn't meet our request and we booked 3 days in advance (apparently not enough time in advance, as we were told)....

Your typical buffet breakfast with hot and cold selections. Pancakes were very yummy. Had eggs cooked yo order. Lovely freshly squeezed orange juice. Friendly wait staff and lovely ocean views. Only negative we're the plates. They are rectangle and flat with food sliding off them easily and not able to fit very much on your plate at one time. So... More

Went to Seduction this week. We were impressed from the moment we walked in. The spacious restaurant in an excellent location is beautifully furnished. The service is top notch and the food was very good. Definitely a high class restaurant that stands above the rest. We had the scallops for entree and steak for main. Both excellent. Others in our...
