It is a really beautifully presented restaurant. The entree and mains were excellent I would recommend the eye fillet beef, perfectly cooked and... read more

We went to this place thinking it was going to be a family friendly place to eat. When we looked at the menu we just didn't know how they could be so expensive. The food on the menu was not something the normal everyday family would eat. Very pricey and over rated.

Went here on Friday 31/07/2015 to celebrate a birthday. I didn't know Surfers had such a venue, the view was stunning, the service excellent and the Mon-Fri lunch special well worth the price for a fine dining 3 course menu with a glass of wine. Would highly recommend this restaurant not only for lunch but next time I am going... More

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

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.
