After moving to Surfers Paradise, decided to bring my girlfriend out for a nice meal and chose Seaduction based on the reviews here. The restarting has a beautiful setting and the staff are extremely nice and professional. I just wish someone had posted a review mentioning how incredibly tiny the portions are to how expensive the restaurant is! I understand... More

We stayed at Soul and dined at Seaduction for lunch one day, and dinner as well another day. The lunch menu was quite limited, but it was nice. The dinner was fantastic! Every course was beautifully presented and delicious. The space is lovely as well, plenty of room between tables, facing the ocean. Hip and and romantic at the same... More

I've been here twice now, first time was a Christmas party and we had a set menu so I thought it may have been bad luck, entrees were ok, mains were barely edible, desserts were good. Second time was a la carte, very boring and bland taste. $55 for a steak that I could have done better at home, missing... More

The waiter in charge of our table is very good but the restaurant supervisor Kahtyrn never once approach our table to find out whether everything is ok. And when we asked her for help with the table when we arrived, she gave unhappy look and some sarcastic comments, and ask someone else to do the job. This really spoils our... More

We were not meant to go to Seaduction for my Birthday lunch..however the Restaurant we initially booked had to close due to a fault in their kitchen and they recommended Seaduction to us....and thank goodness they did! Seaduction is situated just a few streets up from the middle of Surfers in the beautiful Soul Building. The Restaurant directly overlooks the... More

A special night, and nearly $1,300 later for 4 people, the fixed menu was disappointing. I thought I was going to get something out of the box, but didn't make it out of the gates. 2 of us enjoyed the matched wines, which of those I recognised where about $25-30 a bottle, where good, but I had expected so much...

This restaurant is beautiful. Great value when you compare with similar restaurants in Sydney. Air con was very cold but and blowing straight on our table but was adjusted when requested. All meals were superb!! My only negative comment is being asked to cough up the credit card surcharge to pay. When it's an expensive restaurant they should absorb this... More
