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.

Recently went with friends and found the service to be pretty good however the price and the way in which the food is complemented is firstly overpriced and secondly strange. The food very much is all about how it looks rather than having a hearty meal. No great views so not too sure why the prices are high for the... More

We'd booked well in advance and were seated at a great table - lovely view. But it went downhill from there. Waited nearly 20 minutes for service. Food was good, but not great. For the prices they charge I expected something really good. Won't be back.

Having received a Degustation voucher from our nephew and his new Bride as a thank you, I was ambivalent to the night ahead. Having been in the business (F&B) for many years I have dined around the world and have eaten many a fine meal and degustation menu. Tonight was the best I have experienced.The food and wine was sublime.Each... More

My husband and I visit Seaduction on a regular basis. From when we first discovered it, it has become our favourite place for special occasions and celebrations and makes us feel like we are spoiling ourselves :) Both having extensive hospitality backgrounds ourselves, we tend to pick at things when we eat out but we're yet to find fault here....

One of the worst experiences I've had. Virtually no table service, over cooked and salted food and snooty waitresses. Lovely decor and location but would highly recommend to give a miss.

Great menu, great location and views...you can watch the world walk past against a lovely ocean backdrop.... see some funny sights I tell you!! When we were therre the food was great but we had to search for some cutlery which was a bit undersupplied for some reason. Nevertheless, we had a great time and would go back again.

The night started off well with excellent service and a nice table with ocean views. The restaurant had a very nice feel, modern and plenty of ambience for a special occasions with friends, family or as a couple. We chose the degustation with matching wines. What was consistent was the quality of the wine but the food was missing the... More

We enjoyed lunch, at what would have to be one of the Gold Coast's best locations. The restaurant is stunning. Furnishings are modern, interesting and clean. The view is amazing. The chairs were comfortable which for me, is essential. The service from start to finish is exceptional. As a couple, one of us ordered off the lunch menu and one... More
