We enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch at Seaduction for a second consecutive year. The food, (Christmas) atmosphere, view and service were all very good. In particular, the staff are well trained and friendly. It was also impressive to see Chef Szabo there on Christmas day. Given that Christmas lunch costs $500 for two, there are a couple of points worth... More

The food is excellent and the view of the ocean and Surfers are the best you would get anywhere not cheap but worth having a meal here

Return visit to this restaurant for a family group celebration. We were seated in a private room, which is always a bonus, especially if your group is a noisy one. Waitress saw us seated and promptly organised the wine list for us, in no time we all had our drinks served in beautiful glasses. The table setting was lovely, such... More

Seaduction is a very special place. But for the seafood lover it is simply brilliant. We celebrate our Wedding Anniversary there every year, this year we did the Degustation Menu. What a treat, course after course of "straight off the boat" seafood, cooked to perfection accompanied by the perfect wine. No overpowered sauces and stuff here. Seaduction is all about... More

We chose to celebrate my birthday dinner at Seaduction following reviews I read on TripAdvisor. It was by far the best restaurant we dined at during our week long holiday in Surfers Paradise. From the manner in which our reservation and requests for adjustments to the menu for our daughter who has nut allergies was handled...to the service received during... More

The food was amazing with fabulous flavours and presentation. Staff unobtrusive but attentive. The meals are at price you would anticipate at one hat restaurant. View of beach added bonus. Great dinner would highly recommend.
