The freshly shucked oysters to start the meal were magic, presented beautifully on a slate tile. The snapper and pork were both cooked perfect and really tasty. A lot of love went into every dish, everything looked amazing and tasted even better.

Came here with my partner for our anniversary, on a holiday. The service was faultless and the food was outstanding. We had the degustation with matching wines which I would highly recommend. Each dish was thoroughly explained. Staff were so lovely and friendly, but very professional. Both of us work in the hospitality industry and can be difficult to please,... More

Service excellent. Food was a bit fussy and not much of it. My husband was still hungry after three courses and he is not a huge eater. My daughter's lamb was cold but overall, very nice atmosphere and food was nice.

Ate here with 4 friends recently and had a wonderful night. The staff are extremely professional. We had the degustation. The staff explained each dish thoroughly and the presentation was amazing. The food tasted as good as it looked and we had a great night. Would recommend eating here to everyone.

We dined at Seaduction last night, a birthday dinner for my husband and I. The atmosphere is relaxed and intimate. The tables are well spaced, well set up and we were lucky to get a table looking directly out to the Surfers Esplanade. We opted for the degustation menu. It was divine from start to finish! The staff were all... More

The restaurant is housed on the second floor of the Soul building in central Surfers and looks out over the surf beach.... More

This is a top end restaurant with food creations, a wine list, service, and prices to match. My husband and I really enjoyed our evening meal which was crafted to excellence. In addition, the ambiance and beach outlook were great, the spacing between tables sufficient for some privacy, the pacing of the meal was spot on, and the staff was... More
