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 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

First the great points... The decor, seating and atmoshere is exceptional and the outside view during daylight hours would be excellent (we dined in the evening). We mostly couldn't fault the service; friendly prompt and professional. The wine list is outstanding and drinks list otherwise very thoughtful and comprehensive. The following is our list of the 'just good not greats'... More

Dinner at seaduction surfers tonight,the food was every bit as good as any 2 hat restaurants in Syd , fresh innovative presentation that really impresses. I had the scallops and the snapper which were both excellent choices, my guests were equally impressed, the service was relaxed and the decor was subtle and stylish. Worth a visit and not too hard...

Being a chef, I look for many quaitites in the food I get at resturants. Seaduction delivered everything I wanted and then more. Was seated by the window with a nice view by friendly staff, and served drinks very quickly. Food was nothing short of perfect; complimentary amouse bouche of cauiflower soup, whole roast quail, lamb belly, pork belly, all... More

Ticks all the fine dining boxes. Glasses, cutlery, plating, impeccable waitstaff and very clever food. A special occasion feeling, yet very Gold Coast relaxed style with a marvellous view. Have lunched there 3 times recently, but imagine evening dining would be very glamorous. Lunch special menu makes for an affordable outing with friends.

There were no vegetarian main courses and they said each person had to order a main course. I end up getting something the chef threw together which was just ok and they charged me $38! Not worth the hype.
