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.

If you're looking for somewhere classy, modern and a little bit special in Surfers then Seaduction is the place ! The food is to die for, the service outstanding and the location and atmosphere is perfect. Four of us dined for dinner and our sister in law has coeliac disease so the chef tailored the menu to suit her needs.... More

My sister and I had lunch on the 30 October and were delighted with the entree and dessert. We should have looked a bit closer at the main description. We had "Crispy fish & chips" and there was way too much batter. The fish tasted lovely but we gave up on the scalloped potatoes. Perhaps it was a "cultural" difference... More

What an amazing location. Right across from the best part of the beach, nice even at night as the area’s beautifully-lit. The restaurant itself is quite beautiful, very classy, and the staff ultra-professional, friendly, and informed. Sadly, the food itself was less than stellar. In the degustation we were served, there were a number of quite strange combinations. I’m happy... More

The food was spectacular. Great balance of flavors and visually looked beautiful. Shame their was only 1 waitress who seemed disinterested and had a bit of attitude! Took forever to get her attention and by the time she would go to the kitchen and back,well it just didn't match the terrific food.
