We came for cocktails and highly recommend the espresso martinis. The intimate atmosphere, service, decor and view provided the perfect space for those who enjoy a few quiet drinks with friends without the noise factor of the Surfers nightlife.

My partner and I dined in Seaduction for our anniversary a couple of months ago, we have not stopped talking about it since! From the moment we walked through the (very beautiful) front door, we were greeted warmly by staff and seated for pre dinner drinks. Being a special occasion we settled in for an evening of culinary delight. We... More

There's much to he said about the need for glitz on the Gold Coast and it always doesn't translate well to quality. With that in mind we were fully expecting mediocrity. To our surprise we were proven wrong on this occasion. Being a last minute booking we managed to secure the private dining room after calling and talking to a... More

This restaurant exceeded all our expectations for our anniversary dinner. We had the 5 course degustation. Each course was delicious matched perfectly each time with their wine recommendations. Great service. Beautiful surroundings. All class! Will definitely be back.

Great restaurant. We ordered off the menu rather than the degustation. Entrees of scallops and calamari were brilliant. Wonderful taste for each which we shared. Very photographic with foam and different components. Mains were duck for me and pouisson for her. Both amazing. Not large serves but substantial enough. The side of broccolini was probably not needed. Desert menu was... More

After a VERY shaky start, in that neither of the two bottles of S.S.B. wine advertised on the menu were available, we decided to stay and sample the food. Our first impressions were not all that great; it took a while for the staff to 'find' a table with a view. At no stage during our leisurely lunch were there... More

Enjoyed my first visit to Seaduction. Food was divine, wine to match was perfect. Service was excellent (can't fault it). Looking forward to my return next time I'm on the Gold Coast.

If you like fine dining experiences or are simply looking for somewhere special to dine out then I would definitely recommend Seaduction in the Soul building. I have dined here a few times with my husband and family members and have never been disappointed with a single course. We love to try each dish and even though I am not... More

Been there several times since it opened & have been blown away by the food / service on every occasion. Last night enjoyed the degustation WOW. A must try is the calamari, so tender, don't know how the Chef does it, but I'm glad he does. A wonderful place to suit many occasions. I'll be BACK!
