Outstanding menu, I really felt like I could have picked anything from the menu and enjoy it. Very, very high quality, fresh ingredients. Gorgeous interior space and magnificent view. Attentive but not intrusive or pretentious service. This place is really impressive. I dined here for business but it would be the perfect venue for a special occasion.

After reading great reviews of Seaduction, we decided to have a celebration breakfast there while on a weekend stay at surfers. The staff were all delightful and attentive. The decor is beautiful, with great attention to detail, and tables are well separated, so that you feel very uncluttered. Our buffet breakfast did not disappoint, with perfectly prepared Bircher muesli, fresh... More

I went with a large group of overseas visitors - none or few of whom had any concept of what was going to be put in front of them and out of this a word of caution. This is a very smart restaurant and an understanding of what it is about is important otherwise this can disappoint. Having got that... More

Dined a few months ago and absolutely loved it! Without doubt, the best fine dining restaurant on the coast. Came back to gold coast a few weeks ago and could not get a booking. Still dreaming of the tasty food from my last visit!!

We booked this restaurant on word of mouth recommendation as been very special. We decided Seaduction would be the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Seaduction is situated on the second floor of the Sea Temple Hotel in the newly erected Soul Building on the waterfront at Surfers Paradise. You get to the restaurant via a sweeping marble... More

I would like to thank the staff of Seaduction for making my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversay a wonderful experience. The Seaduction Degustation was the perfect way to celebrate. The food was amazing and the wines a true complement. The service was impeccible. The extra plate of chocoate Happy Anniversary and macaroons a lovely touch. My parents were then surprised with...

Seaduction has brought me back to Surfers! My husband and I haven't had much of a reason to go since we left our nightclubbing days behind us 15 years ago, but this restaurant is great. There isn't a great number of these sorts of restaurants which are common place in most cities. Its the sort where your mains are going... More
