Fine dining at its best

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.

a celebrity chef is able to make an omelette without to break the shell, everyone is a celebrity in qld,even the janitor. it was expensive and what you pay for a slice of ham you can afford the whole piglet. , service ok, view fine but ned kelly will wait for you

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!

We tried this in August as an attempt to find some fine dining on the Gold Coast. The interior and decor are excellent. We went late night but I can imagine there are some great views over the beach during the daytime. We opted for the taster menu though we asked to change one of the courses with neither of... More

Excellent location, the service was fantastic, the food was very good. The slow cooked octopus was a little tough but the flavours were great.

Was recently up on the GC and came across this restaurant by doing a quick look-up on tripadvisor. It definitely deserves 5 stars. The lunch menu was great, there is a 2 course option. The smoked salmon was the best I have probably ever had. The wine list is very reasonable and delicious and the desserts top of the meal... More
