My colleague and I had dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From the moment we entered to the moment we left we were treated to a special meal. My friend had wood smoked salmon with caviar and I had scallops with black pudding crumble, both were delicious. We both decided to have the wagyu steak that was recommended to have... More

I had a lovely dinner at Seaduction but apart from top quality food, I wanted to praise this restaurant on its service. Many restaurants these days offer high quality food but fail on service. This one is a standout. Steak and fish (seafood) were fantastic. Hint: book a table near the window for the ocean views.

After reading the reviews we thought Seaduction would be a great. The staff were lovely but very slow. The prices are astronomical and higher than the prices of some 'hatted' restaurants in Sydney! The food was ok but very rich and has some weird food combinations. Wouldn't come back again

We enjoyed breakast each morning on our recent stay at the Sea Temple, the buffet breakfast had a great range of choices with hot items such as your standard bacon, sausages, scrambled and poached eggs, pancakes (which were simply divine), hash browns and cold choices with muffins, croissants, danishes, cold meats and cheeses and plenty of fruit and you could...

I live on the Gold Coast so I had heard about this restaurant many times. My partner is a head chef so also he had heard good things and we both wanted to give it a try. We are frequent diners at 5 star restaurants and 2/3 hatted restaurants, as our favorite has been ARIA Sydney and ARIA Brisbane for... More

Excellent service, beautiful decor. Food was disappointing. I had crab for entree it was tasteless. Duck for main - lacked flavor. Dessert was caramel tart which was delicious.

I think the chefs are caught in a time warp. I was surprised to see so much foam on the dishes. Foam? Really? This isn't the 90's. I had the wagyu steak and requested it medium-rare. Well, it must have been cooked by the trainee chef because it was medium and the steak was not worth the $55 I paid... More

Dear PerthFrequent_Flyer, Thank you for sharing your recent Seaduction Restaurant+Bar experience. We appreciate your recognition of our front of house team and the service you received. I am sorry the team did not cook your steak as ordered. Unlike standard steaks we always recommend our marble score 7 Wagyu be cooked to medium. Your comments regarding the use of foams... More

We had the 5 course degustation with matching wines. It was amazing! Each course was matched perfectly. We wasted away the hours enjoying every mouthful. The first dish of scallops with black pudding crumble was the highlight followed closely by the butternut ravioli and quail. In saying that each dish was absolutely perfect. And the service was second to none.... More

we decided to finally try this restaurant due to the great reviews it has received on trip advisor - we were certaintly not disappointed. The food was AMAZING! The pasta with seafood was one of the best I have ever had and the portion size was quite generous, but not over the top as you can find in some restaurants.... More
