I was uncomfortable about this... More

One of the few restaurants on the Gold Coast (Southport) that serves not only top cuisine but also first rate entertainment. Jeff the owner goes out of his way to ensure your experience is first class.

Had the pleasure of dining at "The Vault" last night, where as a first time guest was impressed by the old world charm and 1930's jazz bar feel but modern restaurant if that makes sense. The ambience was perfect with the lighting just right. A big bonus was live jazz entertainment in the form of Wayne Foster who performed many... More

Situated in Scarborough St Southport this gem has survived the two years of the light rail infrastructure disruption, no mean feat! It's survival is testament to the efforts of Jeff and his partner Leesha, they have created a place with a terrific ambiance, the decor is subdued as is the lighting, but you can still read the menu which is...

Went out to celebrate a birthday with a group of 6. Being a Friday night we were all thirsty and had to wait in excess of 20 minutes from when we placed our drink order to be told they needed to chill the wine. What the? We then said we would order something that was already chilled. Another 20 minute... More

Not just a good meal but also a great night out. The menu is very limited with just steak, fish or chicken but the food is fresh and well cooked, the vegetables were crisp and fresh and the desserts are worth trying. The decor is fantastic, very different from anything else in the area and it sets up a great... More

I popped in one evening to see that this was perhaps the swankiest joint in Queensland! There is live music, the decor is romantic in the sense of 1920s New York, and the food is amazing! I ordered two tapas thinking it would be a light meal only to have huge plates of delicious food delivered to me at prices... More

Was invited by a family friend and came on a Thursday night , evening warmed up around 8 and the plates started to arrive and every dish was fantastic.
