City style meets beachside location with a stylish but relaxed vibe at the modern Alto Cucina & Bar in Broadbeach. After undergoing an extensive renovation including warm timbers and amber lighting, we are the Gold Coast's ultimate dining and drinking destination. With our extensive and impressive menu, Alto is still the perfect place for Mediterranean tastes and share plates, tasty breakfasts, long lunches, delicious dinners, decadent desserts, luscious cocktails, and for relaxing drinks at the bar.

We were a group of five dining here on Good Friday. Excellent service (even if we had to sprint back to the hotel for ID for one of our group - this was handled pleasantly by our friendly waiter). We shared a prawn platter and a couple of very tasty pizzas - and left happy diners. I'd be happy to... More

Like many restaurants this one can take nice food and after they finish playing with it it really isn't worth eating. Plenty of better spots to eat. At night turns into a funky bar and quite nice , but again pretty expensive for... More

Had a nice enough breakfast here but service was hap-hazzard, food pretty average for the price. Have walked past at lunch and dinner and looks better, so maybe we'll try again.

Went with a group of friends recently, it was a second choice as the restaurant we were going to wasn't open. We were very pleasantly surprised. We have the set menu which was $45 per person.

Had both breakfast and lunch here on a recent trip to Broadbeach. On both occasions the service was OUTSTANDING. At breakfast a lovely very friendly lady could not have made us more welcome.
