Better than Boutique

The host had an American accent but was very polite and entertaining with good recommendations for drinks.

I can't say I've ever enjoyed a breakfast more than that one. Excellent food in a lovely place. Definitely try the doughnuts if they have them!

We recently stayed at the Sofitel Hotel Broadbeach and so dined in Bistro on 3 for both breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet was very good and offered good fresh choices. Plenty of fresh fruits and the smoked salmon was very good also happy to see gluten free bread and cake on offer on the buffet. I like the fact... More

We ate here before going out for the evening and so were in a rush. The staff were friendly and helpful and made sure we were served quickly and efficiently. The menu has a French focus but isn't extensive. We started with the Charcuterie to share and it was okay. It was a little limited in comparison to other restaurants... More

Staying at the Sofitel we decided to have a dinner at bistro on 3 as Room 81 was closed for a function. The restaurant is adjacent to the pool area and where the buffet breakfast is served, however unfortunately attempts to transform this space & inject atmosphere fall short. The waitress (Russian?) was just lovely & very experienced and knowledgable... More

This is the cheap restaurant at the Sofitel Broadbeach, not actually cheap but cheaper than Room 81. The food is mostly French Fusion and you will like it of you like French food. We had a great waitress, a Russian Uni student that made up for the very ordinary interior decor of the place. There is nothing wrong with it,... More

This casual little restaurant sits on the 1st floor of the Sofitel Broadbeach. We had two meals there: one a dinner and the other a lunch. Both were lovely in their own way. Good quality, fresh and well-presented. Nothing over the top, just nice, yummy offerings. See my pics of our family’s choices at the lunch. The gluten free bread... More

On3 would have to be one of the best places to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Every preference, taste and desire is catered for. It is so nice to start the day with a freshly made cup of coffee or pot of tea and to savour the delights of the buffet. Loved the fresh fruits and French pastries. Nothing is too... More
