Hidden away from the tourist strip, Verve delivers a true dining experience. The food was Modern Australian with a French twist, with every element on the plate making a symphony in the mouth. Service was attentive and proper without smothering. The wine list was impressive. Do yourself a favour and avoid the crass 'tourist' restaurants and head to Verve

Don't let the off-beat location and relative modesty of this little restaurant fool you: it offers one of the consistently best culinary experiences in Queensland. Our guests on our latest visit were a Sydney couple who had owned and operated one of that city's most popular and successful restaurants for over 25 years, and they couldn't fault Verve. Congratulations guys.... More

Not one of the usual 'trendy' haunts raved about by hipster locals, but was recommended by a discerning foodie friend, and oooooooh it did not disappoint!!!!! Quality ingredients combined with imaginative presentation made for a WIN on all fronts. Parred with some lovely Australian wines it was a surprisingly sophisticated and enjoyable evening. HIGHLY RECOMMEND you go out of your... More

This is one of a very few restaurants on the Gold Coast we have and will continue to visit. Our Latest visit we even brought friends from Melbourne who were also impressed.

This was my third visit and third time choosing the degustation menu. I felt it wasn't as good as previous meals I've had there, but still delicious. I know it is considered fine dining, but still feel $95pp is quite expensive.

Tucked away in suburban Broadbeach Waters is the small and unassuming Verve restaurant. This restaurant has won a Chef's Hat for a number years running and I can help to explain why. The food was simple and stunning. Not a huge menu but it was hard to choose as all dishes read well. We had a party of four and... More

This special intimate restaurant (only a block behind the Casino and a short walk from Broadbeach) is a class act. The food was so beautifully presented and was absolutely delicious! Our waiter was so doting and informative about each dish, (not to mention the French accent) ...They even served a lovely cleansing dish between courses....perfect for a quiet night out... More

Great restaurant! Fabulous wine and amazing food! Extremely knowledgable and attentive staff. We were in the gold coast visiting our daughter and wanted a small venue. This was the perfect choice.

Very glad we decided to get off the beaten Broadbeach track and headed over to broadbeach waters to try neighbourhood gem, Verve. Lovely owner Lisa was such a delight. The menu is not big but all meals can be served as a entree or main portion - I loved this! A great restaurant & must try for intimate atmosphere, fabulous... More
