My partner and I had a lovely meal at Room81. First time after more than a year, due to an average experience at the restaurant. Same menu for too long or nothing really interesting. I learned that a new chef had just arrived from Melbourne, I took the time to look at the menu and decided to try again. Service... More

Unplanned night out , we arrived at Room 81 for a late dinner.First impression very positive: We have been welcomed by the staff and the manager with a 'bonsoir' and big smiles. After being seated at our table (we could choose inside or outside)menus and wine list were presented in a very professional way. Another waiter came to us with... More

We were so impressed by the impeccable service provided by Lilian and Alex and Sam's food that we dined here 3 days out of 4 staying in the hotel. A great concept, a must do if you enjoy fine food.

Great staff, ordinary location over looking the driveway of the hotel with people using the verandah as a thoroughfare. The meals are beautifully presented but just lack flavour. We based our choice on a rating from the good food guide which has it as the number one on the Gold Coast - not even close, Verve, Seaduction or Truffle are... More

Whenever at Broadbeach for work, I always seem to end up at room81 multiple times during my trip. What normally starts as a quiet after work drink can turn into a fantastic dinner with colleagues and/or a night of fun cocktails. For a Sofitel bar and restaurant, it is very reasonably priced. The food is delicious and the drinks are... More

Dinner with friends, great spot, fabulous atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff however we felt the food let you down, fantastic on the eye and very talented chef but the meat was uneatable , I would have to say over 3/4 was fat and it was very unpleasant. Most of us had the beef, we are not in a great hurry... More

Valentines Day 14th Feb - our nephew and his gorgeous girlfriend gave us a gift voucher for Room 81 - far too much money to spend on us and we were so overwhelmed by their generosity. A Degustation Menu - we previously have had one at The Sheraton in Hawaii and was disappointed. So we didn't have high expectations but... More

I was amazed to find this restaurant was not rated in the top 3-4 restaurants in Broadbeach. Having eaten at most of them I can thoroughly recommend this- particularly for a special occasion. It may be more ' pricey' than most but it's food quality, preparation and presentation is ' awesome'. The service ( at least on the night we... More
