I haven't eaten in the restaurant but pop in here for a cocktail every now and again. It may be a little slow but for the quality of the cocktail it is worth the wait. They have an extensive cocktail menu and the show of making the cocktail is fun in itself. The lounge bar is relaxing and comfortable and... More

This restaurant is one of the best I have eaten at. It shines as a bright star here on the Gold Coast - there is nothing to compare it to as far as combining quality of food and service. You are made to feel welcome and special in a warm friendly manner but with a touch of class thrown in.... More

Modern & exciting food served by friendly wait staff made for a truly beautiful dining experience. I really liked the concept of shared plates, thought it worked really well. Dessert was the absolute highlight - the chocolate sphere, honeycomb & ice creams was just divine! Only negative was that the front area doubles as a cocktail bar & was quite... More

Recommended by our group of friends who had enjoyed cocktails the night prior with fantastic service, unfortunately on returning the next night the service was close to rude. On arriving we sat outside whilst the ladies ordered, noticing a function inside. On enquiring we were told that the function was over and could move inside but once we asked a... More

Once again a "magnifique" diner at Room 81. First of all, this Melbourne style cuisine prepared by the young Chef Sam Moore is stunning. Good product, good recipe, and knowledge make the difference. Food is different from Chefs who made the reputation of this restaurant. However food was amazing and you're one of the best Chef who've worked in Room... More

We were staying at the Sofitel so it was great that the resturant was so excellent. The food is excellent and very innovative, the wine list also great. The staff were first class and on return visit remembered our names and made us feel very welcome. A great find.

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

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
