Good food at Good Prices

A friendly, open style café to watch life go by close to the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast. Staff are happy and friendlyGet in early for some great "early bird" specials at either lunch or dinner.

I have been going here for years, everytime we come over to Surfers (about four times a year) and have found each time the quality has gone down. We brought the earth and sea platter and the fish was floury, steak chewy, chicken rock hard and dry, the poor bug had about two mouthfuls. I didn't try the other seafood... More

Really bad experience with a manager that ruined an otherwise lovely meal. This restaurant provides a discount via the iVenture card which they then refused to honor. It's not about the discount, just really shady business practice, bait and switch. Manager could easily have made it right, but chose to talk to us really condescendingly, treating us poorly because we... More

While staying in Broadbeach recently my husband and I took advantage of our Groupon voucher for the Earth & Sea Platter with bottle of wine at Sage Restaurant. We booked for a Monday evening, so the restaurant was not busy. Our waiter was pleasant and showed us to a table inside, told us we could order entree if we wished... More

Had a very disappointing breakfast here. Big breakfast was lukewarm, tasted like everything had been pre-cooked and reheated. I had to ask where my daughters pancakes were... I'd say they forgot them as when they came out, they were cold and hard in places..... They weren't busy, only about 5 tables taken. It was quite pricey even with 25% discount... More

With a great selection off the menu I decided on the beef Texan ribs choices of 400g or for a few dollars more 800g. Well I ordered the 800g which was more then I could eat. Thinking a lot of bone and less meat, no way - more meat to feed a army. Another bonus, order before 6pm and get... More

Ordered through Cuisine Deliveries (hotel delivery service) after specifically saying we'd like ribs to feed 3 people. Sage advised that their full rack (1kg) with chips and salad would do, we also ordered a garlic pizza. $67 later and upon delivery was extremely disappointed definitely did not look like full rack of ribs, only had 3 ribs each, a thin...

An award winning place, the menu is varied and the staff is friendly. The lamb skewers were excellent, whether it's coffee, lunch or dinner. This place is definitely worth a try.

Started with 3 tapas and then the seafood pizza. Slow evening for the restaurant. Service excellent as was the food. Lives up to what it proposed to be. Enjoy
