“$40 for 2 people!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We went here on our first night in Surfers Paradise. We had flown in, picked up the car, gone to our hotel and were starving so cooking wasn't really an option. We took a walk down Cavill Ave and found ourselves confronted with many cheap restaurants begging for our business. We chose the Seafood Empire. My boyfriend ordered a burger and a chicken parma and I ordered the fish and chips. We both got two cans of soft drink each and it only cost us $40!! The food was not top quality, it was probably worse than a pub, but it was nice, quick and cheap! I hardly think you can complain about that. If you chose to go to a place that has $10 fish and chips, you know your not going to get gourmet quality food. Defiantly a spot for young families and young backpackers/travellers on a tight budget.

“Waste of time & money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

The steaks we got were poor quality, something you would do at home as a quick cheap meal, chips were cold, mushroom sauce was flavourless, and our side dishes were foul, frozen veggies heated up and DEB packet mash potato, absolutely disgusting I sent it back and demanded a refund which they were reluctant to give me. I recommend no one eats at this establishment, don't waste your money or time there, staff don't know how to communicate with each other also, as we were told to sit at a table and then told not to sit there by the cranky manager.

“$5 Breakfast...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Can't complain when the prices are so cheap! We had breakfast here nearly everyday - $5 got you eggs, bacon and toast and I thought it was great value and really yummy.

“Cheap breakfast, unprofessional staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

The breakfast we had here was cheap and cheerful. One member of staff kept having a go at other members of staff, wasn't very professional!
