“A Local suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great local Restaurant with an interesting menu. They even supply blankets for those cool Gold Coast evenings. So happy I discovered this place, and for me it is very close to home, which makes it even better.

“Robina's Jewel in the Crown.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I visited this restaurant with three friends and we were surprised to find such a great restaurant tucked away in a quiet corner of Robina. The cuisine is a mixture of European and Japanese and works extremely well. We had been warned that it was a bit more expensive than most nearby establishments but the experience was well and truly worth it. The menu was exciting and enticing and all but one of us had three courses. They were all mouthwateringly beautiful. I had spanner crab croquettes with yuzu mayo followed by tempura-battered zucchini flowers stuffed with tofu on a bed of vegetable risotto and red capsicum coulis and finally I squeezed in a cointreau creme brulee served with vanilla icecream! The others raved about prawn bisque, pork belly, duck breast, bouillabaisse (served in the cocotte) and more wonderful desserts. My three courses came to $59 and I thought it was worth every cent. The chef came to visit all the tables to ask whether our meals had been satisfactory. They certainly were, and so was the efficient and friendly service. A bonus was the fact that Cocotte is BYO. It was a very cold June night and we were seated in a courtyard outdoors, but standard heaters and full tables ensured that we were not cold. This place is an eye-opener and a Gold Coast standout in my opinion. We all agreed to visit again in a couple of months' time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

What a great little restaurant, amazing food complemented by great service. The only thing letting it down is the location and setting. We sat outside near and the courtyard has so much potential but sadly does not match the quality of the cuisine & service.

“Japanese Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I think I died and went to heaven. This little restaurant in a suburban shopping centre is so much more once you go inside the door. Even in Winter, there is an inviting and warm outdoor area as well as the main room where you can see the chefs prepare the meals. I know I will be back again to try the rest of the items on the menu. If you are dessert lover, the Belgium Chocolate Souffle which was cooked to order, and then served with home made icecream, just capped off the night. The menu was what I would think was modern, French cuisine, and then there was this traditional Japanese twist onto every item. The balance of flavours was developed and each mouthful brought a new experience to the meal.
