Description: Boutique restaurant with a "Fine Casual" attitude - you will receive all the trimmings of 5star service and food in a casual atmosphere where you feel comfortable and at home. We pride ourselves on a 'shared plate philosophy' where people can tantalise their tastebuds with flavours from all of the world in one sitting, or you can just order your favourite dish and keep it all for yourself… if you can pick one that is. Our place is for people to come, relax, enjoy, dine and leave feeling content , tantalised and extremely satisfied as well as all that feeling you've made new friends by visiting us… and hopefully planning your next trip back

“Still #1 - and justifiably so”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

When a restaurant is booked out on a Monday night and there's only one table left for the following Saturday night, you know it's doing quite a few things right.
I've been introducing locals and visitors alike to The Little Plate since it opened; they have been as impressed with both the food and the service as I continue to be.
I can only repeat what I said in my original review, and what other reviewers say: fresh and delicious flavour combinations, friendly service, reasonable prices.
The Little Plate is a Big Dining Experience: long may it reign as #1!!

“Best lunch on the Gold Coast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at The Little Plate several times and have never been even slightly disappointed. The ambience and the service are excellent but the food is incredible! I love the menu....it is so varied and always changing. There is something for everyone. There are options to order share plates or you can order your own meal. I really loved the Latvian sprats. Keep up the good work girls!

“Gourmet delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit tonight with friends from the UK was a delicious finale to their two week visit. The food and service at this boutique restaurant was first class and we will no doubt be returning to work our way through the tantalizing menu. The little hidden gem being a short walk from our Burleigh unit makes it even more attractive. Well worth a visit but booking recommended.

“BEST FOOD WE HAVE EVER HAD - ANYWHERE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

My partner and I are not fussy. We just like good quality food at a reasonable price. Seems these days you can't even get a steak at your local surf club for under $30 - which is usually sub standard.
Imagine our surprise when we came across the little plate after some recommendations from friends.....AMAZING FOOD, BEAUTIFUL QUAINT ATMOSPHERE and did I mention AMAZING FOOD?!
Our favourites were the Blue Corn Pulled Pork Taco's and the eye fillet with those delicious duck fat potatoes. We nearly fell off our chair knowing we had the best meal of our life for such a reasonable price. No mains are over $25 - which seems to be their philosophy.
We will be back (weekly if I have anything to do with it).
Also, their ciders and beers on tap I believe are made by a micro brewery and have no preservatives.
These ladies are passionate about their food and it shows on the plate.
VISTING IS A MUST!
