“Small things matter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We have been here at least a dozen times. And we will come again, My review is intended as constructive information.

Great people who are trying really hard to establish a good quality atmosphere. Our part if town needs this place.

Tonight we got good service, good atmosphere, and a partially cold meal.

The lamb rack was perfect, the potatoes where stone cold. My wife had an ok steak with cold fries. Chef has to check whats coming out.

The plates where cold.

The olives where in a very sour oil. Previuosly perfect olives.

Other than that another good night.. see you
All again..

“Cosy with great entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The Vault in Southport, Gold Coast is almost another world. Step off a busy footpath in to a themed dining & entertaining area, open plan seating area, yet tables are designed and set out so it is easy for couples to chat quietly, or larger groups to sit and enjoy. Fully Licenced, a very good menu, and meals presented with style. We have been a number of times, and have pretty much sampled most of the menu by now! We cannot recall a single dish we would not order again!
We have dined as a couple, with friends in say groups of 4 or 5, and as a large party group celebrating a birthday (there were 26 of us!)
At every visit, the service is great, the staff are friendly and having fun, and the tastes are excellent!
Every evening there is live entertainment from an extremely well equipped stage area, and this venue has been known to attract some very professional and experienced entertainers.
We look forward to each visit with much pleasure.
If there is a downside, it is only the road-works that are currently happening, and sometimes it is a short (80 meter) walk from where you might find a car park in the local streets.

“Almost there!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If this was LA where I'm from, I would be giving it a lower rating, but you have to take into account the context and I've been in Australia enough to know that the service here was actually not bad by comparison to the rest of Oz. And the music was not great the night we were there but again this isn't the entertainment capital of the world so I get that and didn't take that into account for the rating. The food however was really quite good - surprisingly so! We really enjoyed everything we had and especially the pumpkin. Really good. The theme of the decor, while not for everyone, was well done. Also, the menu and the wine list are well priced. And a very good wine list it is to boot. All in all the only reason the place doesn't get an 'excellent' from me is because of the service. I feel with minimal effort and a little training they could really up the standard of that and make the experience a bit more special. I absolutely recommend this place!
