I have previously reviewed this restaurant when I attended for a business dinner and it was fantastic. This time I returned for the buffet breakfast with my family while staying at Soul, which is the hotel the restaurant is based in. The overall experience and quality was dreadful, especially when the price is added to the picture. To start with,... More

We dined at 7 wonderful top level restaurants in SE Qld and Seaduction was up with the top of the list. The room is wonderful, the service good without being overbearing and the food deserves to be praised. The John Dory and grelot was a dish I shan't forget in a hurry; closed my eyes in appreciation kind of memorable.... More

This restaurant has a lovely intimate setting and is great for a special occasion. The meals I have had here have all been good and the staff attentive. Allow plenty of time, this is not a place you would want to be in a rush as it is so relaxing.

It is always a very good night out here. The only slight criticism is that the entree's and desserts seem to out shine the main.

Nice setting; good wine list; varied menu; not as busy as I would have expected; service was polite, professional but slow. Entrée arrived in a timely manner but he main course took forever. We were seated at 1300 hrs left at 1530 hrs. Two members of the party had the duck and found it to be tough.
