Firstly, all other restaurants should take lessons as to how you train your staff. Really ..... pay attention! This restaurant has nailed good service and great food. It's not that hard but so many places miss the mark. But about the food. The house specialty of Crab Lasagne always hits the mark .... it is rich and the flavour is... More

We visited on our last night on the GC. Two adults and two kids. Best kids menu options we have seen and our son chose the eye fillet and salad and chips option. He loved it! Mains were lovely and the desserts creative and yummy. Service was attentive and friendly.

There was a 4 of us and our little staffy Magic. We were able to have our dog with us and our table was perfect. He could sit near us and we all enjoyed our night out. The crab lasagne was delicious and we all tried a different dessert. They were all amazing. We will go there again.

Then for dessert my... More

One of the worst dinning experiences I've had for a while! My friend and I ordered a prawn entrée to share, being on the Gold Coast we expected lovely, juicy, fresh prawns but no we got 6 frozen prawns from the supermarket! The fish main was beautiful and fresh but the accompanying veg dish was cold and tasteless!

My husband and I both enjoy our seafood and are regularly disappointed with the quality we receive in restaurants. We tried the oyster tasting plate, cured ham, scallops, garlic prawns and bread with truffle butter. I would give each of the dishes 10/10. The service was quick, the staff were friendly and the drinks were icy cold. We will definitely... More

I was here for work mainly, just covering staff sickness normally working up in Townsville. I was told this was a nice place to eat. Went for a walk out on an evening and happened to come across it. I love my Italian seafood kind of dishes so the menu suited me perfect. I Choose the spaghetti seafood plate. Cooked... More

We had a mid week dinner at Shuck and was pleasantly surprised. Although they were busy they managed to squeeze us onto a nice table. Service was very good and the wine list had a good selection. Prices were a little on the high side, yet wine quality matched the prices. I would advise to train the waitress what the... More

We went for Melbourne Cup lunch. Everything was beautifully presented & we loved everything we ordered. For a set menu - it was one of the best I have ever had.
