We ate here one night for dinner. The food was OK but expensive. The service was over powering. It was like you get on Lygon Street in Melbourne. I felt we were rushed and pressured into making decisions until I registered my dissatisfaction. With two adult meals, one child’s meal and no desert and a medium bottle of wine it... More

Very disappointed with the quality of dishes. We were the only couple on a Thursday night....really underwhelmed in our main. Given the pricing we expected refined flavours and presentation...bland, garlicky and disappointing!

Tucked away from the main stroll on the Gold Coast this restaurant is a real find. Excellent service and fantastic seafood and deserts were a highlight. The Crab linguini was a stand out and the chocolate desert that came with the businessmans lunch was a delight. Fine glassware and cloth napkins complemented the casual yet sophisticated ambience. Would go back... More

High quality food and service. However, their prices are "right up there" and we thought overpriced despite our comment about food and service. I

What a great find- awesome street full of character. Shuck was amazing, I had the garlic prawns with a side of chips.. My husband had the chowder. Both lovely meals with a great wine selection and service! Will definitely be back when we are next die in the GC!

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
