What time do restaurants close on the Gold Coast?

I'm wondering what time the restaurants are generally open until?

My flight arrives at Coolangatta at 9.30pm on a Thursday and I'm wondering if there will be any restaurants still open by the time I get in, not counting McDonalds!

You shouldn't have any problems ... some may be packing up to close but out on the streets there will be plenty of choices.

I agree with able

General hours don't *really* apply to restaurants, and I'd imagine it's more to do with licensing. It's easy enough to say about 10:30pm, but last order could be earlier.

Having said that, there are heaps of late night restaurants scattered all over the Gold Coast, so it'll depend on where you stay. I just took a quick look on Urbanspoon, and there seems to be a substantial list

urbanspoon.com/tn/350/8/40001/Queensland/Lat…

You'll notice they are for Broadbeach, Mermaid Beach and Surfers. I found that when I Googled 'Late night restaurants Gold Coast', the Urbanspoon listing came up with restaurants in Chicago.

I still wouldn't take the opening hours on there as gospel, and I'd directly contact your choices directly.

Alternately, if you're staying at a decent hotel (really really stress *decent*) and you're too tired, the good ole Club Sandwich is always a winner.

Having stayed at Coolangatta numerous times I think you will be pushing it at 10ish for a meal as usually the cut of time is 9.30pm. Try

My flight is arriving in Coolangatta but I'm actually staying at Crowne Plaza between Broadbeach and Surfers, hope more restaurants are open in those areas.

You should definately find something suitable in either Broadbeach and Surfers. But if you go to the Casino in Broadbeach they have some restaurants going around the clock.
