Restaurant and Cafè located on Cavil Avenue,the most popular main street of Surfers Paradise, a place in line with the average of the restaurants in that area, the service is quick and the prices are great. Very convenient is the lunch special, which offers a huge variety of different choice from 10 to 15 dollars.
The staff is young and very helpfully, the food is good but could be better.
It is just 50 meters away from the beach.

Mum, Dad and our 4 kids get off an early morning flight feeling pretty peckish with a couple of hours to kill. 3 x pancakes for the kids were good, 1 x raisin toast for last child was forgotten but the disgust really started next...My 'enormous' breaky lacked any sort of enormity for the price, asked how I would like my eggs, i said poached soft - arrived poached hard, mushrooms nothing short of cardboard. My wife had salmon and eggs - same deal with her eggs but when cutting through salmon, a piece of dirty plastic was found attached; the size of a cheese slice plastic...WOW! The waiter seem genuinely embarrassed about the 'muck on plates', he told the 'so-called' cook and the lady serving drinks but nothing was offered up as a replacement, discount or any sort of empathy. Make your own decision before eating at this place - the health authorities need to be all over this one - ABSOLUTE SHOCKER BILLY BAXTER – VERY POOR STANDARDS.

Do look for discount vouchers in gold coast tour guide for greater value for money. Overall, the food and location are good.

Family of seven went here for lunch, the service was very bad, food less than ordinary and overall a waste of money. It is not an expensive place but that is not the point. The chips that came with our meals had been cooked a very long time ago, the salad and buns for the hamburger and roast and salad for the steak sandwich had also been sitting waiting for the meat. They did cook some fresh chips, the nachos were very only average, who can stuff up nachos, this place can and the child serve of spag. bol. came after the rest of us were finished eating! Very very poor, don't bother going here.
