Dined a few months ago and absolutely loved it! Without doubt, the best fine dining restaurant on the coast. Came back to gold coast a few weeks ago and could not get a booking. Still dreaming of the tasty food from my last visit!!

“Heaven On a Plate”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We booked this restaurant on word of mouth recommendation as been very special. We decided Seaduction would be the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Seaduction is situated on the second floor of the Sea Temple Hotel in the newly erected Soul Building on the waterfront at Surfers Paradise. You get to the restaurant via a sweeping marble staircase which is a bit of wow.The décor was rich, warm and sumptuous We had a wonderful waitress who knew the menu well and was able to give recommendations. This would be the ideal restaurant for a romantic evening for 2, but also great for dinner with close friends. We were a party of 3, all with discerning tastes. We had brought a very special bottle of Champagne over from New Zealand to mark the occasion, and had requested in advance if it could be served. They were happy to accommodate our special request with an appropriate corkage fee. They have an extensive wine list themselves but were happy to make an exception for us . For the Entrée we all shared Pata Negra which is a very special ham served with crusty bread. It is from a special black hoofed swine which is fed for the duration of its life on acorns. Our friend had sampled this before, but for us it was a first. It was delicious and a perfect starter. My husband had the Sous Vide Duck Breast and my Friend and myself had the Poele Chicken Breast . We ordered and shared 3 side dishes, Broccolini with toasted almonds; creamed, truffled, mashed desiree potato and the rocket salad with walnuts and parmesan. The Food was creatively and beautifully presented and melt in your mouth delicious. After this veritable feast, we had no room for dessert. My husband who has a sweet tooth found no room either. A lovely touch at the end was a scripted Chocolate Happy Anniversary on a plate with two mini coconut biscuits. Sea Temple has recently joined the Accor Group , so worth while taking your A Card. A Phenomenal 5 star experience.

“Thank you so much for making an important night spectacular”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I would like to thank the staff of Seaduction for making my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversay a wonderful experience. The Seaduction Degustation was the perfect way to celebrate. The food was amazing and the wines a true complement. The service was impeccible. The extra plate of chocoate Happy Anniversary and macaroons a lovely touch. My parents were then surprised with the firework display (a very happy coincident - thank you Gold Coast) from the window table.
Having to organise this from interstate I want to thank the staff again for all their help and friendly service.

“There can only be 5 stars reserved for here”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Absolutely undoubtedly the finest dining experience on the Gold Coast.

The food is exquisite and beautifully presented. The wine list is comprehensive .

The atmosphere and views are incredible (book a window seat)

The Maitre'd and waitress we had were professional and efficient.

It has been a long long time since we have been to a restaurant as interesting and desirable as this. Looking forward to returning.

“An experience not to be missed!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

When was the last time I went to a restaurant that had amazing gastronomical food, beautiful view, phenomenal service and atmosphere not to mention carpet and comfortable furniture? Never have I been to a restaurant that offers all of the above for the going rate in which is Seaduction. The phenomenal view of Seaduction is nearly as grand as the tasting menu which is on offer. Varied with flavors, textures and methods of cooking this far from traditional menu is a magnificent showcase of contemporary Australian Cuisine at it's utmost best! Each dish is memorable with well balanced and intricate flavors not to mention freshness of the ingredients is rather impressive. The al a carte menu offers something for everyone however do try the degustation as you wont be disappointed. The dessert menu offers an array of options which are reasonably priced and quite impressive. The art of deconstruction is endorsed in the dessert menu which creates an element of surprise and allows the flavors shine individually but also phenomenal together. I highly recommend Seaduction not only for its menu and atmosphere but also staff. The service was outstanding with each waiter confidently knowing the menu not mention great assistance with matching wines. Staff can make or break a dining experience and this time they fulifiled my expectations and more!
