The Little Plate is a great addition to the Burleigh Heads area restaurant scene. Everyone likes to give everything a 4 or 5 star rating here but this is really nice food, freshly prepared by a real chef. I would give it 4 stars rather than 5 because it is great for the Gold Coast (we are not in Paris) and for the genre that it is- really lovely casual food.
They called to let us know when an earlier table became available and were very patient when we were the last table to go. We had 2 chefs at the table and they cleaned their plates. This is a chef owned place unlike most of the restaurants in Burleigh Heads, and it is much more reasonably priced than the other local chef owned options. The food is *much* better than some other highly rated local options. I would say this is the best local restaurant that is not very expensive.
I really enjoyed the crab cakes and pork belly but all the small plates were nice. I don't believe in corn tortillas that aren't fried but that's my personal issue.
We tried to go back the next week but they were on vacation, so we will definitely return later.
Front of house staff could use a bit of training to be more familiar with the menu but our server was very nice. The Bloody Mary could use a tweak.
Now if the nail salon between the two parts of the restaurant would go they would be all set.
Great job ladies! We are happy to have you in the neighborhood.
