I've been to the Milton restaurant and this is just as good. The family-run business serves good ol' Italian great for adults and children. Very kid-friendly. They have nightly special and nice kids menu (good variety). Perfect spot on the Esplanade, which is by the beach. Watch the sunset too if you dine at the right time. Very friendly service. Won't hesitate to come back again.

Not very impressed with this café, stopped in on Monday for lunch and the waiter had no personality, showed us to our table and then didn't come back for about 20 min even to take out drink order.
When he did return he just stood at our table and didn't say a word with a scowl on his face. We assumed he was there to take our drink and lunch order.
The lunch took a long time to come out, there were only 2 other tables of guests so not very busy.
We were told the burners had broken down and the chips had to be cooked in the fry pan. I think if he had told us this earlier and said there would be a delay that would be better customer service. The actual food was good.

Stayed at Rumba Beach Resort where the restaurant advertises promotions in its lifts. The restaurant is based at street level next to the resort. On Tuesdays they advertise a 1/2 price pizza and movie deal for families. When you get there, sit down and start to order they tell you it is for a takeaway pizza only. Most people get up and leave or proceed to order a takeaway which is probably what we should have done. However we stayed and endured very slow service, poor quality food and an expensive bill.

Needless to state the advertising has no mention of a takeaway only deal, it looks like the manager decides whether they can be bothered to honour the deal or not depending on how they feel on the night.

Best avoid this restaurant and go to the Hogs Breath Café further down the road where at least you will get value for money and far superior service.

We stumbled across this cafe/restaurant when The Coffee Club wasn't open one public holiday. We haven't looked back. We are regulars here and often enjoyed Sunday breakfasts as both my husband and I work in Brisbane. We've eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and even have done breakfast and dinner on the same day. Dinner is more formal and on the higher end of the budget but well worth it. La Dolce Vita is such a beautiful place that we even decided to have our mid week wedding reception there. The view is awesome, but make sure that you get in estly on weekends ad it often gets busy and you will have to sit inside and miss out on most of the view. We are so sad to leave the coast but will always come back to La Dolce Vita when we can.
