“best seafood in long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Wanted to review Yellowfin as i had a work function there recently. There were only 6 of us in our group so it was more a special occasion. And what a special night it was. The boss had kilpatrick oysters and steak and was most impressed which is saying something. The rest of us had fish; all gave big thumbs up. My snapper was to die for. Service was friendly and our waiter was rushed off his feet as it was very busy. Only thing is they dont have toilets; they are shared with 2 other restaurants. Overall fantastic night out; keep up the good work

“DISAPPOINTING!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

A year ago we had a fine meal at the Yellowfin restaurant in Broadbeach. This year we booked for 7 pm but when we got there at 7:05 there were no tables available on the terrace which is what we specified when making the reservation. A restaurant that does not respect its reservations will never see us again!!!

Dear Franc-Rapallo,
A sincere thank you to you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor and also for mentioning that you enjoyed your first dining experience so much that you decided to come back. Please accept our apologies for letting you down with not being able to offer the table that you requested. Unfortunately on occasion we are not able to promise a certain table or guarantee a certain section will be available to every guest that wants them on our busiest nights as there are other factors that determine which tables are going to be available such as who has booked first, number of guests requesting a certain section or perhaps even an earlier booking not finishing their meals in time for a requested table to be free. I hope that you can understand - we definitely do our best to accomodate all seating/table requests but on some occasions we are sadly not able to ensure every guest gets the table they have requested 100% of the time.
We would really love to see you back at Yellowfin on your next visit to Broadbeach and I would be glad to handle the details of your future reservations for you personally so that I can do what I can to make it up to you with the best table we have :) please contact me directly at justine@yellowfinrestaurant.com.au.
Kind regards

“Amazing fresh seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

7 of us had 2 seafood platters. Amazing coz we had crayfish, crabs, and so much more! The garlic prawns deserve a special mention and the oysters were fresh and creamy. Will definitely come back for more.

“fresh seafood was delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Lunch on tuesday was a long one at yellowfin seafood restaurant. We ate well and the service was pretty good too. Bianca and i had the seafod platter which is a rarity for us. We normally just go fresh fish. But we are on holidays and yes it was to be the seafood platter. And a darn good decision. I must say we started off with fresh oysters to get us in the mood and they were divine. Then the platter. More oysters, fresh prawns, salt and pepper calamari, fish, scallops, salads..i think we all get the drift. More scallops please next time. They were so good and very large and plump. We finished off with a banoffie pie which i have not had in more than 10 years. Maybe 20 years. And just like mama used to make it. Delish for sure. A cocktail to finish pretty well finished us. A great afternoon and a great way to start the evening.
