“Yummo. I want to go back.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We had the degustation with the wine match. The food was gloriuse and the service impeccable. We only had a short amount of time because of a baby sitter. As soon as we completed one course it was cleared and the next was brought out promptly. It was beautifully plated and taste was divine. I would recommend to anyone who wants a romantic night with nice food.

“A great find on the Goldie”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This was our 2nd visit to Little Truffle. The first time, the place was quite empty. This friday night it was very full, and the lower section was packed, making the place a little more noisy than we would have liked at the start. As people started, the place quietened down though :)

Great food. The menu hasnt changed much in a year, but then again, if you do something great, stick with it.

I had the scallops with blackpudding and puree, the Barramundi and the warm chocolate pudding. All were great quality. Standout dish for everyone else were the tortellini.

Works out at around $100 a head for 3 courses and sharing a bottle of wine and a couple of dessert wines. I think this is good for what you get.

Highly recommend.... Bookings essential too.

“A little bit of Melbourne”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via Local Picks

This place is a delight, ambience and flair that make you think this must be Melbourne. To find this on the Gold coast is rare.

Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

“Very non-Gold Coast - and that's a good thing!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

You would never even notice this restaurant from the street, it's on the main Gold Coast highway but is anything but GC.

My fiance and I enjoyed a Saturday night meal here, on a weekend away down the coast from Brisbane. I had heard good things, and we enjoyed a lovely meal.

We both went for the $60 set menu dinner. My stuffed fried squash blossoms were delicious, and the pork belly was also good. I must admit that the chicken was a bit dry for mains, the sauce and side dishes were a bit bland - nothing to write home about. However, at that price it didn't matter.

The crowning delight was dessert - my raspberry souffle with white chocolate sauce was heavenly!

Unobtrusive service, no noise from outside, all together a lovely place to eat.

“fabulous evening”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Celebrated my birthday saturday evening with family in little truffles private dining room. The food, the ambience, the wait staff were all absolutely wonderful. Daniel is to be commended on the thought he has put into this particular room, there were 10 guests and room was just perfect. Each course was delicious. Our waiter (Martin) could not have been better, friendly and totally professional and has a wonderful voice (singing) as well. This restaurant is definitely a must!!!!
