First visit for me and I could not have been more impressed. Great decor and the food and service was excellent. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting something better than your average restaurant meal.

“Heaven on a plate”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Elegant decor, sensational food, wonderful hostess with warm and friendly staff and there we were at Allure enjoying the most amazing French cuisine. When you visit the Gold Coast this is a not to be missed experience. This delightful restaurant is tucked away in Currumbin and serves 5 star food up there with the best. The presentation of dishes was exceptional and the warm little tasting of soup on arrival began what was a diner's delight. Do yourself a favor and visit next time you are looking for somewhere intimate and lovely for an amazing French experience.

“Still as good as ever!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I had my birthday dinner at Allure in April and hadn't been there for about 18 months. What can I say, Brad & Cheryl continue after all these years to provide a stunning service and delectable food. This is the perfect place for a special occasion on the southern end of the Gold Coast.

“Consistently Brilliant!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

It is away such a pleasure to dine at the very beautiful Allure on Currumbin.

Elegantly understated yet beautifully appointed, this is the place to be if you want a beautiful, intimate, delicious, and satisfying (to all the senses) meal. Be it a special occasion, or a relaxed catch-up this is definitely the place to go.

Whilst every dish we've sampled has been nothing short of superb, there are two dishes that keep us coming back for more (and more and more...).

The beautifully presented and sumptuously superb duck risotto with asparagus, porcini and truffle oil is my all-time favourite - and on this occasion this was no exception. A generous serve of beautifully soft and deliciously rich duck risotto always leaves me feeling deeply satisfied. This dish is amazing - with layered flavours, tremendous balance, complimentary textures, and a lovely finish. Not at all creamy, its beautifully contrasted and yet surprisingly complimented by a lovely, sharp and crumbly grano padano.

My second favourite dish (and my dining partner's favourite dish) is the always popular and exquisitely presented duck served with black cherry - otherwise known as Duck Cerise. This dish away seems so exotic to me (and out of my reach in terms of cooking at home) however the exceptionally talented Chef (Brad) consistently and reliably turns out this beautiful dish time after time. I've had this served with an exceptionally smooth truffle mash, and also at different times very simply sautéed potatoes. Balanced against beautiful crunchy snow peas and asparagus this is always a winner. So indulgent!

Always such a pleasure!! I can't wait for next visit. Thanks Brad and the team for our favourite restaurant destination!

Hi 1-Nic-Rob-1

It sounds like the duck is a winner - however Brad cooks it! And I couldn't agree more. Brad has mastered cooking duck and it is always superb (as are most things he cooks).

Thank you for your repeat custom. We enjoy having you dine with us and it is very appreciated when you write us such a lovely review or tell you friends about us.

Thanks again.

Until Next time

“The best ever!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is the best restaurant we have ever dined at! Service was delightful not pretentious but very thorough. The food is amazing, obviously prepared with passion. All meals were complimented with specially selected vegetables. I had the duck ...OMG only one little bone in half a duck and so tender. The flavor was amazing and I chose the cherry sauce. My partner had the bugs...tender, sweet and such a huge serve. We shared oysters in a mixed platter to start and the scallops and pork belly. For desert we just had to share the beautiful sorbet basket. Thank you to the owners of Allure for providing an experience that is hard to find. We will definitely be back!
