Hands down our favourite restaurant on the Coast. Exceptional food, great service, awesome cocktail and wine selection. Ideally you need to book to get a table as they are usually booked out in advance, but if you haven't thought that far ahead, turn up and ask for a seat at the kitchen or the bar - these are not booked and you might be lucky to get a seat. The lamb shoulder is the best we have ever had! Located on Oracle Boulevard. To get here from Peninsula: Walk - just over 3km Tram - from Surfers Paradise tram station (150 metres from Peninsula) to Broadbeach North tram station - then 400 metres walk Uber or taxi straight to the door

Neighbourhoods
Surfers is all about the beach! There is a fabulous walking track from the Peninsula all the way to Main Beach - fully paved and lit at night so it is level and safe. You will find people walking, running, skateboarding, skating and scootering along here all day and much of the night. It is such a beautiful way to enjoy the beachfront without having to get your feet sandy! Beachfront markets are held in the evening here every weekend too. There is a good selection of well-known fast food restaurants, like Maccas, KFC, Gomez, Grilled in Cavill Mall for easy eats. But there are also some fab casual dining venues such as the Surf Club, The Island, QT Hotel restaurants, Surfers Pavilion and Hyde Paradiso. Add to this the selection of restaurants and cafes at the Soul Boardwalk and you have nearly every cuisine covered! The Island is also a great destination with cool open air bar. During the year there are loads of activities and festivals held along the Surfers Paradise beachfront - check out this website to see what's on https://www.wearegoldcoast.com.au/whats-on/see-whats-on

This is the best place for food, shopping and gambling! The Oracle restaurants are our favourites - a great selection there. Pacific Fair for shopping cannot be beaten! And of course the Star Casino dishes up the entertainment with 24 hour casino, shows, restaurants and one of our favourite roof top bars - Nineteen.

Main Beach is the more sleepy but stylish neighbour. A beautiful beach with Southport Surf Club offering incredible views over the beach while enjoying some delicious food and a cold beer. Marina Mirage provides some sophisticated shopping and excellent dining - our favourite is Glass Dining looking out over the Broadwater and marina. Or pop next door to the Versace Hotel lobby bar for a cocktail, champagne or high tea. Also try the Southport Yacht Club to enjoy relaxed dining over the marina. Tedder Ave is the boutique-style main street of Main Beach where you can find local dining at it's best - Shuck is a long-time favourite of ours. Main Beach also offers the spit - where you drive out to where the river meets the ocean - great spots to sit and contemplate, or to have some private space for a picnic with a view. Seaworld is located on the way to the spit - it's a great day out for the family.
