Watermark Hotel, 3032 Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise
The chefs at Waves aim to keep their dishes dynamic and seasonally themed, but it is the desserts that steal the show — all are made in-house by the hotel’s pastry chefs and there is that most ingenious invention of modern fluid mechanics, a chocolate fountain. “Many diners are simply stunned by the colour, creativity and presentation on the dessert buffet,” director of operations Paul Stewart says. Look out for Waves’ regular “artisan specials”. Celebrate US Independence Day from Monday to Sunday with American fare and for the week starting July 14 indulge in French delights to mark Bastille Day.
