Life & Style Weekend - - ESCAPE -

The Gold Coast arts and cul­tural scene isn’t the only thing on the Gold Coast to have ex­ploded in re­cent years.

Their food scene has also taken off.

Here are sev­eral restau­rants you must check out on your next visit to the Gold Coast:

The Star Casino

The re­cently ren­o­vated Star Casino fea­tures sev­eral out­stand­ing bars and restau­rants.

Stand­outs in­clude Ja­pa­nese res­tau­rant Kiy­omi (or­der the set menu for a taste of ev­ery­thing), Nine­teen (per­fect for cock­tails with a stun­ning view of the Gold Coast) and Gar­den Kitchen and Bar.


Just across the road from The Star Casino is the Or­a­cle ho­tel com­plex.

Con­nected to the com­plex are about a dozen restau­rants in­clud­ing:

The Cuban Bar and Lounge of­fers a taste of Ha­vana in Broad­beach, with tasty dishes such as Latin Amer­i­can salmon ce­viche and honey cin­na­mon pork belly.

Ma­masan was one of the first Asian fu­sion restau­rants on the Gold Coast and now of­fers dozens of Asian favourites with a twist, such as soft-shell crab bao and sichuan salted duck.

The So­cial Eat­ing House has a fo­cus on shared plates.

Their desserts, such as the milk cho­co­late and peanut but­ter mar­quise, as well as the white cho­co­late and lemon cheese­cake mousse cigar, are just in­cred­i­ble. The Tropic - Burleigh Pav­il­ion

Fea­tur­ing stun­ning views of the Pa­cific Ocean (es­pe­cially at sun­set) The Tropic, at the re­cently ren­o­vated Burleigh Pav­il­ion, is prob­a­bly the best lo­ca­tion for a cock­tail and some de­li­cious food.

Make sure to ask for a ta­ble right on the wa­ter for the best views.


Re­cently ren­o­vated, Sand­bar at Surfers Par­adise fea­tures a menu full of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents crafted by a world-renowned ex­ec­u­tive chef.

It’s the per­fect spot for break­fast and fea­tures tasty items such as the lox bagel, freshly squeezed juices and lux­u­ri­ous cof­fee. It’s also open for lunch and din­ner with a wide va­ri­ety of menu op­tions.
