    The Good Wolf 0

    Shop 3, Miami Village Shopping Centre, 110 Mountainview Ave., Miami 4220

    “An old man tells his grandson one evening that there is a battle raging inside him, inside all of us. A terrible battle between two wolves… The child asks, ‘Who will win?’ The grandfather answers simply, ‘The one you feed.’” – Unknown source (as quoted in ‘Two Wolves’ by Tristan Bancks)   We’ve long been […]

    The Loose Moose Tap & Grill House 0

    75 Surf Parade, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    Step inside The Loose Moose and you feel like it’s been there forever. Or maybe it just should have been! There’s an ‘old but new’ feel to the joint – a heady mix of Romania’s steampunk Enigma Bar and a Canadian taphouse that belongs in both the Old and New World, its detail meticulously aged […]

    Junction at Coomera 1

    Coomera Square, Cnr Days Rd & Old Coast Rd, Coomera

    Just as business is not always about profit, so the hospitality industry is not only about food and wine. It’s also about making people feel welcome and a part of something, about value-adding to the community and giving something back. Junction is a pleasant café housed on one end of the Coomera Square Shopping Centre. […]

    Brady’s Fish 0

    Q1 (access from arcade), 9 Hamilton Ave., Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217

    Winter’s just the weather for fish and chips! After a day at the beach, or as a Sunday night family special, the question remains: where’s the best fish and chips in town? One of the Gold Coast’s best chefs, UK-born James Brady, has just opened a fish and chip shop under the iconic Q1 in […]

    Ubud Food Festival 2016 2

    Few places in the world are a more beautiful setting for a food festival than Ubud, so building a holiday around this festival was an opportunity not to be missed. Returning for its second year from 27-29 May this year, the three-day Ubud Food Festival was bursting with local flavours and produce, bringing together more […]

    Gemellini 0

    2247 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach, Queensland 4218

    The Carney brothers, owners of Gemelli, waited some time before opening their second venue, Gemellini. But the wait was well worth it! Nobby’s ‘Little Twin’, as the name means, is a more relaxed and intimate venue than its older more worldly-wise Broadbeach sibling. Feeling fashionably well-established, the venue yawns back lazily from the street, a […]

    Eat Local – Book review 0

    Eat Local – Food, Farming and Conversation in the Scenic Rim By Brenda Fawdon & Christine Sharp We’re mad about real food. The sort that is grown by local farmers or in home and community gardens, the produce arriving in our kitchen after travelling minimum food miles. There’s something grounded about scrubbing soil off vegies […]

    Bam Bam Bakehouse 0

    Shop 2, 2519 – 2521 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach, Queensland 4218

    Despite the reference in its name, there’s nothing ‘Stone Age’ about Bam Bam Bakehouse. Nor anything so deep; it’s just the childhood chant of owners Ursula and Ben Watts’ young son. Cute? Yes. Symbolic? Yes. In more ways than one, Bam Bam Bakehouse marks the ‘coming of age’ of The Paddock Bakery crew, who have […]

    Dinner at Nobby’s Beach 0

    The Nobby Beach precinct has become a fertile breeding ground for restaurateurs. Avoiding the rent of more populous suburbs in the middle of the coast, prospective owners have headed south. Coffee shops and eateries now dot the Gold Coast Highway, accumulating in a worthy lump of eateries along the 400-metre-long Nobby Beach strip. Nobby Beach […]

    The Fish Emporium 0

    Capri on Via Roma, Isle of Capri, Queensland 4217

    There are times when I hanker for great fish; something more than a battered bundle of joy wrapped in paper with crispy chips – that’s another delight entirely. No, I want the real thing, unadulterated; a perfectly cooked buttery piece of coral trout or red emperor, or the indulgence of tasting the salty brine of […]

    Delizioso 0

    Level 1, The Strand Shopping Centre, 72 – 80 Marine Parade, Coolangatta

    Delicious by name, delicious to the palate, it’s fabulous to have great Italian restaurant on the southern end of the Gold Coast. Finally! Delizioso opened in The Strand in early 2016, bringing modern Italian dining to Coolangatta. Snapping up an upstairs possie overlooking the beach, owner and multi-award winning head chef Brad Nascone says it’s […]

    7/60 Santa Cruz Boulevard, Clear Island Waters, Queensland 4228

    Dreams sometimes come true. At least that’s the case for husband and wife team Monica Tjong and Gabriele Pirotta. The pair had always dreamed that one day they might own a little café in the ‘burbs. Gabriele, a chef in Italy before he emigrated to Australia about seven years ago, waited for his residency before […]

    Penfolds Dinner at The Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort 0

    Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, Manor Circle, Sanctuary Cove, Hope Island Queensland 4212

    Christopher Rawson Penfold would have been proud. Little could he have imagined, when he established his vineyard from cuttings in 1844 on the slopes of Magill, South Australia, that Penfolds would become the most recognised wine label in the world. Sipping the 2002 Grange Hermitage as we dine on an exceptional meal, it’s hard to […]

    1 Town Centre Drive, Helensvale

    As the dust settles on NightQuarter’s opening, it’s easy to see the entertainment precinct’s many benefits to the Gold Coast. Its concert calendar is a huge boost to local talent, and the opening of NightQuarter’s VIP space in May 2016 adds a new dimension to the entertainment experience. ‘The Gallery’, as the space is called, […]

    Outrigger Resort, 2007 Gold Coast Highway, Miami, Queensland 4220

    “You must be so pleased to have both your daughters under one roof,” we comment to Alan Yap as we chat over our meal. The owner of Miami Rice doubles up in laughter. “My daughters,” he says shaking his head, “they’re so different!” After many years with just Alan and daughter Shoko running Highland Park […]

    Retro Refuel 0

    Every country town used to have a Niagara Café or the equivalent. Mostly owned by Greeks or Italians, they were the place we relied on in the 70s for fast food, a meeting place for farmers’ wives and, besides the Chinese takeaway, the obvious choice for under 18s to meet for a ‘date’ before the […]
