    Rare Delights – A Month of Truffles at Cucina Vivo 0

    Jupiters Gold Coast, Broadbeach Island, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    It’s winter, which means it’s the month for truffles, and we’re heading to Cucina Vivo in Jupiter’s Hotel & Casino to enjoy a ‘truffle feast’. It’s been a slow love affair for me. To be perfectly honest, you’d never pick a truffle for a first date! A large, darkish blob covered in wart-like nodules hiding […]

    N3 Tapas Bar 0

    Shop 33, Marine Mirage, 74 Seaworld Drive, Main Beach, Queensland 4217

    There are many ways to choose where you want to dine: food, vibe, service, friends, location. For us, location is the most negotiable, and food the least so. If the food is ordinary (or worse), nothing else can make up. Smash the food, service and atmosphere off the charts and you’re on a winner. N3 […]

    Griffith Street Larder 0

    Shop 9, The Strand, 85 Griffith Street, Coolangatta, Queensland 4225

    Sometimes a new owner can bring a breath of fresh air into a place. That’s the feeling we get with Griffith Street Larder. Early in 2016, Kylie and Dennis Bastos settled on the Gold Coast leaving Melbourne’s cold winters behind. Their purchase of the already successful Larder, formerly owned by the crew from Blackboard Coffee, […]

    Taste of Kingscliff and Tweed Coast 2

    Salt Village, 1 Bells Boulevard, Kingscliff, NSW 2847

    Do you know where your food is grown? When you tuck into that pitaya bowl surrounded by fruit, do you know which ‘rock star’ farmer harvested it for you?

    Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurants, Gold Coast 3

    The vegetarian dining scene has flourished during the past few years, particularly on the southern end of the Gold Coast. Elsewhere on this site we’ve looked at food trends – the growing awareness of provenance and sustainability, education and healthier food habits. Gone are the days when ordering a vegetarian meal drew the expectation of […]

    GreenHouse Canteen + Bar 0

    1916 Gold Coast Hwy, Miami, Queensland 4220

    Veganism is out! Loud, bold and proud! “Just because you’re vegan, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time,” GreenHouse Factory co-owner Natalie Evans told us. Realising that vegans and vegetarians were suffering from a serious lack of dining choices on the coast, Natalie opened the GreenHouse Factory as the sun arose on 2014. […]

    Waterways Village Shopping Centre, Shop 4/64 Karbunya Street, Mermaid Waters, Queensland 4218

    We’d been watching the work progress, week by week, as Jess Winters and her partner Peter Tutton hammered and drilled to complete their new venture, Double Barrel Kitchen in the Waterways Village Shopping Centre, Miami.

    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 […]

    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. […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
