  • Boom boom 6

    Boom Boom Burgers 0

    7-9 Burra Street, Chevron Island, Queensland 4217

    Boom boom! With the bang of a proverbial drum, Boom Boom has opened. Owned by seasoned restaurateurs Meyjitte Boughenout, former owner of Absynthe French Restaurant, and Chef Arnaud Ollivier, this playful little French restaurant raises the bar on the Gold Coast burger scene. The interior, reworked in vintage cartoons and exposed brickwork, would tell us […]

  • Mecca Bah 20B

    Mecca Bah Gold Coast 0

    3 Oracle Boulevard, Broadbeach, Queensland, 4218

    Food and love…even the mention of Mecca Bah brings me warm memories of a first date, journeys to far distant lands, exotic and elusive, but loaded with promise. Once more, I’m unable to resist its charm. Mecca Bah Gold Coast forms an essential piece of the multicultural mosaic of Oracle Boulevard, Broadbeach. In this sophisticated […]

  • Brooklyn Depot 9

    Brooklyn Depot 0

    T2, The 4217, 10 Beach Road, Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217

    Burgers are taking the Gold Coast by storm. They come in all shapes and sizes, from sliders to giant mamas, from the humble fish and chip shop soft bun filled with a mince patty, lettuce and tomato to a sweet brioche wonder housing gourmet delights. Everyone’s onto them. Of course, it didn’t take long for […]

  • Great Greek 1

    The Great Greek Kafé 0

    151 Scarborough Street, Southport, Queensland 4215

    Mention a trip to Greece and eyes light up. Thanks to television docos, the mere mention of Greece brings visions of blue and white clad tavernas, of traditional music, diners with arms interlaced dancing barefoot in the sand beside a crystal blue sea… Admittedly, these scenes have been planted by movies such as Shirley Valentine, […]

  • Obsessions 2B

    Obsessions on Chevron 0

    37 Thomas Drive, Chevron Island, Queensland 4217

    “What is your obsession?” It’s the question I put to Chris Vakanas, owner of Obsessions restaurant on Chevron Island. “Food. Definitely food!” he replies, his eyes sparkling. Many of us could concur with this response. We may live other lives, do other jobs, but bring out a photo of a magnificent piece of cake or […]

    A Nepalese dinner at The Intercontinental, Sanctuary Cove 0

    The Fireplace Restaurant, Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, Manor Circle, Sanctuary Cove, Hope Island Queensland 4212

    It was a dinner we’d looked forward to with great anticipation; a cultural event where one of our favourite chefs would share with us the food of his homeland and his life journey. “I would love to invite you and a guest to join me on a culinary journey, sharing with you flavours and recipes […]

  • Spaghetti & Jazz 4

    Spaghetti & Jazz 0

    30 – 34 Commerce Drive, Robina, Queensland 4226

    Spaghetti & Jazz: the name may be quirky, but the restaurant is not. Situated on the ground level of a set of suburban shops in Robina, Spaghetti & Jazz is not a ‘stumble upon’ restaurant. Rather than relying on tourist dollars, the restaurant’s success is based on the return custom of patrons who appreciate the […]

    Burleigh Social 2

    2 Hibiscus Lane, Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4218

    ‘When you open your doors, it will be two years until you’ve really established yourself and started making a profit.’ That used to be the common advice for new business owners; that was until the advent of social media! After years in the Hospitality industry, including establishing eateries for other people, Jarrod Barnett, together with […]

  • Donto Sapporo 5

    Donto Sapporo 0

    2763 Gold Coast Highway, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    For a full Japanese dining experience, few restaurants on the coast transport you away to another time and place as effectively as Donto Sapporo. Named after Sapporo, the capital city of Hokkaido, Donto Sapporo opened in 1990. Located away from the retail hub of Broadbeach yet still on the highway, the restaurant occupies the ground […]

    Paradox Coffee Roasters 0

    10 Beach Road, Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217

    First touted as a destination inspired by international precincts such as New York’s Chelsea Food Market, The 4217 has spent two years in the construction phase, traffic passing around it as it slept and grew. Then, just as our attention was averted, the soft opening had taken place. Chrysalis-like, the shops are opening one by […]

  • Big Sur 6

    Big Sur Coffee 0

    9/107 Turpin Road, Labrador, Queensland

    Carmel is one of my favourite places on the world. It’s got that old school charm oozing from its veins, its sleepiness slouched down the hill knowing that it’s arrived. Carmel doesn’t have to try to impress. It just IS. Big Sur is almost there. Just south of Carmel, it’s a wild peninsula set apart […]

    Wazen 0

    1/33 Tallebudgera Creek Road, West Burleigh, Queensland 4220

    You know how it is… you’ve tried to choose a healthy meal, only to find you’re half starving at the end of it. Perhaps you’d decided on a couple of share plates and drawn the shortest straw, or maybe that plate of sashimi cost $28 for five pieces of fish? Then you weren’t at Wazen. […]

    Pickled Pig Brewery 0

    18 Industry Drive, Tweed Heads South, NSW 2486

    I glance at the business card in my hand. Paul Brewer. Pickled Pig Brewery. I don’t know what’s more implausible – a brewer named Paul Brewer, or the whimsical name ‘Pickled Pig’. Is this for real? Absolutely! In fact it’s one of our few local craft breweries, located in Tweed Heads, making chemical-free, preservative-free ‘no […]

    2448 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach, Queensland 4218

    Hidden away behind a wrought iron fence and garden, Pasha’s is Queensland’s oldest Middle Eastern restaurant. In 1991, Ertan Mustafa sold Pasha’s in Newtown, the first Turkish restaurant in Australia, to establish Pasha’s as his family business on the Gold Coast.
