  • Great seafood is one of the best meals we can eat. So we're rejoicing that Moana has opened, bringing us fresh, beautifully presented seafood dishes. From very affordable week day dining to date night or a big occasion, Moana brings us a feast. Don't let this experience slip away. Check it out! @moanarestaurantandbar
  • We're crazy 😜 about Cycho's Buffalo Wings with their international flavours from holiday destinations. Now we can indulge any time at their new restaurant 🍴 at Australia Fair Metro, Southport. Cycho's wings + Softshell crab burger = heaven! Check out the review on our website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Elk's rustic interior is a great foil for its luxe all-day fare. Pork belly, Aged cheddar croquettes and Violet crumble waffles...Elk's food never disappoints. Great for a catchup with foodie friends @goldcoastfoodie and @thefoodhedonist
  • Novotel Surfers Paradise launched their all-day dining venue BLVD Cafe and Bar last night. With a great location, 20% location and daily Happy Hour there are plenty of reasons to party!
  • Soft polenta, I've been missing you! At Bambino's, bacon-wrapped chicken rests on a pillow of fluffy polenta with napoli sauce, the freshest beef carpaccio is dressed in EVO and capers and arancini are simply divine! A song for entertainment and on the table, @bambinoitalian is well worth a visit.
  • We've been away travelling from St Petersburg to Ireland, but now we're on the way home. Missed my foodie friends! Looking forward to fresh Gold Coast food, like Chef Jules's cooking at Mr PP's. Bring on great food and wine, enjoyed with even better company!
  • New Zealand, where flights of wine accompany food cooked in wine barrels, where seafood comes fresh from the ocean beyond the front door, and vineyards tempt us with the best tasting plates. Read about our South Island road trip on our website foodgoldcoast.com.au
  • Lobster from a roadside caravan in Lonely Planet's Top 💯, winery tastings in a tiny church, lunch overlooking the inlet, or seafood chowder on a windswept coast...we find all these and more on New Zealand's South Island. Read more on our website foodgoldcoast.com.au
