Breakthrough restaurants on the Gold Coast
Given that over 12 million tourists flock to Australia’s Gold Coast each year, it’s no surprise that this stunning location in Queensland has developed an impressive array of food outlets.
From deluxe restaurants offering a thought-provoking take on fine dining, to some quick and easy food options to take on the beach, there have been a handful of food outlets that have managed to edge just ahead of the competition.
It’s been great to see how old favourites like Mario’s in Broadbeach have reemerged with a fresh new look to fit in with the developments at the nearby mall. But their loyal customers will be reassured to find that the menu has stayed faithful to the one that’s provided classic Italian tastes for the past 27 years – with the addition of new favourites like a burrata entree and mouthwatering osso bucco veal shanks.
One of the more striking new additions in the Broadbeach is the incredible Kiyomi restaurant. This delicious eatery has employed one of Australia’s best sushi chefs to ensure that the complex tastes of Japanese cuisine are faithfully rendered in this stylish restaurant that’s already become a big hit since it opened its doors in 2014.
Further up the coast in Surfer’s Paradise there’s an equally impressive selection of outlets ranging from the acclaimed Thai eatery, Chaopraya, to the excellent Shiraz Persian restaurant. What’s great is that many of the restaurants have teamed up with Deliveroo to ensure that we can enjoy a fine dining at home, in our hotel rooms, or even on the beach.
Mermaid Beach has also been welcoming food tastes from around the world with the likes of Bonita Bonita becoming one of the best places on the Gold Coast to try Mexican food. And don’t miss out on the Little Truffle Dining Room for an old-school take on fine dining complete with candelabras and chandeliers to accompany the delicious fusion of Australian and Europe cuisines.
And finally, seeing as the Gold Coast is exceptionally positioned to try out the freshest in seafood produce, we couldn’t miss The Fish House out of the shortlist. This sophisticated yet relaxed place in Burleigh Heads is a real treat for seafood fans as it keeps things simple so that you can focus on the delights of coral trout, blue eye trevalla and swordfish.
So with a range of fine dining and food delivery options to try out, it’s clear why the Gold Coast has become such a foodie hotspot.
