1. Songbirds in the Forest – Winner of the Queensland Restaurant of the Year Award for Excellence, this is where you go for rainforest atmosphere and a leisurely, creatively-presented eating experience.
2. Room 81 – Located at Sofitel Hotel Broadbeach, this chic and contemporary restaurant’s menu includes signature cocktails before, during and after your divine trout.
3. Lauxes – The place to go for Moreton Bay Bugs is the deluxe champagne dinning lounge in Broadbeach’s trendy dining district. They know how to make any occasion special and the personal attention to detail is thanks to JoJo & Peter.
4. Amalfi Bistro & Wine Bar – Located at Watermark Hotel, with its lounge open to Surfers Paradise Boulveard, this is the place to be for lunch – and later for happy hour. Winner of Best Italian Restuarnt on Gold Coast and the wine list matches the menu perfectly.
