Our party of five, four adults and one child decided to try out this recently opened Mediterranean-style restaurant. It is in the Salt complex where Bellini was previously.
The welcome was friendly, we were served quickly by the enthusiastic waitress and from the entrees through to dessert, we were very impressed with the attentive service and the delicious, authentic flavours of the dishes we ate.
My wife and I shared the flaming haloumi which was spectacular and tasty. For main course, I had the lasagne which was made with pork and beef and a delicious creamy sauce, very filling, but had to leave room for the pannacotta dessert - worth waiting for - absolutely fantastic finish to a phenomenal meal. My wife Christina had the gnocchi ai funghi - the best gnocchi she has ever had and the pannacotta for dessert also which she loved.
Brother-in-law David who is Italian and used to eating great authentic home made Italian food was extremely impressed by the flavours of the eggplant lasagne and his tiramisu dessert.
His wife Anne tried the zucchini flowers and raved about them, also had gnocchi for main and thought it was delicious.
Our niece Nadia had the kids meal which included pasta and sauce, a drink and a dessert which was consumed with gusto.
All up, at a cost of around $50 per head which included drinks, entrees, mains and dessert, sensational value and terrific service.
We are here for a few more days and will be back to try a few more dishes - keep up the good work guys, you have won us over!

Due to 2pm check in we went to look for lunch and found Bonus Eventus. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were friendly and we were not rushed.

Unsure what wine to choose the waitress allowed us to taste one which we chose. They had a great selection of quality wines available.

We had the burger and fries for lunch but I think its the best burger and fries we have ever had due to the special homemade sauce and thick cut chips.

The location was good being at a conference at the mantra Kingscliff. The service was very pleasant and the food was served at the perfect time and interval between courses. The waitress was very friendly and the chef even admitted he didn't know how to make our coffees so we showed him and they were good.
The food was very tasty and the portion sizes were just right.

Firstly, I very rarely take time to write reviews for restaurants, hotels etc but aftwr visiting Bonus Eventus on Friday evening I felt compelled to do so.
Very rarely are you made to feel so so welcome, taken care of in every way and served with a smile by every single staff member.
The guys here go out of their way to create an enjoyable experience for the diners.
Coming from the GoldCoast and being used to terrible service, your standards drop, but after coming here you made us realise that it can be done.
Special mention to Maria Rosalia (Rosie), our amazing Italian waitress who went above and beyond for not just us, but everyone else that was there.
We'll be sure to be back and compliments to the chef because the food was amazing also.
