I attend on Thursday 24th August with over 30 members of the Surfers Paradise Sip N Sup club. The views over the water and the general layout within the restaurant was very good. The service provided to us by James and Jess was very good. There were no complaints from any member. The entree of asparagus wrapped in cheese with seafood around was a delight . I had double cooked , long wide pasta which was home made daily. It was cooked in duck sauce and this process took about 48 hours. This is not normally available for clients unless there are many in the group. The home made bread with cooked garlic and olive oil was served with the entree. For desert we had a large array of cheeses , fruit and crackers. The variety and quality of the food was of a very high standard. This restaurant is a must visit restaurant when one comes to the Gold Coast.

Returned for a lunch. What a total disappointment: First the waiter brought 2 glasses of Prosecco, we only ordered one. Then the mains arrived 2 minutes after we got the entrees - the waiter did not want to take the mains back, he did nit even understand our request, we just wanted to finish our bread and olives first. The mains were plain and without flavour: Pappardelle with duck ragu was watery, the parmesan on top of it dry and stale, the pasta sticking to each other, the slow cooked duck coukd have been ckicken or pork, just pale and tasteless. My wifes Tortellini with chicken tasted like Latina out of a packet. The head waiter offered to take the Pappardelle off the bill which was appreciated, but saying that we simply were looking forward to a nice, authentic Italian meal, unfortunately it left me so disappointed that I will not go back to this place.

It is interesting that this is the only review you have ever done on TripAdvisor and that it is one star.

We are very disappointed with this harsh 1 star review considering that we went out of our way to try and address your issues, even going as far as to not charge you for a dish. We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our reviews on TripAdvisor are 5 or 4 star - and this kind of review is truly an anomaly.

We wish you all the best.

Ciao - Carlo.

Food Wine & Staff were terrific. Both the manager and waitress were very attentive and engaged to ensure we had a wonderful night. They created seamless interruptions as necessary to enable my meeting to flow perfectly whilst adding a little fun to our experience. Top spot to do business. Whilst Henschke was the wine I chose I was surprised how well priced some of the quaffers were.

Great location nice Resturant but service is in the toilet frankly. Food was fast fresh and ok but I wouldn't rate it as being incredible. It is like there is an expectation that as a customer you know how good they are and on that basis expect service and the food to be below par because they are so good they don't have to try.

Sorry disappointed had much higher expectations given it was so heavily promoted by the locals

Excellent evening. Delicious food, exceptional service and a great view. Pasta made on the premises and all produce sourced from the best suppliers according to the waiter
