  • The Oak Café 0

    Cnr Robert and Railway St, Mudgeeraba, Queensland 4213

    Somehow, every time we visit Mudgeeraba we fall in love again. It’s because little things count. A greeting from wait staff or a friendly smile from the open kitchen, water immediately brought to the table, a bowl of water for someone’s dog… it all adds up to make a village. The Oak Café, Mudgeeraba’s latest […]

  • La Barrita 0

    4 Bells Blvd., Kingscliff, NSW

    “How come we’ve never been here before?” We shake our heads as we walk away from La Barrita, impressed. Nestled in between Fins and Bombay Cricketers Club in Salt Village, La Barrita opened in December 2017, slipping quietly onto the tail end of the ‘Mexican wave’ of coastal openings. While the opening of some restaurants […]

  • Little BoHo Café 0

    18 Christine Ave., Miami, Queensland 4220

    When it comes to meat, it’s hard to go past low and slow cooked brisket. Falling apart at the touch of a fork, it’s juicy and tender, smothered in lashings of sauce, full of complex umami flavours. That’s just how we find it at Little BoHo Café in Miami. Little BoHo has always had a […]

  • Salt Meats Cheese 1

    The 4217, 10 Beach Road, Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217

    There’s nothing sexier than men preparing food. Especially Mediterranean men preparing really good rustic whole food. The ladies know it. They saunter in just before midday, hips swinging slowly, arms extended, looking for him. ‘Where’s Alessandro?’ Young and gorgeous, he crosses the restaurant to meet them, a huge smile lighting his face before being enveloped […]

  • Home Plate Kitchen 3

    6 Treeview Drive, Burleigh Waters, Queensland 4220

    Tucked around a corner off Mattocks Road, it’s unlikely that you’d stumble across Home Plate Kitchen unless you’d previously heard about it. But there are lots of reasons why you should seek it out. Firstly, it’s a real ‘local scene’ café. Owners Jess Kaimoana and Shayne Green had owned cafés in Sydney before travelling through […]

  • Sage Café Restaurant 0

    5/20 Queensland Avenue, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    Chances are that if you’ve been to Broadbeach for holidays, you’ve eaten at Sage. Slung around a winning corner in the highly competitive Broadbeach dining area, Sage has been a solid performer over the last few years. Now under new owners, a whole Asian Fusion menu has been introduced and we can’t get enough of […]

  • Zullaz Bar & Eating Place 0

    21a/52 James Street (Big B Arcade), Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4220

    John and Allison Boswell have been in love with coffee all their adult lives. They met in a coffee shop, proposed in a coffee shop… so it was natural that, when Premiato Coffee became available, they would buy the roastery to pursue their passion. Eight years later, they’ve added a restaurant to their holdings, extending […]

  • Quan 55 & Bar 0

    4/55 Brooke Ave., Southport, Queensland 4215

    If you visit Quan 55 in search of a traditional Vietnamese restaurant, you might just be disappointed. Quan 55 is all that and more. Wynn Huynh, who owns Quan 55 with her husband Thanh Tram, is the first to tell us that she has never felt confined by expectations. So, you should expect the unexpected! […]

  • Lucky Lucianos Italian 0

    The Kitchens, 19 Robina Town Centre Drive, Robina

    It’s ‘déjà vu’ when we enter Lucky Lucianos. Not only does it get its name from the godfather of modern organised crime, Charles ‘Lucky’ Luciano, but there’s also (perhaps unwittingly) a nodding reference to Lucky’s Trattoria, the legendary pizzeria that operated during Fortitude Valley’s former ‘days of grunge’. Newly married and on paupers’ wages, we […]

  • Ally Chow 0

    2215 Gold Coast Hwy, Nobby Beach, Queensland 4218

    If you pine for Asia, as we often do, then pop on down to Ally Chow, where you can savour a range of Pan Asian flavours under one roof. Inspired by the depth and breadth of Asian cuisine, owner-chef Trent Scarr (ex-Songbirds and more recently Honeyeater Kitchen, Robina) and partner Leisha Novy have opened a […]

  • Silipo Coffee, Southport 0

    3/54 Bailey Crescent, Southport, Queensland 4215

    The coffee roasting company, Silipo Coffee, is hidden away in the light industrial area of Bailey Crescent, Southport. Local workers can refuel with excellent coffee carefully brewed by barista Richard Silipo, grab breakfast or lunch, or buy their own takeaway coffee beans. After owning the trattoria Basilico in Southport and Oompahs in Burleigh, Richard decided […]

  • On Fire 0

    Shop 12, 17 Albert Ave Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    After a short break in ‘retirement’, one of Broadbeach’s most successful restaurateurs, Asem Othman, is back. The former owner of Rocks on Broadbeach and Bistro Blanc, which he sold several years ago, has returned to Broadbeach to open a new restaurant, ‘On Fire’, in Albert Avenue. “I wanted to do something from my own background,” […]

  • Brekkie for a Tenner 0

    Shop 1, Bronberg Plaza, 138 – 162 Slatyer Ave., Bundall, Queensland 4215

    “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and supper like a pauper!” Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s become a popular catch up time for friends to meet, especially on the weekend. But if there’s a trend emerging already in 2018 it’s that some breakfast prices have risen dramatically […]

Napoli Zero81 Pizza Bar has opened in Southport, joining a clutch of eateries in the new precinct of Brooke Avenue, Chirn Park. Alongside the outstanding Meraki […]

  • Hessian & Bean 0

    7/2 Fifth Ave, Palm Beach, Queensland 4221

    ‘Coffee cave’ is an apt description of Hessian & Bean Boutique Espresso in Palm Beach. Entering the café on a hot summer’s day, there’s an impression of deep, dark and cool, even the shopfront shaded by a wide awning. Inside, the décor gives a clear message: this is the home of passionate coffee lovers, a […]

  • Be Somewhere 0

    James Street Arcade, James St., Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4220

    I’m looking at the shoes and they’re completely random: chef’s clogs with eggs and bacon splattered all over them – the pattern that is, not actual eggs and bacon. Still, it’s random. It’s black humour that’s rarely shown outside the kitchen; the ‘can do’ attitude of someone who’s stuffed it up and moved on or, […]

  • Café Caribou 0

    443 Golden Four Dr, Tugun, Queensland 4224

    Owning a café is everyone’s dream, or so it seems. It’s easy to be a critic, to go into a new place for breakfast and say that your eggs should have been cooked a different way, that service wasn’t fast enough, or that you don’t like the way the waitress was dressed… But what we […]

  • Ragdoll Bar & Dining Lounge 0

    49 James St, Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4220

    James Street Burleigh is hotly contested space, the T-section of a dining hub that provides a range of casual dining choices. But choice also means competition, closures and change of ownership, the case with Finders Keepers. In a quick turnaround, new owners Kieran Jensen (former manager of The Fish House) and Emerson Brown have transformed […]

  • N3 Tapas Bar 0

    Shop 33, Marine Mirage, 74 Seaworld Drive, Main Beach, Queensland 4217

    There are many ways to choose where you want to dine: food, vibe, service, friends, location. For us, location is the most negotiable, and food the least so. If the food is ordinary (or worse), nothing else can make up. Smash the food, service and atmosphere off the charts and you’re on a winner. N3 […]
