Surf, sand… and good food! What more could you want? Well, that’s the Gold Coast summed up in a nutshell. The GC has become a gourmand’s playground… with so many offerings – you’ll run out of time to try them all!
Let’s start with traditional high tea. Tucked into the hills of Tallebudgera is a quaint tea house offering a variety of settings for your special occasion… or even if it’s just for a catch-up over a cuppa… with no reason required!
Owner, Sonia, has a love of fine china… which began with a gift of four exquisite Royal Doulton teacups from her mother. Today, Teavine House has over 250 sets to show off… to hold one of their lovely brews.
Our tip? Get the full high tea experience, the scones are divine – with fresh, homemade jam. Yum!
But if you’re looking for something a little more substantial, Labart will take you from fine china to fine dining…
This classy, bistro-style restaurant sits at beautiful Burleigh Heads on the southern Gold Coast. And while the décor is French-inspired, the menu is modern Australian!
Owners, Alex and Karla love the coast – and they’re super-patriotic about what their chefs get to play with in the kitchen. Fresh and local is the catch-cry here… with a hint of European style. Another tip – if you order the prawns (when in season), ask for double the bread to mop up the sauce! It’s made out of the shell, and it’s scrumptious.
While on the Goldie’s southern end, coast your way over to Currumbin to sample Balter’s craft beers. There are more than a dozen brews ready to pour in their revamped taproom… and a healthy rotation of food trucks that’ll sort out your dinner plans… quick smart!
Keen to kick things up a notch with some coastal style?
Cali Beach Bar is the perfect spot to start and finish your day. This epic roof-top bar sits smack bang in Surfers Paradise… with four pools, a volleyball court, endless cabanas and multiple bars – summer vibes are rockin’ all year’ round… and all night long!
So, there you have it – the Gold Coast on a platter… for more places, check out the Destination Gold Coast website.
