With such a wide selection of food and wine, you’re going to need a little more than a quick eat and run at Ristorante Fellini. You’re probably thinking Italian Restaurant = pasta. While they do have amazing house made pasta, there’s much more to their Italian menu than that.
It’s menu is practically an encyclopedia of Italian dishes, with each dish looking even more mouthwatering than the last. But don’t let the glitz and glam fool you, they’re as welcoming to out-of-towners and families as they are to the local glitterati.
Feel fancy-schmancy in this amazing Italian restaurant with stellar views of million-dollar yachts and the Gold Coast waters.
Allure On Currumbin

Casual but elegant French cuisine with an Australian twist. If you check website like TripAdvisor, you’ll see mostly stellar reviews so you’d probably have sky high expectations. Would you believe me if I told you that Allure would live up to every single one of those expectations?
From the classy but warm ambiance to the impeccable service, to the fantastic food: it’ll be very difficult to find fault in this well sought-after restaurant. Imagine the gentle but buttery taste of a pan seared Atlantic salmon on your tongue as each bite turns into a medley of flavours with truffled mash, grilled asparagus, crisp parsnip, and salsa verde.
The Fish House
Address: 50 Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads
Phone: 07 5535 7725
When there’s a beach, there should be good sea food. It only makes sense that The Fish House, with its sophisticated yet homey vibe, serves you the freshest catch in a beachside dining room.
From raw, to baked, to smoked, to deep fried, you’ll discover so many ways to prepare fresh seafood. Try a crustacean risotto or a pan-roasted Tasmanian bass groper with tomato salsa. It’s an amazing way to pay homage to the mighty seas and tickle your taste buds with the what will arguably be the best seafood you’ll ever taste.
Okay, there are too many other awesome restaurants in the Gold Coast but these three are still my favourites. Have you ever been to any? Shout out which one and what your favourite dish is!
