Gourmet grub for the discerning diner prepared to splurge...
There are no surprises at this bar-grill; it’s linked to Scotty’s backpackers and offers up cheap backpacker meals of the lasagne and pasta type, as well as free wine (ask when!)...
Old-school Italian joint in homey surrounds and a hearty, dependable menu with all the favourites: pizza, pastas, steaks and seafood. Nothing cutting-edge, but its traditional feel is what makes it a local favourite.
One of several cool eateries to hit Burleigh Heads, Justin Lane is located in a rehabilitated arcade. This pizzeria and bar is a fun and vibrant place with heaps of buzz energy, hustle and bustle...
An urban-island feel permeates Yeppoon’s best restaurant, which serves up Oz-Asian fusion cuisine with interesting takes on local seafood. Loll beneath the fig tree, or clink silverware in the indoor woodsy surrounds.
On-site bar and restaurant at Adel's Grove , with a big open-air deck. A two-course set menu dinner and breakfast are included in room rates (though nonguests can eat here too)...
One of the Gold Coast’s finest, this ooh-la-la restaurant right on the beach serves award-winning seafood and has sweeping views up the coast to Surfers...
This stylish Italian restaurant oozes Mediterranean warmth with its wooden tables and potted fig trees. Pricey, though consistently popular for favourites such as osso bucco and pasta cooked a dozen different ways.
This minibakery and cafe is a local institution, known for great coffee and German sourdough bread. Try the eier im glas , a soft-boiled egg in a glass alongside a plate of bacon, grilled tomato and cheese.
Set in a heritage building with a relaxing verandah and an intimate dining room, GPO serves flavourful dishes like herb-crusted Atlantic salmon, beautifully grilled steaks, and seafood dishes with Asian touches.
The most popular restaurant in town serves enormous plates of international fare. The large menu includes chicken enchiladas, grilled fish, veal schnitzel and yummy desserts. It gets very busy; book ahead. BYO.
This understated, casually chic restaurant, with an all-Italian wine bar, spreads across an arcade cul-de-sac. The menu is high-end Aus-Italo and includes exquisite dishes such as Moreton Bay bug spaghetti.
Industrious Trang plates up excellent Vietnamese and Chinese classics on the Hardgrave Rd foodie strip, inside what was once the Rialto Theatre lobby. The 'Special Beef' pho is a winner. Roaring takeaway trade.
Famous for its coffee, all-day breakfasts and people-watching pole position, Bayorama has a jam-packed menu that truly has something for everyone (even vegetarians!). Attentive, chirpy service is an added bonus.
The menu is as exotic as the decor in this funky bar-cum-restaurant. The Polynesian, Moroccan and Indian dishes sound tantalising but be brave and order the Jamaican goat curry. Cocktails are just as exotic.
A cafe that goes above and beyond the usual snackery, with scrumptious mains including crispy-skin salmon in chilli jam and mussels dripping with garlic and cream. The beachfront views are easy to swallow, too.
