Even though it ticks off two of the traditional “no” boxes for most foodies (it’s part of a chain and it’s mostly noisy and jammed-packed), this is a great place for families staying in the middle of Surfers Paradise. It serves quality flame-grilled steak and ribs – and there’s a view. Call ahead to book or go early to get a table by the window. This place is a haven for meat-eaters but there are a few lighter options (fish of the day and veggie burger) for the less carnivorous folk.
Surfers Paradise is the beating heart of the Gold Coast – it’s a heady blend of soaring skyscrapers, glitzy boutiques and buzzing nightlife. It’s just over 30 minutes by car from Coolangatta airport and the Gold Coast light rail connects this area with nearby precincts like Southport and Broadbeach. Shopping, restaurants, theme parks and, of course, the beach are all within easy distance.
