The Loose Moose Tap & Grill Bar

Standard
Oasis Shopping Centre, 75 Surf Parade, Broadbeach QLD 4218, Australia

 

Went there to eat, not to drink and loved the food. The Sweet Potato Fries were amazing. Burgers were great too. Friendly, fast and reasonably priced. I have to say that I was blown away by the amazingly moody Chicago gangster style corridor leading down to the bathrooms … thought I had walked onto a movie set … brilliant!

A pleasant afternoon tea. All was good but nothing special and there are much better cafes nearby… like LOLAS!

Skypoint Cafe & Bar

Standard
Level 77 of Q1 Resort, Cnr Hamilton Ave/Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217, Australia

 

 

Looks dated, lacking class, overshadowed the ‘viewing experience’ of the tower location. Generall overpriced. We had coffee and cake, it was a reasonable deal but the muffins were dry, heavy, not enjoyable and we left half. The entire place needs to get some style and class to meet expectations!

Skypoint Observation Deck

Standard
9 Hamilton Ave, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217, Australia

 

$25 each to go up in a lift, look at an ‘average’ view’ and take photos. No, not worth it! Don’t bother … here’s the view, save your money. The video of the history of the Gold Coast was interesting at least but not worth $25!

Yellowfin Seafood Restaurant

Standard
6/20 Queensland Ave, Broadbeach QLD 4218, Australia

 

We had a 40% discount voucher from our accommodation … they said they would only honour 30%. The entree was fine. We ordered Barramundi, but they had none, we agreed on Ocean Perch, we got Salmon. (?) It was nice but, seriously, if the waiter could speak more clearly and listen even better then it may have been a good experience, but … too overpriced for the experience. Never again!

Hog’s Australia’s Steakhouse Broadbeach

Standard
Aria, 1 Surf Parade, Broadbeach QLD 4218, Australia

 

 

Thought we would give them a go as the prices looked reasonable. Service was good. The entree was fine. My main was the Aussie 18 Hour Slow Cooked Prime Rib Steak … I regret choosing it! There was far too much uncooked fat, not worth the $40, not even worth $20. I left half of it because it was fatty and inedible … I felt unwell after eating it. NEVER AGAIN! Also, why do the female waiters all wear skimpy denim shorts but the guys wear jeans … very sexist! I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER!

The Breakers Absolute Beachfront Apartment

Standard
60 Old Burleigh Rd, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217, Australia

 

Absolutely on the beach!
Amazing location in walking distance to the main Surfers Paradise area to the north and endless food and shopping options to the south, including Pacific Fair; about 25 minutes walk along the beach each way. You must check out Lolas Cafe two blocks away!


We have the ocean facing room we requested and a renovated unit in the top half of the building … all I can see and hear from where I’m sitting now is beach and ocean. 🙂 A beautiful heated pool, secure key only access to the entire property, clean, comfortable, thorough ‘Guest Information’ folder in the unit, with very friendly and helpful reception.
Fast and FREE Wi-Fi as well, even accessible by the pool or on the edge of the beach.
A LIFESAVER patrols the beach right in front from 8am to 5pm (Swim between the flags!).


The SUNRISES are breathtaking and the Full Moon rising is astonishing… directly outside our window!
Highly recommended!
