Best Broadbeach Restaurants

Best Broadbeach Restaurants include Queensland Award Winners

Best Broadbeach Restaurants featured in Restaurant and Catering Queensland Awards.
Broadbeach restaurants are
good enough to be Queensland Award winners.

Are the Broadbeach Restaurants really that good?

Does Broadbeach deserve the title of Gold Coast Eating Capital?

It seems when it comes to awards the restaurants in Broadbeach seem to come up trumps!

When I first wrote this page in 2008, we certainly had our fair share of great restaurants. The question is, have they stood the test of time or have things moved on with new restaurants opening and old ones closing?

The 2011 Restaurant and Catering Association Awards for Broadbeach Restaurants include the following:

Best South East Qld Tourism Restaurant Awards

As you can see there are a few overall Gold Coast winners in there, some honourable mentions and some fantastic suggestions of places to eat in Broadbeach.

One thing I noticed when I was compiling this list is that Broadbeach seems to be falling a little behind some other parts of the Gold Coast for new restaurants in particular.

Some of the 2008 winners have also lost their crowns over the last few years and some restaurants in Broadbeach are no longer around, which is a shame.

It will be interesting to see when this years awards are announced whether Broadbeach restauranteurs have lifted their game and manage to gain more of the top spots.

There is no doubt, that Broadbeach certainly has a significant share of some of the best restaurants in the Gold Coast. I hope you manage to enjoy some of the restaurants mentioned here and would love to hear your comments.

You can share your reviews and experiences , read reviews of Broadbeach Restaurants or make your own comments to keep the reviews current and relevant.

2012 Review of Verve Restaurant Cafe and Bar in Broadbeach

Verve Restaurant is located just behind Broadbeach in Broadbeach Waters on the corner of Sunshine Boulevard and TE Peters Drive just minutes from the heart of Broadbeach.

In 2012 this restuarant was awarded a Chef's Hat by the Australian Good Food Guide - AGFG.

One of my friends Louise, who has done other reviews for this website (Vanitas and Champagne Brasserie) has this to say about her frequent visits to Verve....

Louise's Quick Review of Verve in Broadbeach

Verve is a boutique style restaurant located behind Jupiter's Hotel and Casino.

Shelly, the proprietor, makes guests feel welcome and prides herself on her service. The food is excellent. The slow cook beef cheeks fall apart, the pork belly is moist and tender and the desserts are sinful.

The wine menu also has an excellent selection of enjoyable and fine wines. Patroned by the local community, who try to keep this little restauarnt a secret to themselves.

Ha ha! Poor Louise, thinks we can keep this secret. She had me at sinful desserts! If you get a chance to check out this restaurant whilst visiting Gold Coast, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Moo Moo The Wine Bar and Grill at Broadbeach

2008 Winner Best Steak Restaurant Award

I've not eaten at the grill, but the Moo Moo Wine Bar is a popular spot for  drinks.

It will have to be something special for me to give up my favourite Cav's Steakhouse.

Located at Mantra's Broadbeach on the Park Resort opposite the Sofitel Hotel - Moo Moo is open 7 days for lunch and dinner. Another plus for this restaurant is that you can park under the building for free.

Oberoi's Taj at Broadbeach

2008 Winner Best Indian Restaurant Award

Oberoi's Taj is located on Surf Parade a few doors up from Bistro Blanc. This is an absolute must for me to try. I LOVE Indian food (being a pommie it's a natural thing really!)

This Gold Coast indian restaurant is open 7 days from 12.00 noon until late each night. It is fully licensed or you can BYO wine. They also do takeaway which could be useful if you are staying in one of the nearby apartments or hotels.
