This review about Vanitas in Palazzo Versace in Main Beach was written by my friend Louise.

Louise, her family and friends are frequent visitors to this restaurant.

I thought it fitting she describe her experiences.

Louise has exquisite taste for luxury.

For those who are wanting something very special in a Gold Coast fine dining environment, I think you will find that Vanitas Restaurant in Palazzo Versace is an excellent choice.

I have added a few interesting tidbits - I hope you don't mind my exercising my editorial perogative!

Totally irrelevant fact but fun anyway!
Vanitas – is a latin word meaning vanity or emptiness. It is also used in the arts to describe a style of northern European still-life painting.

Vanitas is the fine dining restaurant on the Gold Coast.

The experience is not just the food but the location and atmosphere.  The restaurant is located on the northern side of the Palazzo Versace Hotel lobby.

The restaurant itself is quietly elegant with a lavish marble floor, Versace crystal glassware, pristine table settings and fine silverware.

Through the window the backdrop is the central beach lagoon swimming pool.  When lit at night this is a relaxing and fitting outlook to help create an atmosphere of pure luxury.

This is however, a luxury you would expect from one of the leading hotels of the world!

The restaurant experience begins as the manager and head sommélier greets you at the door.

A glass of Louis Roederer champagne as you look over the impressive menu.  There are many items of note, but to name a few: fresh lobster, scallops, duck and many more!

There is also a dégustation menu, for those who would like to try a variety of foods and flavours.

Dégustation (déjustation)
is a French word often used in the English language which means: “careful, appreciative tasting of various foods”.

The wine menu is well appointed with not only local wines, but a selection of international wines to cater for all tastes.  You will find wines of varying ages from the young to aged vintages.

The table service is exceptional and certainly in keeping with the style of the whole restaurant.

Our visits are mostly with adults, but they also cater very well for well-behaved children.  This is kept in check, as you get the feeling that they want to make sure that all the restuarant guests enjoy their dining experience.  

This is not the place to go if you want a loud noisy dinner, this is classic style, elegance and delicious food.

To summarise our many experiences at Vanitas I would have to conclude:

The service is outstanding,

The food exceptional and the venue delightful.

I highly recommend Vanitas to guests who enjoy fine dining or for that special occasion.
