“Terrible terrible terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

After waiting at the front to be seated for some time, none of the staff came to greet us, although we were seen by a few of the waiters. So we found a table and sat down ourselves and waited to have menus be brought to us. One of the waiters brought some cutlery and glasses without saying a word. Never been so disrespected at any restaurant so much. So we just got up and left. Besides, the food on other peoples tables didn't look like anything special.
Would not even recommend this place to my enemy!!!

“We just keep coming back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

What a great place to eat, drink and laugh. Full of atmosphere, the view is great, the staff are always friendly with a smile..... and the food, yummy! I had the Pork Belly special one night and seriously, it was the best I have ever had. More recently my husband had lamb shanks and also made the statement, they were the best he has ever had.....just delicious! My favourite cocktail is the Golden Dream, an old classic with a modern twist. If you want seriously honest and delicious food, then this is the place to be.

“Nice spot, but terrible service and very average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

We've now dined here for breakfast, lunch and two dinners in the last month as it is a very convenient location and a great spot with a nice view of the Surfers Paradise skyline.
The menu looks great, with excellent variety, unfortunately the food is rarely cooked and served as it is described on the menu. The can never get the steaks cooked even close to the way its requested, and several times now the pasta has been undercooked. The menu looks great, but rarely cooked to standard.
The biggest problem with this restaurant is the service and staff. They are WAY TOO over familiar. Taken from several visits, we have over and over found them to be pushy and too personal. They interrupt serious conversations and think they have the right to join in conversations they overhear.
Theres nothing wrong with friendly and chatty staff, but we have found that on many occasions they take this to a whole new level by being pushy and way too personal with their chatting to the point it is actually very rude. They don't seem to get the hint either when you try to discourage them.
Pity, as there are now very little good dining options at Isle Of Capri.

“Got what I expected...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I'd heard such bad reviews so had given it a wide berth. Friends finally dragged us there and I got what I expected. Drinks took awhile, my martini had olives (not good ones) and a massive twist of lemon rind??? so tasted awful. Nearly broke my tooth on bist of shell in the oysters.Our lamb shanks were more fat than meat. I observed other diners picking through their shanks too. Its just too expensive for what you get. Its just a café, but still dearer than beautiful perfect Fish House.

“Great find in new market style centre on the Gold Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We decided to try this restaurant in a relatively new marketplace style centre on the Isle of Capri. Lovely setting in the sunshine on a cool morning, overlooking the water . Coffee was good and all our choices for breakfast were delicious.Service was friendly and well timed. The place was busy with happy diners.we'll be back!
