“Birthday dinner”
Review of LakeFront Bistro

LakeFront Bistro
Ranked #1 of 28 Restaurants in Carrara
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$7 - US$41
Cuisines: French, Australian, International
Description: Awarded Best European Restaurant in QLD/NT, LakeFront Bistro is situated in the Central Gold Coast suburb of Carrara in the beautiful French Quarter of Emerald Lakes. The lake side setting of the restaurant provides a stunning backdrop to a relaxing lunch or magnificent dinner. LakeFront Bistro's Head Chef Andrew Peaston is a veteran of the industry with more years experience in fine dining restaurants than he cares to admit to, but years of experience show with the amazing dishes that he is able to consistently serve. The Modern Australian menu that Andrew has created for LakeFront Bistro boasts a French influence and still manages to include some traditional dishes that many people find difficult to find on the Gold Coast. In addition to the menu, there are a number of "off the menu" specials that are available from time to time. These special dishes have previously included the likes of the Grand Mariner Souffle, with orange sorbet and brandy snap basket; or the Veal steak with carrot gateau and steamed spinach with a red wine jus. Not only does LakeFront Bistro offer an excellent dining option to small parties or couples, but it also boasts a private function room suited for up to 60 guests. This private function room is perfect as a wedding venue (with ceremony options available), or to service a work function with many options available.

My husband and I enjoyed a rare night out to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We chose Lake View based on the prices and great selection of food on the menu. We were both very impressed with everything on the night, from the complimentary appetizer to the delightful waitress/owner. Lovely atmosphere and very classy presentation of each meal. Everything was wonderfully tasty and great value for money. We dressed up but others in the restaurant were dressed casually. Suitable for couples to large groups. Great time to head out for a special dinner as it was not too busy so meals were out quickly and served hot. Will be back for sure.
