Friday business lunches are a very popular thing on the Gold Coast. What could be better than ending the business week with a wine or three and a delicious meal while you discuss very important things with your colleagues and clients?

In celebration of that, here are 9 spots we think are perfect to do exactly that.

Glass Dining and Lounge Bar
Found overlooking the water at Marina Mirage, Glass is one of the impressive venues owned by The Gennari Group. The menu created by Head Chef Greg Roberts showcases only the best quality produce, meats and fresh local seafood and of course, there’s an exceptional wine and cocktail list to match.
Where: Marina Mirage, 74 Seaworld Drive, Main Beach

Edgewater Dining
Boasting stunning water views, Edgewater Dining at Capri on Via Roma is one of the most popular spots for a Friday business lunch on the Coast. Their menu is made up of modern Australian cuisine with an Italian twist and they too have an extensive cocktail menu to accompany. Food-wise though, we strongly suggest the delectable Prawn & Bug Meat Risotto.
Where: Shop 3, Capri on Via Roma, Isle of Capri

Hyde Paradiso
The absolutely beautiful Hyde Paradiso re-opened recently allowing us to once again indulge in the stunning, colour-filled interior overlooking Surfers Paradise beach and serving up some very tasty eats. There’s a signature cocktail menu that you’ll want to work your way through and dishes like Cape Grim ribeye steak to fill you up.
Where: Level 2, 8 The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise

Nineteen at The Star
Way up high overlooking the ocean and the Broadbeach cityscape, Nineteen at The Star is the perfect place for a Friday business lunch. Utilising the freshest of produce, Executive Chef Uday Huja has created a divine menu that is both elegant and filled with taste sensations like Charcoal Oven Rock Lobster with a garlic butter crumb. If you fancy an oyster feast, try Nineteen’s new Oyster Journey where you can try oysters from different regions and learn about the unique tastes associated with the climates in which they grow. Spectacular in every sense of the word.
Where: Nineteen at The Star, The Star Gold Coast, Broadbeach

Mamasan Kitchen + Bar
Mamasan Kitchen + Bar delivers a melting pot of Asian flavour in a modern share style menu. You’ll be immersed in the theatre of an open kitchen while experiencing epic dishes and even better cockails, Asian whiskys, international wines and of course, sake. What more could you want on a Friday?
Where: 3 Oracle Boulevard, Broadbeach

Social Eating House + Bar

An award-winning restaurant also found within The Oracle in Broadbeach, Social Eating House + Bar boasts a modern Australia menu you’ll remember for a long time. Featuring both a share menu and larger plates, beautifully plated plus exquisite cocktails and a perfectly curated wine list, you’re sure to impress here.
Where: Shop 137-138 Oracle Boulevard, Broadbeach

Miss Moneypenny’s
The famed Noosa venue moved into Broadbeach a short while ago and since then, Miss Moneypenny’s been absolutely packed with Gold Coasters who love fresh seafood made into the most delicious of dishes and creative cocktails. The menu has recently been refined by chef Adam Dundas-Taylor. If you make an afternoon of it, you can get involved in Shuck Yeah, it’s Friday with a dozen oysters for $24. How good.
Where: 50 Surf Parade, Broadbeach

Rick Shores
Practically sitting in the ocean at Burleigh Heads, Rick Shores offers up one of the most stunning backdrops for your Friday business lunch. Inside you’re treated with 180 degree ocean views, or choose to perch outside in the sunshine. Either way, prepare your tastebuds for some Asian fusion magic. The menu is set and ever-changing but rest assured you’ll love every single dish.
Where: Burleigh Pavilion, Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads

The Tropic
Burleigh Pavilion’s The Tropic is not only a delight for the eyes with their open kitchen, soothing pastel interior and uninterrupted ocean views, they’re also offering a very tasty selection of dishes you’ll absolutely want to get involved in on a Friday at lunchtime. Think Clams Spaghetti and Dry Aged Rib Eye paired with a mouthwatering cocktail or two. It’s a very good time at The Tropic and the perfect way to ease on into the weekend.
