When it comes to those all-time get-togethers with a large group of friends, family, colleagues or clients, most restaurants will accommodate you with a large enough table and look after you with some stellar service.

But what if you could have your own private space, an area where conversations are not overheard, and your every food yearning and drink desire were wholly taken care of.

Well, folks, stop the press. Because if you were not aware, there are a number of top-tier restaurants in our fair city that can offer you this experience with their very own private dining rooms. Meaning a fabulous meal out can be utterly elevated to a memorable experience no one will forget in a hurry!

Mamma Mia, if you haven’t checked into this hotbed of Italian goodness in Palm Beach, then you need to rectify that — STAT. If the graceful standalone building and décor aren’t enough, then the stone-baked pizzas and handmade pastas should quash the pain from not being able to visit the old country! Their private dining space is upstairs and seats you and eleven of your nearest with your very own dedicated servers for a superb taste of Italy.

Miss Moneypenny’s
How does a large-scale exclusive dining and event area in the heart of bustling Broadbeach sound? The Rimini Room at Miss Moneypenny’s is a decadent space completely separated from the rest of the venue and even has its own bar, private outdoor terrace and elevator access. (How cool?!) Perfect for intimate dinners and gatherings — but with the potential to host 70 people if needed.
Where: 50 Surf Parade, Broadbeach

Garden Kitchen & Bar
Between incredible drinks, great regular live music, and generally just being an all-time place to hang out and relax in, The Star’s Garden Kitchen Bar can also tame fits of hunger with an impressive menu of fresh and seasonal produce. They’re pretty big on a farm to fork and fish to dish way of operating, and the proof is well and truly in the pudding. There are several private dining rooms that can be sectioned off from the main dining room, so be sure to chat to the team next time you want to experience great food and company — without any distractions.
Where: The Star Gold Coast, Casino Drive, Broadbeach

Little Truffle
As one of the Gold Coast’s longest established and most incredible odes to European cuisine, Little Truffle is a ‘hidden in plain sight’ gem you must visit in Mermaid Beach. Take your pick between one of two private dining rooms, which are the perfect spots for a celebration, business meeting, or even presentation, and let the glorious food and worldly selection of wines make leaving difficult. Rumour has it… Hugh Jackman hired a private dining room here too! Just ask Daniel Ridgeway
Where: 2444 Gold Coast Hwy, Mermaid Beach

When it comes to superb views of our spectacular skyline and unadulterated servings of all things delicious, Edgewater Dining is very high up on the list — if not at the very top. Great seasonal Australian produce meets with a twist of traditional Italian style cooking, and the colossal drinks list is truly something to marvel at. Book in for a function/event to their private dining room for an exclusive setting (with adjacent private balcony) and see what all the fuss is about.
Where: Shop 3 G7, Capri on Via Roma, Surfers Paradise

Maggie Choo
The vibrant street hawker foods of Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpar are lovingly brought to the Gold Coast in deft fashion at Maggie Choo. Apart from amazing cocktails and a colourful atmosphere any time of the day and any day of the week, you can book yourself into their secluded dining space for a cosy meal with colleagues, family, even your running club if you must! There’s space for 14 people, and you have the choice of their Maggie Tease and Maggie Luxe banquets to tuck into.
Where: Shop 105/89 Surf Parade, Broadbeach

Having just hit their first birthday recently, this James Street stunner in Burleigh Heads has shaped up nicely as a euro-focused eatery that just keeps on delivering. The ethos is simple handmade dishes based on the kind of thing you’d perhaps eat if you grew up with the Mediterranean in your backyard. Expect sublime drink offering and enough share plates for everyone — regardless of dietary requirements or taste. Grab your squad and hit up their private dining space (where you can see the passers by of James St) for a lunch/dinner with style!
Where: 49 James Street, Burleigh Heads

Glass Dining & Lounge Bar
Elegant and refined, Glass is many people’s go-to place for delicious bites in Main Beach. And it’s relatively easy to see why; with sumptuous seafood and exquisite meat dishes, the incredible view of million-dollar yachts across the Broadwater is merely the cherry on top. Their private space sits up to 10 guests and is prime champagne and oyster territory!
Where: 74 Seaworld Drive & Marina Mirage Waterfront, Main Beach
