Little Truffle
Little Truffle 2.0 has been treated to a grown-up glow-up to match its refined eats, combining moody Hollywood Glam elements with Jazz Bar vibes for an aesthetic that we’ve officially dubbed ‘Gold Coast Grandeur’. The suave new space is just about as opulent as our eateries on the GC get – bedecked with opulent baroque mirrors, chandeliers, luxe herringbone floors, strategically draped velvet curtains and two private dining rooms. The second of which remains shrouded in mystery, as a very exclusive vault-vibing space for 20 guests with its own private entry (in sad news for our star spotting ops).

A contemporary bar and grill concept, boasting one of the city’s only charcoal wood-fire grills, this mammoth space redefined the way we meet and eat in Broadbeach. Along with seafood towers, roving champagne and caviar trolleys, and a purpose-built dry aged cool room that can be seen (drooled over) from Oracle Boulevard, our wining and dining game copped a serious upgrade. The luxurious space boasts an impressive 130-seat restaurant, in addition to private dining room, bar dining and outdoor pavilion spaces.

Mozza Mozza
It’s the largest private dining room on the northern Gold Coast in one of our most loved pizza and pasta joints, so obviously, Mozza Mozza had to make the list. Holding up to 18 guests makes it the perfect space for your fancy Italian feast, because we’re all about a chance to carb load. The crew have pulled together a ripper-feasting menu with all of the restaurant’s favourites, plus they’ve got spritz packages on offer if you’re in the moody for a cheeky Aperol moment alongside your cheese wheel pasta.
Where: Southport Sharks, Corner Olsen Avenue & Musgrave Avenue, Southport

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!

Misono Japanese Restaurant
If you haven’t been to Misono then where have you been, honestly? While you’re probably familiar with the uber entertaining teppanyaki experience, you might not know they’ve got an adults only private dining space. If the sound of an elevated teppanyaki experience, even more theatrics and paired sake sounds like your vibe then say no more – this Gold Coast institution is here to deliver.
Where: JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa, Level 3/158 Ferny Ave, Surfers Paradise

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 an adjacent private balcony) and see what all the fuss is about.

It’s the home of casual fine dining and since its recent reno, the team at Social Eating House have created the most beautiful private sanctuary for small groups.

We’ll take any excuse to tuck into their puffed sesame rice cracker fish tartare or lamb empanada en masse without judgement.
Where: The Oracle, Shop 137/3 Oracle Blvd, 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.

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?!)

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.
Where: 1069 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach

It was a sad day that we farewelled the GC’s last Pizza Hut buffet, but the building’s resurrection as Siblings Kirra is a triumph. Now a modern Australian brunch and dinner destination, dripping with 1950’s Miami beach vibes goodness from pillar to post. There’s no endless soft serve, but there is a stunning private dining room. The perfect choice for your next shin-dig this room seats 26 guests, with a small private deck attached for a long lunch or intimate private dinner.
Where: 15 Marine Parade, Kirra

Finding a traditional Cantonese fine dining experience in Australia is harder than locating your hoop earring on a packed Retros dancefloor. With this in mind, we were extra eager to sample the hotly anticipated T’ang Court, a major coup for the region situated in our new home of luxe, The Langham Gold Coast. Well this gastronomic gem is officially open for business and as expected, has brought its A game! The very first Australian sibling of the internationally acclaimed T’ang Court restaurants, it has all the makings of an icon, leaving fans of fine dining and super swish hotels wonton more!

The ‘T’ang Court’ name is synonymous with an unmissable, Michelin-star worthy eats experience of the highest calibre. Presenting elevated culinary masterpieces, seasonal delicacies and exquisite flavours crafted with the finest local produce, our Surfers Paradise T’ang Court is every bit the international superstar we had envisioned.

Upon walking inside this 80-seat indoor venue, you’re immediately mesmerised by the juxtaposition of modern luxury and traditional authenticity. Boujee furnishings greet you at every turn, their refined beauty accentuated by bespoke abstract art pieces by Australian-Chinese artist, Lindi Li. The aesthetic represents a celebration of the vibrancy of the T’ang Dynasty and no, this is not a Chinese version of the American 80’s soap opera. It’s China’s culturally rich golden age, perfectly reflected in the timelessness of the fit out.

As desirable as its highly revered Michelin-starred sister restaurants across Asia, it certainly has big shoes to fill (most likely Jimmy Choos). And oh how it does! To provide context, T’ang Court, Hong Kong is a Michelin-star magnet, earning three Michelin-stars for seven consecutive years in a row and seriously, that place needs an in-house astronomist.

Take your pick from three set menus and an extensive range of a la carte dishes, all embracing the essence of Southeast China with panache. Pair your choice with a bespoke wine (of which there are plenty) and who knew us mere mortals could access this level of culinary quality.

We could bang on about the menu’s specialties all day long but in the spirit of ‘less is more’, we’ll stick to a few absolute standouts. There’s only one thing better than traditional Cantonese Duck, and that’s a three-part dish paying homage to our favourite waterfowl. Indulge in the Duck Pancake with Chef’s special hoi sin sauce, Duck Bun with lychee and raspberry sauce and supplemental caviar, and Sliced Duck Breast and Leg in plum sauce. Talk about a quacker of a meal.

For something a little less embellished but still packing maximum flavour, the Sauteed Pearl Meat with ginger, shallot and Asian greens is an ancient crowd-pleaser which has stood the test of time. Or, if you’re channelling locally sourced seafood fresher than a pillow with a mint, it’s hands down the Spicy Black Tiger Prawn with roasted garlic. Salivating yet?

So for guaranteed Cantonese flavour authenticity, elegance and a one-of-a-kind dining experience, T’ang Court at The Langham Gold Coast is all that….and dim sum.

Where: Level 3, The Langham Gold Coast, 38 Old Burleigh Road, Surfers Paradise
When: 12pm – 3pm (lunch) & 5.30pm – 11pm (dinner), Wednesday – Sunday
