Whether you’re headed to the Gold Coast to celebrate your Bucks, Hens or simply just looking for an excuse to eat out, Wickedstag has got you covered with this complete list of the must visit restaurants!
Get your Mexican on at Bonita Bonita, where you can enjoy $5 Tacos and Sangria on Thursdays! We smell a bargain… and is that Tequila? Yep. If you love the dimly lit interior and Frida Kahlo feature wall, then you’ll also want to visit sister restaurant Frida Sol in Palm Beach. Who doesn’t love a taste of Mexico?!
Bonita Bonita – 2460 Gold Coast Hwy, Mermaid Beach
Frida Sol – 1176 Gold Coast Hwy, Palm Beach
You really can’t go past Justin Lane for a delicious Pizza or Pasta overlooking the beautiful Burleigh Beach. JL is extremely popular with the locals! Choose from four different seating options across two levels, we recommend trying to snag a spot on the rooftop which comes with its own bar and house DJ! Sip on some tantalising cocktails as you fill your belly.
1708-1710 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
The latest addition to the ever growing social hub is Burleigh Pavilion, with arguably the best dining view on the coast. This eatery is MASSIVE, with an indoor and outdoor area providing panoramic views of Burleigh Beach. Try and keep your eyes away from the shore and on the conversation at hand, we dare you! It also doesn’t hurt that you can taste some of the yummiest cocktails and brand new menus never dissapoint!
43 Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads
Okay so one friends craving Dumplings, the others yearning for pizza and you kind of feel like a big juicy burger? Don’t fret, thanks to the Collective you can have it all and yes at the same time even! The genius Palmy restaurant has combined a series of restaurants and different flavours into one convenient location! Very suitable for those who just can’t agree or for anyone who likes to try it all. There is Italian, Diner food, Japanese and Mexican… to name a few.

For the men, or ladies, who love a good hearty steak! Look no further than Mike’s Kitchen for your own slice of melt in your mouth deliciousness. Prepare to get messy, as you cover yourself in BBQ sauce from your next level ribs. This place is sure to line your stomach and maybe even your heart as you fall in love with some good ol’ meat. Leave your vegan mate at home!
2 Gooding Dr, Merrimac
Longboards Laidback Eatery & Bar… the name says it all! The local Surfer’s haven where you can dress casual and enjoy a juicy burger with the lot! While the atmosphere is cruisy, the service is 5 star with live music on weekends and its close proximity to the heart of Surfers, Longboards is definitely worth the visit!
Q1 Resort & Spa, Hamilton Ave & Northcliffe Terrace, Surfers Paradise
You may have heard of the infamous Milky Lane on Bondi Beach, well the popular eatery has opened a store on the Gold Coast, and we can’t stop raving about it. Scrumptious burgers, sick old school street decor and the craziest cocktail meets dessert hybrid we’ve ever indulged upon! This place is a VIBE and definitely one for the Insta story… foodies.
1/38 Cavill Ave, Surfers Paradise
For those looking to get a little rowdy and enjoy a great feed for a more than reasonable price, head on down to Cha Chas. Where you can BYO, sit wherever you like and reward your tastebuds with the delights of Japan. They have Sake, they have dumplings, spring rolls and whatever else your heart desires. Get absolutely plastered as you try and refuel your stomach without even a second glimpse by the super chill staff. This is the perfect start to any wicked weekend.
