Burleigh Heads restaurants and cafes 

Nestled between Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta, Burleigh Heads is the culinary ‘cool kid’ where people flock to dine and unwind in the relaxed beach vibe. Absolute oceanfront dining exists here where you’ll swear the fish on your plate has jumped straight out of the water, find authentic Italian on Justin Lane and drink in a funky café culture along James Street. Alfresco is taken to the next level (literally) with foodies heading up Burleigh Hill to chew with panoramic views out to the coastline. 

Palm Beach restaurants and cafes 

Once in the shadow of its neighbours Burleigh Heads and Currumbin, Palm beach is now the suburb du jour with a plethora of bars, restaurants and cafes opening what seems like every week. Now boasting more than 50 restaurants (and counting), the coastal town serves something for every palate from local bars, tapas joints to cutting edge foodie haunts scattered along the Gold Coast Highway. Make no mistake, while the laidback ‘Palmy’ lifestyle is reflected in its restaurants, the food is taken seriously (very seriously).
