It was very expensive for very ordinary food. The choices were very limited and the chicken dish 2 of wanted was not available. The burgers we chose instead were boring and anyone with no cooking skills at all could put them together. We did chose some entrees to share which were OK. On the positive side the table staff were lovely and happily moved us from our original table that was in the sun and unpleasantly hot

I have dined here with family and friends every time we holiday at Broadbeach and have enjoyed every occasion. Staff are friendly and efficient, food was great, the indoor and outdoor areas have a great vibe and atmosphere would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Broadbeach

We did the champagne lunch to celebrate the birthday of one of our group. The food was delicious & varied. The staff were attentive & friendly. He venue itself had such ambiance and it seemed that every second table was there to celebrate something. The champagne was free flowing for the whole of the 2 hour package. Definitely great value for money and somewhere I will return to when next on the Gold Coast.

Delicous lunch, I thought it was overpriced. I do think the prices have gone up and menu choices have been reduced.

This has become my new haunt ! From anniversary lunch to lunch with my daughter, it was both times outstanding. Your meal comes out quickly & is delicious. Wait staff are very friendly, helpful and are there if your require something further. I left my sunglasses on the table and the waiter came and found us in the pool area to return them. A definite yes from me.

We were there for a bithday lunch with 2 close friends. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waiter, Michael, who was apparently originally from Florida, was a delight.
Because it wasn't very busy he was able to give us great service and even had time for a chat.
We will be back.

This Restaurant was the perfect place to catch up with a work colleague that I hadn't seen for a long time. From the moment we walked in we felt relaxed and ready to enjoy the ambience and everything that this restaurant had to offer. Thankyou to the staff that looked after us and made us feel special. We will be back and soon!!

Regards and wishing you continued success....

We had the weekend champagne package and it was great value. Our waiter Chad really looked after us. It was unusualy cold so he provided blankets to wrap around our shoulders. Our glasses were never empty.

Our order for desert forgotten left waiting didn't bother in the end
Restaurant not busy
Not enough wait staff.
We were told on arrival the person celebrating their birthday would be offered a complimentary drink - never happened.
Disappointed.

We were seated, and then waited ages for a waitress to come over. Our drinks order didn't arrive for 40mins ( it came after we had already received our entree ). We had ordered the lamb, but our waitress was soooo slow, that she came back later and said " sorry the last lamb just went - someone put an order in just before me" - it went to a table that arrived after us!!
Food was nice but very over priced for what it was.

Fantastic food - almost didn't go because casino restaurants in us are terrible. All the open table reviews are spot on as this is a great place to eat. The lamb rump and fish of the day were great. Bravo!

Our first visit to Garden Kitchen & Bar and we very very surprised - it really doesn't feel like your part of the Casino complex which for me was a positive- Michael our server was amazing, knowledgeable of the menu, made recommendations of the food and wine and even talked us into trying a cocktail- it was amazing - the decor is very well done and give a classy but casual feel - we'll be back and be bringing friends and family - well done!
