Each dish is served with love from local and organic ingredients that have been nurtured from the ground up, giving every customer handmade, simple dishes – the way only mamans’ know how. Come home to mum, at Maman.

The waiter who served us was excellent. He gave us a thorough rundown of the menu and suggested some great meals. I had the ocean trout and it was exquisite! The ambience was on point. Will definitely be coming back to Maman again!

We had such an incredible time at Maman. From the booking experience and assistance with flexibility on a busy Friday night. The staff were incredible, you don’t find this level of service on many places on the Gold Coast at all. You could tell the care and level of detail to the menu and the story of the restaurant. Food was exceptional and fairly priced for sharing. The cocktails were delicious and unique to what you typically find. Can’t wait to go back again!

I’ve been here a few times and I love it! However I was so disappointed to be charged 10% extra on a Sunday… I’ve been a local all my life and I’m aware not many business go down that path..

We arrived early having booked a table a few days earlier having Been eyeing up this restaurant for ages & had the opportunity to visit. We were given seats at the bar as the restaurant was busy & our table wasn’t ready. This was fine as allowed us time to have a drink & check out the menu. In fact we’re able to start trying the nibbles out whilst still at the bar. We were then then to a table - small one for 2 & then by luck one of the booths came free & we were given this. This was awesome as meant we had more room. The service was spot on & the food top notch. I’ve not fine dined a lot in QLD as not easy to find restaurants close to home & get there & back if you wish to have a drink or two! Anyhow this experience was bar the best I’ve had in QLD, and as good as restaurants in Melbourne & London. Thank you to all the team who made us feel so welcome from the second we arrived with great service, ambience & meal to boot! Definitely be back - thank you!

The food and drinks were delicious. One of the waitresses didn’t wear a mask the entire time we were there. She also was a little pushy I found when it came to ordering as soon as we sat down. Overall I was happy with the experience.

Everything about Maman is exceptional. From the friendly and knowledgeable staff, to the ambience and of course the food itself, our dining experience was impeccable. All the dishes were amazing, the standout was the beef carpaccio! Would highly recommend for any occasion - 10/10!!! We will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.

We have been to Maman several times now. Every time the food is beautiful, the drinks are fantastic (especially the chilli Marguerita’s) and the service is always great.
The friendly service and great menu will keep us coming back!!

We had a lovely meal with great table service. It was however very noisy which did detract from the ambience. Crowded tables - even in COVID times - and echoing concrete floors. But food was wonderful.

Hefty mark up on wine! After dinner & sweets told we have 10 min to vacate our table as it’s been booked out to someone else! Really, how embarrassing, I had invited a friend for her birthday, had to down our $77 bottle of wine and go! I booked the table 3 weeks in advance and at no time was I told there is a time limit. This needs to be made clear on their website. Won’t be back!

Service was wonderful and staff were so friendly! Menu had a large range of food options, including some vegan options. Mains were amazing, very filling and great value. Starters were also delicious but not so great value. However, it’s expected for such a beautiful restaurant in prime location. Will definitely return to try the rest of the menu.

This was our second visit to Maman - excellent food, wine, ambience and staff.
But why no espresso machine??? We were advised that we could get a coffee across the road, which is a bit like going to Bunnings and being told to go elsewhere for paint.
Even with that small niggle, we will be visiting Maman when next of the Gold Coast.
