A refreshing, vibrant venue in the heart of Surfers Paradise that is quickly becoming the new favourite amongst locals, visitors, bloggers and Insta-famous socialites!

Some of the White Rhino favourites include the Prawn & Spanner Crab Fettuccine, the Black Angus Eye Fillet and of course, the Wagyu Beef Burger! ‘The White Rhino experience’ is a must try, saving you from having to make that terrible decision by covering both the sweet and the savoury cravings!

    Food was great. But after 1 hour we had to find a waiter to take our order. Then had to wait an hour for our food to arrive. For a 7:15 booking we didn’t eat until 9:15

    The waitresses were very rude, they looked like they didn't want to be there and spoke poorly to us. The line up to get in for dinner and drinks when we booked a time was ridiculous. It was extremely loud and difficult to have a conversation.

    What could have been a good dining experience was spoilt by the excess noise by a large group of yobbos, with probably one drink too many under their belt. The young girl looking after our table was very professional. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. We couldn't get out of there fast enough.

    Booked this restaurant for a Valentine’s Day dinner with my girlfriend hoping for a lovely night however it was the opposite. The service was poor as we ordered very soon after we seated but didn’t receive our drinks until 15 minutes after finishing our meal. We only received one drink which was gross, overpriced and not worth the wait. We didn’t have any water for the table which we asked for multiple times, then they served us the wrong drink so we ended up leaving as the wait wasn’t worth it. Although the staff were nice we barely saw them and didn’t enjoy our time at all.

    Was a good place to eat however food is a bit pricey and I’ve never had a parma the way this place does it. Very different. Alcoholic drinks were yummy but again pretty expensive. Could put a deal on like 2 for 1 to get more people in. Good vibe and good atmosphere

    Terrible service. Main meals came out before drinks. Empty plates just sat on table with no offer for desert or more drinks. Food was good but the servers were more interesting chatting to each other than attending to guests. Too many options in Surfers to bother coming back here.

    The main meals were delicious but when spending $32 on a fish dish you would expect a little more than a postage stamp size of fish. Grumpy waitresses. But good cocktails and great music

    I had booked white rhino for my birthday however my friends and I arrived to the venue to find that it was closed. I had received no email or text message to say it was closed. I actually received an email a couple of days before to confirm the booking. Left us very disappointed as we were so excited to try it out.

    The blonde girl with the braid in her hair was giving my table dirties and was rude to customers. She also messed up a drink order and tried to charge us for her mistake. We were sat outside and the tree was inconveniently placed in the middle of the table causing us to get rained on. Pasta was delicious however.

    Staff did not where masks ( either none at all or not worn properly ) despite state regulation requiring masks; Cocktail service very very slow; The staff gave the impression that good service for customers was their last and least priority.

    I would recommend to a friend depending on age group mainly younger people. The music was a bit too loud. Their were four of us and three out of four meals were very tasty but one meal the hamburger the meat was very under cooked and burger meat should be well cooked. . Your very pleasant sweet waitress didn’t know what a shandy was for a drink order but she does now. Cheers Narelle

Value for money, something for everyone, and the venue is incredible.
