Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast

View from Palm Beach hotelWell, it wasn’t so much an adventure as me being at the Gold Coast for a work conference on a Thursday and Friday. Considering it was the weekend I asked my man if he wanted to meet me down there on Friday afternoon and we’d make a weekend of it.

Our weekend turned out to be of eating and relaxation – exactly what we were looking for. 🙂

Great places to eat while on the Gold Coast:

  • Onyx Restaurant
  • The Red Frog Cafe – awesome breakfast, we tried to go back but they get super busy; for a good reason.
  • We Love Alfresco – this place is run by friends of my Maltese grandparents. We grew up always going out to eat at their restaurant – I just knew it has Tony and SIlvana’s place! If you really want authentic Italian food, here’s the place. It’s also cheap, just like real Italian food should be. They’re full of personality and when the bill arrived it came with a side of two shots of Kahlua, they look after their guests! Even if said guest had already had wine and a lemon-cello.
  • The Pantry – another great breakfast place!
