Sit in the breezy courtyard watching the passing parade of locals and holidaymakers on this bustling Tedder Avenue corner, and you know you're in the heart of the Gold Coast. A plate of plump, fresh Pacific natural oysters and a glass of crisp white complete the picture of relaxed coastal dining. Unsurprisingly, the menu has a seafood dish to satisfy just about any appetite, from the decadently rich signature crab lasagne in tomato and abalone cream, to a selection of light, fresh fish - choose from sashimi or carpaccio of king fish, tuna and ocean trout. If seafood doesn't appeal, there is a towering salad of juicy hoisin-glazed duck layered between mandarin pancakes and Chinese cabbage. The dessert menu might seem a tad limited compared with to the extensive savoury menu, with a handful of old favourites and a couple of creative options such as chocolate marquise - dense chocolate cubes paired with refreshing raspberry sorbet and raspberry and mint salad.
