If you’re a local or just visiting our sunny home for a fleeting weekend, a long lazy lunch at Garden Kitchen & Bar, followed by an afternoon socialising on the terrace, is an absolute must-do activity on the Gold Coast. A vibrant addition to the culinary offerings at The Star Gold Coast, this venue is a total showstopper.
Before entering, make a mandatory stop for an Insta selfie with the cascading foliage of Garden Kitchen & Bar’s vertical garden wall. Once inside, you’ll find yourself lusting over the bright and whimsically decorated bar and dining room, with floor to ceiling glass doors at the rear that bring the outside in. Step through to the sun-drenched outdoor bar and dining area, affectionately labelled ‘the conservatory’, with high vaulted ceilings, lounges and a leafy outlook—perfect for that long lunch or a cheeky Sunday session.
Beyond the seriously stylish and architecturally-designed space, it’s no surprise food is the main event. We’d go straight for the oysters, charcuterie platters, Tasmanian salmon, garden-fresh salads or, for the meat lovers, there’s the full gamut of cuts off the grill and slow-cooked barbecue specialities. From Champagne Weekends to Sundays In The Garden, the list of themed events at Garden Kitchen & Bar is long and impressive. Grab your besties and make a date!
