I loved my experience at Absynthe! I decided to celebrate my birthday there with a big group of friends and the restaurant definitely lived up to my expectations. We enjoyed a special champagne cocktail in the lounge and then were seated at our table with excellent service. Every part of the meal was perfect, right down to the bread and butter!

A restaurant that truly delivers on fine dining. If you aren’t based on the Gold Coast, I can assure you, the drive / trip to dine at Absynthe is definitely worth your while. Had an absolutely delightful evening at dinner. The food was outstanding… so rich and full of flavor. Dessert is always my favourite course and the chef’s at Absynthe knew exactly how to deliver. I chose the Crème Brulee with a light sorbet…this was divine!
