    Which Gold Coast fish restaurants tend to be popular?

    Domanis Cafe Restaurant & Bar on Main Beach is one of Quandoo’s most recommended fish restaurants along the Gold Coast. Look out for the daily seafood special or the marinara house special which is packed with locally-caught king prawns, fried calamari, the daily fish catch fresh from the market and mussels. There's also an accompanying menu with meat and vegetarian options, plus excellent specials and fixed menu offers throughout the week. The Alpha Seafood Restaurant at Surfer's Paradise is another must-try. It is beautiful inside, with floor to ceiling glass windows looking out over the seafront, and the food is surprisingly affordable given the superb quality. Signature dishes include grilled barramundi fillets served with a zingy lemon sauce as well as Alpha mussels served in a garlic cream sauce. Just remember to book your table at the best Gold coast fish restaurants in advance to avoid the queues!
