You simply couldn’t find a cooler spot to head after a day at the beach than Apres Surf Kitchen & Bar. Just off the sands of Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast Highway, Apres Surf is a funky dive bar with great vibes and an even better selection of food and drinks. By food, we don’t mean ‘good by bar standard’ food either, we mean likely the most satisfying smorgasbord of international offerings you’re likely to find under one roof on the Gold Coast. Sure Australian seafood and dry-aged Angus beef feature prominently, but Apres Surf also go global with Chinese five spice wings, American-style slow-cooked ribs, hot Jamaican jerk chicken, delicate steamed Asian dumplings, hearty brioche burgers and one of the tastiest, most fragrant bowls of Vietnamese pho to be found in town – seriously. It fills up with good chat and good folk basically every day, so if you’re lining up a stellar feed it’s always wise to book ahead.
Great atmosphere and friendly service. We went on Thursday night when they have $1 dumpling and $5 VB deal so great value for money too!
