About Cambus Wallace
A shipwreck claiming six lives can never be a good thing. But if the tragic downing of The Cambus Wallace off the Queensland Coast in 1894 inspired more than the name behind this cool venue on the Gold Coast Highway then, well, it’s decent consolation. Residents and frequent visitors to Nobby Beach know The Cambus Wallace very well as a trendy cocktail and tapas bar, upmarket yet undeniably casual and friendly. If you can squeeze a spot (booking ahead is always recommended) at this popular Gold Coast favourite, grab a drink and explore as much of their incredible range of share dishes as you can, from crumbed lamb cutlets and juicy pork belly to truffle mushroom arancini and the eye-bulging Walk The Plank platter of meats, cheeses, fruit preserves and nuts. Start off with some kale, kumara and carrot chips or hang around for molten chocolate cake or house-made panna cotta to make sure it’s an unforgettable eating experience – but we’d bet that’s already happened anyway.

If you're looking for a quiet drink out don't come here, really awesome blues playing all night very loud and makes you want to dance. Really awesome atmosphere, great service, great food and even better cocktails. Little gem in nobbys, would highly recommend for a mid week drink. Very reasonable prices. Will be back again.
Not my first time here and not my last.. This prohibition style bar has a great selection of rums, whisky and bourbons topped off with food that is almost perfect, for both the carnivore and vegetarian.
Would definately go again. Tiki Tuesdays are awesome. Sliders were delicious, music was groovy, the whole place is just awesome. Staff were really awesome too.
It was an amazing experience with great food, service, drinks and atmosphere. It was a whole new level of hospitality- didn't even feel like I was in Australia!!
Cambus Wallace is a great place to catch up for drinks with friends or have a meal. We are regulars and love the food, atmosphere and service. Its a must when on the Gold Coast.
The Cambus Wallace is a great place to spend time. A good selection of craft beers, the best selection of rum and whiskey I have seen and tasty tapas.
This is a place with live music and atmosphere(And there are not many pubs on the Gold Coast with Atmosphere). It is done up like you are in the hull of an old ship and there is an impossible number of rums on the drinks menu. The food is pub food and the $5 sliders on Tuesday night are tasty and good value. A fun place to go.
Great ambiance with great music to suit. The food and drinks were also good. All staff are friendly and well presented. Will be heading back to Cambus Wallace very soon!
Loved it. First time here and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Friendly staff and service was great. I was very impressed with the music playing vinyls. Really took me back. They also really loved their music and were so knowledgeable about all music. Will definitely be back.
Lovely bar in Nobby Beach. The staff were super helpful and friendly. We had the vegan set menu, the food was amazing and it came out quickly. Lots of drink options too. Only downfall is it can get quite loud when busy and it's hard to have conversations in a group
Great bar, food, atmosphere and staff. I thought a 6pm dinner might be a tad early although we were in no rush for dinner when we started trying the awesome cocktails/rum selection. Have already organized another visit.
Great place to go for a few drinks or a tapas meal. We had a number of shared plates between three and it was very nice and reasonably priced. Well worth it. Great atmosphere with music played on Sunday evening.
Great atmosphere and food was superb. Staff were friendly, cheerful and very helpful with selection of food and drinks. Great place to just relax and have drinks as well. Highly recommended.
The Food was good, Great customer service, blues band was great only spoils by the shape of venue which caused acoustics to bounce of side walls and be muffled
great place to hang out and food is top notch and very reasonable for the amount you get on each plate! will definitely come back again!
Always such a good atmosphere 👌. Best place to hang out with friends on a sunday and the food is always good 10 out of 10.
Best place I've been to in a long time , would definitely recommend to anyone. Best atmosphere and the espresso martini s are to die for.
Nice cosy atmosphere with tasty beers and cocktails to choose from. Selection of tapas was great too. More of a bar than restaurant still catered well for a family birthday dinner.
Excellent food, service and entertainment. A great place to meet friends for a quiet drink or a meal. Great to have live music that was enjoyable and not too loud.
Best bar on the coast by far, fully recommend everyone to go 👍👍 The espresso martini's were especially good and the food was very delicious
