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.
We had to change the people on our booking last minute and there was no issues, the food came out quick and tasted great and the staff were always quick to serve with a smile! Highly recommend it - great cocktail menu too ;)
Amazing loved every bit of it! Fantastic service and great food and drinks! Rum & chocolate tasting board was amazing! Will definitely go back and will highly recommend. The live band was superb too!
Great atmosphere, food, music and fun... the selection of spirits is unrivalled, and served up just right. loved it....:-) best we keep it a secret.
The team at Cambus Wallace never fail to deliver with great food, drinks, service and atmosphere. Definitely one of, my favourite places to go on the coast
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.
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.
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.
