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.
Booked a table for 2 for dinner and drinks. Great place to relax and enjoy shared plates. Food was tasty and reasonably priced. Recommend for food or just a drink at the bar,
Food and cocktails was very nice but it was so cramped and wait staff were so busy it took too long to get served. The staff were all very nice.
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!
