Arrrrrriba! For a lively Latin experience in the Gold Coast, head on over to Broadbeach Waters where you’ll find Comuna Cantina, a Latin American-inspired street food joint serving up everything from tacos to tortas (Mexican burgers), and of course plenty of exotic cocktails to wash it all down with. You’ll find Comuna Cantina situated inside the Pacific Fair shopping centre on Hookers Boulevard, making it the perfect way to end a day spent indulging in a bit of retail therapy, or to kick off an evening out with friends. To be sure of snagging a table, making a reservation in advance is advised.
After making waves over in Brisbane CBD, Comuna Cantina are now bringing their Latin American vibes to the Gold Coast’s Broadbeach, serving up street food favourites with a focus on being healthy and nutritious, as well as so colorful that you won’t want to tuck in before they’ve been Instagrammed. And it's not only the food that will have you reaching for your camera, the interior design has been carefully thought out with pretty pastels, minimalist furniture and neon signage – a cliche cantina this is not. Bringing together the best dishes from around Latin America, the menu at Comuna Cantina features everything from breakfasts to smalls snacks and larger mains. Start your day off with a Latin American-inspired acai bowl paired with a pastel pink rosehip and hibiscus latte, or go all out at lunch or dinner time with some street food.
Some of our favourite dishes include the picanha churrasco (a Brazilian barbeque dish with chargrilled steak, quinoa, black beans, fried banana and chimichurri), the arepas (a Colombian/Venezuelan taco pocket with a range of fillings like pulled pork) and the fish burger (chia and coconut crumbed fish with guacamole, salsa and Mexican slaw). Also be sure to try Comuna Cantina’s famous plantain chips, too. Located inside the Pacific Fair shopping centre on Hookers Boulevard, Comuna Cantina is equally as popular for lunch as it is for dinner and cocktails in the evening.

We booked for a table of 8 earlier in the day. Once we arrived we got comfortable and were all about to order when we got asked to switch tables for the convenience of another party that was arriving. My friend joked can we have a free drink then, the waiter replied no. However once we moved tables, he instead returned to us with a complimentary tasting board of chips and dips. Everyone's meals came out quickly and all was delicious!
To start off with, when ordering our meals the girl serving us had no customer service skills and was not happy to help us. Arriving during happy hour, we asked the price of cocktails. She told us sarcastically that prices were on the other side of the menu and I pointed out it was happy hour, no prices were listed. She said it was $10 martini’s, so I asked for one with a Nutella rim, only to be told those ones were full price. We ordered food which was terrible. Somehow they got confused and only brought one main meal out, asking when we wanted the other one. We told them we wanted both mains at the same time. As a couple going to dinner, we wanted to eat the meals together, so we were waiting for the second main to arrive. It didn’t. We eventually had to call someone over to ask what was going on, to be told the meal had been forgotten. No apology, terrible customer service. The only thing positive about the experience was that the drinks were good.
Customer Service Awesome! Food not great. $13 for a small bowl of crispy chicken, unfortunately zero flavour. Tacos were ok but the toppings were definitely not fresh which was evident by the discolouration in the salad and the funky taste of the corn. The meat was only luke warm. The fried bananas were the saving grace for the night. Unfortunately a stuff up with our order meant desert went for over 45minutes and we were served one. Finished that and had to remind the waitress we were still waiting for the other one. Once again though the customer service was really good.
Great atmosphere! Stunning cocktails & yummy food! All round 10/10! Has a great casual feel, but you can still dress up and not feel out of place. Cocktails are pretty and yummy. The food is super tasty. Lots of fresh flavours yum yum yum! Can’t wait to go back!
