About Tonic on Chirn
About the restaurant
Some of the best cocktails on the Gold Coast are only the start of the attraction to this cool, quirky tapas bar on Musgrave Avenue in Southport’s Chirn Park area. A scintillating selection of share plates provides perfect company for expertly mixed drinks, fine wines and craft beers, calling on international culinary inspiration. From Asia hail gorgeous grilled pork gyoza and crispy wontons with duck and orange salad, fried lemon pepper calamari, marinated mixed olives and grilled halloumi lead the eastern Mediterranean delegation, spicy Spanish meatballs and sauteed chorizo with mushrooms and rosemary represent the Iberian Peninsula, divine smashed pavlova and an exquisite Australian cheese plate fly the local flag and things like cajun crumbed eggplant chips with roquette aioli are hard to place in one culinary category. Too much to choose? Leave it up to the chefs and their brilliant banquet menu, an orgy of international flavours bound to leave you promising a return visit.
