    While the food was excellent it was the the service that stood out and certainly something that “better known” restaurants could learn from.....all in all, a very pleasant lunch and afternoon..... thanks to everyone involved!

    Best hidden neighborhood gem. Great food, service and always relaxing. The risotto is one of the best in the Gold Coast and best value 3-course option.

    Always look forward to going to Carmody's , I was disappointed with the dish I ordered this time which is unusual. I ordered Sauteed Prawn & Moreton Bay Bug Risotto, the Seafood was overcooked and the Risotto lacked flavour. The other meals were great.

    As always, our night at Carmody's was wonderful. The staff are always so welcoming and this sets the tone for the rest of the evening. We were lucky enough to dine at a special rate of 50% off so that was an added bonus. The food was delicious and the service staff attentive. There is nothing to criticise at this venue and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys fine dining. My husband's oysters were delicious as were the unusual Spring Rolls, made of brisket and red cabbage. Our mains were steaks, cooked to perfection. We are looking forward to our next date night at Carmody's.

    Great service and presentation. Food was divine and very good value. The decor is nice, an older group of people but lovely spot for lunch. Extensive drinks menu also available.

    The food was excellent but the service started good and then puttered out to no service because our waitress was more interested in setting tables then serving us and no good bye nothing said to us considering it was my son's birthday. The Manager was lovely the waitress should find a job cleaning, regardless I still tipped although a farewell from our waitress would have cost her nothing!

    The food was brilliant, as was the service. Our waiter was very personal and went out of his way to please. I must admit I was surprised to find this within the sharks club. Thought the food and everything was amazing, I can only think and feel if Carmody’s was placed separately away from the club atmosphere it would help immensely with its atmosphere and feel. This isn’t to say a club is bad in anyway as it has its place and I do enjoy going to them at times, overall, I do highly recommend you try and find that special flower amongst the bouquet!
