    Arrived at 5:30 for a six course degustation (the only option on booking for both time and menu). We were the second table in and were seated next to the front desk. Noisy, busy and cold. Disappointing. Food was well executed but we were given a four course menu with no option for the six we were looking forward to. Booked one experience and sadly had another, altogether different experience. Left feeling sad and unlikely to recommend Little truffle.

    For some years the Little Truffle has been our” go to” place for special occasions. I’m so glad it has survived the recent difficulties and continues to offer the best food and service. Bravo!!

    Don’t normally write food reviews but feel compelled after dining last at Little Truffle, the whole experience from the service to dining was exceptional. I had an entree of steak tartare followed by beef cheeks, for me these dishes were beautifully prepared and presented. Whilst not cheap ( at $225 inc gratuity) as a special occasion dining experience, Little Truffle is without peer on the Gold Coast, well done Mike Cobb

    The air conditioning was not working properly so we were quite uncomfortably hot. This was quite disappointing. The food and service was excellent.

    This little restaurant is a great find for good old fashioned quality dining. The quantity of food provided was excellent. The food was good and so was the service. Although dim lighting is 'ambient' it was just a little too dark. Good effort.

    The food was divine, we had the degustation with wine paring OMG! . The service was impeccable. The ambiance and decor was regal making one forget that the venue is next to the GC highway.

    Great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The food has been carefully considered with the presentation and flavours you would expect from a fine dining restaurant. The service was excellent - pleasant and attentive but not bothersome.
