    My husband and I ordered the Fish Barramundi and was so disappointed. It was cold and over cooked. The desserts - my husband ordered a cheesecake, was tasteless and just too sweet! I just wanted a plain ice cream with chocolate sauce that you didn’t even have. All and all very disappointing! We invited our friends to join us because the last time we were their was quite nice ! We won’t eat there for a while Thank you.

    Went to Southport yacht club for lunch yesterday with some friends from overseas, had a wonderful lunch, everyone enjoyed their choices, staff were friendly and efficient, the setting and atmosphere perfect, a little bit pricey but worth the money, a great place to take visitors.

    Wednesday roast including the beautifully cooked vegetables is excellent & we will continue to go there regularly.

    The location is unbeatable and we always bring guests to the SYC for the views like I did this afternoon. Whilst all 3 [salads] ordered for mains were nice enough, they did not blow away my overseas guest..! I was expecting the prawns to be plump and charred with a hint of spice similar to the amazing ones served when I had ordered this salad last time several months ago instead of the small boiled ones today. Also the chicken in the Caesars salad could have had herbs .mild spices or charred to enhance the flavours instead of the plain shredded version. They were kind enough though to replace the lamb with chicken in the 3rd salad so that was good of them. With so many top dining options now on the Gold Coast it would be awesome to lift the bar with just minor improvements to everyday dishes like caramelized pumpkin instead of cooked plainly..This combined with the magical views would then make the SYC one of the best dining on the GC.

    Lovely outlook over the marina and nice blue and white decor. Food was very nice (my linguine was a bit more chilli hot than I was expecting but I guess I should have checked!). Staff were friendly, we had a bit of a wait for our food, but apparently that's because we hadn't finished our garlic bread and they consider that a starter, so they were waiting until we'd finished. Overall, I'd go there again.

    As usual great food, great service and good wine. Ambiance excellent, although some would find the place a little noisy. I will definitely go again.

    Overall an excellent afternoon; unbeatable views, good service (although the wait time was very long (being a busy Sunday afternoon). I was hosting a group of 5 and my guests enjoyed their dishes with the slow cooked beef cheek red curry one of the best we've tasted anywhere; however my atlantic salmon salad was underwhelming and just about edible with the salmon overcooked and hence dry and the rest of the mixed salad was ordinary at best without much flavor, taste or texture. My usual gin and tonic perfect but the sangria on tap had a tartness unusual to sangria..My guests will be visiting again as overall it was an excellent afternoon.

    We love the location especially for entertaining guests and whilst the quality of the food in the past was inconsistent, with chewy steak and pretty ordinary fish on Thursdays, it has of late improved and been consistently very good. Please do keep that up, thank you!

    Our greeting on arrival was very welcoming, with no fuss obtaining admission, and as first timers, the necessities were explained very well. Ordering our meals was efficient, and delivery was prompt. The attending staff were friendly knowledgable, and very obliging. They were excellent. The meal was delicious, well cooked and presented, at a reasonable cost. We were most pleased, and will now make it a go to place.
