    My daughter and I enjoy degustation for our birthdays. Vanitas stands out as one of our all time favourites from the truffle butter to the flavourful tomatoes and the buffalo mozzarella to lovely surprises like the squid ink tuille, we loved every course. We would definitely come again. Loved it.

    We had very bad service. The server was non attentive and barely came to serve us. We had to track her down every time we needed something. She was talking with every other guests at their tables and it was awkward for us to call for her. It was a very uncomfortable experience. She didn’t ask us how the wine was or the meal. Food was very good.

    We had 6 course degustation menu. The food was really quite good. The service was ok, but lacked confidence and knowledge. The dining room is nice if not a bit drab - very beige - which is odd for a Versace restaurant. All in all the experience was fine. Nothing amazing but not bad. The wine list marks up were quite high and at times confusing and inconsistent.

    Good service although a little strained. Food presentation was attractive but the content was unacceptable. Fish of the day ( steamed red emperor) was well cooked but bland and tasteless. One menu read lamb rack and the other lamb loin. Husband ordered the rack but received the loin which was quite tough and not as expected. A pity as it was a special occasion and although we were served a complimentary dessert as compensation for the fish, it left us feeling very disappointed. Not our best fine dining experience sadly.

    Service and food were both fantastic. I told them it was my birthday and got extra special treatment which was lovely, birthday sign on the table, complimentary Prosecco and chocolate happy birthday on my dessert. Very thoughtful.

    The only negative was the lack of patrons on the night. We were one of three couples in the restaurant..

About the restaurant

As of Tuesday 14 November 2017 Vanitas reopened its doors with an injection of the Versace's DNA into the venue and has become an Italian dining experience to be enjoyed.

We have been inspired by our heritage which runs through the core of our Palace and we want to share this with everyone. From the minute the doors open, our family becomes part of your family.

The menu will focus on fresh, locally sourced ingredients prepared and plated by Vanitas Chef De Cuisine Andrew Musk and his culinary Team. The menu will feature starters, pasta dishes, main courses, sides and desserts. In addition, this menu will be complimented by a tasting menu with paired wines. The menu will change seasonally and will feature a daily special, however there a few key elements that will constantly provide a unique dining experience:

• All pastas will be handmade onsite daily by the Chefs

• Bread will be cut in the restaurant on a large butchers style block

Vanitas Manager Marco Pietrobon and his talented Team will provide elegant service delivered in a casual, warm and friendly environment. Nergroni, Aperol Spritz and Prosecco will be offered upon arrival followed by a range of Italian wines that have been carefully selected from the most important regions of Italy’s wine landscape. In addition, a range of award winning wines from Australia and New Zealand will accompany the Italian varieties.

Renowned among the best fine dining restaurants on the Gold Coast, Vanitas is an exceptional experience perfectly situated overlooking with sparkling lagoon with an exquisite 13-metre painting presenting the life of Gianni Versace on the opposing wall. The artwork illustrates the loves of Gianni's life and was inspired from his book "Do Not Disturb".

Vanitas restaurant sets the scene for sophisticated fine dining, celebrating the freshest in local produce while focusing on an ever-evolving seasonal menu.
