Fine Dining at its Finest
You always get a sense of luxury at George's Paragon Seafood Restaurant at the exclusive Sanctuary Cove resort.

Wet Weather Didn't Dampen Experience


Not only is the setting and decor just beautiful, but the service is traditional silver service which makes you feel kind of special. The wait staff are so attentive and even bow and curtsy when they present and serve your food. From now on I want all food given to me with a bow or curtsy.



The food is just as exceptional and what is great is that everyday from 11am to 10pm they have half price on the whole menu. Please note that the menu already reflects the discounted costs - some people try to halve the menu prices which would be practically giving the food away. Remember this is fine dining, so the prices would be on the high end to begin with.



The menu is pretty extensive with lots of choice. It is a Greek seafood restaurant, so of course there is lots of seafood and Greek inspired flavours and dishes, however there are plenty of things like pasta, steaks, salads and more to choose from. You can see the full menu here.

It's really delicious food - I have eaten about 5 times here and the quality never drops, even when they are really busy, which is most times. My friend and I ordered Takayuki with Pita Bread and Oysters to start, then Steak Diane with mash and vegetables and Fish of the Day, which was salmon, plus you got half a bug, a large prawn and chips. We had a glass of wine each and the bill was just under $100 in total. The food was so yummy - perfectly cooked, served hot and presented beautifully.

Takayuki yum


The views around the marina are stunning and the overall feel of the place is just super classy. It's a great place for a date or special occasion. Unfortunately last time I visited it was pouring with rain which dampened the view somewhat, but inside was as bright, elegant and cheerful as ever.

If you're looking for something a little more casual then try the Pizza Wine Bar next door, for equally great food, drinks and views.

To get to Sanctuary Cove you take the Oxenford Hope Island exit off the M1 motorway and follow the signs. It is about 30 minutes drive north from the Gold Coast. It has plenty of free parking on site.

It is open from 11am to 10pm seven days a week - which means that the menu is actually never full price, but I guess, half price menu sounds better than having no hook.



Either way it's incredible food, wonderful service, lovely setting and it won't bankrupt you. It's not super cheap, but you won't find many dishes over $20 - you need to remember what the prices in an equivalent fine dining restaurant would be. For exceptional food served with style this is a must visit.

Sounds amazing! Looked at the menu so much to choose from. Even the set menu looks worth it for what they give you.
