It's easy to miss The Lamb Shop if you're relying on visuals as a guide. With its small, discreet shopfront and sparse, stripped-back, industrial-style interior, this eatery whispers rather than screams. But if you're relying instead on your nose, you could hardly miss the delicious aroma of spit-roasted meat wafting through the air in the heart of the Oracle dining precinct in Broadbeach. Follow that scent! You'll be amply rewarded.

In The Lamb Shop, Peter Gloftis has taken the tastes of his childhood and given them a twist. So pull up a seat at the bar overlooking the open kitchen, and watch the flames, and the chefs, in action.

Souvlaki is the order of the day - chiefly lamb, as the name suggests, though chicken also features. Add hand cut chips, lashings of mustard mayo and parsley (or onion, tomato, lettuce and tzatziki if you're seeking a lighter touch), wrap it all up in a warm soft pita, and you have slow food, delivered fast. Small plates and sides like cabbage slaw, organic grain salad and char grilled pita bread are also on the menu.

Prefer a selection of bar snacks to accompany that craft beer you've just cracked open? Mouth-watering options here include chargrilled everything - corn with oregano butter and shaved sheep's milk cheese; king prawns with garlic butter; octopus with lemon and olive oil. And how does house made pork sausage served with smoked organic yoghurt sound?

With the addition of the glittering ocean down the road, and gorgeous people strolling past without a care in the world, you could almost convince yourself you're in the Greek Islands instead of the Gold Coast.
