We had dinner at LakeFront last night and were delightfully surprised by the quality of the food. Everything we had was perfect and the service was outstanding. This is wonderful fine dining at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend you give it a try.

Awarded Best European Restaurant in QLD/NT, LakeFront Bistro is situated in the Central Gold Coast suburb of Carrara in the beautiful French Quarter of Emerald Lakes. The lake side setting of the restaurant provides a stunning backdrop to a relaxing lunch or magnificent dinner. LakeFront Bistro's Head Chef Andrew Peaston is a veteran of the industry with more years experience in fine dining restaurants than he cares to admit to, but years of experience show with the amazing dishes that he is able to consistently serve. The Modern Australian menu that Andrew has created for LakeFront Bistro boasts a French influence and still manages to include some traditional dishes that many people find difficult to find on the Gold Coast. In addition to the menu, there are a number of "off the menu" specials that are available from time to time. These special dishes have previously included the likes of the Grand Mariner Souffle, with orange sorbet and brandy snap basket; or the Veal steak with carrot gateau and steamed spinach with a red wine jus. Not only does LakeFront Bistro offer an excellent dining option to small parties or couples, but it also boasts a private function room suited for up to 60 guests. This private function room is perfect as a wedding venue (with ceremony options available), or to service a work function with many options available.
