Renowned restaurateurs opening new venue in Burleigh Heads

By Andrew Bell

Burleigh Heads, one of the Gold Coast's fastest growing suburbs, is about to transform with the addition of an exciting hospitality project. If you've driven past the area recently you will have noticed extensive construction going on around the building that formerly housed Oskars, Point Break and Nook. 

This beachfront building is being refurbished and repurposed as a restaurant and bar under the name Burleigh Pavilion. We've taken a look at this exciting development as well as the wider Gold Coast hospitality industry. 

The Gold Coast is fast becoming an incredible location for wining and dining.

A new addition to the Gold Coasts thriving restaurant scene

In early December the $10 million renovation of this iconic building will be open to the public. The brains behind the operation are the Sydney based property developers Ben May and Robert Magid , who have formerly developed iconic venues such as Mr Sippy in Bali, Mrs Sippy in Double Bay, as well as Pier One and the Harbour Rocks Hotel in Sydney.

The building itself is set over two levels and is absolute beachfront, offering expansive views out to sea. It's set to cater to 600 diners for lunch and dinner. Renowned chef Guillaume Zika will run the kitchen, including a full-service 235 seat restaurant called the Tropic and a more casual option called the Terrace. 

Its enviable location means beach-goers will be able to walk straight from the surf to the bar for a bite to eat and a drink. 

Burleigh Heads, one of the Gold Coasts fastest growing suburbs, is about to transform.

The thriving Gold Coast hospitality scene

Not even 10 years ago, the Gold Coast had a reputation as an area lacking in the world class dining options found in Melbourne, Sydney and other major capital cities. The Burleigh Heads development is yet another confirmation that our city has come a long way, and now boasts one of Australia's fastest growing and most exciting hospitality industries. 

From the Night Quarter Markets every Friday and Saturday to the countless new cafes and restaurants opening every month, the Gold Coast is now a great place to wine and dine. In fact, Rick Shores (the venue just under the new Burleigh Pavilion development) has just been recognised by the Financial Times as one of the top 100 places to eat in the country and last year it was named the best restaurant in QLD in the Delicious 100. 

If you're looking to move to the Gold Coast, or upgrade your current Gold Coast home you'll want to make sure there's great food nearby. Get in touch with the team at your nearest Ray White Surfers Paradise for help picking a location.
