Back again 6mths since our first visit this time for a special birthday celebration. Staff and this venue are just wonderful. Such a beautiful restaurant without being pretentious or stuffy. Prime table overlooking the night markets on the foreshore. Of course the food is the real star. Abalone in a 24hr broth, unctuous lamb belly, roared dory with 62c egg,... More

View - check. Service - check. Wine - check. Food - check. Dessert - check. Everything was fantastic from the moment we walked in the door. Every single staff member was friendly, cheerful and full of energy. Our server, Momoko, guided us with the best food, wine and service. The Tasmanian Salmon was so amazingly delicious and so full of... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend's friend who wanted to come down to the coast and visit us and have a wonderful night out at this so called exclusive upmarket restaurant. Therefore as we live on the Gold Coast we decided to check it out and were not impressed , the service was on the whole very good,... More

Hi there robell2015 and thank you for your feed back. I am disappointed to see that you did not enjoy your experience with us and we have taken your feed back on board throughout.

Stayed overnight at Soul and dinner, whilst expensive and despite some negative reviews was very good. Breakfast was very basic but included in Tarif and just OK, nothing special. The whole hotel seems a bit dated and appears older than it actually is.

Booked for my partners 60th birthday. The venue's decor is beautiful. It was not a busy night and even though it was dark and you cant see the view of the ocean, it seemed that all guests were seated at tables side by side against the windows, so there was no privacy or for us sense of romance with other...

I'm not sure if this is fair to review as I was disappointed after my first visit 2 years ago. It was not what I was expecting. The service was awesome unfortunately we felt the chef was trying too hard to give you something different on your plate.

We`stayed at the Peppers Soul resort and our breakfast was in this restaurant. Neither my wife or myself were overly impressed by what was on offer. I had the scrambled eggs and they had been overcooked and when we asked for a coffee were separately charged $4.50 each for the privilege on top of $35 per head for breakfast. Just... More
