This is a shocking place. Read the other reviews about the bad staff. They preference certain people over others. Beware of the knives. Something is very off about this joint. Do yourself a favour and enjoy a night out elsewhere!

Music was great and a great overall atmosphere but you desperately need new staff!! Bartenders serve who they want instead of who has been waiting the longest, had to wait about 15-20 minutes at the bar for 1 drink. Security are by far a lot...worse though and are extremely rude. Many people left the bar throughout the night because of their incompetence and overall attitude. The way they spoke to customers was disgusting. They were solely the reason for most of the fights that occurred too. The security guards also refused entry to everyone who didn’t fit standards and only let the hottest girls in after a certain time, made a lot of people angry outside and created a whole drama. I love Burleigh but from now on pink monkey won’t be somewhere that I or any of my friends go to and we go out a lot :( It’s so sad because it is one of the most lively places on the Gold Coast, but after my experience and reading the rest of the reviews on here it is clear that the pink monkey staff are letting down the business and will one day be the reason it closes down. The security refused to give me their name but it was the night of the 10th October 2021 at around 11pm. Locals love pink monkey but seriously get some new staff, they are ruining the venues name.More

This place needs to be shut down asap! You will be abused & threatened by the staff if you have a problem with the horrible food or $22 + cocktails with no alcohol (the worst cocktails on the Gold Coast) save your money and your...time!! Go next door to Justin Lane.More

Pizza was only ok, have had better elsewhere numerous times. Average staff service, went during Covid and mask wearing restrictions. Staff were very diligent in ensuring we wore masks and then proceeded to constantly wear them incorrectly ( nose and mouth exposed while serving our...food) which was simply frustrating. Not the worst experience I have ever had but also not the best. We wouldn’t go back based on that visit.More

So we were welcome to dine right up till they demanded to see our drivers license We were a hungry couple wanting a pizza The place was the least busy on the strip Easy to work out why ... Yes we have a table ......But you have to show us your license to prove where you live Ohh you are from brisbane? Well sorry we don’t serve people from brisbane (Brisbane currently has no lockdown and no restrictions on going to restaurants) So off we go and get Uber eats !More

We came in to pink monkey for a casual dinner. Our pizza mains came out before the entree (even though we asked for a break in between). The food has significantly gone downhill. When the pizza was bought back to the table it was cold...and rubbery. So sad as this place used to be so great! For $50+ a head we would have expected more.More

We are locals and wanted to give a new business a chance. When we arrived the barman upstairs was making a huge noise preparing for the night as there was hardly anyone around. We enjoyed the pizza but wanted to stay a while for drinks....We noticed that downstairs was quieter but was told by management that we couldn’t sit there and we were sent back upstairs even though we politely told them the problem. The manager said he would sort it out but instead had a real laugh with the barman in front of us which made us feel very unwelcome. We will never come back and have given our business to many other Burleigh venues that provide good customer service.More

My go to place, if you haven’t been check it out. Real Italian food fired pizzas (yes they have real fior di latte, so a little moister), yes in a real wood fire hence the little char on the edges. I can’t do conveyor belt...pizza after authentic Italian pizza, now I don’t have too....so happy! Pizza, an aperol jug, live music on roof deck with sea breezes and friends...what is better?More

Pizza was burnt, salad was lettuce only. Food overall was terrible. The table was a long coffee table height. Will never go back.
