Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been travelling through Oz for several months now mostly self-catering but occasional treats out. Can’t think of many places as good as this. Fresh, vibrant flavours, friendly staff, we loved it

When visiting Berleigh Heads, do yourself a favour and visit this unassuming restaurant. Tucked away off Gold Coast highway on the west side and an added challenge of getting to the restaurant with current roadworks. This “little place” is a must. Two sittings: 5:30pm and...7:30pm, the first sitting gives you ample time. Gorgeous staff add to the experience. From cocktails to share plates, main and desert, I could not fault. I don't think I have been to a restaurant where cocktails AND food were next level amazing. Congrats to owners and wait staff on presenting a magnificent package.More

The Little Plate is a very special place to dine. The location is perfect, the waiting staff and owners are welcoming, the menu is amazing, with regularly alluring specials, and the standard of the meals is consistently excellent. The cocktails and desserts are also outstanding....I might have reviewed this wonderful place a few years ago, but it just keeps giving and it should be celebrated.More

What a fabulous little find this restaurant was. Book ahead as it’s only small and tucked away down a side street. It delivered amazing food and our server Ella had a great wit and humour.

Amazing food, great service and cosy (but not cramped) atmosphere. Staff were so lovely and and accommodating, I’m so glad they were able to fit us in for a last minute booking! Will definitely return if opportunity presents.

Our meal here was a highlight of our trip to Burleigh Heads. We ordered small dishes to share...everything was delicious and very generous serves...go with an appetite. Fish cakes with herb salad and caramel chilli sauce and the squid special with broad beans were our...standouts. Such warm and welcoming service in a special restaurant.More

The food was AMAZING!! My husband and I shared on entree, two mains and a dessert and everything was impeccable. The steak was the best steak I’ve ever eaten- they sliced it up for us as we were sharing and it was melt in your...mouth perfect. The garlic prawn pasta was to die for- chefs kiss! And finished with a yummy brownie! Everyone needs to go here!More

Thank you, The Little Plate, for an excellent lunch today seated outside at the front of your restaurant. Although your outlook may not be so fabulous, the food and the greeting and service from Ella, more than made up for it. Six of us sat...down for a delicious meal of salads, steak, popcorn prawns, spaghettini and lamb. Really enjoyed it. We would come again if we were in the area.More

What an absolute delight this little restaurant is. Not so little plates, great value, very respectable wine list, and fantastic food and service. You couldn't ask for more. Out of the way and pleasantly small, we loved it. Going back two nights in a row,...if we'd been there for three, we'd quite likely have gone again.More

A small unpretentious restaurant tucked away in a quiet street. The food is delicious and the Chef and staff are friendly and readyto please. Also very reasonable prices.

We were very excited to experience Little Plate… lots of friends have rated this restaurant. For us it was a little underwhelming. We had the tasting menu, in a nutshell all the salads were really fresh and tasty, unfortunately the hero of the dishes were...lacking flavour…. Particularly the fish cake and the pork belly. The twice cooked pork belly was dry , sucked out and tasteless. Fish cake was like eating congealed flour and water.felt like no consideration for seasoning was given to the dishes. The ceviche was yum. Deserts were great… bread and butter pudding too big for one serve. All well and good to have fancy chop sticks… fusion food etc… but consider functionality as well …silver slippery tools don’t make for a pleasant experience. Lovely little space with nice ambience.More

Very underwhelming. Expected quite cutting edge food, but instead the coconut curry was no better than most suburban thai, the lemon grass fish cakes were lacking in flavour and had a bready consistency instead of fish cakes. The pork dish was OK. Overall, not what...I expected and quite disappointing.More
