There is a new flavour in town! Award winning restaurant Vanitas at Palazzo Versace Gold Coast has recently undergone an extensive make over including a new chef, new kitchen and a brand new Italian focused menu that compliments the Italian heritage of its mother brand… fashion royalty, Versace! Previously a fine dining establishment, Vanitas has a more relaxed service yet still offers beautiful surroundings. Draped in the finest Italian furnishings with Italian marble floors and mosaics, the atmosphere encapsulates luxury. Moving to the Italian inspired menu was a natural progression for the venue due its Italian heritage. The menu reflects traditional Italian cuisine, with pastas handmade daily, freshly baked breads are sliced on butcher’s blocks in front of guests and all ingredients are sourced locally from the best Gold Coast suppliers.
