We had dinner on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was fairly busy.
My wife and I shared some scallops and then she had local battered whiting and I had the gold band grilled snapper.
Both meals were well prepared and the fish seemed really fresh served with a small salad and chips.
Staff and owner were friendly nice people and the bill at $65 seemed pretty good
No AMEX though

What a busy little restaurant this is, and with good reason.

With fabulous views of the Southport Broadwater, Aqua Front was more than half full by the time we took our booked tables at 12.30pm for a relaxed Friday lunch. The menu has a strong seafood bias with choices across most popular local fresh selections such as Moreton Bay bugs and prawns as well as produce from NZ and the Territory.

One of us chose from the lunch time special menu and the other from the a la carte, with a little garlic bread to start. Both meals were perfectly cooked and presented. The salt and pepper calamari in particular was exceptionally tender, tasty and delicious; and the only complaint about the barbecued prawns was that there were just not enough!

Apart from the food, I think one of the reasons this establishment is so popular is the presence of the owners throughout service - taking orders, pouring wine, serving meals and clearing tables - while they interact in a very pleasant, upbeat mode with their guests.

It's just a pleasure to strike a place where everything is done just right. Good service; great ingredients; good cooking; courtesy and friendliness all round; and a nice positive vibe in the atmosphere.

Beautiful service, amazing food. I literally sliced my steak with a butter knife. Melt in your mouth goodness. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

After viewing the good reviews, we were very disappointed with the food. Started with oysters which were extremely small and tasted just ok. Next scallops which were drenched in soy sauce one couldn't taste or appreciate the scallops. Halloumi Cheese tasted tough and seemed overcooked. The BBQ Prawns were the pic of the meals. They were to be served with Jasmine Rice and butter but tasted more like normal boiled rice. Very very disappointing. If I had to be really critical, staff should realise, if a few entrees ordered to share, please do not bring them all at once, and a Gin & Tonic should be served with a slice of lemon. Our visit was very disappointing.

Their food is amazing!! We started with grilled shrimp. Yum!!! Then moved on to olive bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It's special due to how the balsamic vinegar is prepared!! Then the main course!!! Get the filet and the mushroom sauce!!! It's to die for!!! You can bring your own wine, so check out one of Australia's amazing wineries and bring your favorite!! The staff are wonderful and so friendly!!! You really need to treat yourself!!
