Joining the epic line up of bars and restaurants that have made Jupiters as much a foodie hub as it is an entertainment destination in the last 12 months, the new Garden Kitchen & Bar is the fresh new spot you never knew the Gold Coast was missing.
From the lush vertical garden wall greeting you at the entrance to the bright, whimsical décor inside, every inch of this new venue reflects the laid-back but sophisticated GC lifestyle. But once you drag your eyes from the tropical surrounds, you’ll find that it’s all about the food and drink here, and we’ve got five irresistible reasons why you should make plans to go and check it out this weekend.
#1. Early morning pink pitaya bowls
Big day of surfing, swimming and shopping ahead? Or perhaps you just plan to relax by the pool? Dishing up scrumptious breakfasts like the pitaya bowl with Queensland banana, toasted muesli and seasonal fruit, the golden sweet corn fritters topped with avocado, tomato salsa and crème fraiche or seriously indulgent plates like the Belgian waffles with mascarpone, maple syrup and chocolate sauce, this spot has everything you need to kick start your morning – including 100% Arabica coffee.
#2. The ultimate outdoor dining experience – indoors
You’re on the Gold Coast, Queensland’s vibrant, outdoor paradise – you don’t want to spend any more time inside than you have to! Garden Kitchen & Bar will give you the outdoor experience inside, with lush cascading greenery, plenty of natural light streaming in and a breezy deck or airy conservatory to dine in, whether you pop in for an early breakfast before you hit the beach or kick off a Saturday night at the uber glamorous bar. Bonus, you don’t have to cancel your plans if it rains.
#3. The signature Chef’s Rotisserie
Look, you could go to Garden Kitchen & Bar and sit down to eats like crispy crab cakes, spicy prawn stir fry or a hefty Wagyu rump steak from the grill, and have a damn delicious time doing it. But what you really want to do is order the chef’s rotisserie. Their signature dish, with a daily changing meat selection, it roasts away on the spit all afternoon for a tender, juicy feast, served up with smashed potatoes, fresh rocket salad and condiments.
#4. Cocktails worth skipping dessert for
While the honeycomb ‘cheesecake’ is a temptation not easily resisted, it’s the cocktail list you’ll want to make friends with here. Shared in pitchers or kept all to yourself, sips like fruity sangria and classic concoctions will have you wanting to stay for hours, with craft beer and wine on tap for when you’ve sampled your way through the list.
#5. It’s all about the produce
With Australian producers showcased like rockstars on the menu, sampling seasonal, local produce is reason enough to hit this eatery. And what would a garden kitchen be without it’s own vibrant green patch? You’ll find herbs from the kitchen’s very own garden sprinkled across your dishes, as well as home grown vegetables supplemented by those from local farms.
With breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks all on the cards at this lush Gold Coast bar and eatery, you’ll want to visit more than once! Find Garden Kitchen & Bar
