We had a beautiful meal, excellent service and the manager Jason was terrific to talk to. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Jason is obviously very passionate about Seaduction and the Chef is obviously cut for the same cloth. The meals were spot on, the drinks were tasty, there was a surprise (free) entree and the views spectacular. There... More

I spent the lunch here with friends. We ordered different mains. The meat and seafood courses are good. Both red and white are nice but champagne is much more better. To short, worth trying if you want somewhere to relax with nice food.

We came to Seaduction based on a recommendation from our hotel. We were looking for a quality seafood restaurant with a view. We ordered the abalone and the crab and scallop bisque for entrees, and had the tandoori grouper and trout for mains. We can honestly say that this was the single worst tasting food we have ever had, and... More

My husband and I spent our one kid-free holiday day having lunch here and were utterly disappointed to say the least. We spent nearly $500 (for two) on the tasting menu and my hubby went home to have a ham and salad roll. The food was not enjoyable at all. I like salty food, but two of the four savory... More

This is a bargain luncheon place. The daily special sheet is about 30 percent cheaper and than a la carte ordering. The wine list by the glass is pricey but well chosen. I did find the chicken confit to be very salty so would avoid that. The chocolate desert is wonderful. And they do serve good espresso. The view is... More

Location is superb overlooking the flood lit Surfers Paradise beach. The abalone taster & a bread was a nice complimentary opening touch. Our two (different) fish mains were adequate, presented well and tasted very nice. The large side serving of potatoes was more than adequate but a needed accompaniment. The sweet was an embarrassingly tiny serve. Serving staff were pleasant... More

This was part of my birthday celebrations. We had the 8 course degustation and matching wines. Experienced exquisite food, perfectly matched wines and a stunning view of the moon rising over the water. An amazing experience.

Had a wonderful experience here for my Birthday last Friday night. The setting is intimate and yet relaxed. The staff were very attentive, not pretentious at all, we were made to feel very at ease. We are a bit on the conservative side when it comes to dining out so chose the Wagyu Sirloin and the Ballina Chicken Breast, both... More

Came here as a couple, with our five year old. He was adequately taken care of with the usual kid's menu choices, and an ipad, which left us to the cocktail menu and an a la carte feast. Service was excellent, with assistance given when requested in making choices, and an interesting explanation given when our chosen bottle of champagne... More
