What's a little harder to quantify, however, is the number of top quality restaurants the region boasts - so many that it's nigh on impossible to count them. To make your choice a little easier, we've compiled some of the Gold Coast's best eateries. 1. dbar Cafe - Coolangatta dbar is one of Coolangatta's trendiest hotspots. Located in the beautiful Rainbow Bay, it offers the perfect triumvirate of unique art, exquisite food and stunning views. The art gallery, which has been on site since 1925, features regularly-changing exhibitions from a variety of local artists and perfectly sets the relaxed ambience of the place. The views over the bay towards Snapper Rocks, Duranbah Beach and Point Danger, provide the most majestic backdrop for your meal. And the food, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, you're in for a treat. Tokyo broth noodles, Karaage chicken, and spiralled zucchini pasta are just some of the mouthwatering dishes on offer. While you're in Coolangatta, check out the modern and contemporary cuisine at Bellakai or the delicious dishes at the picturesque Rainbow Bay Surf Life Saving Club. 2. The Fish House - Burleigh Heads Burleigh heads has no shortage of excellent seafood restaurants, and the Fish House is right up there with the best of them. Exquisite, freshly-caught seafood dishes served in a variety of innovative and creative styles, an extensive list of local wines, and stunning coastal views saw it rank in Australia's 'TOP 100' Restaurants in the Gourmet Traveller's Good Food Guide 2014. Other highlights of the Burleigh Heads culinary scene are the sexy and chic Bin 12, brainchild of renowned hatted chef Daniel Ridgeway, and Oskars on the Beach, which serves up modern and award-winning cuisine in a typically relaxed setting. 3. The Cuban - Broadbeach A colourful and aromatic slice of South American life has found its way to Broadbeach's new beachfront precinct - The Oracle. The Cuban serves up spicy and authentic dishes including chorizos a la miel, crocante calamari, pollo de la Havana and many more. Even if you're not hungry, pop in and enjoy the culture and character of one of world's most exciting countries by trying a few of their wild and exotic cocktails. This is the place to get the Broadbeach party started. Other Broadbeach hotspots include Koi, which serves up delicious tapas and share platters in a decadent dining atmosphere, and Moo Moo The Wine Bar + Grill, renowned as one of the Gold Coast's best Steak Restaurants. 4.
