This is our second time dining at Ragdoll and first time with First Table. Our experience was every bit as good as the first time with excellent service and food. The atmosphere is relaxing and we love the music and decor. A great place for cheap cocktails and beautiful food.

Again an excellent experience at Ragdoll. We invited guests to join us for lunch knowing they would not be disappointed. The menu is interesting & imaginative and the portions are very generous. A Sunday lunch was a bit more relaxed so the friendly owner spent more time chatting with us. All in all another very pleasant dining occasion.

Wow! Ragdoll has insanely good food, an elegant and relaxed atmosphere, impeccable service and some of the best cocktails we've had in the Gold Coast. The kangaroo steak was cooked to perfection ❤️ You can't miss it

Food was exceptional starting with garlic bread and a prawn and crab ball. Lamb was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. Finished with a creme caramel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The food was amazing, we really enjoyed it. We had the seared scallops, crumbed king prawns, and crab & prawn pasta. So delicious. The service was really good too. We had our 1 year old with us and the waiter was very accommodating with her. We would definitely go back.

From walking in the door the night was one to remember. Atmosphere was enjoyable with good music,lowered lighting & seating was private so you're weren't involved in the next tables love life. Food quality was excellent with good serving portions & the service was attentive & knowledgeable. With reasonable cocktail prices at $10 it's a night with no negatives. I would recommend that people try Ragdoll dining as it's now our second time & we'll be back again.

Great starters and mains. The chorizo and halloumi starter was delicious!

- dined at Ragdoll Dining on

We were so impressed with this beautifully appointed casual dining restaurant. The decor and paintings were impressive and striking as you enter the Restaurant. Nicky our waitress was very personable and attentive running the restaurant and bar by herself. A very accomplished lady. Our Nepalese chef did a magnificent job with our meals. I loved my entree of spanner crab and prawn meatballs. My main dish was Japanese panka crumbed king prawns which came with beautiful sauces. Beautifully plated. The Restaurant is at ground level with no stairs to negotiate. Toilets are inside, however there is only one toilet each for male and female. The toilets are kept immaculately clean and clean hand towels are provided on a shelf. I highly recommend this Restaurant and we are looking forward to our next visit. The food was delivered quickly and was delightful to eat.

A delightful wee spot. The food was delicious and the service fantastic. Meals are a generous size too. We’d hoped to manage three courses but were more than satisfied with two. Great cocktails and a good wine selection. Highly recommend

Ragdoll Dining was a very stylish restaurant with great furnishings, paintings and colours. The helpful waiter brought an interesting menu that contained a variety of small dishes that could be shared. Everyone of them sounded delicious! We chose 3 plates- Prawn Gyozes ,Salt & Pepper Calamari and Zucchini fritters. All were beautifully presented with tasty sauces and garnishes and tasted delicious. This was topped off with a reasonably priced Prosecco. A very enjoyable lunch!

Our meal at Ragdoll was superb, wonderful seafood, especially the scallops! The Expresso martini was a special treat, with its own twist and the service was impeccable. Enjoyed the vibe and even the background music. Will definitely be back next time we're in town,

- dined at Ragdoll Dining on

Ragdoll was amazing!! From the fantastic expresso martini to every item of food ordered - it was a lovely taste experience. We cannot recommend this venue more highly. While their menu is not extensive - every item on it is cooked to perfection. This is number one on our list of places to return to when we holiday in Burleigh Heads again at Christmas.

My husband I had a fantastic evening at Ragdoll! Right from being greeted at the door till we left at the end of the evening. Service was great, cocktails were fantastic price and generous, food was delicious and generous portions and the service timing was perfect! We have not found a restaurant in a long time that ticked all the boxes, these guys know how to give their customers a dining experience to remember!

Stacey Dunks

A perfect place for an intimate dinner! We stayed here for hours and had such a lovely night. The service from our lovely waiter went above and beyond our expectations and the decor is modern yet cozy and welcoming. The food was impeccable and so was the cocktail list (the cocktail was grape infused gin is to die for). Just remember to order plenty of sides with your mains as they are on the smaller side and designed to be shared around! I would recommend Ragdoll and look forward to returning!

- dined at Ragdoll Dining on

This is a wonderful Restaurant to visit for a family, group or couple's meal. The food is some of the best that we have ever eaten on the Gold Coast. This was our second visit and we will be back again.

Kangaroo was cooked to perfection and the Crispy Chicken was juicy and flavorful. We tried these mains with a side a fries, which appeared lightly seasoned and rustically hand cut and accompanied by a fresh Aoli.
The Espresso Martini was well made and enjoyable as was the music. Excellent, professional service with just the right amount of attention. Would eat here again.

C Irwin

Great service, yum food. Awesome cocktail list

- dined at Ragdoll Dining on

Enjoyed our evening at Ragdoll! The decor is clean and fairly minimal, with fun artwork around. The music was a nice bit of 90s and 2000s throwbacks that brought back good memories.
It seemed the restaurant had only two staff, one kitchen and one front, and they got fairly busy so was quite impressed by the service. The food came out quickly, and the server was attentive to all tables in the restaurant. The flavours of the meals were good, although the dishes were not quite as described on the menu, which was a disappointment. The cheesecake dessert was also tasty, a good balance of tangy and sweet.
Overall a good experience that we would repeat. :-)

Perfect restaurant for date night! Cosy and intimate. Excellent service. Food was delicious. We started with the prawn & crab balls and arancini balls which were yum. Our mains were goldband snapper and a crab & prawn spaghetti. They were both really nice and the servings were generous. We shared a nice Shiraz.
