Always alive with hungry diners, party goers and seaside revellers, Central Lounge is true to its name, being the central port-of-call for all social occasions in Surfers Paradise.

But seriously, where is all that happy chatter coming from? It's coming from Central's buzzing courtyard, of course! Occupying an awesome spot on one of Surfers' busiest streets, their canopies draw in surfers, shoppers, and anyone looking for a good time, from near and far. Surround yourself with the best company on the Gold Coast, let the electric atmosphere wash over you and indulge in any of their international comforts eats. Their kitchen is open until 11pm, so perfect for a late night dinner date with friends.

Central to the menu are Central's all-time favourites. These include the slowly braised lamb shanks, chicken schnitzel and the stir-fry of the day. They're also no stranger to a stellar steak; with four on the menu, as well as a prosciutto-wrapped kangaroo steak, customise it as you please. If you're more in the mood for seafood, how about oven-baked barramundi, salmon fillet or a local delicacy with the Moreton Bay bugs?

Other than that, the menu is all Italiano. Boasting a range of sticky risottos, saucy pasta and crispy homemade pizzas, there's a taste of the Med for everyone. And if that wasn't enough, how about a double-choc brownie or toffee pudding to round off the evening? You also find that an ice-cold milkshake does the trick!
