The staff are so friendly making sure you are looked after. I had the eye fillet steak it was delicious and my hubby had the salmon which was also delicious. Would come back again

My son and I came here for a bit of "bonding time". The service was lovely from the start and very prompt!! I couldnt fault the staff at all.
My son ordered the surf & turf and he said they were the best prawns and steak he'd ever had. I had the eye fillet and it was cooked to perfection and delicious.
The place was easy to find and nice and central.
The only downside (and it wasn't even the restaurants fault) were people whizzing past on the 3 wheeled scooters and nearly knocking people over, maybe management could have a word to the vendor, if they already haven't?
We will definitely be back :)

We had excellent experience with Central Lounge Bar and Dining! Pork belly and calamari as entree were outstanding. Surf & Turf steak for mains and following dessert of creme brûlée - life changing! On top of that service was soo attentive! Good job guys! We were sceptical after reading some reviews beforehand but it was our best dining experience in Gold Coast!
Thank you for making our last evening in Gold Coast unforgettable!

Wow. I just loved my meal. I had the Kangaroo and it was the best I have ever had. And I’ve tried a lot. Staff were friendly and attentive. We had 3 courses and they all came out well timed. Thank you for letting us dine with you. Will be back

Enjoyed our experience overall. Staff were welcoming, though our wait person didn't know of first table and thus we had to have the bill at the end adjusted. Food was great. Oysters kilpatrick for starters and then kangaroo steak and pork belly. All delicious and well timed to enjoy them. Restaurant easy to find, not far from Cavil Ave. Even tried the watermelon martini which was so nice I had another.

Food was good. Staff were initially impolite and unhelpful. First Table customers are discriminated against and placed at the least desirable tables. Request to move to one of the numerous free and unreserved tables was denied. We moved ourselves to a free and unreserved table and were told first table discount would not apply. The manager then intervened and resolved the issue quietly and efficiently. Shame about the discrimination.

Hey I had a nice night but the food was dry and my partner felt sick after it also not a place I would go back to my lamb shank was great but we did not order desserts so that says it was very average in many ways

- dined at Central Lounge Bar and Dining on

The staff were quick to approach us. Our meals were okay except I had a bit of blood around the bone of my chicken and seeping out onto my plate. When I bought it to their attention I was told it was a natural thing and it was coming out of the vein but that the chicken had been cooked at the right temperature. I was worried I would get sick. They did offer me some chips as compensation. Overall the staff were friendly and helpful.

Well established restaurant- good range of choices. Service was good and portion sizes were good. We had pizza, steak, lasagna and chicken mushroom dishes plus kids meals - all were very good. The kids also had milkshakes and they looked great.

On arrival at the restaurant, we were immediately escorted to a great table at the front that is apparently always for the first table bookings. We ordered: beef burger, salmon salad, pasta marinara and beer battered chips. We received: as stated, but beer battered fish instead of chips, but a quick thinking waiter offered us the plate plus extra chips despite the mix up. Great service. We were also given colour ins for the kids, and some spray and wipe when the baby vomited. Very happy :)

Nice enough place to dine, lovely staff and great service! The prawns were way over salted, and steak a little overdone, but the bug with mango butter and spaghetti Napoli were really yummy! Also enjoyed a nice glass of Moscato :)

We enjoyed our evening and the food was really good. The service very friendly and prompt. Great night out in a good location close to everything in Surfers.

From the minute we arrived, hostesses were attentive & timely. Orders were taken quickly and food delivered to our tables just as quickly. Kangaroo was very tender & pizza was delicious

Had a lovley meal and the Pork Belly was amazine. If I could fault anything was only as we had young kids and it was a bar it was rather noisy and people gathering outside to smoke.

I’m not much of a reviewer but Central was terrible. My partner and I went out for dinner and when we got there they asked us where we would like to sit so we chose a seat outside near the back, then when they realised we were first table customers, told us we couldn’t sit there and had to sit by the footpath. People were really rude to us when trying to order our food and even ended up getting our order wrong. We ordered a bottle of wine too so it wasn’t like we weren’t buying drinks and they kept checking if it was empty or not yet as if to say hurry up. Then to top it all off the seats they moved us from never got filled the whole time because the restaurant next door was far more busy and we wished we’d gone there and paid full price. Will never go back.

We dined at Central Lounge before heading over to Draculas for the show. Staff very very friendly and helpful, our meals were cooked perfectly and we enjoyed sitting outside watching the night progress in Orchid Ave. Satisfied customers AAA+++

Pork belly was the best I've had and ribs were also good. Hubby had oysters and bugs which he enjoyed. Service was great, just wear warm ish clothes if the evening is cool as dining is outdoors.

Honestly it was disappointing. We got the calamari & duck spring rolls as an entree.. can’t fault those 2 things they were amazing and the best thing about the whole dinner. I got the surf n turf as a main.. I asked for my steak medium rare it was pretty much well done no pinkness too it.. it was also really burnt on the outside so all I got was a burnt taste, my mash was slightly under cooked and the prawns lacked flavour. They offered me to cook another one but the meal had already taken a long time to get out as it was. My partner ordered the ribs.. the only thing he liked was the chips that came with it.. he got a rack of 3 ribs that had next to no meat on the bones. I won’t be back & definitely won’t be recommending.

Great service, food took longer than expected. They had colouring in for the kids. Menu was large and had great variety. Drink prices were good. Food was a cross between pub food and a nice restaurant. Casual enough for kids but still lovely.

Great service food was nice as well. Great cocktails, happily recommend for others

We were disappointed that we were overcharged. We only had 4 glasses of wine and were charged for 6. My partner had to get up to order some more for us as the waiter had not noticed our empty glassses. Somehow they managed to charge us for 2 extra. The meal wasn't discounted by 50%. We did enjoy our meals but very disappointed with the discussion of the bill at the end. We just paid the extra and left.
