Ioesco

Ioesco translates as ‘I am going out’, a fittingly momentous title for one of Gold Coast’s premier Italian restaurants, Ioesco - Cafe Cucina Bar. The likes of Gordon Ramsay have graced Ioesco’s stylish dining room, where sparkling chandeliers, a marble bar and water views are tempered by a relaxed vibe and alfresco Seating in the tranquil Sanctuary Cove surrounds. Passionate and knowledgeable staff work the floor delivering contemporary interpretations of classic Napoli cuisine that, happily, don’t compromise on size or quality. Moreish starters such as duck breast with Marsala mushroom cream sauce offer perfect preludes to mains like Barossa chicken breast with king prawns, avocado and garlic brandy cream sauce as well as spinach and buffalo ricotta ravioli with Napoli cream sauce.

Stunning decor with great ambiance. Lovely tables with luxurious leather seats. As a vegetarian I enjoyed a divine wild mushroom rocket salad starter which was beautiful with goats feta and a truffle balsamic. For main I was blown away by tortellini Gorgonzola with walnut rocket cream sauce. Very rich in flavour which I loved! My husband said the limone veal was amazing and our friends thoroughly enjoyed their meals too. Staff and hosts were very attentive, polite and eager to please. It is really a very special place for dinner. It may be our new favourite.

We have just moved to the area and having a child free night wanted to pop out for a bite to eat that was not a tavern and we were very pleasantly surprised. Tucked away off the main road is this delightful Italian restaurant.
The menu has something for everyone. It is not just a pizza place.
Everyone of the staff were wonderful and friendly and the food was delicious!! I had the chicken risotto and Oh My Word!! It was that good I almost popped trying to eat it all!!
Hubby had the homemade tiramisu that almost put me in a food coma!! Intervention was called for and our delightful waitress kindly interviened .
We will certainly be going back there and taking friends.
Don't delay go soon!!!

Reviewed By Robert D - Sydney, Australia

Enjoyed a get together with old friends who suggested this place. We weren’t disappointed, the setting alongside a marina with multi million dollar boats parked gave us something to dream about whilst enjoying dinner.
The Waitstaff were friendly but not overbearing, they added to the overall experience. The food was excellent both in presentation and taste, I had a rack of lamb that was sensational, well cooked and very tasty. My wife had a squid ink linguini that she said was the best she had ever tasted.
The desserts were also great especially the Afffogato, the sundae was pretty good also.
A very pleasant night was had by all, we will return

Reviewed By xxPeteandLinda - Kirrawee, Australia

We last had Chinese at Sanctuary Cove & was very expensive:
Being closed Tuesday we tried this Chinese down the road at Hope Island.
Small Restaurant but impressed with the Food. Nice & the Service was good.
1/2 the Price of Sanctuary Cove for a Nice Dinner; we were all happy.
Will be coming back.

The Fireplace

Reviewed By 188petere - Brisbane, Australia

Went to my first high tea Gold Coast style & what a suprise at the InterContinental Hotel. A rainy day greeted us but everything else was perfect.
Easy check in & shown to the table where staff explained what we had ahead of us. A pleasant glass of champagne to start, then 3 finger sandwiches (these were refilled if you wanted more), a small pea with pea mash, then a champagne refill, a cleansing sorbet, before a 3 layered desert arrived. This consisted of 2 scones each (with jam & cream), a signature eclair, then a tray of petit fours each. This was finished with a tea of coffee.
The room is on ground floor overlooking waterfeatures & lovely Gardens down to the pool. The cafe was pretty quiet today so not a lot of atmosphere. The preparation area is open with a couple of chefs working, heated by a lovely open fired oven.
Great staff, great food, pleasant drinks and a lovely experience.

Cafe Nineteen

Reviewed By Redback_Venom - Melbourne, Australia

While this case may not have the water views of some of the other establishments in the marina, it offers arguably one of the better breakfast offerings and coffee of them all
Relaxed with inside and outside under cover dining options, it offers something for everyone. During a breakfast meeting, we had fruit toast and smashed avocado for breakfast with coffees. All were excellent and could not fault. Will be back on our next visit.
