Many Gold Coast locals would be affectionately familiar with Broadbeach haunt Alto Cucina & Bar, the daring younger sibling of Mario’s Italian. Well, the popular restaurant and watering hole has reopened as Beachside Pavilion. Fresh seafood is a big hero on the menu here – you’ll find small and simple plates like grilled octopus with olive oil, lemon juice and dill mayonnaise, as well as colourful poke bowls. If you like it really fresh, then you can choose from the raw menu of kingfish ceviche, tuna and ocean trout tartare, and a selection of sashimi with ponzu. If sea-based eats aren’t your thing, you’ll find a solid selection of top-end steaks, prepared in a charcoal oven, and a pretty darn good angus beef burger.
