Garden Kitchen & Bar
A striking living green wall in the lobby provides the first hint as to what hides behind the doors at The Star Gold Coast’s Garden Kitchen & Bar. A stark contrast to its predecessor The PA Pub, Garden features an abundance of cascading greenery surrounding an airy, light-filled dining area dotted with modern table settings. An exquisite 13-metre indoor bar commands attention but your gaze is soon drawn to the spacious deck overlooking a beautifully manicured lawn area. From the open kitchen, the chefs busily prepare Garden Kitchen & Bar’s refreshingly uncomplicated fare. Start your day with a smoked salmon bagel, keep things light for lunch with a roasted and raw vegetable quinoa salad, and in the evening, opt for the Chef’s Rotisserie served with smashed potatoes and fresh rocket salad. Complementing the food, Garden Kitchen & Bar serves a selection of handcrafted beers, wine on tap, a variety of signature cocktails and shared pitchers full of fresh flavours and local ingredients.
