Located on beneath the luxury Avani hotel, the 200-seat Gold Coast incarnation of popular Noosa dining spot Miss Moneypenny’s is a true stunner. You can drop in for a snack, grab a pizza, settle in for a lazy lunch or experience a multi-course lunch or dinner feast. As for bar bites, think suckling-pig spring rolls with a caramelised-apple and onion emulsion, a three-cheese toastie with jamon serrano and dijon, and savoury doughnuts filled with smoked creme fraiche and a drop of caviar. You’ll also find pizzas with toppings like wagyu Italian meatballs with green chilli and smoked mozzarella, handmade gnocchi with truffle foam and potato chips, and entrees like beef tartare with torched-gochujang dressing and garlic custard. If you’re sharing, there’s whole barbecue chickens served with fermented harissa and sumac yoghurt, a whole fried market fish with hot-and-sour dressing, and a slow-cooked lamb shoulder with spicy chermoula, burnt lemon and chilli oil. Not into sharing? Think mains like charred pork loin with cultured black-garlic cream, and Coral Coast barramundi with warrigal greens. The impressive bar lines the entire length of the venue, and is equipped with a solid cocktail compendium (including a fun sub-section of ’80s cruise ship drinks’), a wide selection of spirits, local and international wines, plus a raft of tap and bottled beers.
