Really excellent food. Service spotty, but pleasant. The inside dining area is quite lovely; the patio feels quite makeshift and not up to the quality of the food.

" It's always a treat dining at Allure... food has always been delicious and beautifully presented, and the service is just as excellent! Other people might say, the exterior is not that alluring, but really once you're inside, the magic begins and that's all that matters. Keep it up, Allure!"

My Partner and I dined here last week for a child free date night.
The food was absolutely amazing and the service was also very good.
The sorbet between entree and main the best I have ever had!
We are already planning our next visit

I have been to Allure a few times, always been amazing food! I recently went with a friend who is vegan, which at most resturants that don't have vegan menu can be very difficult and often have no vegan options at all. On this occasion the service was impeccable, the waiter asked chef and he made an amazing meal for my friend and when it was time for dessert, chef had already made plans for a vegan dessert, again amazing!
It was fantastic food, but the service stole the night, thank you to staff at Allure.

A big disappointment.

The service was unacceptably slow and unattentative. The fact that we had waited 1 hour for the oyster is not acceptable in any ways and the main was served 2 hours after we seated. We had to serve water ourselves. We had to ask for beverage menu. We had to wait 15 min every time when we wanted to make an order.

The food was really disappointing. The plates(except the pork belly) had no presentation and were either too salty or without salt.

The ambiance was terriable. There was no music in the restaurant (I think they just forgot about it because it was put back on again at 10:30 -which was 3 hours after we seated). The tables are so close to each other that you can hear everyone around you. When any of the tables were leaving, they were literally walking next to us and they had to apologised for crushing into the edge of our table.

For more than $300 we spent for two of us, we expected much more than this. We had booked this restaurant for a special occasion and felt like it was ruined and really disappointed. Would for sure not come back or recommend to others.

My wife and I chose Allure for our one 'special night out' while we were on holiday and it didn't disappoint. Very nice ambience inside backed up by excellent service. Oysters for entree were absolutely superb followed by delicious Salmon and Moreton Bay bugs for main. We both finished with a souffle for dessert and walked away very impressed. We will be back when we next return.

Excellent! I have been wanting to try Allure for a long time knowing that it was highly rated. With this expectation and the bar set so high the danger was that there was not much room for upside and a potential for disappointment. But they delivered everything that I was hoping for and more. The food was exceptional with presentation to match and service was efficient and faultless. We had the duck and eye fillet both of which superb. The duck was amazing and generous in serving and the steak perfectly medium rare and the accompaniments were ideal. The wine list was good and offered the option of individual servings as well as bottles. The service was as brilliant, and more than matched that received in five star hotels in as much as we were made to feel like honored guests. As a resident of the Gold Coast for 36 years I don't recall experiencing a better meal here during that time. I highly recommend Allure as a remarkable dining experience.

My wife and I attended Allure on Currumbin to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we were absolutely blown away by the experience here! From the moment we arrived we were treated with first class service by the staff, the food and drinks were amazing and the staff explained every dish we ordered to us perfectly. My wife commented on the way home that it was the best dining experience she has ever had, and I have to agree! If I could give more than 5 stars I would, and we will definitely return! Thank you Allure for a memorable night!

The food was exquisite, the chef is outstanding. Portion size enabled us to enjoy the flavours of each course which was a lovely change. The service was very personable, with extremely attentive staff.

However, the price was outrageous which meant we will not be able to return, which is disappointing because it was a wonderful night. Everything was perfect.

Went here for our 2nd anniversary dinner and loved it food was amazing with really nice wine pairings, service was first class high end, waiter was exceptional at his job and knew every dish he brought out and the wine that came with it. Is a little expensive but with food so good, service top shelf for a special occasion is worth it. Highly recommend if you want to impress your date.

We had a delicious and enjoyable dinner at Allure on a Monday night splashing out on the Degustation Menu. It was well worth the expense. The wait staff were efficient and friendly but not intrusive and the food was second to none. We were surprised how busy it was for a Monday night. We are very much looking forward to visiting Allure again.

I was impressed with the food here. The plates were beautifully presented and the flavours were well-balanced. I had the salmon for main and the crepe suzette for desert, which were both excellent. I was not as keen on the bisque entree, but it was the first time I had bisque, and I wanted to give it a try - it may be more a case of bisque not being for me, rather than the cooking of it, given how much I enjoyed the other courses. Service was generally attentive, though it did take some time to get their attention when requesting the bill.

This was our second visit to Allure, and on both occasions we were warmly welcomed as soon as we came through the door. The ambience is upmarket yet comfortable, and the wait staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is slightly more expensive than you might expect for a suburban restaurant, however the meals are prepared with fresh ingredients and beautifully presented with a French flair. We both enjoyed the crab bisque for our entrée, and I chose the duck à l'orange for my main course and it was the best I have had outside of France. The desserts were predictably delicious, and the wine list has a good selection of French and Australian wines. Overall Allure is a great choice for a special occasion, and we will definitely be back.

An amazing experience for a first date! Our wait staff was attentive and knowledgable but was experienced enough to leave us during our conversations and arrive just after we finished our meal.
The food was fantastic, tasty and well presented as was the dessert. Drink menu was impressive and offered a wine for every taste.
The whole experience made our date an amazing Occasion and I will be returning again. You cannot miss this experience especially if you want to take that special someone to place he/she won't forget. Simply Magical! A 5 star Occasion deserves a 5 star venue, service and cuisine.

Amazing French Food. We wen there for Mothers Day and had the perfect long lunch afternoon. The food was amazing and pure decadence , as only the French know how. Would thoroughly recommend.
For such a special occasion, we felt spoilt.
The only negative, was the food did take a little long between entre and main... but this purely due to being a special occasion (I am sure). However, this will not stop us from going back and recommending to friends.

My Mothers' Day treat from my daughter ...
Really enjoyable and the restaurant was much bigger inside and very airy and pleasant. From outside it looks quite small however, we were really surprised. Beautifully set out with white tablecloths and nice cutlery etc. Staff were superb, prices in line with standard of food which was superbly presented. If I had any critique then it is minor - my main dish was the Duck L'Orange. Dessert was to die for ... Crepes. Yum.
Overall would certainly come again and be proud to take any friend/visitor.
Thank you.
