Modern Australian
Catch Restaurant, located at the Hilton Hotel Surfers Paradise, serves contemporary Australian cuisine with a dash of Asian inspiration in its charming and elegant eatery. For starters, the oysters Kilpatrick with chorizo, Worcestershire sauce and smoky tomato and the skewered fish cakes with chili jam and garlic chives are superb selections. Some of Catch Restaurant's specialty main dishes include the confit salmon with wasabi cream and teriyaki glaze served over brown rice, the vegetarian-friendly warm soba noodle salad with cashews, sprouts and tempura tofu in sweet soy dressing, the Moroccan-spiced lamb rump with a date, almond and orange salad served atop Israeli couscous and the chargrilled Scotch beef fillet slathered in garlic butter, all of which are prepared to perfection and pair perfectly with a glass of wine from the list. For a sweet end to your meal at Catch Restaurant, enjoy the lemon meringue pie ÒheavenÓ with berry compote.

    Amazing food,seafood platter fresh an inventive, not just fried like others, The two witnesses where great but needed some direction an training, they tried but where flustered an could not even keep up with a quiet restaurant, no management in sight until she called for help to sort the bill out, Last visit was when it was salt grill, Amazing service and food then but was packed out an busy, Catch restaurant has great food but nobody Was there, everyone I brought was a local an didn't know it existed, some local deal on the deal diner app or radio adverts are needed, Will definitely return again but not in a hurry with so much choice on the coast,

    Went for their valentines dinner, had a set menu with a complimentary cocktail on arrival. It was $79pp for a 3 course meal. Arrived and were seated and cocktails arrived with a few minutes. Ordered entree, main and dessert all at the same time. Got our entree after 40 minutes of waiting with the restaurant under half full, quite surprising. Partners entree was luke warm however mine was ok. Waiters had left food on the tables of other diners and had not cleared them for at least 30 minutes, keep in mind the restaurant was not busy and this should have been a priority considering the service you would expect. When our mains arrived, it was quite disappointing as the chicken curry meal we had ordered was by no means a curry or even curry sauce. There was a splash of sauce on the dish and it was overall dry and flavourless. We informed the waiter and they were very apologetic and offered other mains for free, we declined. Waited it out for dessert which was ok, but didn’t make up for the rest of the dining experience. Finally went to pay and we were looked after by the staff due to our dining experience, it was clear that almost everyone had complained or was not happy that night and the staff were doing their best to make it up. Unsure what would’ve been if the restaurant had been at max capacity as it was clear they struggled with the small amount of diners that they had. I would not rave about this restaurant by any means, just grateful the wait staff and management were understanding of the situation and event that it was.

    There are no words to describe our disappointed. A table of 11 people, not a 4.5 star restaurant. Had to ask for the children menu. Overpriced and under seasoned food. A seafood plater for $120 that did not even look appetising when it arrived. Scallops were burnt, barramundi was dry, salt n pepper squid was oily, not seasoned, no lemon to even squeeze on the seafood platter. Didn't receive the watermelon salad to accompany it either. Singapore chilli crab - hope your prepared to crack the crab with your hands. Not even cracked to be able to eat, flavourless, it had to be sent back to be cracked by the chef cause they dont even have claw crakers to get into the dish. Flavourless. Pastas bland, the smallest serving of mayo given with chips maybe a table spoon at best. The best part of the evening was the deserts. Excellent cheese platter and creme brulee. I think the chefs need to taste there food before sending out to ensure that it is at least seasoned. The surf clubs and RSL clubs serve a better seafood plater for half the price than we were charged. Certainly will not be retuning or recommending this establish to anyone. H Daniels.

    Christmas Day buffet lunch was wonderful. Beautifully set up, fantastic service from all of the staff. The staff were especially accommodating with our toddlers needs and coeliac guests by providing additional fingerfood. The buffet selection was plentiful, and the drinks generous. Our family had a wonderful time. We will be going next year! The Hilton offers a very personalised service.

    When you pay $79 dollars for tea, you expect more then mass produced food. The concept was not inviting to sit and enjoy, and celebrate mothers, we all got a feel of hurry up eat and get out so we can get the next seating in, which is exactly what the people did. Honestly there is nothing about this experience I would recommend. I personally have absolutely no problem paying $79 per person, but when you pay that for high tea, you want value, and the only thing that even remotely equated to value was the macarons.

    Entree - salt and pepper calamari was very tender and natural oysters were fresh. Main course - rump was cooked as requested (medium rare) and flavoursome and pasta was light and tasty. Desert - special birthday treat with candle was a nice touch. Service was friendly and prompt.

    I was unbelievabley impressed. The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and overall great to chat with. It was my partner's birthday and they fulfilled my request of a special night. They went above and beyond to make the night special. The food was to die for. We had the gnocchi for entree and then steak and chicken for mains with a pear salad and chips. They then brought out this wonderful chocolate dessert as a surprise. I will be recommending this place to all my family and friends.

    The food was delicious and well presented. But given there was a maximum of 4 tables with customers, the 30 minutes to bring drinks, the 30 minutes to bring dessert menu and drink menu (with only 1 other table at the time) was unacceptable. It was almost like quietness breeds laziness/forgetfulness. Also annoying to have happy hour advertising on tables that is not for the restaurant just the bar but not have said advertising specify this. Also when ordering request the happy hour wine and when paying the bill have to pay full price as not able to have happy hour pricing in restaurant.

    Staff were exceptional. We came here two nights in a row for dinner, we were greeted very politelyand seated down. I order scotch filet stake it didn't come with a sauce so the chef wipped out a very tatsy mushroom sauce at no extra cost which was extremely generous. Lovely staff and delicious food! It will be a hot spot for us next time we visit the gold coast

    The drink at the candle lit bar was lovely and falsely led us to expect great things to come. Unfortunately,staff really need training for a 5 star venue. Passing a glass of wine across the front of the other diner, not knowing catch of the day,forgetting the red wine and water ordered.etc etc Entrees were very dissappointing We both had lamb which had good flavours but my partners had not been seared so a huge lump of white fat resulted..Ambience would improve with tablecloths in evening.
