Food was spectacular, super well presented and delicious.

Wait staff were knowledgeable and friendly, at times a little too attentive but over all, a minor thing in what was a fantastic night out for my partner and I.

We will definitely be back!!

Sadly after not dining at GZ for a while we were somewhat disappointed. The fact that I had to wave a waitress down to take our first drink order & then I had to again twice more throughout our time was not a nice experience.
Our meals were nice but not great.
Unfortunately we won't be rushing back..

Fantastic food. Excellent service. Only issue was we were kept waiting in the cold for a few minutes before being taken to our table. Best food we’ve has since moving to Sunshine Coast earlier this year

Celebrating my Mums 84th birthday, we were running a little late and the kitchen was near closed. We were welcomed by Paul, who was an exceptional host and provided outstanding service. Food was delicious, and made for a wonderful celebration!

Have previously loved this restaurant. Very disappointed on this visit -I very rarely complain but I had to send my meal back as it was cold. The replacement was only luke warm too. Our guests meat was tough and quite bland. Such a shame as this is such a beautiful spot with great service but staff sweeping the floors around us whilst we were still eating was very off putting. Hopefully just a bad day!

Lunch with Nana,

Arriving early was key, we had the place to ourselves for an hour. An incredibly personal experience made even more pleasant by our server.

The Service and food presentation was outstanding. We booked in for a pay for 1 main and get the other free only if you arrived after 5.00 pm but left before 6.30 pm.

We arrived at 5.00 pm and left at 5.50 pm although never received any discount and therefore was a bit put out by the advertisement of pay for 1 and receive 1 free.

The food and service was 10/10 which haven't put us off from going there again, just next time we will book a little later if we are to pay full price to enjoy the waterfront and sunset.

The food, as usual, was excellent. The restaurant was busy and we waited quite a while to have our orders taken and service was a bit slow compared to other visits.
We were all a bit disappointed in the 15% public holiday surcharge, not in principle but because we were unaware of the local 'show holiday' as we come from another area - no real fault of theirs.
My only serious criticism is the 1970's large pepper grinder ritual which invokes bad memories of the 1970's and 1980's and suggests that management cannot trust their patrons with the peppercorns!

One of our friends had a birthday . One of the girls went over and beyond as she listened as one of the other diners had a birthday the week before. So when dessert came out she had two birthday plates!

This was our third visit and it was very busy but All Staff still were efficient, helpful and happy. We felt the tables were too close together in some areas for social distancing to be adequately adhered to, the people to one side of our table were lucky to be 400mm away !!! Also, we realise all prices everywhere are quite high nowadays but we do feel that several menu items are very expensive. We would still return as the food is fresh, tasty, well thought out, presented well and a pleasure to eat. Also the ambience is very pleasant. Thank you to ALL the staff.
