Food was excellent and location ideal. Once COVID is over we’ll definitely return because of the restrictions around bar service and table seating times.
The bar is well stocked but not in use for pre dinner drinks due to COVID and govt rules

Unfortunately paid for wagyu steak, $88 wirh a side of potatoes. Wagyu was stringy and chewy and not cooked medium as requested. Potatoes were also undercooked and under seasoned. Beautiful restaurant and beautiful cocktails, the meals were just not what we expected for the price we paid.

Went here during the dining restrictions of COVID-19. Had a later booking which we thought would be good as we wouldn't likely be pushed out the door after our 1.5 hour time allotment.

The Good
The food was very good. Had the Kangaroo Loin and the Beef cheek. Both were well prepared, seasoned etc, and very tasty.
The drinks list is quite extensive, so lots of good food/wine pairing to be made. My dining companion liked the cocktail list.
The side of vegetables was just that, with no real flair to enhance the flavour or presentation. This is a restaurant focussed on its meat.
The Bad
The table wasn't ready on arrival for our 8:30pm seating, so had to wait in the bar area for about 10-15 minutes. But we weren't offered menus to peruse, or the opportunity to get a drink.
The first round of drinks took ages to get there.
They seemed to be struggling with the number of patrons to staff ratio. Which is a little odd, given the COVID restrictions, and the fact you pretty much know what your covers are going to be in advance given set dining times?
The ambience of the place is pretty basic. Seems more like a large cafe than a restaurant, but the pricing doesn't reflect that. Perhaps during the day overlooking the beach, it would be nice, but night time there's not much to it.
Any thought of lingering for another drink after our meal was dashed when they called last drinks as we were finishing our mains.

Overall I'd recommend it for the meat oriented food, and good drinks list.

Been to the one in Sydney a number of times and wanted to try one near our home in Brisbane - drove an hour and was disappointed - food was cold and meat didn’t fall off the bone as was expecting. Not sure I would come back to the one in Gold Coast.

Too expensive for what it is. The oysters were amazing but the signature steak and the ribs we had were average at best, yet cost top dollar.

Great night with good service
Garlic mushrooms were just swimming in garlic and liquid that made them a little over the top.
Wagyu burger was too greasy and too much sauce. Ok for blokes but my wife gave up on it halfway through.
Steak was awesome
Lamb salad awesome
Garlic prawns good
Overall good

Pork ribs were good but the steak(NSW 120days 200g sirloin) was so chewy and rough although it was cooked as medium rare. I am sure I won't go back for a steak. I feel like that steak doesn't deserve 32 dollars at all.

混んでいるという口コミをみて予約しましたが、中国の方がいない時期なのか(3月頭の日曜)18時予約でも1/3ほどしか席が埋まっていませんでした。
19時までの1時間で2/3程度の埋まり具合です。
サービスがとても良かったです。
片言の英語なので女性のスタッフの方がとても親切にゆっくりわかる単語で話してくれました。
どのスタッフの方もテキパキ常に動いていて、とても素敵でした。
もちろん料理も、景色も最高です。
女性2人で、口コミをみて人気そうなTボーンステーキとリブ(豚)を頼んでとってもお腹いっぱいになりました。付け合わせのポテトも美味しかったです。

We have been repeat customers of Hurricane’s Bondi over the years (not recently due to relocating) and were excited to take our boys to enjoy the ribs. The venue was good and the staff excellent but found the food below par in comparison to what we had previously enjoyed on numerous occasions. We ordered two full racks of ribs to share between four and given previous experiences expected this to be over ordering but no. We left hungry, the ribs hardly had any meat and the less than hand full of chips “thrown” on the side was poor, (so we ordered extra). Funnily I said that one thing to a girlfriend whom still visits the Bondi location that we left hungry and she did the double take look at me of shock.

At $58 a plate - no not worth it but lucky for businesses in this location the tourists come and go and so always a steady stream to fill seats.
I would not personally be recommending this to any of my friends or family.

Staff was good, food was terrific, and biggest surprise was reading the negative reviews on Trip Advisor about the steak. The fellow on the table next to us looked like he was enjoying his.

My pork ribs came literally cold , it looked as if it was prepared prior and then reheated and when I advised the waiter , she heated it along with my sweet potato chips and they came burnt . Been coming each year to Hurricane from Sydney and never been that disappointed.

Good restaurant, but very busy so would recommend booking in advance. Meat dishes were really well done, particularly the ribs. We tried beef, lamb and pork, which were all nicely cooked with great basting. The steaks were also nice and portion sizes were generous.

Hurricane grill surfers paradise - The food was fantastic. However we had made a booking a few nights beforehand and when we arrived we were given a buzzer and were told to wait for a table even though we had a reservation. I was not happy with the service either the waitress spoke down to me like a child and not once but three times got my orders wrong. She also spoke with me too familiar like, I am not there to joke or to make friends I was there to celebrate a anniversary but instead she would butt into my conversations which I think is quite rude and unprofessional. Overall I am not happy and will not dine there again and would not recommend to anyone.
