Beautiful setting and local art works bathroom sink is a piece of art in its self. Feels like an experience. Staff were very good, very helpful with choices. Food came out pretty fast. Best chilli margarita I’ve ever had. The food was sensational, the bbq prawns and the beef tagine were next level, not to mention the Buratta cheese x lots of gf options our table of 5 were all very happy x

Service was wonderful and staff were so friendly! Menu had a large range of food options, including some vegan options. Mains were amazing, very filling and great value. Starters were also delicious but not so great value. However, it’s expected for such a beautiful restaurant in prime location. Will definitely return to try the rest of the menu.

This was our second visit to Maman - excellent food, wine, ambience and staff.
But why no espresso machine??? We were advised that we could get a coffee across the road, which is a bit like going to Bunnings and being told to go elsewhere for paint.
Even with that small niggle, we will be visiting Maman when next of the Gold Coast.

I have a lot of food intolerances atm including garlic, onion, gluten and dairy which can be very hard and stressful to work around when dining out. Being a Mediterranean restaurant I expected my chances were quite slim of eating here as I’ve been turned away from a lot of restaurants and told they can’t make me anything. After calling up to confirm, the guy on the phone asked the chefs and replied ‘absolutely we can make that work’.
When I arrived they had already marked off on the menu everything I could and couldn’t have. The incredible waitress we had (blonde girl - wish I remembered her name) was so lovely and so helpful. She went above and beyond to help us and knew the menu so well. Even down to helping us pick the drinks.
Afterwards I asked about the new bar next door and she went out of her way to walk us in and set us up with the bartenders who were also amazing.
I was so stoked I finally found a place who could cater to my dietary requirements and made everything completely stress free and such an incredible experience. I look forward to coming back.

Seriously good food!! The waitress was nice but the way she got disappointed when we didn’t order four dishes between the two of us was like she was on commission. I would recommend however because the eye fillet carpaccio was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. The cocktails are pretty impressive as well. I will definitely be going back!

Hi Samantha, This is amazing feedback. We are so excited you enjoyed the cape grim carpaccio, it's a mouthwatering dish and one of our personal favourites too. Thanks for highlighting the waitress's service. We have taken this on board and notified staff to be more considerate of how their mannerisms affect our customers. We look forward to demonstrating our improved service next time we see you! Love Maman xx

A family trip to the coast was super enjoyable due to the top notch food and service at Maman. Staff were attentive without intruding. Very helpful with recommendations from the extensive menu. The bug rolls are excellent and the slow cooked lamb delicious. Would easily return.

Probably the worst atmosphere I have ever encountered. Very clinical feel. Almost porcelain like. Staff were very pretentious and wth only 3 tables being used in the whole place it still took over 15 minutes to get the attention of the staff to order a drink.
Nothing about this place felt warm or inviting. There was a constant hammering sound coming from the kitchen area and when I mentioned it to a staff member our party of 5 were certainly made to feel unwelcome. Would never recommend this experience to anyone.

We absolutely loved the food here but the service was not very attentive. We were seated and offered water but it took a long time to come, same with someone to take our drink/food order and no one explained the menu or anything like that. Food arrived in good time though. No one came to refill water. We were offered a dessert menu and clean plates between entree and mains which was good. Overall would come again particularly for the food!

Great food and service in a relaxed environment. I had read other reviews suggesting the meals were small. We were a group of 6 and our waitress helped us to select a combination of dishes that were both delicious and suited our appetite. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable dining experience.
