Potager Team provide the most welcoming space for all who appreciate fabulous food, great produce, wonderful well thought out menus & beverage lists - however the service offering is also a significant point of difference. It's as if returning to an old friend's home to enjoy amazing & unassuming hospitality. Special property set in a beautiful locale - with a view from the hills to the sea. Optimising local product & showcasing a local hideaway. An afternoon or evening on the deck is a wonderful way to spend time enjoying the most amazing hospitality experience. Find a moment to treat yourself & bring your favourites. Sample, sip & stay a while. You will be impressed!

Delightful; amazing service, delicious "comfort" food, country views, kitchen garden (with chooks) and table 10 just perfect, we could talk with ease. Only so sorry we didn't leave space for the desserts, which sounded very special.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. A little disappointed with the lack of seasoning in the fish stew and octopus entree a little bland. The bone marrow was stunning and the goat curry delicious. The service was faultless. Thanks for the lovely afternoon.

Potagers is our favourite local restaurant which has consistently won awards since it opened. Ingredients are locally sourced or grown in their beautiful garden. The views out to the ocean are lovely. Food is first class, as is the service. The staff are always friendly and it is lovely to be greeted by name on our arrival. Well worth the drive.

Situated in a beautiful area, a very serene and picturesque part of the Gold Coast hinterland.
The food was wonderful, the service excellent and the owner and staff very friendly and obliging. We celebrated a wedding anniversary with a lunch which I think is the best time of day to visit.

Potager continues to be a great place to invite interstate and overseas visitors to enjoy locally produced food cooked in imaginative ways. The winter menu offers great 'comfort meals' of slow-braised and roasted meats and vegetables created with flair. Service is outstanding and the recommendation to try the local white wine was worth it! The location with disabled access is so good and dining on the deck or indoor near the pot belly stove is a treat.

The perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast strip! I love that you're passing signs for moo poo and you're only a few mins from Coolangatta airport. Such a stunning setting and the service is mind blowing. And the food? D-i-v-i-n-e!! Everything on the menu is amazing.

We have been to Potager a number of times so this in itself speaks for the experience.
The original old home has been tastefully converted into the restaurant and its location only makes it better with the fantastic views over hinterland to the ocean.
Food, wine and beer selections, which include organic produce from the house garden, are sensibly inclusive without being overwhelming.
Our recent visit won't be our last.
