  • Creativitea
    Cafes    Broadbeach, QLD

    Enjoyed an afternoon cuppa of the signature Yorkshire Tea here and a creme brulee as this is my favourite dessert. The shop itself is lovely and the tea and giftware on offer really pretty for all tea lovers. The tea service sets in the cafe were lovely, but I prefer my brulee with a thicker toffee top and a firmer custard. A great place to take girlfriends or mum out for afternoon tea. They also offer high tea for all ages, and young ladies 5-12 for formal functions. A very cute idea!

  • Marigold Restaurant
    Restaurants    Broadbeach, QLD

    Dropped in for lunch and ordered garlic nann to start, coconut rice with the Goat curry, lamb koftas, butter chicken and steamed rice.
    The half price lunches were tempting, making it a reasonably priced feed too.
    Our steamed rice didn't show up with the first round of meals and had to be requested again. Unfortunately when it came, included hairs which is pretty unappetising. (This was replaced, free of charge, as you'd expect.)
    We were also offered water, but had to request that be served a second time.
    There was only a few other patrons in the restaurant, so couldn't put the service down to being flat out.
    Award winning restaurant, with tasty main meals, but a disappointing visit for us.

  • Summergrove Estate
    Wedding Planning    Carool, NSW

    Attended a wedding here and the entire estate was closed to make it an exclusive event. The weather was lovely for the small intimate service with fabulous views of the valley towards the ocean.
    The menu was fantastic with a choice of coconut prawns or pork belly for entree and beef or lamb cutlets for main.
    I did see a coconut brulee on the menu and will have to come back to the restaurant to try that at some stage.
    There's also luxury villas onsite, a function centre, tennis courts, pool and packages available. Will have to be back to try out those!

  • Next Espresso
    Cafes    Robina, Qld

    Have enjoyed a cuppa here a couple of times when wandering through Robina Town Centre. It's a little outside the food court so not as busy and seats often available. My chai latte was only warm, but hubby's was hot. Our small muffin and walnut bread were a nice afternoon snack. Friendly service from the staff.

  • Business Chicks
    Business Services    Sydney, NSW

    These girls are amazing! They run the best events and networking functions for women in business in Australia... and soon the USA also. I am a proud premium member and attend all the events I can. Have made some fabulous connections, met some amazing women and am happy to recommend Business Chicks to anyone looking for some amazing like-minded girls!

  • Buzz Relaxed Clothing
    Clothing Retailers    Robina Town Centre, QLD

    Interesting options here, different to a lot of the regular chains.
    Tried on one dress which looked awesome on the model, but just hung strangely on me unfortunately. Friendly and helpful serving staff.

  • Knight Frank
    Property Management    Bundall, QLD

    Have recently dealt with Tania Moore when leasing space in Eastside, Robina and have found her very professional in her dealings. Trying to find new space just prior to Xmas is never easy, but she was available for our inspection when required and answered all queries promptly, easily liaising with us and the lessor for a successful outcome.

  • Jetstar
    Airlines    Sydney, NSW

    Always a mixed bag when flying Jetstar.
    Often know as LateStar for a very good reason.
    Staff on board are friendly, but it isn't the most comfortable airline, so I always pay extra for legroom. They're much more likely to weigh hand luggage too.
    Had one booking made and paid for that they swore I never had and had to fight for months to get a refund, or the higher amount from the second booking as they only wanted to refund the lower amount.
    Sometimes, travel just shouldn't be this hard.

  • 7 Eleven
    Petrol & Service Stations    Palm Beach, QLD

    Service always friendly at this local service station with added bonus of being attached to a McDonald's. All the usual pick up items available for when you've forgotten the milk or just really need a Cherry Ripe.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Palm Beach, QLD

    A favourite of my kids when attending school in the area and convenient drive through behind a service station. Limited parking but good quick service and clean amenities available here.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Robina, QLD

    Convenient Maccas for Robina locals and recently the place my Learner Driver daughter navigated her first Drive Through - with flying colours. Order delivered exactly as requested. Plenty of parking and easy access on the corner from two street fronts.
    Can't say I'm a huge fast food fan, but the restaurant is clean, and meal was quick and easy.

  • Pod Legal
    Legal Services    Robina, QLD

    Big Shoutout to the team at Pod Legal and huge Thanks for arranging my Commercial Sale and Employee Agreements at an incredibly busy time of year.
    Love the fixed fee billing option! Recommend!

  • Commonwealth Bank
    Banks    Robina, QLD

    I hadn't been into a branch in years, and was pleasantly surprised by the new layout and offerings of internet banking, various specialised teller desks and assistance available. No forms anymore either! Who knew? Lovely staff - friendly and helpful service.

  • ANZ
    Banks    Robina, QLD

    Christine, a Personal Banker in branch was incredibly helpful when assisting with finalising all our lending. She was able to verify our ID and assist well with explaining all the docs. Great service, and a fresh new store in Robina TC.

  • City Farmers
    Pet Shops    Burleigh Waters, QLD

    Huge pet store where we headed recently for a collar for our staffy.
    My daughter loved browsing the aisles with everything from calendars to fish, pet toys and food to the usual accessories available.
    Staff very attentive and helpful when trying to find something particular.
    Lots of parking. Tucked just behind Treetops Plaza Shopping Centre.

  • Treetops Super Store
    General Retailers    Burleigh Waters, QLD

    Seriously cluttered 'junk shop' with only one register able to be gotten to. Tuns of cheap stuff if you like a bargain, but a bit hard to navigate all the boxes and items everywhere.

  • Georges Steak & Seafood Restaurant
    Restaurants    Broadbeach, QLD

    Fantastic seafood platters for a corporate function attended recently, and fantastic, friendly and attentive waitstaff. A great lunch!!

  • Fiction Bar & Restaurant
    Restaurants    Cleveland, QLD

    Enjoyed a few drinks here with work colleagues. Few issues with sorting correct change but drinks were cold, company good and the views lovely.

  • Pollon Flowers
    Florists    Melbourne, VIC

    The flowers at Pollon are stunning. The shop displays are gorgeous and orchids out the front amazing. Definitely worth using if you're a Melbourne local.

  • Lindt Cafe
    Cafes    Melbourne, VIC

    My sister bought a voucher for two for a cuppa and sharing plate.
    Ordered a mocha but it was all way too sweet and too much for me.
    Chocoholics dream tho!
