Leading the exciting transformation of The Strand is the centre’s beachfront dining and Landini designed 300-seat Restaurant Court. The revitalised centre is revamping Coolangatta’s dining scene, with a high calibre of operators coming on board, inspired by the year-round local capacity and strong tourism market at The Strand.
Gelato Messina, the cult sensation from Sydney, opened their first Queensland store here at The Strand. In prime position opposite the beach, they’re serving up their ‘40 signature flavour cabinet’ plus the infamous ‘specials board’, which includes 5 new creative flavour combinations each week.
Bin 72 is the third Gold Coast restaurant for chef and owner Daniel Ridgeway, offering locals a place where they can relax and enjoy a drink and a delicious range of tapas options, all with a million dollar view.
Griffith Street Larder quickly established a huge following in Coolangatta, with locals loving their quality coffee, fresh and delicious salads and sandwiches, plus decadent desserts such as “syringe” donuts and cronuts.
Continuing with the dessert theme, Coolangatta locals are certainly spoilt for choice. There’s Passiontree Velvet serving up an indulgent range of cakes, chocolates and extravagent high tea. Max Brenner are serving up the chocolate smorgasbord they’re renowned for.
The Strand is fast becoming a must-visit destination for foodies, transforming Coolangatta into a beachside dining, shopping and entertainment destination like no other on the Gold Coast.
