How many times has this sentence come out of your mouth – “where should we go for lunch?”. More than you can count? Well, you’re not alone – but we do have a solution. Earlier this year, we put out the call to you guys, as part of the 2017 Gold Coast EAT/drink Awards, to find the best places for lunch on the Gold Coast. You, our dear readers, ate, drank and voted. We’ve already announced the top three, but we thought we’d be nice and open the curtains to reveal which places where voted as the top ten lunch spots in this fine city. Don’t question where to go for lunch – just hit this list.

Comuna Cantina: The combination of healthy tacos, colourful cocktails and good vibes seems to have caught your attention – this South American hang at Pacific Fair opened its doors in spectacular fashion in October last year, and has already captured the hearts of stomachs of locals with its super-tasty feel-good fare.


We went here for a team Christmas lunch and have to say it was great. The staff members were so friendly and helpful with different menu item recommendations. The food came out quite quickly and looked amazing. Everything was so fresh and tasty. Everyone in our big group had a terrific time. I am sure we will be back to test out the cocktail menu soon!

Such a lovely place with amazing staff! Super location to go for dinner and drinks with friends as the atmosphere is always vibrant and happy. The food is great and the drinks amazingly well presented. Definitely a must to visit this place if you are ever in the CBD! FACEBOOK Christina B. Hansen July 9

 "I wish these guys would open in my home town - Sydney" Travelling for work i stopped in for lunch on my own. The staff were great, excellent service, the food was amazing I had the abundance bowl with chicken - i loved it! Best "salad" Ive ever eaten! I'm back at home now and have been craving another one of these every day since, highly recommended! Please open a store in Sydney!!!!!! TRIP ADVISOR melissajanderson

"Great food, cocktails and service!" Loved our night out at Comuna Cantina. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, but not over the top which was good. We ordered a round of cocktails (Candyman = amazing!) and some share platters for the two of us. Huge servings! And having eftpos only made things quick and easy when leaving. Will definitely be back on the next trip to Brisbane!   TRIP ADVISOR 6 Sep 2017 Reviewed by Danielle K

Ordered via UberEats and was pleasantly surprised considering I'm not huge on Mexican. Grilled corn and pulled pork taco were better than expected and loved the Fernanda's Fiesta salad. Would order again! ZOMATO Milla Vanilla
