“Excellent Food”

  •  TripAdvisor  Reviewed 6 July 2013 NEW

We had dinner our first night at Surfers Paradise. The pasta was excellent and the pizza was very nice as well. Friendly and not over bearing service. The dining is both outside and inside the restaurant. Very nice location.

We went there for lunch & loved it! Amazing service, food & so central.

We were staying right near there. We are here for another week so will be heading back to have dinner & drinks for sure.

You have to try the steak with seafood on it – it’s amazing. Also chicken parmigiana was a huge hit with my other half.

Big thanks to Costa Dora – great lunch today!!

Highly recommend trying this place if you feel like some Italian and great service!!

“I don’t think you can go past this restaurant for quality, good food, great Italian and seafood and good value for the heart of the Gold Coast. Look out for specials if you are on a budget, otherwise it is pretty much what you would expect to pay for a restaurant in Surfers Paradise.”                                                                                  Grazziella Calzone

“I first came across Costa D’oro a few years ago and have been a regular customer ever since! They are always consistent with the meals and it is always delicious! I recommend the Chicken Costa D’oro, steak Funghi or any of the pastas! It’s all good! The waitresses are all lovely and I don’t think I could fault the place. Great location too! Recommend to Everybody!”                                                                                                                  Brendon 29 Sep. ‘10

“It is quite packed on Fri night. I’ve ordered tomato basil onion Bruschetta and gnocchi Matriciana. The Bruschetta was brilliant and I couldn’t finish the gnocchi even though it was lovely. I think the entree size was more than enough for me. Overall, will definitely back for more.”                                                                                                            Vincenzo Agnello Apr. ‘11

My husband and I attended the Costa Doro Restaurant on Saturday night using a Living Social Voucher that I had purchased. We were exceptionally happy with the service, efficiency and manner of all staff, in particular the very friendly waitress that tended to us, and absolutely delighted with our meals even though the restaurant was extremely busy. Thank you for a very pleasant evening :). Would thoroughly recommend dining at Costa D’oro to anyone.
