What holiday would be complete without the ultimate dining experience? Just near us here at Infinity Gold Coast is Black Coffee Lyrics, the #1 restaurant in Surfers Paradise and an attraction in itself. Whether you’re after coffee, lunch, dinner, drink or cocktails, this is the place to be in Surfers Paradise. Voted number one on Urbanspoon.com.au, it serves the best salads, salmon pastrami, charred marinated eggplant, pizzas, and many more. As it is the best restaurant in town, you can expect quite a long queue particularly during breakfast and dinner. But dont worry, its worth the wait. Aside from serving great food and the best coffee on the coast, the place is also great for meeting new friends, including locals and other travellers.

Although there are several establishments offering this type of service, I personally recommend Q1 Spa at Q1 Spa & Resort, which offers distinct range of rejuvenation, relaxation, and beauty therapies drawn from diverse range of techniques. This beautiful and tranquil spa offers range of treatments and guarantees great experience. It is indeed a haven of relaxation that is perfect for lone travellers, couples, group of friends, and even travelling families.
