Fresh Seafood Lunch

Another exceptional lunch at The Potager in Carool our favourite restaurant. Greeted by Pete,,Kylie an Zane. Started with A huge vegetarian platter for two. Followed by a Goldban Schnapper fisn with Clams and Shevelled butter sauce and spinach vegetables. And a Red Emporer fish and Vermicelli Noodles and Coconut Lime and Turimic Dressing. Accompied by a bottle of Thorn Clark Riesling a delightful lunch with my wife. Sitting outside on the deck with farmland and ocean views. Fantastic lunch.

Superb!

The food is incredible - the flavours are this amazing combination, the presentation is beautiful, the produce is fresh and local. All floor staff are fantastic - efficient, helpful and personal. The gardens make an Entrance! The view is mesmerising.... The only issue with Potager is making a choice on what to have on each visit and...not overeating....you don't want to miss dessert!

This restaurant is really worth a visit. I'll bet if you go once you will become a regular if you live locally. Although we are not, I'd seriously consider revisiting Carool just for the food Peter and Gareth are serving at Potagers. Fresh, magic flavours, cooked to perfection, presented creatively make it a very special experience. The service provided by Peter and his crew add a sparkle to the culinary experience. Yum yum yum.

We just love this place. We were introduced to Potager by a family get together and have been here a couple of times with friends who reckon the food and everything about Potager is better than most restaurants on the Gold Coast and we have to agree. So do yourself a favour and go for a wonderful lunch at this fantastic little restaurant in a perfect setting with great service.

Another wonderful experience of dining at The Potager. We were seated near the fireplace such a warm and inviting location. We sipped GSM red wine. We started with a shared vodka cured trout with beetroot and coddled egg. Then I had Pork Belly which was moist an flavorsome and crackle to die for. My wife had Fish of the day. Saddleback Salmon with eggplant puree and kale chips. The size of the meals were plentiful and affordable. Do yourselves a favour and visit The Potager at Carool Jeff an Melissa Carool

This is a really, really good restaurant. The food is imaginative, fresh and absolutely delicious. The gardens are delightful, the staff are warm and friendly, and the views are spectacular. I've been there several times now, and can't wait to go back again. Well done Potager!

We loved this restaurant! Outstanding in every regard..Seriously fantastic food that is beautifully presented + so delicious. Most herbs and veggies grown in the cottage garden they have there..The view is to die for. I have never come across the vantage point that looks back over the Gold Coast through the valley. It really is spectacular. We had lunch for a friend's birthday and when the meals arrived, the table looked amass of colourful design..It was as though a food stylist had whipped through the kitchen and we were on a food fashion shoot - if there is such a thing..Everyone was kind of gobsmacked it looked soon good....The service was perfect for us; not over done and always there when required..The floor staff were relaxed, funny + the atmosphere very friendly. It's also BYO which is fabulous, the tables and crockery are bespoke + locally designed. This added something else special to the experience.Finally the price is extremely reasonable for the quality of food, service + setting/experience...Really and truly one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long while..We would go there again in a flash.. Highly recommend you try Potager if nearby, and if you are not it's well worth the trip!!
