About Ioesco - Cafe Cucina Bar

Ioesco translates as ‘I am going out’, a fittingly momentous title for one of Gold Coast’s premier Italian restaurants, Ioesco - Cafe Cucina Bar. The likes of Gordon Ramsay have graced Ioesco’s stylish dining room, where sparkling chandeliers, a marble bar and water views are tempered by a relaxed vibe and alfresco seating in the tranquil Sanctuary Cove surrounds. Passionate and knowledgeable staff work the floor delivering contemporary interpretations of classic Napoli cuisine that, happily, don’t compromise on size or quality. Moreish starters such as duck breast with marsala mushroom cream sauce offer perfect preludes to mains like Barossa chicken breast with king prawns, avocado and garlic brandy cream sauce as well as spinach and buffalo ricotta ravioli with Napoli cream sauce.

Absolutely delicious. Profiteroles a must??????



Beautiful setting at the Sanctuary Cove marina. Price is high but the food was delicious, with typical Italian portion sizes. I ordered steak at medium rare but what I received was a long way passed medium. If you have available funds to spoil yourself with a good meal then I recommend it.


Great food and service. Our families favorite place to eat



Our meals were amazing, the staff were attentive and the atmosphere and setting were perfect. Highly recommended. We have definitely found our new fave restaurant!


Beautiful food, both meals were lovely. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants great food and service. Definitely coming back again.


Great meal. We shared fresh tasting bruschetta and delicious pork belly. Then a perfectly cooked, man-pleasing steak with delicious mushroom sauce. And the risotto was also good! Great service! Will be back!


AMAZING!!! Best steak I have ever eaten!! The setting, the service, the staff, the food (omg the food!!!) By far the best meal I have eaten. If you are heading to QLD you must make a trip to Ioesco! Very much recommended!!




Great restaurant! Highly recommend the chocolate pizza for dessert. All our meals were delicious!


A girlfriend and I had lunch today part business/pleasure. We arrived at 12.30pm and left around 5.30pm - lots of talking!! Not once were we made to feel that we needed to leave. Dinner was ready to be served!! We enjoyed daily specials - Duck Ravoli for entree and main course daily special was King Prawns wrapped in Proscuitto with Rice and beautiful sauce. Was magnificent. The service was fantastic - very attentive. Thankyou for a great experience!!! Love it!!


We held our wedding at Ioesco & couldn't have been happier with our choice of venue. Max, Amanda and all their staff went above & beyond to make our day perfect! We decided on Ioesco as it is our favourite resturant and now all the guests from our wedding love your resturant as well! Thank-you so much for the great food, great wine & amazing service!


Food was excellent. The Antipasto di Casa for two easily served three of us and would have done as a meal in itself. Memorable tastes in each component. The daily special - a rabbit ragu served with pappardelle - was luscious and satisfying. The kids enjoyed their pizzas and mousses. The wine list is biased towards sav blancs with only one Riesling. I assume that reflects current tastes. Service was attentive and well-timed.


Great fresh food. Great wine list Great service. Best Modern Italian food for miles. Max you have done it again. Keep up the good work.


I found this restaurant on AGFG and decided to try it. I was not dissapointed! The staff were friendly the food was great and it all came out quickly. Will be the new place we go to dinner. I also found the prices very resonable.


Fabulous food and service. Not enough restaurants of this quality on the Gold Coast.


Amazing food, fantastic service, wonderful wine list, relaxing and modern decor. Thoroughly recommend Ioesco to anyone.


Awesome menu and knowledgeable staff - always ready with suggestions and have made up something special for me on many occasions! The comfy chairs are great to sink into after a full meal :) For any occasion, Ioesco is perfect.


Now our favourite restaurant! The food is always excellent, the wine selection is extensive and the service is fantastic. Would highly recommend this restaurant to even the fussiest diner.


Everything about this restaurant was exceptional. Out of a party of five adults everybody loved each dish. The service was wonderful. Our waiter never hovered but was always there when we required him. The seating was fantastic. I had a sleeping child in my arms the whole night but the chairs were large and comfortable so I never felt uncomfortable. We were all made to feel welcome, including the children.


love you, but would like some more seafood on the menu, eg oysters and lobster


Fantastic restaurant in every regard. Dined here for 11 meals while on holiday and they were all superb!
Service is fantastic and both owners do a wonderful job in making you feel welcome and well looked after.
Highly recommended.
