About Jonez on Ephraim

Water views, a select wine list and dishes cooked by a Michelin-star awarded Chef is what awaits Gold Coast locals at Jonez on Ephraim restaurant in Paradise Point. Newly relocated to Ephraim Island, this elegant venue has a full glass frontage to let in an abundance of natural light, creating a relaxed ambience to enjoy contemporary cuisine, prepared by critically acclaimed Chef Gary Jones. Spanning tasting plates to a la carte offerings, each dish draws on classic French techniques and the finest produce; to start, perhaps choose local bug tails, cooked with herbs, garlic and lemon. For the main affair, delve into the likes of pot-roasted lamb rump, sautéed Brussel sprouts and bacon, parsnip and apple purée; before an indulgent dessert of warm chocolate fondant and cherry jam ice cream.

The food is always exceptional


Outstanding seafood, incredibly fresh, wonderfully executed and everything on the menu sounded great that I took a while to decide what to order. Grear service from friendly staff. Had an amazing dinner over looking the waterfront and outstanding value for the quality. Cant wait to dine again.


One of the best places to eat
Both the wife and I were very impressed with the quality of the food. Some of the BEST we've tried on the Gold Coast, great staff. Great location and amazing food, makes this one of our favourites.

The 3 course menu is truly superb. We'll be back again soon


Consistently excellent
Always a mouth-watering menu, excellent food and service. Tables not too close together & no overwhelming 'entertainment' so you can talk without being drowned out by other guests or live music. Always leave Jonez in a good mood having experienced a great evening out.


Amazing food from a real mcoy Chef.



Birthday party
Wonderful time. The service was excellent. The food was mouth watering! They accept byo which is a huge plus!


What a great restaurant. Food, service and setting can not be faulted. Great asset for Sanctuary Cove. Will return again and again. Thanks Gary Jones.



Excellent tapas menu with good variety and ample portions at a reasonable cost. It is good to have a restaurant with some style in the area. The staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. The BYO option is great. Well worth a visit - regularly! Sincerely Scoffer


Gary Jones creates very innovative cuisine which is a much needed addition to Sanctuary Cove and Hope Island. Duch liver parfait is outstanding and the Prawn dumplings are a winner as well, just to name a few of all the outstanding dishes who reflect the love and passion of a true Chef. The service is very friendly and professional. We also like the ambience.


Outstanding Food. Quality ingredients. Beautifully presented dishes. Well thought out, varied, balanced menu. BYO and licensed. Delightful waterside venue. We often eat at this wonderful establishment. Our expectations are always surpassed. Gary Jones has also catered for large private parties , preparing the freshest seafood from Bruny Island imaginable. Our guests were fulsome in their praise; many saying that it was the best fare of any party they could ever remember attending. Congratulations Gary and team in bringing world class quality to Sanctuary Cove. We fully understand how he was awarded his Michelin Star: a rarity in Australia.


Breakfast... Great start to any day


It is great to have a restaurant serving really good food in Sanctuary Cove.


Degustation Menu was so good, there were to many favorites to pick one. Chef Gary Jones obviously cooks with love and great skill. Loved it!!


This was a true delight. The quality was second to no one.


WOW!!! Tonight was our first time at Jonez on Food and the experience exceeded our expectations. The staff were friendly, cheerful and polite and had a great knowledge of the menu. The food was outstanding and excellent value for money. I had the duck and my husband had the lamb and both meals were creative and tasty without being over done. The quality of ingredients were first class. We shared a bottle of NZ Pinot Noir from the wine list and loved that as well. I highly recommend this restaurant and wish the chef/ owner every success. Thank you for a fabulous dinner!


WOW!!! at last we have found an outstanding owner chef with flair, located close to home. Great relaxing atmosphere with VERY friendly staff. Beautiful flavours with every bite. Generous servings with all dishes and at very affordable prices. Cant wait to head back again this weekend. If you love outstanding food with awesome flavours you MUST try Jonez on food. Just goes to show what a diffence the Michelin star can make to your night out. Thanks to Gary Jones and his friendly staff


Heard recently that a Chef with a Michelin Star under his belt had opened a restaurant in Sanctuary Cove, so I had to come for a visit and it lived up to all expectations and more! Came for lunch and had the lamb, which just melted in my mouth and it was ONLY $25. The portion was quite big! Will definitely be coming back and can't wait to try their degustation!
