About Willow Dining

Take one small, moodily lit room, a sprinkling of pavement tables and a crowd-pleasing menu and you have Willow Dining Room on Gold Coast Highway in Burleigh Heads. Exposed bricks impart warmth and a care-worn timber door is reincarnated as a tabletop with mismatched vintage chairs, to make this relaxed, no-rules restaurant a local favourite. Kitschy cuteness, crafty cocktails and signature wines blend seamlessly with a fusion menu of jazzy, punchy flavours as seen in dishes of beer-battered tempura zucchini flowers, filled with Persian feta on a bed of greens, tomato and saffron mayo. For something more substantial, opt for jerk chicken infused with apple hickory smoking chips, zucchini, halloumi, saffron rice and beet reduction; or slow-cooked leg of lamb and vegetable ratatouille.

Love everything and we are coming back so soon...


A great pace to dine out!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, I booked early as I had been disappointed with not getting in on a few occasions. Willow certainly didn't disappoint! V nice staff, great share plates, enjoyed every morsel! Will definitely be back!


Great presentation, mouthwatering tapas

Most amazing food and staff on the gold coast. The best service I have ever received at a table.


Amazing food
Decided to try this, the wife wasn't too keen on the menu.
We got there and they had a degustation menu for 2, so we went with that.
The food is amazing, the wife LOVED it too.

Do yourself a favour and order the degustation menu.

The only downside, is the location. The traffic noise is bad (but they close the doors)
We sat near the front, but someone close by was smoking and was really bad. We moved and it was better until they closed the doors.

Other than that, the staff and food was superb.


Food was fantastic, scallops were melt in your mouth! The onllllyyyy downside was the music which sounded like hotel lobby music. They needed something more upbeat to add to the atmosphere. Will be back again for sure!


Very trendy fine dining at great prices, food was melt in your mouth delicious. Good ambience, great service from the gentleman, cozy not pretentious. A very very must for the GC, well done!!!
