Lunch at Oskars on the Gold Coast

On the Gold Coast for a couple of days - garden maintenance!  As we landed at midday at Coolongatta - for a change (we usually fly to Brisbane and drive down), we popped in to Oskars at Burleigh Heads for a quick lunch.   Beautiful location.
 And we actually sat at the table on the front right!
To tell you the truth, I didn't bother taking a photo of the food because even though the menu sounded good, I really didn't have great hopes.  Boy, was I surprised.  Chef/Owner Marty Kollrep and his wife Mandy are doing something right.

Hal ordered a main size of the entree Coconut Prawns, with a Curry Sauce on the side.  They looked amazing, and he said they tasted even better.  The Curry Sauce was quite sweet, but in a good way!
I ordered Balmain Bug Tails and Prawns Tempura, with finely sliced fresh Fennel in a creamy Garlic Aioli sauce.   Really light and delicious.  We also had a side salad with a Walnut Dressing, and of course - wait for it - Fries! 

Surprisingly good lunch with an amazing view.
