Las Palmas

Palm Beach

Las Palmas is a stunning Latin American restaurant and bar with sea views, entered via a pink staircase off the Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach.

Tucked away behind the Palm Beach Surf Club, Las Palmas, is perched above a surf shop. Diners can take a seat in the gorgeous pink retro California-inspired dining room or on the wraparound balcony with views over the beach.

There's nothing rustic about the menu at Las Palmas, which takes the traditional flavours of Latin America and elevates them to another level, using fresh local produce with a creative twist.
