We all have a craving for burgers from time to time, right? The Burgster, a restaurant inspired by the hipster culture of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg warehouses, is a must-see.

5. Balboa Italian Restaurant
Do you have a strong desire for Italian cuisine? Balboa Italian Restaurant is the ideal location and only a 1 minute drive or a short 10 minute walk from Royal Palm Resort. Since 2016, the restaurant has been bringing Italy to the Gold Coast. They work hard to source the best local and imported ingredients and combine traditional Italian techniques with modern interpretations. As a result, they can give the highest quality dining experience.
Pizza, salads, pasta, gnocchi, and risotto are available on their extensive menu. You can even get gluten-free pizza and pasta, and vegan options are available for the rest of the menu.
6. The Scottish Prince
The Scottish Prince was founded in 2017 by the same people who founded The Cambus Wallace, one of the Gold Coast’s oldest and most renowned cocktail bars. The restaurant, one of Palm Beach’s best, was named after the ship of the same name, which ran aground on the Gold Coast in 1887.
Find the large wooden door hidden down the lane if you want to visit The Scottish Prince. There, you can eat rustic home-style food or sip one of the 450 whiskies on offer. The restaurant has a fantastic bar with hundreds of whiskies from all over the world and delicious cocktails.
However, they also serve a dinner reminiscent of traditional British pub fare with a delicious Gold Coast twist. They offer gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian options and a healthy children’s menu.
7. The Collective Palm Beach
Do you want to go to an epic dining destination? The Collective Palm Beach, as the name suggests, has five kitchens serving American, Asian, Italian, Greek, and Mexican cuisine. The foodie hub has an ample, beautiful open space to seat up to 300 people.
The Collective Palm Beach has a breezy indoor-outdoor vibe that includes cosy bench seating, greenery, a pink frangipani tree, umbrellas, festoon and fairy lighting for after dark. When it gets too hot or rains, a series of retractable roofs will keep you cool or warm.
Best of all, it’s only a short 7 minute walk from your apartment at Royal Palm so you can kick back and listen to some live music and have a few cocktails without the worry of driving.
