Vanitas reopened its doors and has become an Italian dining experience to be enjoyed.

We have been inspired by our heritage which runs through the core of our Palace and we want to share this with everyone. From the minute the doors open, our family becomes part of your family.

The menu focuses on fresh, locally sourced ingredients and features starters, pasta dishes, main courses, sides and desserts. In addition, this menu will be complimented by a tasting menu with paired wines. The menu changes seasonally and will feature a daily special, however there a few key elements that will constantly provide a unique dining experience:

  • All pastas will be handmade onsite daily by the Chefs
  • Bread will be cut in the restaurant on a large butchers style block

The talented Team in Vanitas will provide elegant service delivered in a casual, warm and friendly environment. Nergroni, Aperol Spritz and Prosecco will be offered upon arrival followed by a range of Italian wines that have been carefully selected from the most important regions of Italy’s wine landscape. In addition, a range of award winning wines from Australia and New Zealand will accompany the Italian varieties.  

Renowned among the best fine dining restaurants on the Gold Coast, Vanitas is an exceptional experience perfectly situated overlooking the sparkling lagoon with an exquisite 13-metre painting presenting the life of Gianni Versace on the opposing wall.
