Harbour Town in Gold Coast is known for its affordable designer goods, similar to Bicester Village in London. I found Harbour Town less exciting compared to the latter, save for the Ralph Lauren store as it had smaller sizes.

Jacket & Top: Puma

Come lunchtime, we stopped at Nonna’s, an eatery that boasts three different yet connecting restaurants. Customers can choose to sit at any of the three restaurants and order from any of the three menus –Italian, Seafood or Steakhouse. The place was crowded, but service was quite good despite the lunch chaos and the wait staff were pleasant.

Aussie Pizza

We tried a dish from each menu – pizza, fish & chips and steak. The Aussia Pizza (AUD14.95) was a hearty dish of bacon, egg and melted mozzarella. The pan crust was adequately light yet chewy, which held the toppings together nicely.

Hoki ‘n’ Chips

I found the Hoki ‘n’ Chips (AUD16.95) just average. The chip I felt, tasted better than the fish. rif however, didn’t mind it. They gave us a lot of chips, so we were pretty overloaded with carbs that afternoon.

Ribeye on the Bone

My Ribeye on the Bone (AUD33.95) was decent value for money. I got a 400gm steak cooked medium rare with chips and a side salad. Tastewise, it was nothing to shout about. I found the meat rather rough, and the fat wasn’t as tasty as I hope it would be.

On a whole, the food wasn’t memorable but service was commendable. I still think it’s a decent place to have lunch while shopping till you drop.

Ambiance: 6/10
Price: 5.5/10
Food: 5/10
Verdict: The food was average, but Nonna’s is a good place to do lunch if you’re at shopping in Harbourtown.
