Welcome, to L’Altro at The Valley Estate.

L’Altro is all about a life lived differently, a culinary philosophy without boundaries.

Set within The Valley Estate’s captivating Manor, L’Altro initially opened for an exclusive 3-month period from 1 January to 1 April 2024. Due to popular demand, L’Altro returned for selected dates in May 2024, including a special Truffle Weekend. Limited dates have been released for July 2024. Born to feed your deepest culinary desires, L’Altro is a pop-up restaurant collaboration between two iconic Gold Coast venues – Balboa Italian and The Valley Estate.

Combining a re-imagined, old-world Italian style with Mediterranean influence and the finest Australian produce, L’Altro invites you upon an experiential dining journey that will both excite and tantalise. L’Altro showcases a daily changing set menu, built around a backbone of exquisite meats and seafoods. Our philosophy embraces cooking over open coals and flames – a theme which is incorporated throughout the menu.

L’Altro sits differently within its setting; a re-imagination of what a space can be. Uniting The Valley Estate’s Manor’s existing visual splendour with the ethos of L’Altro to create a unique restaurant venue. Ancient olive trees take centre-stage, resting beneath sparkling chandeliers, framing a different vision for L’Altro.
