Where to dine during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games

The 2018 Commonwealth Games kick off on the Gold Coast next month and to help travellers curb their cravings, OpenTable has rounded up the best spots for spectators (and even athletes!) to grab a bite to eat in between events.

A handful of events will also be held outside of the Gold Coast this year, with Brisbane homing cycling and shooting in Chandler and Belmont respectively, while basketball games will be split between Townsville and Cairns – therefore the dining experts have everyone covered.
