AVVIA is a relaxed yet stylish restaurant located in Palm Beach, Gold Coast. We offer Beautiful coffee & cafe meals for breakfast, al a carte for lunch and stepping it up at dinner.Our food is made with the best ingredients we can find in our area: cultivated plants grown from heirloom seeds; wild-harvested leaves, flowers, barks and roots; local fish, seaweeds and coastal grasses; pastured meat, poultry and eggs from small farmers. These are the flavours of this place. The process of finding ingredients and transforming them into cuisine are not separate events but one continuous action constantly informed by cultural expectations and new ideas. We brine, cure and smoke as cooks have been doing for thousands of years but we also embrace modern cooking techniques. Our dishes are animated by flavours and textures both familiar and strange.

Great Food

My wife and I have visited Avvia numerous times and have always found the food to be excellent and the service very pleasant and personal. Located close to the beach (and close to our home), we find it an excellent restaurant to pop in mainly on week ends. We would highly recommend a visit.

First class food with professional and friendly service. Had the duck dish which was so tender. A friend had paella and declared it one of the best. Had a very interesting pinot from Israel to accompany our meal which was recommended by our waitress. Great recommendation! Only negative I felt desserts were not of quite the same standard as the...

Wonderful atmosphere, relaxed, intimate setting, fantastic service by Gail and Brendan, beautiful and scrumptious food, a great wine selection. A lovely place to spend an evening catching up with friends over a meal.

Lovely food, well prepared. We love Avvia. If you want lots of fried food, chips, etc, maybe go to an RSL or surf club. If you want something a bit more interesting, Avvia is well worth it. I don’t really want too many others to know about it bc it is such a gem, but we have had such good... More

This café is fully licensed and has a reasonably good menu. The food is good, coffee good and has indoor / outdoor seating. Service is very good but perhaps a little slow for some.

I have dined here several times, as it's just a short walk away. It's consistently good, with a changing menu and fresh produce. Service is attentive, food is above average, and I will keep going back. Lunch is also very pleasant on the outside deck with an ocean view and a gentle breeze.
