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. This Is What AVVIA Is About.

Consistently good

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.

Excellent meal. Nice waitress. Unfortunately when the bill arrived and we were charged $27 corkage fee it was quite a let down. Would rather pay a couple of dollars extra for the meal than be hit with this over the top fee.

Been to this place a few times and have tried most of the menu, dessert is a must. Staff are on the job and are very attentive to your needs.

I came here with my girlfriend and it was exceptional. There are a lot of nice places to eat near the beach around Burleigh/Palm beach but this was a standout by far. The location couldn't be better, the food was stunning and prompt and the staff were friendly. Looking forward to coming back!

A family outing for mothers day. The 3 course lunch was very good. The crab pumpkin soup was excellent. The salmon main was perfectly done. The rib eye was good but only offered in medium doness. Vegetables were excellent with still some crunch. The up side down pineapple cake with a goat cheese mousse dessert was very tasty.The service was... More

I had been to this cafe once before when it first opened, and remember it being quite nice, but not amazing, as until last weekend I hadn't been inclined to go back. 6 of us tried it for breakfast and it was appalling in so many ways. Firstly, on entry we asked for a table. The place was half empty.... More

Went here for breakfast and dinner. Have to try the fresh juices you can have at breakfast, also have yummy herbal teas. Dinner menu is not large, but the food you get is mouth watering delicious and very fresh. I noticed in the little garden section at the back, hydroponic veggies and herbs were growing. Loved the fresh delicious food... More

Visiting a friend who recently moved to Palm Beach (from Mornington Peninsula), we wanted to dine out Friday night. With no reservation and arriving early at about 5.30pm (Avvia opens 6.00pm) we were warmly welcomed by the owner/chef/ maitre'd, and smiling woman (who turned out to be our waitress), and then asked where we'd like to sit (Friday night remember!)....

We have been visiting Avvia for a couple of years now....about ten occasions. The setting has always been the draw card for us although the food has always been satisfactory. When we went back last month however, the food had made a remarkable improvement. The quantity, quality and presentation were wonderful. We were really overdoing it at dessert time but... More
