Description: 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.

Went for lunch. prices were very reasonable and the food was lovely. Nice atmosphere on the deck with views of the ocean and a beautiful breeze wafting through the open blinds.Service was excellent and a wine list with some unusual offerings. Only complaint was that the paella was only ordinary, all the other dishes we tried were lovely.

Came for dinner. We had a beautiful table out on the deck. Were so many entrees that sounded amazing so we shared 4 entrees and 1 main and 1 dessert. Food was consistent and wonderful. Pork belly was soft and tender with a crunchy delicious glaze. The king prawns were drizzled in the most delicious chilli and herb oil. The... More

my third visit, and third time ordering the chicken burger with fries. Just the words Chicken burger with fries may not conjure up a potentially gourmet experience for you, but when it's of such a high standard, using high quality ingredients, a chef who truly knows how to put flavours together, and an understanding of serving great quality food at...

I've only tried this newer cafe-restaurant in the area once,but the price was pretty good,but as most places like this the variety wasn't as good as I'd like as I'm a vegetarian.

Just got back from a week long family trip staying in Palm Beach, we sampled at least 5 restaurants/cafes and have to say without doubt the food at Avviva is the best. We ate breakfast/brunch here 4 times and love it. Fantastic service, great views, relaxed chilled vibe. Couldn't ask for more. The Veggie juice was superb and the ingredients... More

We had a wonderful family dinner here to celebrate our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for Brendan and Eddie. Our chilled champagne was poured on arrival and the celebrations began. We had a gorgeous candlelit table on the outside deck and were looked after so attentively. Everyone enjoyed the food, although the coffee rubbed steak on the night, ordered... More

I have had a few breakfasts at Avvia before. I love their setting so close to the beach, yet quiet and nice deck over the lawn area. Breaky menu is a bit more imaginative than the standard, and everything I've had has been delicious. However, I went there recently for dinner with 2 girlfriends. I was blown away! We shared...

We have been to this restaurant a few times, it's great to have a good local restaurant that serves consistently great food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The atmosphere on a balmy summers night is very nice. The service is good. Will definitely be dining there again soon.

I have enjoyed a number of meals at this great restaurant. Breakfasts are great, lunch fabulous as is the dinner menu. Staff are very friendly and attentive without being over the top. The food is fantastic and I can honestly say that there is no time that I have been disappointed with either the food or service; always something special... More
