A beautiful little cafe, right by the beach. The menu is filled with delicious healthy food and drinks, and the staff offered some great advice on things to do in the area.

We have been dining at Avvia for a number of years now and we just keep coming back. The favourites are always on the menu and the specials, whilst not a huge selection, are often the pick of the menu. The service sets Avvia apart and last Saturday evening's meal was no exception. Prices have climbed a little since it... More

Amazing g view over the ocean combined with excellent food and service made for a perfect dinner. Eddie and the team have created an outstanding, eclectic menu. I highly recommend the ravioli with lobster bisque.

Good coffee and table service. Patchy on the food. One great meal out of three. Homemade falafel faultless with fresh greens. Burger - so so and octopus salad nothing to write home about. We went back for breakfast. The poached eggs were perfect but the bacon undercooked. I also went back for takeaway coffee with the family waiting in the... More

Lovely little restaurant, beach views from the deck. Great ambience, delicious food, and friendly staff. Have been several times for breakfast, lunch and dinner and will certainly go back. Went this time for lunch, we both had the specials , my Jew fish was delicious and my husbands steak cooked to perfection. Good wines too!!! Highly recommend Avvia.

This use to be a lovely local cafe with great food. Not anymore!! Had breakfast here and probably the worst I have ever had!! Eggs tasted like vinegar, mushrooms and bacon cold and dried up. 5 of us dinned here, and all our food was terrible. Not sure if they have changed owners or what, maybe they need to review... More

This little local find in Palm Beach is a great find. Service was wonderful, given it was Father's Day I expected to wait but not at all. Drinks were topped up attentively. We had a large group of us and all but two really enjoyed their meal. Big boys loved their steaks, I may have made the wrong choice for... More

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.
