Pantry The

Reviewed By JudyGraham - Main Beach, Australia

Great place for coffee and a sandwhich, all freshly made, choice of breads and reasonably priced. Good coffee. The waitress who took our order was delightful, the young man delivering the meals was disinterested, with the meals coming out at odd times.

Avvia Cafe-Restaurant

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.

Reviewed By PJessSanB - Southport, Australia

I begged my partner to take me back simply because the dumpling dish was mesmerising.
And of course they were just as good the second time.
A little disappointed with the zucchini flowers that we found a bit lacking in flavour.
The beef tataki was beautiful and the serve of olives very generous and delicious.
The service was very polite once again from a gentleman who I believe would be Spanish or Brazilian. It was nice to feel harassed and have a peaceful dinner but still well looked after.

Govindas Pure Vegetarian

Reviewed By Spunkybabe - Burleigh Heads, Australia

This is a regular place for us to grab a quick veggie meal and walk over to Burleigh Headland for a relaxing meal.
Menu is a bit old. Same selection as years ago. Having said that, it is delicious and very affordable.
Very popular Place but not much Seating and more quick eat cafe style than sit in restaurant.

Indian Delights

Reviewed By Argy39 - Gold Coast, Australia

Ate here last night with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The food and service was terrific. Whist it is licensed they allowed us to BYO. We shared a number of entrees and main between us all and it worked very well. The food itself is probably "mellowed down" a bit to suit a more western pallet.But I do like spicy!! Quite a number of Indian people were eating here as well which is a good sign. This is a great, no nonsense suburban eatery that serves good quality food at reasonable prices with a very friendly and efficient staff.

Plantation House Cafe

Reviewed By Karen B - Gold Coast, Australia

Stumbled across this cafe on a rainy Saturday while looking for something else. Went for coffee only but ended up ordering breakfast.
Generous serving sizes, excellent coffee with many milk options (i can only have almond or coconut milk) and delicious food. I live on the northern Gold Coast, but I would travel down to Burleigh again to go here.

Commune

Reviewed By Ben M

I love this place and highly recommend it to anyone.. food/coffee is sooo good and the staff are always friendly! 6 Star!
My only gripe is that the music is often far too loud.. Would it be possible to relocate the speaker? In the kitchen or something if the staff want to hear loud music.. I love music and DJ but I’m not a fan of loud music while I eat.. not very relaxing!
Thanks
See you again soon

The Fish House

At The Fish House, our job is to buy the best available produce on a daily basis then try not to mess with it too much. We are heavily influenced by Southern Europe. That being said, we believe in the simple pleasures of olive oil and lemon juice, rather than butter & cream.

Reviewed By Andrew H

In my opinion this is by far the best restaurant in south-east Queensland and in my opinion the best between south-east Queensland and Melbourne. It’s just so rare to have honest fresh food cooked in a simple authentic Mediterranean style without the need to infuse completely, overcomplicate flavours and simply confuse and mix ingredients that were never intended to be together. This restaurant is about food, about quality, about good service, about honest delicious fresh Mediterranean style seafood. There’s nothing like it between here and Melbourne ; it is an absolute must go. Generally the menu changes by a substantial part based on what’s available and most ingredients are sought from the region where the product is best known and best grown. Queenslanders; do you self a favour and experience a truly authentic high quality restaurant that is nothing at like the rest of the homogeneous and typical restaurants that you will experience just about everywhere else in south east Queensland- particularly in Brisbane.
