Just a city girl who dreams of dusty trails and endless oceans.

Great food, great wine, great entertainment
The Gold Coast is home to many great restaurants, and The Avenue is no exception. Serving up delicious and affordable Italian dishes, this restaurant lies in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Despite its convenient location, The Avenue manages to stay away from the manic crowds of the Gold Coast, creating a relaxing atmosphere with great food, great wine, and great entertainment.
At this Italian delight, food is your friend but don't come looking to skim calories. The meals are huge, flavourful and delicious. There is something for everyone on their extensive menu, ranging from the classic pizza and pasta, to steaks, burgers, salads and share platters. And yes, if you can't finish your dish, they let you take it home.
The Avenue sets itself apart from its counterparts with live entertainment 7 days a week. Monday nights you will have a blast with open mic karaoke. Tuesdays bring a great lineup of live bands, while Wednesday is comedy night (our favourite night at The Avenue). Thursdays mean more great live bands, and Fridays and Saturdays are the DJ nights. You can also join the Sunday Session from 3.00pm.
You will find The Avenue on Orchid Avenue (I know, original right?) just one street back from the Esplanade and beach in Surfers Paradise. It is just across the street from the Hilton Surfers Paradise, and is open 7 days a week from 11am. If you are driving, just north of the restaurant is a parking building, or you can try underneath the Hilton. You can make a reservation online here.
