THE AVENUE IS THE HEART OF SURFERS PARADISE NIGHTLIFE.

The Avenue Restaurant is Italian Influenced New York Style.
The main focus at The Avenue Restaurant is on quality and local produce. With the Ferrari of Pizza Ovens which can turbo cook a pizza in 90 seconds, The Tomahawk Steak which is 1.2 kilo of the most succulent meat you will ever eat, The Double Bronx Burger which is a challenge to finish and our signature Crispy Pork Belly on Apple Slaw, there is something for everyone at The Avenue Restaurant in Surfers Paradise. The setting is a New York style Warehouse in the heart of Surfers Paradise

One of only a few places in Australia pouring Carlton Fresh from copper tanks, the only Unpasteurised Beer on tap and with a great mix of Sessional and Craft Beers, just like The Avenue itself full of personality, fresh and original.

The Avenue = A Destination to Dine, Drink and Party!

    We made a booking for dinner, only to show up to a closed restaurant. Turns out they had put a post on Facebook saying they’d be closed (no reason given) - a courtesy call to those with bookings would be more professional then letting them show up to an empty restaurant

    Great place to sit and eat and watch the world go by outside. The Thursday night pizza special was great value for our large table and the waitress went out their way to accommodate our seating arrangements. The Strawberry Dacquiries were a winner too.

    My friends and I had a last minute reservation for our last night in surface paradise. We had the best experience and the food was delicious 5* quality. Our waiter was amazing, he had a great attitude and made sure we were comfortable, made sure he came out of his way to apologise when our food was a little late due to a lot of customers which was understandable. He made sure we had enough drinks and topped up our water.

    We came to The Avenue expecting some good vibes and good food. Unfortunately the waitress killed any vibes we had. The food was over priced but was tasty but the service took away from us enjoying ourselves. Telling us to wait at the end as she didn't think we had paid was also not great...

    I was very disappointed to find that the restaurant was closed after open table accepted my reservation on Christmas Day. I understand that restaurants can take a break but someone should have informed me or the reservation should not have been able to get through.

    Food was pretty dissapointing. Very bland, barely cooked and pretty expensive. Serveal people on my table didn't finish and left still hungry. Ripped off on the beer tower. You get far less beer than indicated due to the huge cooling block immersed in it. Won't be going back.

    Dinner was good and we had a good waitress. My only issue was we had a mixture of teenagers with us in between 16 and 20 I understand asking to see ID I really do but I had something to say as I was annoyed when you come to our table a 3rd time asking them all again. That has put me off hazving a dinner there again with teenagers.

    They were amazing at The Avenue went above and beyond with their service to make me and my girlfriends night really special. It was my girlfriends birthday and they sorted out a cake and even sung her happy bday on the karaoke night. I highly recommend having a look if you are in surfers paradise is a great venue.
