Nestled just off the Gold Coast Highway on Seventh Avenue in Palm Beach is Wildernis Cafe and Bar.

The brainchild of locals Andy Canfield and Josh Bailey, Wildernis is a fusion of a relaxed dining atmosphere with some of the best beers, wines and cocktails the Gold Coast has on offer.

Designed and constructed by the boys themselves, Wildernis is surrounded by a botanical border of useful plants – Andy and Josh are growing their own lemons and limes and have an internal herb garden, with the closed in honeycomb design sun roof, it forms a greenhouse effect – as well as setting the vibe as an indoor/outdoor garden space.
Speckled with hanging plants and stag horns, Wildernis creates a unique destination for lunch, after work drinks and the perfect spot for weekend digs.

The live music was awsome, great vibe. Beer was cold, burger was just OK, the bun was cold and hard killed what would of been a good burger.

Wildernis is our new favourite local breakfast spot. My partner loves his big breakys and wildernis kept him satisfied with ‘the Hercules’. we will be back again and will tell all our friends and family about it.

Arrived to find the downstairs restaurant closed, on a Friday night!!!
Too noisy upstairs, have to go to the bar to get drinks and order food. No table service for the money they are charging!
Not the dining experience I was looking for at all
Won't be back!!! Sorry

Definitely nothing to rave about. We got a call 15mins before our booking to say the rooftop was closed but you cant even eat the lunch menu up there anyways. We had to ask for menus after being sitted and waiting. Also the burger we had had no flavour was missing something was not impressed at all

From the outset, it's difficult to see where to enter this bar, no table at the front to direct new customers and when we walked to the bar and finally got served, the staff were very busy. We were sat on a table right in front of the kitchen door, so servers were struggling to get by. It wasn't a pleasant place to sit! Food was just average but the drinks were nice. Not up to the service standards of the other new palm beach nightspots.
