Restaurants There are numerous restaurants in the village – some of the better ones include: • Boulevard Bistro – modern French, a local landmark. Great atmosphere make this a must. So busy you must book! We love their oysters and champagne from 5pm on a Friday to start the weekend • Sa-Biang – great Thai food, terrific setting on the main drag. • Sky Thai – eat in or take away (be warned, cash only !). • Ninja – modern Japanese with sushi and sashimi their specialty. Try the Wagu steak ! • Maestro – tapas bar with a great upstairs deck for a late afternoon Sangria. • Flourish – great place to eat and watch some live music as well. • Alma – great light meals/tapas, sit out the front and watch the locals promenade. • Pizzico Italiano – good honest Italian food, down a little lane so look hard ! • Clareville Kiosk – this is a gorgeous little Restaurant tucked away and very close to Clareville Beach. Worth indulging yourself there. • Meltimis – small restaurant with a Greek influence. • Sunset Diner – tuck into a huge burger ! • Bangkok Sidewalk – great alternative Thai food. Further afield, there are some terrific places to eat and relax in style: • The Boat House – local sensation in Palm Beach. Located on Pittwater just near the golf course, it offers, an idyllic location overlooking the water, great food. Local shoot location for “Home and Away”. • Jonah’s Restaurant and Function Venue – one of the best known places to eat and watch the whales frolic in the distance. There’s a sense of being on retreat at this exclusive cliff’s-edge restaurant. After your meal, take your cocktail and snuggle up on a terrace couch, listening to the sound of waves below. • The Newport Arms Hotel – known locally as “The Arms”, this is Justin Hemmes newest addition to his stable of great restaurants with view over Pittwater from the dining areas/beer garden (although it’s a bit more sophisticated that your average beer garden !). • Barrenjoey House – sister restaurant to the Boat House, it offers a more traditional menu. • The Beach House – offers modern Australian cuisine on top of the Avalon Beach surf club. • Patonga Hotel – take a ferry trip to Patonga and have lunch overlooking the ocean. You can also get a water taxi though this is a bit more expensive. • Cottage Point inn – great, modern fusion of Australian and French, great institution. Drive or get a seaplane there ! Cafes There are lots of cafes, some of the better ones include: • Swell – Old Barrenjoey Road, near Woolworths. Great coffee and chai, some food as well • Nourished – a local’s favorite, sit on the footpath sipping lattes and having a healthy meal. • Chelsea Teahouse – Old Barrenjoey Road, serves nice light meals • Chill Bar – Old Barrenjoey Road, near Woolworths, coffee, gelato and light meals • Franks – inside an arcade off Avalon Parade, serves light meals and coffee/tea/etc • Alfonso’s at Elvina – Elvina Parade, great place to chill a mixture of Italian and South American, plus they do a paella day every month. • The Sneaky Grind – tucked away in a lane off Old Barrenjoey Road. Great breakfast treats. • Bookoccino – have a quick latte, find and book or go to a book night ! • Avalon Organics – tuck into a veggie burger or try the hummus dip, you can also shop for all your wholesome needs ! There are also heaps of places in Newport and Palm Beach as well – the list is almost endless !
