The Avalon on the Beach Restaurant and Kiosk

The locals have been waiting a long time for the Avalon Surf Club to take on a catering tenant.  They finally have and the results are spectacular.

We had a birthday in the family last week and I never miss an opportunity to dine out to celebrate.
The Avalon on the Beach is the new kid on the Northern Beaches dining scene, so we took the opportunity to try it out.  We have tried both the restaurant upstairs and the kiosk at beach level and neither disappointed in either quality of cuisine, or ambiance.  The view is magical and pretty much speaks for itself.

Check out all the visual splendour and I shall share all the details you need to know, at the bottom of this post.

So that's the restaurant and here's the kiosk at sand level.

Some people are good at capturing all the colour and movement of Avalon Beach.
