This bar is conveniently located on orchid avenue. Their craft beer selection is excellent. We only ordered bar food and it tasted yum! Staff were friendly and always attentive. Will come again next time i'm in surfers!

I didn't frequent the Avenue a lot in it's old position, however I love the new look, decor fit out etc! I came here on a Monday with a friend, just for a drink as we had already eaten (unfortunately, as the food looked great)....More

Nightly specials mean this place won't break the bank if funds are low. We had the meat and cheese plate and it was awesome. Service was excellent and the restaurant looks great. Will definitely recommend to others

Espresso martinis were great. Food was delicious and arrived quickly. And we had prompt and lovely service from a waitress. Only issue was a soggy pizza which was handled great by staff
