Robina Pavilion (hidden behind the old school drive thru bottlo’) is worth hunting down next time you’re keen for a sunny Sunday brewski, a generous chicken parmy on a school night, or perhaps somewhere casual to treat the grandparents that you’ll both enjoy.
The new-look Robina Pavilion is bright and airy with blonde timber, soft pastels, vaulted ceilings and white cladding, plus wrap around windows and a breezy deck that takes full advantage of its lagoon-side location. There’s an outdoor bar and pizza oven for busy days, lounges shaded by colourful umbrellas and a terraced beer garden complete with daybeds, lawn chairs, festoon lights and DJs on weekends.
Simple and reasonably priced, the bistro menu includes all of your old favourites from beer battered snapper to salt and pepper calamari, chicken parmigiana, wood-fired pizza and a robust selection of steaks cooked on a Parrilla grill, Asado-style. Drinks wise, there’s a healthy representation of local and interstate craft beers alongside the OG beer brands, with beer towers available for the social drinkers together with a selection of cocktails.
