ALBA BY KURUVITA

A brand new venue by renowned chef, Peter Kuruvita.

Just a few minutes' drive from Hastings Street, tucked away in the elegant Parkridge Resort, Noosa Heads, ALBA by Kuruvita embodies the essence of fine food and the natural elements of its coastal surrounds.

ALBA is a hub of food and beverage offerings, with local produce and the Noosa community at its heart. The beautifully appointed space combines a cafe, providore, pizzeria, and relaxed all-day bar offering that evolves into a stylish restaurant and cocktail bar as the day progresses.

During the day, the venue opens up to calm grassy surrounds and the coastal breeze. Start the day with a fresh juice or locally roasted First Batch coffee. Weekend breakfasts will become a leisurely affair featuring a special weekend menu.

Breakfast is relaxed and casual, serving a menu with unique Sri Lankan breakfast specials. Lunch and dinner in the restaurant provides a premium serviced experience with linen set tables

A light and varied lunch menu is served in a relaxed and casual environment which will evolve into an intimate dining experience in the evening with table service and a premium wine list.

The menu will feature Peter’s signature style of global flavours and the Sri Lankan spices of his childhood, expressed in a contemporary manner to let seasonal produce and local seafood shine through.

Offering a beautiful selection of vegetarian dishes, premium cuts of meat, and a large array of specialty seafood. Freshly shucked oysters, crustaceans, and seafood straight off the trawler will be a highlight, including Peter’s famous snapper curry.

ALBA bar continues to serve beautiful cocktails and chilled local beers into the evening with a tasty bar snack menu and woodfired pizza able to be enjoyed in casually elegant surrounds.

Be sure to drop by ALBA Providore, a boutique space offering daily essentials, wine, antipasto, gourmet products, and a selection of gifts and Peter's cookbooks.

The venue also hosts ‘ALBA Chef’s Kitchen’, a creative space for cooking classes, private dining chefs’ tables, and kitchen studio for hire with camera solutions. Be sure to check the website for the full schedule of cooking classes available.
