La Piazza Waterfront Restaurant, Runaway Bay, Gold Coast

Andreas, along with his wife, owns and operates this delightful restaurant. While his wife cooks up a storm in the kitchen, Andreas mingles with the customers, assisting with wine and food choices as well as socialising.

The restaurant is roomy, with interesting additions everywhere. Here you don’t have to lean up against the big semi circle bar. There are comfortable tables and stools placed at spacious intervals around the bar. Allowing you and your party to enjoy pre dinner drinks, simply sliding your glass onto the bar for a refill.

The food here is absolutely divine. Menus were offered, however so was the opportunity to leave the meal choice to Andreas. We opted for the latter, which saw us receive cleverly designed entrees including, seafood, stuffed olives, gourmet meats and general tapas.

Main meals consisted of the specialty slow cooked beef which when tasted, was an amazing tender meat, accompanied by lightly flavoured vegetables designed to tantalise the taste buds, Croatian style.


If you’re seeking something more personalised than a dinner out in Runaway Bay, be sure to pay Andreas a visit. The staff will be more than happy to assist with your lunch or dinner requirements. Should you feel like indulging in some entertaining conversation to accompany your meal, be sure to ask for Andreas. This personable character loves to mingle with his customers.

Definitely worth a visit!
