‘ALBA by Kuruvita’ is a brand-new venue
by renowned local chef, Peter Kuruvita.

Tucked away in Noosa Heads with calm grassy surrounds, ALBA embodies the essence of fine food and the natural elements of its coastal surrounds. Situated on Alba Close and built on the site of the original ‘Noosa White’ sand quarry, ALBA is the Latin word for “white” and Spanish “sunrise” or “dawn”.

‘ALBA by Kuruvita’ is a hub of food and beverage offerings, with Sunshine Coast produce and the local community at its heart. Combining a cafe, providore, pizzeria, and relaxed all-day bar offering that evolves into a stylish restaurant and cocktail bar as the day progresses. The venue also hosts ‘ALBA Chef’s Kitchen’, a creative space for cooking classes, private chefs’ tables, and kitchen studio. Those looking to enjoy Peter’s signature style of quality produce spiced with global flavours, including the famous snapper curry, will not be disappointed.

We look forward to revealing more as our plans come to fruition.  Join our mailing list for the latest updates.

“It is really exciting to be building a new venue again from the ground up. Working with the designers and developers – it is going to be a beautiful destination. I wanted ALBA to have a diverse range of offerings – there’s something for everyone! There’s a great opportunity to keep the surrounding community happy with the cafe, take-away woodfired pizza and a boutique providore. A stylish bar and all-day menu will draw golfers straight from the 18th hole at the bottom of the road. The dining room will offer either intimate dinners or open up for large events.

It’s the ‘Chef’s Kitchen’ that really excites me. I can’t wait to start on a cooking school & chef’s table programme – we’ll even be able to hire the space out as a wired studio kitchen with camera solutions. It’s a chefs dream!”.
