The Evida Cafe is ideally located on Seaview Rd Henley Beach, with ample parking alongside, and the beach shopping area across the street. The Cafe offers expansive panoramic views, with a wonderful Al fresco area on the elevated verandah accessed by french doors. Long and spacious, Evida has a modern lounge area at the entrance, then a huge tiled bar- counter, diagonally placed towards the centre of the restaurant. Large floor to ceiling curved windows on two sides give a fabulous view of the beach, pier and sea. The wall colours vary between soft olive greens, dark feature walls & natural wood, while a stairwell is concealed behind a green glass wall that features, bright modern paintings of cafe and sea scenes. Polished wooden floors are intermixed with carpeted areas, altogether modern, colourful and interesting. Large family groups are catered for as well as two and four table settings, TV viewing is available at both ends of the restaurant. Mouth watering cakes, cookies and gelati ice-creams are displayed at the counter. The menu is extensive, sophisticated and well priced. We chose for lunch, Atlantic Salad, chargrilled, topped with lemon beurrre blanc sauce, served with steamed jasmine rice & saut'eed spinach, with pine nuts, cooked to perfection.
From the special board Crab Rissotto, pan fried crab meat, spring onions, cherry tomatoes & arborio rice in a sauce, with chilli and lemon zest, a satisfying choice. The restaurant was packed, with a vibrant friendly atmosphere predominating, complimented by excellent courteous service. We finished with an excellent coffee (Coffex) smooth with a nutty after taste, finished with good coffee art. Two cakes, difficult to choose from such a selection. Excellent Cafe/Restaurant.
