Kingfish carpaccio as good as you'll find anywhere. Sri Lankan curry with barramundi (served without rice) just spectacular. Came with green mango and this delightful Asian sprout salad. Interesting wine list and Mel really knows her stuff and makes good recommendations. We shouldn't have dessert but the rhubarb cheesecake was (thankfully) too hard to resist. If they did frequent flyer... More

Wonderful place for lunch. The food is innovative and delightful. Not cheap but the lunch special is good value. Good Staff and good service. A table on the balcony is. A plus.

Went here for NYE dinner with my partner. Love the ambience of this place and setting is amazing, but compared to other hatted restaurants I've been to, presentation of the food was there, but taste? Standard. Had zucchini fritters 1st. Sauce was nice but mostly could taste the fritter batter than zucchini filling. Scallops had the flavour, but we're cooked... More

Wedding anniversary so somewhere special was in order. This place is very special, the location is absolutely beautiful with views onto Pearl Beach, the restaurant is very simple and elegant "beach house". Took the menu advise and ordered the "little plates" options of three entrees and one dessert each to share so we both enjoyed eight dishes. The wine menu... More

What an awesome location. Right at the doorstep of the picturesque Pearl Beach. Even if the food is mediocre, the sounds of lapping waves and the smell of the sea salt as the breeze wafts over you would be sufficient to edifice your hunger. But fear not. The food is superb. Chef Fox has been a long time and his... More

As we walked down the tree-lined street, serenaded by native birds, we celebrated the location and the calmness. Entering the restaurant, that calmness and feeling of relaxation continued. Staff were all super friendly and nice and the location to die for!!! The menu is unique ... a series of 'small meals' which are basically entrees and then some main meals.... More

So many other reviewers have ably covered the fantastic food and interesting wine list at this longstanding Central Coast establishment. Although its been five years between visits to Pearls on the Beach, there's two things that stand out over and above so many other restaurants. First is the warm and sincere engagement with all the staff. There was no pompous... More

First time here and I'd heard good things. The service was fine, couldn't fault it. Decided to do the 3 small dish option - I had the beetroot, scallops and the bugs tails. The beetroot was a little larger than expected and at first I thought I may have ordered too much food. It was very tasty with the feta... More

I went with a friend not having been for many years. It was a fantastic experience. We had a table on the balcony and watched the sky go from blue to the evening. The staff are friendly but not intrusive. There is plenty of variety on the menu. As people have mentioned you can order 3 small or 1 small... More
