What a view! Seriously this is a great place to being friends and family and show off the stunning coast line while eating some of the best seafood around. An added bonus is their huge support to the local community. When I also approached them for a small voucher for a community event, they were more than happy to help!... More

Was quite nice food. Decor is very bland and they're really hoping the view distracts you. Wouldn't be nice to get stuck up the back away from the windows because it's just black curtain and black poles. Wait staff were great and meals all came out in good time

We were a group of 3 and were seated by the window to enjoy the magnificent view of the ocean and arrived at 630 to take advantage of the light before sunset. We ordered the seafood platter with a special request for it to be for 3 people. From the top all the way to the bottom it was delicious.... More

Lovely meal and service, fantastic views. However very overpriced which makes it only a very special occasion venue. Shame as I'm sure people would go there more often if it wasn't so over the top with prices.

The Ocean Restaurant had changed hands since our last visit. There was a set menu which was very overpriced for what you got. The a la carte menu was the same food as the set menu, just a bit more on your plate. There was only one vegetarian option which was terribly disappointing. Called a vegetable terrine, it was a...

Us locals should keep this place to ourselves! The view and food easily beat more expensive places in Terrigal... I'd go just for the fig and date pudding with butterscotch sauce! Portions are generous, service was good and there's even a kids menu. I've been twice recently, the only downside is it can get a bit noisy if it's busy,... More

The view from the restaurant is breathtaking, The food is excellent and the service is exceptional. The prices are between mid range and fine dining and although the servings are not exceptionally large the quality makes up for it. I would highly recommend it to anyone especially for that special occasion. During summer I would not be tempted to sit... More

Have been to this restaurant numerous times- lovely! However, booked for Valentine's Day, were seated, only to be told no B.Y.O. on V.Day. Then asked to see another menu, as we were only given a set three course menu for $69 per person. We were told this was the ONLY menu. The waitresses said they had only been told THAT... More

A very relaxing atmosphere looking at the ocean as the full moon rose over the horizon. An excellent staff with nicely staged ordering and service timing. Good attention to presentation and service, with excellent food quality. The seafood platters are slightly expensive, but will not be disappoint. Overall GR8 experience

We booked for 6 pm dinner to take advantage of the views and drove from Copacabana which was a good 25 mins to try the seafood platter here. It was very good. Not padded out with chips and other cheap ""fillers" like they offer at many seafood restaurants. Just quality produce. There was a Moreton Bay bug halved, oysters natural,... More
