Jonah's, Whale Beach
Ranked #1 of 2 Whale Beach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2017

I have been to Jonah's a few times and it has always been a beautiful, elegant meal with attentive, friendly staff and a beautiful selection of food. The restaurant sits high on the headland between palm Beach and Whale Beach with majestic views out across the ocean. When we were there you could see the whale heading up the coast. Well recommended but expensive.

Room Tip: Get an easterly view out to sea.

I took my family to Jonahs for lunch last weekend - the first time I have eaten at this long established business. We had a window table to take in the spectacular northern beaches view. We also had a great meal provided by attentive well credentialed service providers. The wine list is the biggest I have ever seen full of wine varieties from around the world at prices to suit most wallets.

All up its was a very enjoyable afternoon and I look forward to going back soon. I will definitely consider this as a location to take guests from outside of the city as it shows off the best we have in Sydney

Overall experience - Magical! We had some overseas guests, an affluent French couple based in Milan, Italy recently visiting us in Sydney! It takes a lot to impress these guys and they have visited most of the 3 hatted restaurants in Sydney. And impress them we did with a lunch at Jonah's! Everything from the stunning views, impeccable set-up, flawless service, extensive & award winning wine list and the most important - absolutely delicious food!
It would be hard to pick a favourite as the very thing was so good - the Grilled Atlantic Scallops, the Tagliatelle with the Moreton Bay bugs, the Fried Zucchini flowers stuffed with Prawns! The amuse bouchée was a subtle seafood bisque. 3 of us opted for the main special, a pan fried snapper some fennel and mustard. Lip smacking!
Another surprise, with the compliments of the chef - a pumpkin ice cream with a hint of Chilli! I sincerely hope this is added to their main menu in the near future!
We shared 2 desserts among us 4 a passionfruit soufflé and a Dark chocolate and Hazelnut Gateau.
A walk around their terrace followed by tea/coffee and some complimentary pralines.
An afternoon well spent catching up with friends over good food and stunning views.
Well done guys - Mohan Deheragoda and the team! Special thanks to Sarah & Anton! Keep it up!

We had a wonderful two night stay at Jonah's. The location is spectacular, with
amazing views from the dining areas and the rooms. All of of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Luggage assistance, binoculars to view the passing whales, sightseeing advice to the nearby Bible Gardens (which are a must see), transfers to the waterfront for our sailing activity, a special table set up for breakfast, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was superb and the pastries were exceptional. Parking was easy and the room was comfortable. We had an enjoyable dinner there both nights. Jonah's is certainly on our list to revisit.

From the moment we arrived at the Sydney Seaplanes terminal, we knew it was going to be a special weekend. The staff and pilot were very friendly. We arrived to be greeted by Sage who looked after us very well. The whole weekend was nothing short of incredible. The food, service, room and not to mention the view surpassed our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend Jonah's to anyone. We usually never go back to the same hotel twice but we will definitely be going back to Jonah's. Perfect weather, perfect service. Truly breathtaking. Brian & Marie

Room Tip: Our room was perfect as I imagine any room would be so no extra tip!
