My husband and I have been here 2-3 times and each time it has been excellent. It is right on Pearl Beach in a lovely quaint old weatherboard building with world class food and service. Don't hesitate!

Pearl Beach was chosen for this celebration, ourselves, four daughters and four sons-in-law. It was a long weekend to remember, and our evening at Pearls was all we hoped for, We were earliest and had a warm welcome, the restaurant being as pretty as we'd remembered and delightfully quiet. However! Our noisy family and a very full restaurant meant a... More

Pearls on the Beach always delivers, the food is impeccable, the service excellent. It is easy to feel at home there, notwithstanding that unmistakable luxe touch. Couldn't recommend this more.

We are Sydney based so lucky in that Pearl Beach is so accessible to us. Fortunately we have managed to be able to spend a week or so in the area each year over the last 5 or 6 years and when we do we always look forward to a night at Pearls and it never fails to impress. The... More

I have lived at Palm Beach on and off for decades and this review follows a fifth visit to this iconic beach side restrauant. Book ahead and tell Pearls of your plans..... which for me follow this now familar script: Take the public ferry across the majestic Pittwater from the whalf at Palm Beach at 11am for destination Patonga Beach,...

Walked in unannounced after a swim at the beach. Received the same warm welcome as if we had turned up in a Rolls Royce. My partner and I chose two tasting plates each - zucchini fritters, scallops, bug tails and octopus. Each plate had its highlights, with the octopus being a standout with the morcilla and walnut crumble. Each dish... More

Table for 5 all enjoyed the dinner and service was very good. Just let down by the small portion sizes - we were still hungry and went home for a big dessert. Tried to pretty up the plates but really they need to make them decent sizes.

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.
