My wife and I are regulars here 3 or 4 mornings a week, for morning coffees and often a bite of breakfast, and you can't beat sitting there in the morning sunshine enjoying the view out over the surf while sipping on a good Will & Co blend coffee. Staff are friendly and efficient if not sometimes struggling with morning... More

Went to the bar section for lunch, was a great outlook, a bit windy but staff pulled the clear blinds down which helped. Not a lot of menu options, no real consideration for special diets, eg gf, df... ended up with burgers which were good... important to note there is also inside dining which has a seperate menu which we...

Dined with a family group on a busy Saturday night and as a number of other reviews have stated..... marvellous view particularly looking out over the beach with waves crashing in. A comprehensive menu and good wine selection although the second establishment we visited over the Easter period where some wines were unavailable ..... if they are not available take... More

Very disappointed experience. Meals were quite average for the cost paid. The service was absolutely terrible. No wine service. No top up of water. 20 minutes to wait for coffee. While the location is superb it was not value for money!!!!

Had a great day and time . Food was good and quick and the drinks were quiet well priced . If there was any con was that the rail is at a height that really messes with the view when sitting but it was not something that bothers me to much . Will be back on my next return

We went for a long walk along Merewether beach and then had a Pizza at the cafe at the Surfhouse. Lots of families and relaxed atmosphere. It provides fantastic views and you can just enjoy a drink and the hustle and bustle.

Good food with an unbeatable view in an excellent location. We have eaten here multiple times and have always been happy! Great for a family lunch, or for a date night or meal with friends. There is also a bar for drinks and a pizza shop down stairs to order a pizza to eat by the water.

Whilst the location is fantastic, you pay for it in the low food quality and premium pricing. The beef burger was a thin, budget meat patty of the cardboard-tasting variety and the chicken burger also lacked flavor. Both were expensive and took a long time to come to the table. Dog-friendly which we didn't mind but could be unpleasant for... More
