Left feeling...hungry. Modern food but a menu that offers fpod that isnt on the plate. Fancy small meals with a hefty price leaves you hungry. Quality is high but occassionally disappoints. Like the sourdough. One side seemed like it was cut a day or two...More

Bumped in to some friends whilst doing the beach walk from Dixon Park Beach to Merewether Beach and decided to have an impromptu breakfast at the Surfhouse. Coffees, corncakes and that view over the ocean; what a great start to the day. And friendly staff.

I would only rate the selection of food options as ordinary and the food itself only average. Certainly the view is great but with such a great setting the restaurant kitchen could lift its game.

Strolled down here for the view, stayed for the atmosphere, and was pleasantly surprise by the delicious meal. We had the surfhouse burger; a beef burger with smoked cheese and double bacon, and the buttermilk fried chicken burger. Both were cooked perfectly, very fresh, juicy,...More

The venue is great and service was good. The disappointment was value for money. I ordered the pork fillet with crackling and for the money expected a full meal. If you’re hungry then you’re forced towards the sides and the meal cost is upper level....More

They are child friendly, I took my three little grand children with me. I have to say they are well behaved and accustomed to eating out. I am always aware of other dinners where children are concerned.
