The food was beautiful including all the vegetarian dishes. Selection of wine was also good. We tasted a selection of deserts which was perfect. Thank you for the lovely experience .

I generally avoid here as have had mostly bad service experiences over the years ...although the food can vary from average to great. Have visited twice in past month with friends, and each time service leaves a lot to be desired. The culprits are the older grey-haired man and the older skinny woman...I won't name them as the management knows... More

I dropped in for a beer in the bar. Waited ten minutes for the beer. Was told by the waitress that they were busy making coffee. I asked for my bill, $10.00 for schooner. About double what it should be. The waitress said it's restaurant pricing! I remarked that I was in the bar, not the "restaurant ". Will never... More

Booked outside table, given inside table. No discussion! Waited 45 minutes for our order to be taken. Table set with only half the guests having water glasses. Having waited ten minutes for water then had to wait another 5 to get glasses. And on it went. Service wasn't the worst ever but was so lacking that I won't be going... More

The staff are the rudest we have ever come across so for that reason we would never go there again and tell everyone to avoid it.

Stella Blu has been around for years & years - they must be doing something right! This Italian Restaurant offers a variety of choice of Italian entree's, pastas and mains. There is a buzzy atmosphere and it's usually full of locals. The location opposite the beach in Dee Why is good. The new bar food menu is also very tasty,... More

This was a return visit and they have maintained quality meals, with service and a smile. Suggest you book for busy weekend periods. Check out the weather forecast before you decide if you want to sit outside or indoors. Leave room to share a fruit platter after mains. Will be back.

Not sure how many times I've been there - dinner, lunch, breakfast, coffee or a drink. Good honest Italian food, nothing terribly fancy but it is beautifully presented, generous portions and reasonably priced. Definitely the best "restaurant" on Dee Why beach. We went on Saturday night and the it full, yet the service was attentive without being overbearing. Will keep... More

My favourite spot on the beaches... not sure how people complain. The service is amazing and the food is great - always above and beyond plus a perfect spot across from the beach and BYO wine which I love as I work for a wine company and I'm super particular with my wine.... I've been a few times now and... More

My husband and I thought we'd try this place for the first time. A busy Saturday night, we hadn't booked but we were found a table by a very welcoming member of staff. We were served and attended to promptly. Food arrived hot and freshly made. All was flavoursome, homemade and good sized portions. The restaurant was a bit noisy,... More
