A great setting

The restaurant is above the surf lifesaving club and therefore in a great spot. There is a large outside deck and they have live music.

I had the seafood chowder - excellent! My wife had the pasta and my son ordered the parmy. The atmosphere was great as the huge glass windows offer you a view of the beach and ocean. The service was great and prompt.

Simons is a lovely spot. Good food and attentive staff, along with a magnificent view across Lady Bay. The only downside is their new, mysogynist advertising campaign. I would have thought families coming up from the beach would be a mainstay for Simons so I'm not sure why they've gone with the bikini clad, submissive woman billboards. Very off putting.

We sat inside at one of the tables with a spectacular view out over the bay. The coffee was good and the service was friendly and pleasant. At $20 for 3 coffees and 1 scone it's not too pricey either. Definitely a good option for coffee on the foreshore.

Situated on the beach, this restaurant has a lovely view and ambience to it. The food is delicious and the staff were very friendly. After dinner on the first night here, we came back the next day for a very tasty breakfast as well

We stopped here and had a cold beer after walking along the beach and walking track. The beer was very cold and the food menu looed good. The deck looks out over the surf beach. The staff are very friendly.

We went to Simons recently to celebrate a friends engagement party. The finger food was alright but majority just a selection of deep fried nibbles. Our friend asked 3x for a gluten free option but nothing was followed through. So we ended up ordering off the menu. The burger sliders were delicious as were the chips. The venue is lovely... More
