Simply stunning for an outdoor wedding by the beach.....

My husband and I decided that we wanted to have an outdoor summer wedding, and Jonah's was the first and last place that came to mind! We contacted Emily, the Events Coordinator and started planning from there. We got married on the lawn on 13th February 2015. We were blessing with perfect sunny... read more

I was slightly worried when my friend booked Jonah's for lunch on a recent visit to Sydney. In my experience, a great location often means poor food. I need not have worried! The lunch was a total delight- a great setting, delicious food and very attentive service, We had a table by the window looking down over the spectacular Whale... More

We spent a weekend at Jonah's for the wedding of our close friends. The food (dinner and breakfast) was first class. Immaculately presented, fresh and delicious. The cocktails were of a similar standard. Oh...and there is the view that makes you feel like you are not in Australia...

We had heard great things about Jonah's and were really excited to celebrate my birthday over lunch there. Unfortunately the service was so incredibly bad that it ruined the entire meal. We were left outside on the balcony with a drinks menu and forgotten, and then when they remembered to come and take our order they took forever making the... More

I ate at this restaurant with my family on my birthday and have been there many times ever since. The service is great, the food is amazing and the setup of the tables, the outside bar area and the inside bar area by the fire and absolutely amazing.

We have been to Jonah's before - a bit of an icon on the Northern Beaches and well deserved! Yes, it's a great location, very cool atmosphere and the views are terrific but that's not all. Today we went for my mother's 87th birthday. The weather was perfect - cocktails first on the balcony - then in to lunch which... More

We came here for lunch on a beautiful summer day and the food and the views were just superb. The staff were very professional and friendly, we had a table by the window and ordered the seafood platter. Everything was cooked to perfection. After we had finished our meal we sat outside soaking up the views on the adirondack chairs... More

Firstly, the view at Jonah's is always amazing. We've been to Jonah's once before for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, however on this occasion we left feeling very disappointed with the service we received. My partner and I had brought my Mum and Sister to Jonah's for breakfast as a Christmas treat whilst they were visiting from overseas. We were... More

This is one of those "thank God I live in Sydney" restaurants. Simply spectacular in every way. The moment you walk in the door you are greeted with one of the most amazing views - if you are lucky, you may just see a whale or two whilst you are dining. This is a must visit with guests from Sydney.... More
