Rudest woman on earth. Had lunch there and then went in to use the bathroom and the owner wouldn't even let me use it after I had just eaten lunch there! Absolutely ridiculous and extremely rude woman, I'm totally gobsmacked by lack of hospitality and manners. Will never ever return there again and will certainly spread the word. A few... More

This cafe is in a superb location right on the water at Terrigal. You can sit and enjoy the vista, might even see a dolphin or whale and certainly watch the pelicans gather as the fishing boats come in. The decor is bright and beachy and has a homey feel, as you look out of the big picture windows or... More

After looking at the available choices my wife chose Haven Seafood Takeaway the value looked good and the location had plenty to offer. One lone man was trying to cope with the orders so a small wait wasn't unrealistic. aaaaahhhhhhh the seagulls here are amongst the best fed anywhere in the world as person after person was feeding them the...

A fantastic view, beautiful spot. Not a huge range to choose from. A little pricey for what you receive. I am a water drinker so couldn't comment on the price of Alcohol, but believe very expensive. Have been for coffee & cake with friends as well. It has a take away cooked seafood adjoined to it, owned by same people.... More

A beautiful lunch today with the hot and cold sea food platter and a fantastic view. The staff were friendly and helpful and the chef let us know upon request that we could modify the platter next time we went - just let him know. The asian prawns, marinated mussels and tender squid all defintley worth a try.

This is a very lovely cafe. My partner and I were greeted by friendly staff who were happy to take our order although we arrived just on closing time. We decided to eat our fish & chips outside while looking out watching the sunset over the haven. It was absolutely beautiful!! We are staying staying in Terrigal for the weekend... More

We have been here a number of times, but will probably never return. The food is ok, the view is amazing, but the staff is wanting! And what really sealed the deal for us, was the corkage! At $4 per person, the corkage cost us (5 people) more than the bottle of wine my father in law had taken along!... More

Like other reviewers we waited too long for our family breakfast. Our breakfast came in dribs and drabs with w 15 min interval between the first and last meal arriving at the table. My 5 year old was starving and I went to the counter to ask where his meal was. The junior waitresses clearly knew what I was going... More

This is the third time I've had a meal here and once again it was a great experience. The restaurant was pretty quiet on a weekday, and we lingered over the wonderful view. The small servings of salt and pepper squid and salmon salad were just a perfect size for lunch, though the hearty eaters enjoyed their large servings too.... More

After reading reviews, we were a bit nervous about going but decided to give it a try anyway. We had a lovely lunch with good service...yes, it was a Monday and cafe wasn't very busy so this may have worked in our favour. Staff were friendly & helpful. Food was lovely. View was great. Would go back again.
