This place is beautiful. It's a quaint little cafe with some quirky little furnishings & an amazing view over the water but that's where it ends. The place was busy but with 5 staff running around I couldn't see why the tables were all so dirty. After lining up to place our order & having to pay in advance we... More

Enjoyed a relaxing coffee in great mugs on the lovely deck. Loved the fruit loaf with cheese and honey. Great views of terrigal beach and haven. Lovely!

I had organised a get-together for friends and was so disappointed. It will be an experience I will never repeat. For starters, the prices they charge should warrant table service but one must order and pay for food at the counter. We waited ages for food to arrive and it was the worst meal we have all had in a... More

My partner and I spent $27.00 at this small cafe on the water at Terrigal. We just wanted something easy and tasty... I ordered 10 Fish Cocktails and a Large Chips... we got our food and found a beautiful spot to sit right next to the Boat Ramp! We forgot to add salt on our food from the complimentary condiments...

Please close down so someone professional can take over. We are consitently disappointed by everything (except the view) in this place. We only go back in the vague hope that its changed management. Its just insulting to the industry and innocent customers paying money for crap everything. Give us locals a break and our boathouse back.

First time I've eaten at The Beach Haven, Terrigal. Will not be repeating the experience. I had the fish and chips. Very mediocre, undercooked chips that were almost cold. A wait of 45minutes, and very overpriced. Bad service due to lack of staff. Apparently there was a shortage of menus. Very tattered pages on a clipboard! So many other cafes... More

The location of this cafe is superb, but unfortunately this is not matched by good food and service. We took interstate visitors here for breakfast today. We made a reservation in advance. The wait staff were friendly, but totally inexperienced and untrained. The table was not cleared from previous diners when we arrived. Our food took 45 minutes to be... More

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...
