Another restaurant gone

Terrigal has been hit hard with the loss in the past few weeks of Flair, Letterbox and Lamiche - all good restaurants and favourites of locals. While Lamiche has been replaced by BistRowe which is offering a different alternative, the others have yet to be replaced. Tragic to see Letterbox go so... read more

I always enjoy my meal at this modern creative Australian restaurant. The decor is pleasant and makes a good night out. Sometimes the noise from the kitchen can be a bit loud.

Average out of date kind of mediocre, building and location h's potential to be a great eating house with a bar.

We recently booked into this restaurant as a table of 4 ladies. On arrival at 7pm on a chilly Saturday night we were greeted and then informed that they could not find our booking. When the waiter started to apologise and tell us that we would have to find somewhere else to go, he found our name in the book.... More

I visited this restaurant with a number of friends. The food options were very good, we all had entrees and mains, no one complained about their meals, I can say the shashimi followed by the duck were excellent. The service was excellent and the restaurant allows BYO at $5 per bottle. I would return when next in terrigal.

My friends and I recently visited this restaurant for a special occasion birthday dinner. We were very excited about coming to this restaurant as we heard it was supposed to be amazing. The food was really nice although it was perhaps a little overpriced for what is served. I paid $22 (or $23) for the pork belly and scallops entrée... More

Have been here many times but feel the current menu is probably better than it has been for years. Todd has delivered a menu with both substance and quality - good team and service.

It has been ages since our last visit and it is still as good as ever. Service was flawless and our Waiter was friendly and really looked after us. Salmon sashimi was beautiful and the duck was just as good. The dessert platter was to die for. Thanks guys - we will be back.

Tired and dated. Food was nice but a bit boring. Serving size of sashimi salmon entree extremely disappointing. I have been to the letterbox around 6 times over 5-6 years. The last two visits have been disappointing. I won't go back

Can be hit and miss and when the waitress said the head chef was out that night and the apprentice was cooking, we hesitated. But no, we were told the sous chef was in charge and he would make sure they delivered. Jason is quite a find, full of personality and proud of his food - he delivered well and... More
