Last Saturday night, my girlfriend's son celebrated his 18th birthday at Jellyfish, perfectly located across the Esplanade from North Steyne Beach. A party of over forty thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The service was very friendly and attentive. All our requests for decorations and table settings were accommodated by Nicole and her excellent team. The food and atmosphere were marvellous. Thank... More

Have been here a few times but have been consistently disappointed and so won't be back. For some reason it seems busy but the coffee is pretty average, the service is slack, and the food is nothing special. I think these guys used to be good but have dropped their standards a bit - seems like there is no one... More

Completely based on their service, I won't be going back to Jellyfish. I've been in a few times for takeaway coffee, and although the coffee is completely average, if the service had been good I would have continued going purely for the convenience of its beach location. However, my latest visit confirmed that I would rather forgo my beach side... More

Lovely (although busy!) for breakfast brunch lunch dinner and take away coffees. Staff are super friendly - relaxed atmosphere - fab location and a definite winner of the three restaurants in a row on that strip.

Eggs Benedict on the front with a great view. Not a traditional muffin but toast - ok. Eggs needed a touch more cooking and the bacon way too fatty. Sauce was fine, portion size good and service great. Large orange juice in a mug type of glass. Flat white coffee was good. Location is great and it looks like it... More

Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Jellyfish. Service was friendly, coffee good and food delicious. I had the pancakes and they came with a wonderful pistachio butter. My friend had the breakfast BLT and said it was delicious. The place was quite busy on a Thursday. Not sure if this is all the time in the summer as a surfing competition... More
