We went on a busy Saturday evening and it was quite noisy and service slow. Staff were pleasant and restaurant has nice tables and decor. Our food was good, with some excellent entrees. Worth a try on a quitter evening.

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
