“Inconsistent”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Been here twice and how different we're the visits just two days apart! First meal (barramundi) was superb! Second visit (sea perch) only ok to good. Service matched meals. Maybe the second meal was too close to Christmas craziness. So if you visit Coogee this is about the best there is here. But there are still question marks. My wife says I am being too kind.

“Attractive location, friendly staff, the food we ordered was inedible”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is one of the best locations in Coogee, with outdoor seating and a lovely view over the beach and sea. We were three adults with a baby and the staff treated us very kindly. Unfortunately the cod on a pea risotto (that we three ordered) was inedible: the cod was limp and tasteless and the pea risotto was very overcooked and so salty it was impossible to eat.

“Great location, good food, BYO”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner on a weeknight here with friends, we both had our toddlers with us.
Great location by the beach with a small outdoor seating area and large glass windows so you don't miss the view if your inside.
We all had a main meal, I had the duck which looked & tasted good.
They are BYO so we bought our own wine.
Service was good. The waiters were quick, efficient and attentive- which is what you need when dining with toddlers.

This was my second time dining at Ceviche. I had previously been there for a large function and had a great night. I would definitely go back to try some of their other dishes. Would also recommend booking ahead for weekends.

“Never a disappointment”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Firstly, this restaurant has a great location opposite the beach with patrons able to dine indoors/outdoors or even on the sidewalk.
The food is of a high standard and good quality ingredients. The menu is simple and reasonably priced. The set lunch menu of your choice is great value too. As a patron who has dined here on several occasions, it is the fillet of beef that draws me back here as it is always cooked perfectly.
Service is genuine and tentative and work well with the kitchen. I highly recommend this place especially in summertime as the atmosphere is quite buzzing.

“Great meal, lovely location”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Great set lunch, nice choice and a good wine to wash it down with. Highly recommend. A great location, just steps to the beach and it has a great little deck area outside
