As a local, I have been here a few times with friends and family. The food is always very good but the service is extremely variable. Some times it's good, sometimes it's terrible. The view is nice but let's face it, two of the main features are a nearly defunct oil refinery and a sewage outfall... Gorgeous. Sadly while the food is nice this place is not as good as it would like to think. Good place to go if someone else is paying!

What a disappointment! Whilst we eat out on average twice a week all over Sydney, I have never felt compelled to write a review, especially an wag at ice one. They were so rude here that I simply want to spare others from such an unpleasant experience. Sadly this restaurant, which is located in a beautiful spot on the shores of Cronulla, does not "serve" the area well. The management here seem to have become greedy & overly confident. From the moment we arrived, even though we had a booking & were on time, they were abrupt. When it was politely suggested that they could be more hospitable, the owner said he didn't care because they were busy enough. I had heard this from family & friends prior to our visit but didn't heed their warnings. With so many restaurants to choose from in Cronulla itself & the wider Sydney region, I won't be bothering with this one ever again. Cronulla's "Sea Level", "Sommersault", "The Nun's Pool", "Grind" & "Nulla Nulla" offer friendlier service & better value for money all around.

What a shame, I recommended this place to some of our pregnant mums group to meet as the location is beautiful and we've had a great experience before. However, they were so inflexible. Most of the breakfasts come with poached eggs which pregnant women aren't advised to eat. The staff at the restaurant refused to exchange a poached egg, which came with the zucchini fritters for scrambled, even though other diners at our table were having scrambled eggs with a different choice. Disappointed! Not the place for pregnant women who require a bit of flexibility when they dine out to keep their baby safe.

Love this place for breakfast and lunch...nothing better on a sunny day...and any closer to the surf and you'd need your swimmers! Can't count the number of times I have been. Can tell you I was there within the last 10 days - normally a weekly visit. View and atmosphere just fantastic.

This place is very busy. Book if you can. We weren't in a hurry and wondered down there on the Monday Public Holiday. By that time the 9am breakfasts were finishing, we had to wait about 15 min and we got in just before 11am. Lovely setting right by the beach. It belongs to the Surf Club and the last building along the foreshore.
