Fodor's Review

Opened on the site of the Merewether Beach's original surfhouse (a lifeguard station), this stunning three-story venue has fantastic ocean views from all three of its eateries. The ground floor café, pizza bar, and kiosk—the latter serves takeout—are steps from the beach, while the top-level restaurant has expansive panoramas and is open for lunch and dinner. You might begin with the local Port Stephens oysters with shallot vinegar before moving on to pan-roasted trout or roast–butternut squash ravioli for main. Desserts include the mouthwatering gingerbread and rhubarb pudding. The café is open for breakfast and lunch daily, offering burgers, salads, and panini, while the takeout kiosk is weekends only.
