Fodor's Expert Review Merewether Surfhouse
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, and gelato bar 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 roasted butternut squash ravioli for main. Desserts include the mouthwatering gingerbread and rhubarb pudding. The café is open for all-day breakfast and lunch daily, offering burgers and salads.
