Rare to find a restaurant that has some of the most amazing beach views, table service, really good food and is value for money. Staff were super accommodating. We will be back.

My salmon was delicious. The waitress was friendly, helpful and unobtrusive.

The view is spectacular. We took a walk on the beach. What's not to like.

Excellent location above Avalon beach and nice interiors with comfy seating and great views! Only issue was good service was slow and a little cold when it arrived. Thanks

I ordered a seafood plate. The plate was so small that all ingredients were on top of each other, making it difficult to cut and making the french fries soggy. The ingredients were not bad but lost their appeal because of the presentation.

The service was not particularly friendly nor efficient.

Nice spot celebrate a birthday lunch.
My Soy marinated steak was great.. But Hubby did not really enjoy his fishermans basket. The fish flavour was very strong and distasteful, the crumbed prawns were over fried. It was a bit disappoointing. The salted caramel mousse - Delicious!
A magic spot with friendly efficient service.
Million dollar Views Amazing!!!

Unprofessional and unfriendly service.

The waitress favored the costumer coming right after us in terms of table location (she did not allow us (foreigners, Europeans) to choose but she allowed the next group (white Australian) to choose).

The waitress acted passive aggressive during our entire meal. Terrible service.

Our table was against the front window - without a doubt the most awesome view of any restaurant we have been to. The food and service were great! We enjoy it every time and love treating our visitors at your restaurant. Stunning!!!

We had an absolutely lovely dinner here. Service was excellent, the food delicious (and very reasonably priced) and some very good wine. The standout was the view, which would be hard to beat. We were visiting Avalon and I decided to risk the mixed reviews so that we could dine on the beach. The restaurant was much quieter than I expected and deserves to be much busier based on our experience there. I'm vegetarian and found the soba noodles very tasty. My partner loved his steak.

Pros. There isn't a better location in Avalon to bring overseas visitors or appreciate where we live. Watch surfers from only a few meters away whilst enjoying good food at a fair price. Cons. Wait staff are poorly trained or perhaps just inattentive. This place is begging for the 'razors edge' and could be made an icon of the Northern Beaches. One day I'm sure it will. Was good enough to come back, but not enough to rave about. Nigel V (not the person who booked)

Great location, let down a by casual service. Only cafe-quality food, needed crisper chips & more zingy dishes, and some more grilled (not battered) seafood.

Located right on Avalon Beach, the sweeping views of the beach make this a perfect lunch spot in any weather. The food's pretty good too.

After a hike up some stairs, you are greeted by an expansive ocean and beach view. Perhaps dining downstairs alfresco style could be a future option. The staff are friendly and there is a casual air to the place. Personal presentation could be lifted a notch or two. I felt well looked after but my non drinking driver needed some attention in the form of mocktails and non alcoholic punches. We loved the day out and will return hopefully for oysters! Great value for the price and location.

We ordered the hot and cold seafood platter for two, while the seafood was fresh the ratio of chips to seafood was disproportionately high occupying most of the plate.

The food and service were great, sadly the restaurant only had one other table occupied for dinner, which is a shame. I’d really recommend this for a family meal or dinner with friends.

Great food fresh and tasteful, with some great older made modern entree dishes such as croquettes which I had two serves of seafood and fish was as always fresh and our out of town guests enjoyed it too!

2 x crumbed John Dory. Tiny thin fillets overcooked dry and tasteless. Tough to get through the 'crumbed' - Apparently chicken salted chips - which, had we known would have declined.

2 x grilled perch also overcooked & tasteless. Fish served on top of chips so soggy, oily chips. Coleslaw ok but didn't like the dressing.

No BYO - good restaurants accept byo & charge a reasonable corkage to cover profit loss.

Thank you for a wonderful lunch on Anzac day, the food was excellent, the view amazing and all of the staff very friendly. We will definitely return. I really loved the salad with the Edamame beans. I was wondering do you have a supplier that sells them fresh, I can only find frozen beans and I would love to include these beans in my salads at home, and would love to find a place to purchase the beans fresh if that is possible. Thank You

Our food and service was excellent. I would have to say the best salt and pepper squid... succulent and plenty of it. The cauliflower croquettes were nice and crunch on the outside and creamy smooth on the inside. Tempura fish and salad yummy too. Definitely come again.

Have lived in Bilgola P now for 3 years and thought we would finally try the Beach House. Was a wonderful night with amazing service and very tasty food. Staff were very attentive and friendly and the all round vibe in the place was joyful. A wedding next door gave us the bonus of some great music and happy sounds. Sitting by the window with the sea breeze and lights on the ocean was a great setting for a birthday dinner catch up.
Tried the Buddha bowl & corn on the cob - both delicious. The corn was scrumptious! Partner tried one of the burgers which they were very happy with. A nice mix of food options and seeing the steak arrive at the next table made me a little envious - looked like it was cooked to perfection! All around a great night, with good food and happy feels.

Stunning view, you’re sitting above the beach! Enough open windows to feel outside without being too hot, cold or windy.
Food was delicious, with healthy options as well. Service very accommodating and friendly.
A little pricey, but to be expected for excellent food, service with a stunning view!
We’ll definitely be back.
