The Joker and Thief Terrigal
Fabric Architecture with interiors and styling by Stewart & Highfield.
While the name is a homage to Bob Dylan, our interior is Mad Men meets INXS – Mid Century Modern with a nod to Art Deco and a luxe Rock n Roll edge. Dusty pink walls with timber panelling contrast deep hues, velvet upholstery, brass details and marble tabletops. The Joker and Thief is pure escapism. Once you reach the top of the staircase, you will enter a world of unpretentious decadence.
Located on a prominent beachside strip, Balmy ocean breezes come through the windows as cocktails flow. Our venue transforms from a bright and airy lunch spot to a moody, plush night-time restaurant bar.

Amazing service, great location with a menu to suit all. Food was delicious.
Food very ordinary, we were sat in a corner with insufficient lighting and expensive for the food we ordered
Delicious yummy cocktails. Food overrated and over priced.
Nice atmosphere and view from the window seat.
Really nice spot the only negative was that it is hard to get parking.
Great spot, great service, amazing margaritas! Food was delicious!
Staff were great, nice spot overlooking the water, but took a while for food to arrive and was very mediocre.
Nice atmosphere and menu. The entrance has a lot of stairs which my 80 year old mother struggled up, only to find there was a lift she could have used. Neither staff member at the door, where we checked in, let us know. Anyway, besides that, the evening was great.
Great location with views of the beach and surrounds. Great interior style and colour palette. Moore’s gin well stocked too
Outstanding food (gnocchi was outrageous) and view. Great vibe.
Really bad burgers. My sister’s tap cider was flat. Food was cold when it came out.
Beautiful food and great staff .. we will be back
Great place for a delicious meal with views of the beach. Our table was by the window. We had a great breeze blowing in as we enjoyed the food, the view of the beach and watched the people go by. Staff were genuine, friendly and helpful. Food is fresh, beautifully presented and servings were generous. They didn't skimp on the alcohol either in my whiskey sour. It was a good one :-)
Great location and amazing drinks! Would return again and again
Very noisy. One of us chose the tuna but was not told it was raw as I had asked about it’s description by the waitress. Had to send it back before eating and choose another dish.
The food was great but the meals are quite small.
Chef preordered m prepared a meal that met my dietary needs and I was really appreciative.
The ricotta gnocchi was sensational. And the cocktails delicious.
Some entrees were nice, chicken burger was poor, chips too salty, cocktails nice
The most amazing food!! The view was gorgeous as well. You have to try the ricotta pan fried gnocchi!!
Fantastic night out , fabulous food and service. The staff are very attentive. Awesome vibe !
Amazing food and great view over the beach. Would visit again.
My daughters 21st
We celebrated NYE at Joker and Theif..
From the food to the atmosphere, everything was perfect. The staff were outstanding.. Such a great venue.
Thank you so much!!
Great place to dine! Food was delicious! Nice views and beautiful cocktails.
Excellent service, very friendly staff, really enjoyed the food and drinks
Loved the food and drinks!
The only complaints I have is that we booked for low table as we all just have had babies and bad backs and we were put on a high table.
Also it was pretty loud. Other then that we have the best time and the food was amazing!
We sat at our table for 25-30 minutes before being served. As we sat down they asked for our drink order which we haven’t even had time to decide then got completely forgotten about. We were considering just leaving and going somewhere else. They might need more staff during the silly season.
We had a great time, the food was amazing! Service was wonderful
Good fun night, glad we got in before the restrictions came back in
Food was well presented and delicious. I will definitely go back.
Fantastic as usual. The staff are always very attentive.
Although the covid restrictions are reassuringly abided by at Joker, there is in no way enough staff for the table service! It was very difficult to get attention and place orders.
The food and cocktails when we did get them were delicious!
Fabulous as usual Great atmosphere. Especially love the live music.
Had such a great time. Good vibes. Food was amazing. Cocktails were perfection!
The area was very loud, chips were so salty you could eat them. Won't be going back. What a mistake going there a waste of money.
Food and cocktails were great, however service was terrible we had staff ignoring us and more interested in talking between themselves than serving. Cocktails took forever to be made and arrive.
Great place! Food and cocktails were delicious and the atmosphere was awesome. Loved the QR code menu, so easy to use!
Absolutely love joker and the thief! The food, the drinks, the staff, the vibe - it’s our new favourite go to!
Recommend... nice place to have dinner... good service and food
Great place for a drink and dinner. Went as part of a couple, and shared starters and cocktails. The staff were absolutely excellent, and the food and drinks were delicious. Best place in Terrigal for a drink.
