I was there for a work Christmas party with about 80 people and the service and the food was great. This is a great place for any meal and I will visit again for dinner!

My girlfriend and I were hoping for a nice dinner by a decent view to end a long week. I ordered a bruschetta for an entre, it was pretty much tomato on toast. The tomato was cut up like you would put it on a sandwich and had the tiniest bit of feta you couldn't taste it. Tasted how it... More

The view from Surf House on this stunning 1st day of summer was something to behold and my Melbourne-based visitors did not seem to be missing their 11° down south. I hadn't eaten at Surf House since it opened a few years ago as that experience was terrible with an exorbitant bill to add salt to the wounds. However, on... More

Jam-packed with well-dressed 30-somethings, this place had a great vibe. Scoring a table and a drink at the 6-deep bar is a challenge (at least on a Friday night), but it's worth it for the great views along the coast (particularly with the sun setting). Cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat here.

We have been here in the past and enjoyed the atmosphere along with the beautiful views however yesterday we went there to have lunch and found the restaurant is closed on Mondays and only a handful of people there. There was very loud music playing which prevented any conversation without shouting. If we had had 2 phones we could have... More

Very busy, make sure you book. Noisy, but if you can get a table around the nth corner, it's much better. Food is delicious, service is fabulous. Great lunch spot.

This restaurant has an amazing view on the pacific ocean which is the main value of the place. If you book a table in advance, you should ask a table with view. The food is really good (Salmon) and the staff is friendly. However, be aware, it is not a cheap restaurant. It was globally a good experience.

Thought we would have breakfast by the beach and the Mereweather Surfclub was spot on. Lucked upon a table outside overlooking the surf. We ordered, and our meals were delivered quickly, looked and tasted amazing. If you get the chance stop - do so, for a very scenic delicious and well priced breakfast. Would go back for dinner upstairs if... More

We had a coffee at the down stairs cafe. Was a windy afternoon and too windy to sit outside. Inside are plenty of tables and you can still see the surf. The music was too loud for a cafe otherwise a nice spot.

Visited for drinks and bar snacks this week. Food was excellent - chips were quite amazing and the pork soft tacos were fabulous. The position of the Surfhouse is great with a really special view. Service was good too - just a lovely place to share a drink
