We were looking forward to visiting Jonahs but were so disappointed. The venue is great but the service was average. We had to follow up on drink and food orders even though the restaurant wasn't full and there were plenty of staff. Won't be going back

As regulars to Jonahs we are never disappointed in the food - it's innovative fresh and really interesting- what let's this place down is the stuffy service that comes with an aloof Last nite was no different - had to find staff to order a drink on the balcony and then the table service was just "average " with a...

Arrived too late for Boxing Day lunch and found the restaurant full. However there were comfortable lounges on the terrace overlooking the beach. An excellent snack menu with attentive service. We loved it very casual and great views.

A short drive from Sydney up the Northern beaches, Jonah's sits high above the cliffs overlooking Whale Beach. Some restaurants will trade off the views, but Jonah's excels in the food department. They offer 2,3 or 4 course options, with or without matching wines. We shared a variety of starters, including burrata with peaches and the zucchini flowers, and all...

A pre Xmas lunch with friends who had never been to Jonahs before was a treat. Best table in the house - right hand side in the window. Magic views across the ocean. We were greeted quickly and taken to our seat. Pre lunch drinks - champagne and gin and tonic) were ordered. Fresh made sourdough bread or a dark...

Wow! What a view! I was fortunate to have a work conference here and felt very spoilt. The service is faultless; the food delicious; the room beautiful; but it all comes down to that view. Perched high on the hill, the view from every point (that I was at) is stunning. Even in my room I had the ‘loo with...

My husband and I stayed one night at Jonahs recently to celebrate a milestone birthday. From the moment we arrived until we left we could not fault anything, it was an amazing experience. The champagne on arrival sipped on the patio overlooking Whale Beach to the beautiful room with the same breathtaking view to the lovely restaurant everything was perfect....

Legendary Jonahs, the only Sydney member of the luxury Relais & Chateaux brand. My wife and I decided to have a short 2-night retreat before the Xmas onslaught and all started well with the lovely Lucy greeting us warmly and professionally and walking us through the property with our 'complimentary' cold glass of Bollinger. The rooms however, whilst functional lack...

We stayed 2 nights here during our holidays. I travel alot for business and usually stay in 5 star hotels around the world, so I'd like to think I know what to expect from a 680AUD/night room, but value for money here is probably the worst I have experienced and thats really my issue with this place because had this...

GMJonahs, General Manager at Jonah's, Whale Beach, responded to this review

Dear Skytraveller86 I refer to your review titled “A massive disappointment” and note your global perspective. Jonah’s has been in operation for 88 years and receives enormous amounts of repeat business. It’s pleasing to see that the majority of feedback we receive is positive. We clearly did not live up to your expectations. With respect to your statement in relation...

Lovely views round off a beautiful place for an eventsuch as a wedding. Our day up there was fantastic and the team were very attentive. Service was top notch and polite. Only thing to take note of is not a lot of parking up there if you are going for a big event so keep it in mind! Also they...
