Coming home from the beach is always nice to pop in for a bite to eat. The food is nothing out of the ordinary but it is a joy to be able to sit and have some food and the service is ok too.

The food was very average for the cost. We are locals but have not eaten there for a while, and will not be going back anytime soon.

We were staying in Ettalong and caught the Ferry across. Hubby and I enjoyed a relaxing lunch at Barrenjoey House. Service was great, food was even better. My husband was itching for some fresh seafood, the Seafood plate did the trick (king prawns, sydney rock oysters, scallops, morton bay bugs, fresh flathead fillets lightly battered, chips). I had the Moroccan... More

Consistently good service, atmosphere and delicious food overlooking Pittwater. What could be better? Not much! A large airy room with a beachy Morroccan influence and open to the front with its inviting view is the perfect spot to while away a few hours on a sunny Friday afternoon. They have a great value 3 courses (all from the a la... More

A true waste of money, the meal was expensive and of very poor quality. We have been spoilt by our home location in the vineyards of Pokolbin and the experience of fine dining and casual cafes are amazing in true comparison. The whole experience was truly disappointing- the view though was lovely.

The food here is always great, have never been let down. We particularly enjoyed the garlic and parsley bread this visit. However some of the staff displayed a special knack of making us feel not welcome. Yes we had a three and a five year old with us, so I can understand a bit of apprehension. "Have you got a... More

Having dined at Barrenjoey House a few years ago, we booked with anticipation of another amazing experience. However it fell very short of our expectations. Its certainly shifted to a casual cafe and I honestly struggled to find anything that excited me on the menu. If your looking for more high end dining in Palm Beach this is not it.... More

This maybe a bit harsh, but the chicken breast I had was ok - no more. However, I have eaten there before and it is very good...and would return. The location and decor is fantastic, with the sun dropping in the west, and an indoor outdoor aspect. Very relaxed but very attentive service. No complaints here. My only comment is... More
