Too noisy to talk. The food was served family style and while good, you didnt know what else was coming, so you could pace yourself. For a business gathering, we could not really communicate for tje noise level

Booked for dinner. Very crowded and very noisy. But very good food. Would return. Being right in Coogee beach be prepared to look for parking even though there is a car park opposite it’s a busy spot. Enjoy!

We stopped here for dinner as it was the first restaurant we came across after walking from Bondi beach. It looked promising and didn’t fail our expectations. Every thing we ordered was delicious!

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity

Because they must assume all the trendy people are too busy staring at their phones and don't need to actually talk to each other.

When I was there the music wasn't obtrusive, but it surely can't be as bad as the relentless noise at the SCG for the Big Bash.
