We had a Mediterranean menu to share but not cheap in any sense. The drinks are very expensive. The cheapest glass of red wine is $13, Glass of spirit is $10.50. Absolute rip-off. Also, they have a surcharge on all credit cards which is unheard...More

As locals we have visited many times, both downstairs and upstairs. To begin the location is superb, can't get any closer to the beach and the scale of the venue allows for stunning views through the endless windows and doors. For families downstairs is great...More

Enjoyed a couple of Sunday afternoon drinks during our stay in Coogee, the upstairs balcony is the perfect spot to take in the scenery. Great cocktail and wine lists as well as many craft beers on tap!

Visited with my family on Saturday lunchtime and because we wanted to sit upstairs in the sun on the balcony the food menu was quite limited and less 'pub grub' than we would have liked. What we had was very nice though and reasonably priced....More

I've gone to the rooftop off and on - great place for views and drinks. This time I went with a couple of families who go regularly as the ground floor allows kids and has a big section of games and playthings at the back...More

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.
