I dined here early one evening & had a splendid pizza & glass of cider. The staff were friendly & service was prompt. As a solo traveller I like to read as I dine, this was not easy as the music was quite loud & the strange acoustics caused the human noise to carry!

Took advantage of the $10 pizza special.Plenty of choices. Good quick service and friendly staff. Watch out for the 1.5% surcharge on all card payments. Some cocktails were on special and looked very nice. Outside dining is available to take advantage of the view over Coogee beach.

We were staying in the hotel over Christmas and the New Year and ate several times in Oceans. Food was reasonable and there were different offers on most evenings

If you want somewhere not crazy busy and a without the pretentious side (pavilion) or teaming with backpackers (CBH) then this is the perfect spot. I have been here a number of times over the Christmas break with my mum from overseas and she loved it. We had food on all occasions and it was really really good. The weeknight... More

My family usually meets about once a month for dinner. As there are 17 of us, I booked us a table for Thursday night at Ocean's Dining, one month in advance. I rang the day before the booking, and they had no idea we were coming. When we got there, no matter which staff member you walk up to, whether... More

Booked a table here and it took 10 mins to be seated. Staff didn't seem to be very organised. Cocktail then took 15 mins to arrive. Gave up on food when we saw the size of the $10 dollar pizzas on offer. When paying the bill, the beer we had was not one included in the Happy Hour prices.... seems... More

I came here around 5 times over two weeks with my family when I was visiting my sister. The place is clean with a good atmosphere. We only ever ate during the happy hour of 5pm to 7pm - where by certain meals are 10 AUD and drinks are 5 AUD... Very reasonable considering Sydney prices and the location (you... More

Out with family/friends for dinner.. Food took over an hour to arrive. Staff were all over the place didn't know what was going on or even which table to drop the food to even though the vicinity isn't that big. Ordered main and a starter.. Our starters never arrived and the mains were not satisfying. Cold food and missing key... More

I tried to book a table of 20 for my daughter's birthday. Was permitted to book and then 3 days prior to the event, was informed that we couldn't have our booking honoured due to the prevalence of some 17 year olds accompanying us without their parents. Despite there were 7 adults of aged around 50 and 8 adults over... More

Staying in Coogee

Neighbourhood Profile
Coogee
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 footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
