Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Henley Surf Live Saving Club is unpretentious and just a lovely place to hang out. The view of the turquoise ocean is die for. We ordered seafood platter for 2 and it was so generous it could feed 3-4 easily. We also ordered a 12” pizza burger and it is exactly what the name says it is, a really giant burger - it was really delicious, the cheese gooey and melted, the yoghurt source balances the aromatic lamb pieces. The seafood is really fresh. There was salt and pepper squid, 2 pcs of fish of the day (fresh SA mulloway), many oysters, SSASpencer Gulf prawns, chips and Salad. Seafood platter was $45per head, we ordered for 2, it was enough for 4! Good value, million dollar view and great service, what could we ask for?

Food at Henley surf club is consistently good for food, service and atmosphere. Small or large groups are easily catered for and the view is stunning. Henley is a great surf club for eating and socialising

What a disappointment. The ambience,nviews and staff were great. The food not so. The memu was limited and the servings a great disappointment. The crab pasta had less than a dessert spoonful of crab. The serving sizes for the pasta were entree size. The king George whiting was dried out and the chips cold and hard. And to top it off the prices were far too high for what we received and compared to similar places. If in doubt try West Beach Surf club or Glenelg, a both you get great value for money. Not again for us

We booked a table for brunch & a few days later on the day we were due to go were phoned saying we had to go early as they had a big function on & needed us served (and it almost felt like it was implied that we were gone). Sat at table & asked by waiter if we were ready to order, said yes then he left.. didn’t tell us it wasn’t table service & we had to go to counter to order!! Ordered & had smashed avocado & poached egg. Both eggs hard & 1 piece of bread burnt. Peppermint tea came with a dirty cup, replaced by less dirty cup. On this experience it would be hard to recommend this as a place to go…being kind I’m hoping it was because they were stressed about the big function they had coming in

The new Ocean restaurant at the Henley Surf Club is so overpriced and the food was average. We ordered a shared entree and mains to compare with other local restaurants and the portion sizes were way smaller but more expensive. The service was terrible - we had to ask for cutlery and the waiter handed my husband his fork by holding the tines! We had a pasta dish and the fish and chips. The pasta was gorgeous, however I asked for parmesan cheese but this never arrived. The fish and chips were very below par. Small portion and awful chips. The wine list is not great either. Only one choice of Sav Blanc, which they ran out of. We ordered a bottle of Pino Grigio, which still hadn't arrived by the time we'd finished our main courses. When we cancelled the wine we were offered a free glass of wine each, but we were already so disappointed by that point, we declined and left. A shared entree, 2 main courses, 3 glasses of wine and 3 beers cost $200. Madness for a local Henley Beach restaurant. We had prebooked for lunch later in the week, but cancelled and went to a much better, much cheaper local restaurant. It's a real shame for Surf Club members as this used to be a brilliant place to eat. We won't be returning.

This is a fantastic location with great views of the beach and sunset. We were sat on a wooden stool at a high table for a 90 minute reservation. We were offered water on arrival and then 30 mins in we were told we had to order at the bar. Other tables had been waited on. The entrees were good but table wasn’t cleared before mains finally arrived and then we were bemused to find a young lad try to put our mains on top of the dirty plates. No more water or drink orders were taken. No dessert was offered. The fish was terribly dry but to the owners credit the cost of one overpriced main was taken off the bill. Service was nonexistent - if you want a nice night out… don’t go to Ocean. We left disappointed, hungry, thirsty and sore.

$42 for "Pesce" and chips. Seriously?? This was stale frozen fish served with frozen chips out of a bag and a pretty ordinary salad. The new decor will only keep the Nannas happy, but maybe that is the crowd they are going for.

Food was very expensive and really not enjoyable. Eggplant Parmigiana was the only nice thing ordered, but was really oily and had no sides. Mains are about $40 each. Lamb ‘slow cooked’ shoulder was sent back as it had ice in it Massive bill for nothing. No view except scaffolding at the moment. View wouldn’t have saved it. More fresh produce needed to charge those prices

We visited here today upon a stranger in the street recommending that we visit here. The inside of the restaurant is a beautiful space with wonderful views along the beach. It’s a hidden gem. The service we received was friendly, informative and welcoming, just lovely. Unfortunately the food was a bit of a letdown. The scallops were ok but not fantastic and the whiting was over cooked and lacked taste. Overall a nice experience. We would come back for the view

Such a terrible day weather wise but the service and food made up for that. The service was so friendly and it made you feel like they liked working there. We ordered the Margherita pizza and it was one of the best I’ve had in ages. I also made the comment we will share and the staff listened and it came out on 2 platters With summer coming we will definitely return

Our Sunday lunch with friends at the Ocean Bar and Kitchen was a fabulous experience. The welcoming atmosphere and stunning ocean views set the stage for a memorable afternoon of wining and dining. The Kingfish Crudo and the Waygu beef Carpaccio were exceptional, and the service was top-notch. Highly recommend for a delicious meal in a beautiful seaside setting!

On a breezy day, chose to sit inside and enjoy view. Is upstairs, windows all around and outside dining too. Something for everyone on menu and specials. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the place.

OMG!!! This is exactly what Henley Beach needed! The new owners have done such an amazing job with the new decor and transforming a rundown old fashioned space into a modern venue. We honestly had the best seafood platter we've ever had, with the right balance of grilled and fried items... none of this battered oily food that other places around the area serve. The pastas are absolutely to die for, in particular the crab pasta and for those still wanting a traditional "surf club" meal they still serve parmis and burgers (although not sure why you would order these with the amazing selection on offer). Prices are extremely reasonable especially when you compare them to other places around the area and the views are stunning. We've also been on a sunday arvo for drinks which was so beautiful, they even have a DJ playing cool tunes. Welcome to the neighbourhood Ocean Bar and Kitchen, you're obviously doing something right going by the amount of people that are always there... well done!
