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.

What a find, so glad we made the time to visit. We made a booking for 12 people and could not have asked for better service, all our meals came out promptly and looked and tasted amazing! Was so hard to choose what to have as all the meals on the menu looked so appetizing. Ordered the french toast and wow what a treat that was! Great value for money, portion of meals did not disappoint, family friendly and so accommodating to little children. The view is to die for!!! Will definitely be coming back.

Aptly named as the ocean view is to die for from this friendly little cafe. Great service from Claire and perfectly cooked scrambled eggs with crispy bacon and eggs benny with spinach created by master chef Lourdes. Will definitely return with the adult kids.

This is a great brunch or lunch spot for anyone travelling up or down the NSW coast. We came from Kangaroo Valley, looking for a halfway stopover on our way to Sydney. The food was fresh and tasty, service friendly and smart. They took their Covid responsibilities seriously, so it turned out to be a perfectly-relaxed brunch, with excellent coffee, taken on the outside verandah with a fine high-up view of the Pacific and surf beach in the distance.

This Cafe has a beautiful view and food is always great. We always stop in traveling to the South Coast. This visit was very disappointing. We sat for 10mins then had to ask for menus. Our order took 30 mins to arrive even though nothing had to be cooked and they weren’t overly busy. Was very disappointed that tables were not cleaned after use either. There is a sign saying Covid restrictions mean limited dining time. 20mins for coffee & Cake 40mins if having a meal. We were there over an hour....no fault on our part.

Found this litte gem at the end of he main street. Experienced great service, food and drinks were quick with hot coffee and great tasting food. The views form this cafe over Gerringong are worth spending time and a coffee alone.

Excellent food to go with an excellent view. Husband branded it the best big breakfast ever. If you like lamb with mint sauce this is the place for you and you don’t have to ask for it. The lamb burger delivered. Food was amazing. Berry smoothie was also excellent.

Staff are friendly and it's a lovely view over Werri beach. I ordered some toast that was to come with ricotta. It arrived, two pieces of toast but no ricotta. I asked for the ricotta and was given a tiny teaspoon full, barely enough to cover half a piece of the toast. When I mentioned it to the staff, I received a 'so sorry about that' and nothing more. Food is good but staff don't really seem to care about the customer feedback.

Same view as the Hill Bar and Kitchen but great for a quiet chat over lunch whilst taking in the fabulous view of Warri Beach and beyond. The two of us dripped in for a late lunch on a Sunday. Sat outside on the spacious deck and shared a Charcuterie platter with iced coffees. The platter was generous and great to nibble on whilst we relaxed and talked the afternoon away. At under $40 for the two of us we will definately be back for brunch/lunch.

We had a late lunch here and just loved it!! The staff were great, the view was fantastic and the meal was excellent! We shared the salt & pepper squid, lamb salad (spicy ... yum!) & the barramundi with prawns, between our party of 4 ... & everything was excellent! The fresh juices hit the spot too! Thoroughly enjoyed the Sea Vista & can’t wait to return on our next Gerringong visit!

Had lunch - fish and chips were ok but nothing special a little lacking on taste. Chocolate milkshakes were very weak on the chocolate. Eggs benedict were ok but hollandaise sauce a little plastic. Waiter was frazzled but not many customers. Maybe an off day. Views from cafe are fantastic. Toilets broken too.

20 years ago we started making the Sea Vista Café our go-to place for lunch when travelling down the South Coast. Over that time, we've consistently enjoyed the ambiance and food, and then there's that view! I particularly like how the staff don't just rely on that amazing view to draw patrons in. They match it with delicious meals, generous servings, and fresh ingredients. On this occasion, we opted for the grilled barramundi with chips + salad, and the pulled lamb burger + chips. Oh, and we enjoyed our meals while taking in some seriously-good whale watching from our balcony table. A big tick for friendly service. Although we continued to sit for a while after paying our bill, the waitress still continued to top up our bottled water and offer great service. If I could change anything, I would opt for the piped music to be a bit more in the background with something a bit more chilled and relaxed, like Dido. On this occasion, we were travelling down to Culburra Beach for an extended family get-away. During our lunch at Sea Vista, we texted our photos home to other family members (see attached), and they too ended up dining at Sea Vista the next day on their way down to Culburra Beach. All up, we love this place, but just don't tell too many people our secret (smile!).

The view from Sea Vista over the ocean is superb and the standard of food matches the view. I had the bircher muesli for brunch which was simply wonderful. The other meals coming out from the kitchen also looked fantastic and judging by the looks on the faces of the customers, they tasted great too. Their coffee is also rather good!

This place could be so much better given the location but they have really lost their way. Mixed up orders, missing ingredients, not very clean ( seats, floors, windows ) and the food was very hot and miss. Begrudgingly they offered friendly table service. Pity as Gerringong has so many great places to eat now ... so the standard should man have been raised down all. Stuck in the 90s perhaps when near enough was good enough.

Excellent Views of the coastline around Werri beach with delicious food and fast friendly service. Great value. I loved the healthy meal I ordered which from memory was the Vista bowl. Very generous portions at a very reasonable price and gluten free. Friendly staff and a popular cafe so its worth booking ahead. Indoor and outdoor tables available. My husband ordered the steak sandwich on focaccia bread which he really enjoyed too. Wheelchair access makes this a great place for those with mobility problems too. What a gem. We loved our meal here. We will return!

'Sea Vista,' was recommended to us by the owners of our Gerringong, accommodation, 'Park Ridge Retreat.' Although the restaurant was quite busy, we were promptly welcomed and shown to a fabulous table with expansive views of gorgeous Gerringong's, Werri beach and headland. The service was outstanding, as were the breakfast offerings. Sea Vista has an extensive menu, (including traditional Turkish fare), as well as typical Australian favourites, (hearty 'English,' breakfast, Avocado on Toast, Fruit bowls, etc). 'Sea Vista's,' barrista, created fabulous coffees, the chef's efforts were equally brilliant. Our breakfasts were delicious. Our only regret about 'Sea Vista,' is that we only had time to dine there once!
