We have been to L'isle de France Terrigal several times; most recently for Mother's Day and a private event. On every occasion the food has been amazing and the service is impeccable. As an added bonus the view is second to none, even on a...rainy day. We also love the fact that in winter there are two fireplaces making it a really cozy environment. When you book and it is meant to be a nice day try to book a table on the terrace overlooking the ocean. The vegetarian and vegan options are both creative and delicious. And do not go past the soufflé entree.More

My partner & I booked a lovely table at the window for dinner on a Friday night. We were greeted by lovely warm staff. The food was nothing less than exceptional & what we expected. Always that little piece of class remains on the central...coast. Thanks Bernard & teamMore

I had a 3 course meal starting with the escargot followed by the Beef cheeks and finished off with crepes. Excellent wine list as well.

FRENCHTASTIC rare gem in the heart of Terrigal. During our stay in Terrigal we treated ourselves to a wonderful French dinner which was not only delicious but an absolute BARGAIN. Upon arrival we were quickly greeted by wonderful staff who tucked us right into our...seats and made us feel very welcome. We decided on 3 entrees and 2 mains (instead of each having an entree, main and dessert) and let me tell you IT did NOT disappoint whatsoever; the CREAMY smooth pate and the MEATY escargots bursting with flavours were an absolute hit, with only the salmon being a bit lacklustre due to a lack of depth and flavour. Both our mains hit the spot and did not MISS at all; the sweet potato purée paired beautifully with the lobster and greens ENHANCING it 10000x and made the buttery lobster even better. The beef cheeks were tender enough to be eaten without a knife and featured an awesome jus which tied the whole dish together giving birth to deliciousness. Absolute banger of a restaurant 4.7/5 🐽More

All of us agreed that our entrees and mains were very nice but we had crepes Suzette for dessert and it was very ordinary. Service was generally very good however there was a bit of confusion regarding the bill. Lovely view and good wine list.

The intuitive, friendly service, attention to detail, breathtaking views & outstanding dining was a perfect combination to celebrate a special birthday. The quality, presentation & culinary skill of every dish was deliciously superb. Fine dining that is traditionally French with a seasonal, fresh accent of...Aust local produce. Looking forward to visiting again soon! MerciMore

Yes we are, we have a special kid’s menu online, and all tables are purposely covered in white paper to allow for budding artists’ practice over dinner.

The restaurant is an upmarket eatery with white table cloths and napkins, and it's mainly inside, so it would not be dog friendly.
