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.

Wow. Our 2nd trip back to Terrace Grill was even better than the first. We started with two of the daily specials which was a dusted baby squid (think salt and pepper squid only better) and the crab ravioli which was out of this world....For mains we mixed it up a little bit and had the Veal Neptune (an Italian classic done well) and the whole lemon Sole. Both were absolutely delicious. The generous portion sizes meant we didn’t have room for dessert which is a pity as I was looking forward to the Tiramisu. The service was professional yet friendly and the wine suggestion was spot on. Dining on Easter Saturday was a plus as many other restaurants were closed. Yes we paid a surcharge of 10% but that was totally understandable. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Terrigal.More

Absolutely awful food and dining experience. Restaurant is very old and tired. Whole place is not nice. Including the food. Seafood is dreadful. So many better places to eat in Terrigal.

The WORST Seafood platter EVER. Lobster Mornay bland, Bugs very watery(spat it out) and the rest beyond boring, worse than extremely average. Chat with Chef met with denial of anything being frozen, certainly no discount and a disappointing reaction from the Chef who insisted everything...is fresh when it is not. Having said that- the waiting staff are wonderful.More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do appreciate all feedback. The Seafood Magic which you are referring to is one of our signature meals. As the owner and chef I can guarantee you that I did not say that nothing...More

Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Small and intimate! Fine dining at its best. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and delicious food. We had a seafood entree consisting of delicious oysters and lobster cooked...perfectly. I loved the grilled sole for a main. It just melted in my mouth. The cheesecake was also one of the best I have eaten. Fresh food at its best. Highly recommend this place and know we will be back. Excellent service too!More

What a great experience made all the better due to the outstanding hospitality and service from Jay. From the moment we entered we were looked after with suggestions, gentle guidance and great warmth from Jay. The food was excellent, matched by the service of this...lovely restaurant. Our every need was met due to Jay’s anticipation and perceptiveness of what we wanted. This is an absolute gem in Terrigal. We will be back due to the great food, wine list and outstanding service.More

We had not booked and walked in off the street, we were met with a very warm welcome and shown to a table. We were introduced to the menu and given excellent food and wine recommendations by Jay, the very professional hostess. She was a...delight and made our evening one we will remember! The menu was very good and quite reasonably priced for what was excellent food, I chose the beef fillet and my wife had the lamb. If we were here for longer we would definitely eat there again !!! Thank youMore

Food was excellent and we can’t say enough about the wonderful staff. We had the 3 tiered seafood magic with lobster as it was a special occasion. The seafood was fresh and delicious and well worth the price. Our wonderful waiter was amazing and helped...us select a wine to go with our meal. He knows so much about wine and of course the food. All of the diners around us had various dishes and told us everything was fresh and super tasty, so we are now intending to go back to try one of Tony’s pastas…or his famous paella.More

Excellent! The Heritage listed building gives this restaurant the feel of a bygone era with a lovely ambience. The menu is a combination of traditional Italian, seafood and modern Australian. It has too many options, however our waiter was more than accommodating in answering our...questions and making recommendations to ease the burden of choice. The service and food is outstanding. The standouts were the Crab Ravioli, Chilli Bugs, and the Spaghetti Vongole. The Sydney Rock Oysters fresh from Brisbane Waters were as good as I’ve tasted. That’s not to say my carnivore friends didn’t enjoy themselves. The Lamb Fillet was divine. Although we didn’t partake in the Seafood platters (they call them Seafood Magic) we did see them being served in the restaurant and they look like a must order item for our next visit. All in all a wonderful experience. Despite not being one of the modern brass and glass restaurants with ocean views this is more than overcome by the service and food. We will be back!More
