This is the first really awful review I have ever given. . . . If you go to Terrigal in New South Wales, under NO circumstances visit Haven Beach Cafe Restaurant unless you want to be ignored, abused or you have three hours to spend there and don't care if you get served or not. A beautiful spot by the... More

Cup of tea - nice idea after walking the Skillion. Asked to sit and waitress would come and take our order (no menu offered). Sat for 15 minutes, while 9 other people arrived - no menus offered. Finally placed order - waited another 15 minutes - toast but no tea. Decided to call it a day and went to pay... More

Today travelling through the Central Coast we decided to have lunch at Terrigal but our choice of the Haven Beach Cafe was a disaster. We were hungry so we chose the $50 seafood platter for 2. After eating a dry and overcooked prawn cutlet I photographed our $50 lunch investment. Then further disgust seeing the green slime sediment on the... More

Great location. Very friendly staff and efficient service. Some fine local hunter valley wines. Menu very refreshing. View amazing and nice touch to add the binoculars to try and spot a Whale.

We had to feel sorry for the young girl who was left to face hordes of hungry and unhappy customers on a recent Sunday. Like most, we waited more than 40 minutes for a simple order of hot chips and potato scallops. The kitchen was obviously servicing both the adjacent cafe and the takeaway outlet, but that was no excuse... More

Too expensive, waited an hour for takeaway food, and it was average.. A lot of people requesting their money.. I won't come back here ever again

We had lunch here on Saturday & generally enjoyed our experience. The views are great, tables well placed, seating very comfortable & the sea food was fresh & well cooked. Staff were pleasant & generally efficient. We thought the prices were OK if there had been a bit more put into the meals. The crumbed whiting & calamari were excellent... More

We enjoyed our table on the deck by the water at the Haven in picturesque Terrigal. Then we experienced poor service with a waitress who was there for the first time as they were desperate. Half the things were not available that were on the menu, and even our menus differed slightly (e.g., some offered salt and pepper squid, some... More

We had a casual breakfast here and had helpful and very pleasant service. We only had coffee and eggs and it was great. We will be back to soak up the view and have a relaxed breakfast.
