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.

We ordered 2 chicken schnitzel burgers and kids cheeseburger and were very disappointed with the quality of food. Schnitzel was so overcooked that half of it gone to the bin. Kids cheeseburger was ok, but the size was so small that it took 3 bites...to finish it. So we spent $80 dollars for almost nothing. Won’t be buying food there anytime soon 🙁More

Such a fabulous location but it feels like the whole place hasn’t been renovated in 20 years. Our table in the restaurant was a bit mouldy, drainage inadequate so we trudged through puddles on the way to our table and the toilets were hidden down...a passageway and quite gloomy inside. Food was fine, atmosphere fine. So much potential for this place but it needs money spent on it.More

Brought a friend who was in Australia for the first time for lunch, was given a lovely table with a view as requested (booked pergola section) and it was a faultless experience. I love Merivale venues as they actually train their staff. Once again service...was friendly and efficient, food was delicious (rotisserie chicken and a salmon poke bowl), wine was cold. The perfect way to showcase Sydney to a visitor.More

Beautiful views, great atmosphere. We were fortunate enough to sit at a table overlooking the water and the views were simply stunning. I visited with family and friends. The service was great, helpful and quick. For me, The Newport did have more of a beach...club feel than a restaurant, especially as we visited mid afternoon on a sunny day, but we enjoyed the experience and have some fabulous photos of the surrounding panoramic views.More

An institution...but I thought the waterside location was a part of that atmosphere in the old days, now the trees have grown up and you don't get many views (the "pergola" section still has them, overlooking the car park), while the outdoor areas are rather...dirty and dingy. Might be fun though if it weren't one of the most expensive pubs in Sydney. The food leans towards the classic Merivale "very ordinary but expensive" ethos (other Merivale places are "good but still overpriced" and like all Merivale places, they artfully puff up the food to make it seem bigger and better, which I guess they do to the bar areas too, often looking very nice, but not as successful here).More

The burgers are awful. Surely they can improve from the truck stop quality they are currently serving. Fries were bright yellow which was a real turnoff. Poke bowl was ok but compared to other venues on the beaches it’s a pretty underwhelming menu they are...serving. Bar service was sloppy and slow. Unless you live close by it’s not worth the trip.More

With great views across Pittwater and extensive outdoor dining areas, this is an excellent location for a summer lunch or dinner on a balmy evening. However, the food arrangements are very confused. There are three different locations from which to order different types of food...and other areas to order drinks, so it may be necessary to go to four separate places to order and then collect your meal and drinks, which can be very inconvenient, particularly if the buzzers for different pickups go off at the same time. That said, the pizzas were fantastic, although adding anchovies to one pizza was an exorbitant extra $9, and the service was friendly and efficient.More

Very welcoming staff make this a great venu. Pizza service and quality of pizza is excellent and not to be missed. A wide selection of beers and wines as well as a good selection of pub favourites can be found here. Views from the terraces...are stunning and there is plenty of parking space. The only disappointing feature are the restrooms which can only be described as very basic and in need of refurbishment.More

Magnificent lunch for 6 selected from the menu and wine list. Service impeccable and what could have been regarded as an acceptable fish was regarded as overdone by the Maître dishing up the fish as he apologised and organised a repeat attempt. It was perfect....We all were impressed by the event.More

Good range of food for both adults and kids. The cheese/meat board and fish n chips were good. Movie night was also a fun addition. Quieter during the week!

We've been coming here on and off for years - I love the vibe and the views are fantastic - the service is also pretty decent - it's lovely you can bring your puppies to join you as well. So why do I give the...place such a harsh rating?! The food is just poor --- I've been telling my family that they've been over-sensitive about the quality of the food (b/c I love going here for the views etc), but they're right - it's just not good --- a few weekends ago I had the Nicoise Salad and it looked and tasted like lettuce leaves with no dressing with some canned tuna piled on top. It's such a pity - the food wouldn't need to improve much to really make this place great.More

No no no. Nope. Reservations aren’t reliable. People at reservations aren’t reliable. The vibe is awful. The drinks are appalling. From my heart: no tycoon could ever replace the warmth of true hospitality.

Seriously if that's all you have to worry about, that's very sad. You should have been looking at the beautiful view enjoying a cold ale, instead of opening your bun and worrying about a smear of butter.
