Pizza was amazing and the Vodka Pasta was so fresh! The entrée's were great value, focaccia and the arancini balls were the best starters. Will definitely be back again soon!

Great food, horrible experience. It turns out my sister accidentally booked the bar area upstairs which has a very limited menu, we take complete responsibility for the error but the way which we were treated was absolutely disgusting. We had our parents with us (inc my dad who lives with a disability), they were unable to climb the stairs (and the very high chairs upstairs) so we kindly asked to be seated downstairs. We were told we had “30 mins to order, eat and leave” - anyone in their right mind knows this is impossible, and when we asked if there were any other options - they rudely suggested “you can carry the food upstairs yourselves” (??) and “if anyone comes within 30 mins you’ll need to pack it up and leave”. We understand the error in booking upstairs was ours, but there were FOUR empty tables downstairs at the time we left (we chose to take the overpriced food away and went back home to eat it given how hostile the staff were towards us). The food itself is good but nothing to write home about, certainly not worth the poor experience. In a nutshell, if you care to be respected, I’d suggest you pass.

We appreciate your honest feedback and want to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you faced during your visit. It's clear that we fell short of providing the level of service we aim for, and for that, we're truly sorry.

Your concerns about the limited menu upstairs and the handling of the situation are taken seriously. We're actively working on improving our communication and service to ensure a better experience for all our guests. on the communication front though - we do want to highlight that at the time of booking it is very clearly stated in writing that there is a different menu upstairs. Perhaps we need to take action to make it clearer - we will look into it.

This all said though, thank you for bringing this occurrence to our attention, and we sincerely hope you might consider giving us another chance to provide you with the dining experience you deserve.

Rhonda’s restaurant has good reviews so we booked in having walked past it and seen it very busy for the last few nights.
The restaurant was quiet, probably due to the thunderstorms earlier, my pizza was good but my wife’s prawn linguine was only average. I think I made the best choice.
Overall, having considered what we have paid in other places in Terrigal, I thought it was a little overpriced.

Last night we celebrated our daughter’s 21st upstairs at Rhonda’s with 90 of her friends. The evening was a fabulous success. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food and service was amazing.
Thank you for helping to make the night such a success.
