Modern Australian in The Central Coast

The short, seafood-heavy menu does a fine job of stealing attention from the spectacular views at this white-linen place at Terrigal beach's southern end. The food is beautifully prepared and staff are cheery. Downstairs, the Cove Cafe offers unluxurious balcony seating with sea breezes and a relaxed atmosphere. It opens some evenings in high summer.
