SUMMER 23/24

Ocean-front at Terrigal Crowne Plaza, it offers a surfside bar, alfresco terrace, indoor dining, and live acoustic music.


The cool place to unwind, kickback, and shake off the salt and sand from the beach is the newly revamped Terrigal Beach House. Pop in after a dip in the ocean, or gather a group of friends for a leisurely long lunch. We think you’ll love the beach views, the friendly buzz, and the warm welcoming atmosphere for families, friends and even pooches.

The interior gurus at Design Madgwick have mixed soft sandy tones and textural timbers with a sophisticated colour palette. A huge marble-topped bar runs the length of the outdoor terrace and there are loose-leather banquettes and easy rattan seating, coupled with solid oak tables for larger groups. Terrazzo flooring extends through the space while timber boards recreate a coastal boardwalk.

The culinary team and group executive chef, Jamie Gannon (who led the food direction for Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel, Woolwich Pier Hotel and The Terminus at Pyrmont), have created a fresh menu underpinned by seasonal, locally sourced produce.

“Expect elevated twists on the classics, and food that is fresh and incorporates a variety of flavours and complementary textures,” says Chef Gannon.

What’s better after a day at the beach than Grilled Prawn Tostadas, Fish Tacos, a Charcuterie Board or perhaps one of the many gourmet pizzas on offer. Sip on a cocktail or craft beer.

The Beach House Classics menu offers refined burgers, and starring a shroom vegetarian burger. On the Fresh Menu there’s a range of mouth-watering salads including a Haloumi and Charred Pumpkin Salad with avocado, pomegranate, lemon, macadamia and quinoa crumb.

Kids are catered for with a selection of classics served with complementary ice cream.

For a more intimate dining experience, settle into the light-filled indoor restaurant and enjoy a spectacular Seafood Platter of salt and pepper squid, battered flathead, king salmon, Sydney Rock Oysters, spiced salmon crudo and smoked mackerel paté served with charred flatbread.

Throughout the warmer months, Terrigal Beach House will have live acoustic most days. Sitting under the cabanas with a spritz in hand as live music fills the terrace, is the perfect way to end your day. We strongly suggest you put it on your radar.

Terrigal Beach House is located at 40 Terrigal Esplanade, Terrigal NSW 2260
