This place has always been one of my favourites... not just because of the food but also because of the excellent service!

He was kind enough to serve us a complimentary drink just for our wait. It's been a while since the service at a restaurant has felt this good! Highly recommended!

Food was ok. Our salads were pretty soggy from the dressing. Favorite dish was the potato scallops. It was extremely loud inside which was not great for conversation. Beautiful decor and location, but probably won't return.

It's been a while since I've been here
I work in hospitality myself for over 4 years.
I was seating at a table before the reservation arrived also I didn't know if it was the whole table or half, I knew I had to leave at some point that part didn't bother me.
All of a sudden a French girl appears at my side unsure weather it was her section she was looking after or if other staff told her to do it so they don't get blamed unsure. I was halfway through my pasta ? and wine ? I could feel my food getting cold.
I said to her I'll find another spot
I tell her I found a spot and she then tells me everywhere is reserved when they were people leaving from the area I found a spot to seat and finish off my pasta & wine $40.00 including the surcharge on the me&u app
The pasta did not excite me the wine was nice.
I also saw the lady in all black the one that managers/host most of the workers or customers/clients that come into the venue she looked unsure of herself.
My friend use to work here, he was very switch on & so was the rest of the staff at the time. I feel because there was a staff change, it looks like either the new staff were hired based on looks or I don't wanna say this who they slept with or if their family have a connection to the owners and not experience. Because I feel I had a run around the venue to finish off what I had which was less than 10 minutes to finish and bare in mind the booking was 5:50pm I was there at 6pm just about finished and the people that reserved the whole row haven't arrived so they were late for their own reservation for the whole section, I did not see anyone.
I don't know ????? train new people because it's sad to see others in the industry not quick thinking of where to take someone & make me or someone else feel uncomfortable or less in a venue where the food is very expensive. The price of the food has to match the service not make a customer feel they could of spent 20-25$ at a venue that charges 30-40$ for a meal not including alcohol.
Please management take this & not only train in what every venue does also train staff to answer & problem solve.

Coogee Pavilion is the epitome of a beachfront haven. Whether it's a sunny day out or a cozy evening, this place never disappoints. The vast open space offers the perfect setting for a relaxed meal or casual drinks with friends. The food, from fresh seafood to pub classics, is consistently tasty, and the variety of craft beers and cocktails adds to the fun. It's the kind of spot where you can easily spend hours, enjoying the atmosphere and beachfront views. Coogee Pavilion has become a go-to for a laid-back, enjoyable time by the sea, and I can't recommend it enough for a taste of the coastal lifestyle.

Definitely nice place for the location. Typical Australian simple but effective service. food definitely below expectations for such a place by the sea. nothing special . The bill is decidedly high for two salads, a bottle of water and a platter of cold cuts.

Stopped in for a bite to eat. At first glance it looked on the pricey side. However when the food came out, and the great service we had from our waitress Lily, it was definitely worth it. Only thing I was disappointed in was not knowing about the rooftop part of the place sooner, as would have preferred to dine up there.
Between 2 people we ordered
1 tooheys tap beer
1 fresh coconut juice
1 snapper ceviche
1 pappadelle with sausage and mushroom
1 sweetcorn
The sweetcorn had parmesan and some sort of fried green garnish, that was quite different and the taste plus textures were spot on.
The ceviche was fresh, well balanced with radishes, baby cucumber, avocados, red onion and green pepper. I would have liked it to be a tiny bit bigger in the portion size for the price.
The pappadelle was perfectly cooked, the sausage and mushroom though simple were a good compliment.
Good clean food, balanced and flavourful.
I recommend it. ??????????

The location is perfect and atmosphere is great and kid's friendly. But, if your budget is tight, this place is not for you. 1 adult and 2 under 10 years old boys we spent 166 and the pastas were finished in less than 10 bites. You have to order at lest 3 pastas for an adult to feel full.

Situated on the beach with wonderful views of the beach, park and town and heaps of parking. I just loved the look of the building inside and out. This place caters for everyone and I mean from families with very young children to the party animals and business meetings etc. It has the levels from memory and I just love how well it flows and such a wonderful vibe that makes you want to stay.

Beats any place I've been to in a very long time. Both Melbourne and Sydney. Nothing else compares.

Great food, good vibe and friendly waiters. Unfortunately suffers from knuckle dragging staff manning the door - even at 5pm on a Saturday - but that's hard to get around in Sydney these days. After finishing late lunch on the ground floor we were refused entry upstairs. Decided to take out party of 6 up the road to the competitors to celebrate my wife's birthday instead. Had a great night despite the chimpanzees. Go for the food and the vibe. Don't expect common sense from the door staff.

Really amazing place to feel vacation. The day we vsited here was a super sunny day with cool wind.

1. Food
Food was nice. We ordered Chicken Schnitzel, Octopus and Pasta. Only Octopus was dried-octopus so that taste is not good but Schnitzel and Pasta was perfect.

2. Offered service
Service was good but it's not easy for us to talk with staffs here because our table was outdoor table. However, general service from this restaurant was really good and kind.

3. Atmosphere
Outdoor table is very fantastic when weather is good. Indoor table was not my preference because music was too loud for me. however, this place is really kid-friendly place so you also can come with family.

4. Value
Price is not cheap but when you consider you are in sea, then it's acceptable.

All in all good. The issue is more the service that is always slow an inattentive.
Food is constantly good, although hardly ever new or existing. We do keep coming back so really no complaints. Decent pub food, good location.

Before coming, we contacted them to ask if we needed to book a table. They said that it was not needed. Once we arrived, however, they told us there were no available tables, and we had to sit at the bar.

Fortunately, we were able to find a table and order the margarita pizza. It arrived very quickly, and it was delicious!

It is a great place to try tab beers as they have a great variety.

Despite the booking issue, this was a lovely place near the beach.

My seafood chowder was a disappointment, very small soup like portion with no prawns and little substance - the liquid was very thin for a chowder and served with a slice of sourdough toast. Very expensive at $36.

The grilled octopus was overcooked and chewy with no taste.

The burger was salty and a bit pink in the middle.

The pizza however was good.

King Prawns were fine but the bread was stale.

Large venue along the coast. It's popular in the afternoons and evenings, so book ahead for the restaurant or you can usually find a spot in the bar area. There are some interesting things on the menu, like leatherjacket, which I had. The food was tasty, but not amazing. It's a simple ordering process using your phone.

Great view and pizzas are served in Coogee Pavilion. Most of the time, the place is too crowded and it causes you to wait in the queue. Sometimes this crowd makes the service slower for Coogee Pavilion. That's why you may wait for a while for your order. Advantages could be counted as their cocktails which are really good and the speed of beverage delivery in the venue. It worths to give it a try to spend one night in Coogee Pavilion. Especially if you are going to have a large group. P.S. Make you sure you do the booking before you arrive.

I lived in Coogee for 5 years and from the very moment the Pavilion opened up.
Needless to say I've spent countless days and nights with friends, for dinner and drinks.
Vinnie's pizza is perhaps one of the best in town, the wood ovens surely make a difference and the restaurant service is also good.
A favourite, shared so many memories there

Beautiful spot! The food is okay for a super busy place like this. They have got a nice set up outside with tables and umbrellas, very nice on a sunny hot day as you get a lovely ocean breeze. Just beware that food may take a while on busy days.

Bar service isn't great... went for dinner with my family. I stood at the bar which wasn't busy for at least 5minutes while the bartender did another job right in front of me without even acknowledging I was standing there. - a simple 'be with you in a moment' would've let me know that he at least saw me waiting which he did because there was no else there and I was right in front of him.
I also ordered a Tommy's margarita from the table when we arrived. When the $19.50 cocktail came out in a water glass with no salt or anything. It basically looked like a small glass of lemon squash. It tasted ok but it was so below par that I couldn't actually believe they'd served a $19.50 cocktail so pathetically. My partner took it back to the bar and they basically handed him a different cocktail glass with salt on the rim and got him to pour the cocktail into the new MARTINI glass... I ordered a Tommy's margarita because it's supposed to come in a tumbler and that's how I like it and costing $19.50 I assumed the pavilion would do a good one... and to my surprise it was the worst margarita I've had. I make better ones at home. Really disappointing for a venue of this price range. I've always had some issue with this place every time I've been. It's usually the service or the security but this time it was the Margie.

Love the ambiance, drinks & service. It's always hip and great terrace by the beach but please change the stamps you guys put on our wrists 😭Yesterday because of it my YSL bag & dress got stained and now it's completely ruined. Please change the ink! This one stains everything.

Gelato wasn't great and for that price you could probably get better quality and bigger scoop elsewhere
