The service was fabulous, fun and informed. The advice we got about the wine and food made it a really special dining experience... the view wasn't half bad either! Worth the money!

Really magnificent view across the ocean and over Whale Beach. While it’s all about the view the breakfast was excellent and the service was attentive. We enjoyed the poached eggs, the view, the trout, the view, the croissant, the view, the cereal, the coffee, the view etc. A worthwhile experience even if you just do it for the view.

Jonah's is one of my favourite fine dining restaurants in the whole of Sydney! Not only is the service outstanding but the quality and taste of the dishes is unforgettable. Go for lunch if you want a stunning meal with a view or go for dinner if you would love an amazing dining experience. Not to mention, for $110 for 3 courses - it is such amazing value. This was my second time dining here but it definitely won't be the last!

Went here for mothers day 1. Didnt get any fork points for booking through this website 2. Food was average and well overpriced 3. Great service 4. Great Wine 5. Great views ...wouldn't recommend spending the money here when there are other places with just as nice views and service but better food...like Lavender Bay.
Dear Jessica, Thank you for your comments about our great service, wine offering and views. Although The Fork points are not issued by us, we apologise for the inconvenience. In relation to your comments about the food, we are very disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. After 90 years of operation, we pride ourselves on our award-winning hatted restaurant, and strive to offer our guests the best dining experience possible every time. We have received many positive comments about our current menu but realise that we cannot always cater to every individuals taste. We hope that you may return to Jonah’s in the future so that we have the opportunity to leave you with a more positive memory. Kind regards, General Manager
