The Surf Deck
Picture this: Pina Coladas by the beach with a second-to-none close-up view of the sand and the sparkly waves. If this is what comes to mind for you when you think "waterfront restaurant", Merivale's new beach venue The Surf Deck needs to be on your radar.
The Surf Deck is essentially an extension of The Collaroy—a slick Tiki-inspired spot smack bang on the sand at Collaroy Beach, installed just in time for summer, naturally.
Here, the retro resort-style cocktails are where it's at. A classic Banana Daiquiri is our go-to, made with Havana Club 3, Crème de Banane, Coco Lopez, banana, and lemon. There's also a Zombie, a Mai Tai, and of course, a Pina Colada to give you all the peak summer holiday feels. You'll also see a neat menu of wine if that's more your beat.
Hungry? The menu is a lineup of perfect beachside eating: Sydney Rock oysters with pineapple and pepper mignonette, yellowfin tuna tostadas, beer battered fish and chips, pork belly tacos, and a selection of pizzas, available for dinner throughout the week and for lunch too Friday through Sunday.
