what people say about crest


“What a view!”

This restaurant is right on the beach with lovely views over the surf and sand dunes.
The food was well presented and tasty.
Service was friendly and quick.
We thoroughly enjoyed brunch here on a perfect day.

“Heaven, and that’s before you eat”5 of 5 stars

What a gem. After a fairly disappointing trip around Coffs Harbour, we headed South to Nelson Bay and found a little bit of magic by the name of Crest with an outlook to die for. They could have served up a ‘Macca’ and it would still have been ok. However, they didn’t. The staff were friendly, the food was good, and did I mention the view? Admittedly, the two days we went there were blessed with perfect weather, and the view was amazing. If I were to compose an ad that shouted out Australia, I’d take my film crew here, take some shots from the cafe and go home. Do yourself a favour and get there soon.

“Just Beautiful”5 of 5 stars

We have eaten at Crest lots of times and I reckon it just keeps getting better. The new shaded area is lovely. We had nachos and bruscetta for lunch and that was just right.
The view is magnificent.

I have to make comment on the wonderful friendly staff. Every time we have been for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee, the staff have been absolutely wonderful. They are ALWAYS friendly and efficient. The food is fantastic. We make a point now to take our family and friends who visit us from Queensland for a meal or coffee.

Just had the best lunch! Thank you so much guys, and you even catered for my allergies – was so yummy! And it didn’t matter that it was super windy and rainy down there as your inside area is magical

Had a great breakfast at Crest this morning, what a magic day to be on the beach, and be cool and comfortable. Loving the decor. Good luck guys we will be back.

Best hot chips ever!

Reviewed 21 January 2014

Magic location at Birubi Point. All the food is great, but the hot chips with Rosemary Salt are to die for. Just the thing after a romp in the surf is to chill out in the cafe overlooking the beautiful surf beach. Full on professional kitchen and really friendly service.
