Top 8 Restaurants For A Date Night On The Central Coast

by Brooke Tasovac (follow)
Useful Lists (19)      For Mums (11)     
The Central Mums Useful Lists are a quick reference to some of the most helpful, fun and important places in Central Coast. Our lists are continually updated and cover the best places for kids and parents across Central Coast.

The Central Coast is a great place to be a parent because there are plenty of places to eat out with kids. However, occasionally it’s nice to eat somewhere where you can drink wine without worrying about it being knocked over, and without needing to see the kids menu, and without rushing out by 7pm to get the kids home to bed.


Here are the best restaurants to go to for an adults-only date night, as voted by our savvy Central Mums:

Bombini Restaurant & Bar, Avoca

This restaurant is actually part of a beautiful two acre property near Avoca, with two different areas to eat in - a pizza bar in the upstairs area if you want a casual meal, or you can go to the more formal downstairs area which has a modern Australian/Italian menu.

There’s also a bar for pre-dinner drinks with great cocktails, which you can sip while sitting on the terrace or on one of the comfy daybeds.

“Definitely go downstairs!” - Central Mums member

Reef, Terrigal

With floor to ceiling glass windows looking over The Haven at Terrigal, the perfect location is a major drawcard at this restaurant but it also has an amazing seafood-focused menu. There’s a degustation option if you want to celebrate a special occasion, such as an anniversary. If you’re on a budget they have lunch specials during the week.

“The food is great and it has an amazing view!” - Central Mums member

Rhondas, Terrigal

With cute booth tables and a neon light sign out the front, Rhonda’s has a fun retro style. It’s a good place to go when you want an inexpensive meal for things such as shared tapas dishes or main meals such as grilled meats and burgers. It’s not a huge menu but if you get the banquet you can try a bit of everything, and of course, there’s sangria and margaritas.

It’s close enough to Terrigal Beach that you can have a stroll on the sand at the end of your date.

“Amazing tapas!” - Central Mums member

Pinocchios Wine & Pizza, Gosford

This is a must visit if you love a glass of vino with gourmet pizza made the true Italian way (and who doesn’t). It’s well placed in the middle of the Gosford CBD, with a rustic design inside, with high ceilings and exposed brick walls, and a beautiful marble bar. The wine list is longer than the food menu and they have some great desserts.

If you go there on a weeknight you can get some good meal deals, and it will be quieter than it is on the weekend.

“Great staff, food, atmosphere and wine.” - Central Mums member

Safran, Ettalong Beach

For something different, Safran serves up Turkish mezze plates similar to tapas, which you can eat inside or outside - the restaurant has both dining options, and it’s nice and quiet, tucked away behind the shops and the cinema. The dishes are really reasonably priced and there are lots to choose from. It’s fully licensed but you can BYO wine and they have a decent cocktail menu too.

“It has a lovely atmosphere and great service and of the course the food is beautiful. We were so full. ” - Central Mums member

Yum Yum Eatery, Hardys Bay

It’s hard to figure out exactly what the cuisine is at this restaurant but the menu seems to be mostly Asian with dishes such as sashimi and dumplings, and some modern Australian dishes like pasta and fresh seafood. If you get a table outside you can watch the sunset over the beach while you eat.

You can BYO wine but they do have a good wine list to choose from and are fully licensed for everything else.

“Yum Yum is my hidden coastal gem. It’s a smaller restaurant that overlooks the bay and the food is always divine. Great service and always busy, you need to book.” - Central Mums member.

The Cowrie, Terrigal

It’s all about the wine at The Cowrie with a really wide range to choose from, and staff who can recommend which ones go perfectly with any of the dishes on the menu, which is a mix of seafood and red meat (and they also have a cheese menu). Being located up high on Scenic Highway also means they have a panoramic view over Terrigal and the bay area.

“The staff, the food and the wine make it worth a visit.” - Central Mums member

Young Barons, Woy Woy

A delicious pasta bar situated in the heart of Woy Woy.

"Amazing little spot." - Central Mums member

I second young Barons in Woy Woy!" - Central Mums member
