Spend Australia Day in Ultimate Style

Cold Cocktail by the Beach

What’s your idea of the perfect Australia Day celebration? Is it a backyard barbeque with friends, a day on the beach or a bit of relaxation and luxury? If your idea is to spend the afternoon overlooking the pristine coastline of Terrigal in cool and airy comfort, sipping Champagne, then the perfect escape awaits you at The Joker and the Thief.

If you’d rather have the holiday fare brought to you, then the coast’s most stylish restaurant-bar experience is the perfect choice for Australia Day. We are offering a special Surf n Turf menu on 26 January which features the kind of creative cuisine for which we’ve become known.

On the menu for Australia Day are sumptuous shared platters, spectacular mains of seafood and beef fillet, and delicious side dishes. Some would call it the ultimate surf and turf. We call it unpretentious decadence.

But it’s not just the food that will delight you on this perfect long weekend. The atmosphere, styling and surrounds of the Joker and the Thief, provide a haven from the hustle and bustle of the Esplanade below.

While our name is an homage to Bob Dylan, our interior is Mad Men meets INXS – 1960s Mid Century Modern with a nod to Art Deco and a luxe Rock n Roll edge.

We are open for breakfast on the weekends, or lunch and dinner every other day. We also have a bar menu available if you’re just looking for a drink and a snack.

And if your Australia Day lunch ends up going all afternoon and into the night, we kick things up a notch with our signature cocktails, craft beers, artisinal wines and spirits.

So join us for the your long weekend celebrations and book a table for yourself and your friends.
