Time Out says
Being by the beach is all well and good but once the sun goes down the surfboards, goggles and togs get put away and those sun-kissed bodies need a place to let off steam. And that place is the Coogee Bay Hotel. As one of two major establishments that face onto the golden sands of Coogee beach, the Bay has no lack of loyal followers. The venue has also undergone a refurb lately, adding a little caravan that dishes up fresh poke to the food offering, plus a second food truck that is all about the grilled meats wrapped in soft pitas.
