Just over an hour outside Sydney, this sunshine-soaked venue sits on the gorgeous shores of Terrigal Beach. Meribella is a lavish restaurant boasting a produce-driven menu with Mediterranean influences and a Head Chef with Michelin star cred.

Situated on the first floor of the Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific, Meribella revamps the classics by drawing inspiration from two key concepts: old-world European architecture and its primetime seaside surroundings. The sunlight-filled space is adorned with breezy, coastal tones, restored marble and luxuriously high ceilings to really show off those views.

Head Chef Joshua Mason heads the kitchen, using Michelin star cred gained at his time at acclaimed international restaurants like San Francisco's Atelier Crenn to craft a seasonally-inspired offering.

When dining in, you'll want to ensure you've got the barbecued scallops topped with crispy chicken skin, aged duck with beetroot and blackberry and caviar and gold leaf tart on your must-try list.

Other menu highlights include the creamy Balmain Bug linguine and the decadent chocolate crémeux cake accompanied by hazelnut and cherries, which pair beautifully with the restaurant's extensive wine list.

The venue is open for dinner throughout the week, with an additional lunch option on Fridays and Sundays.

If you're looking for upscale dining for a special occasion or are simply ready to splash your cash on a memorable dining experience, this sophisticated Central Coast gem is worth the trip.
