Had lunch here for my birthday. The food and service was surprisingly good, and I will definitely recommend SeaChange for its extensive and delicious menu. I'm a vegetarian, and I was very happy with my meal.

Never had a bad meal here! Servings are generous which offers value for money! Staff are great and my favourite is the Californian with the salmon!

Excellent food and service. Very fresh and caters well for children. My husband had the largest salmon portion he has ever had at a restaurant and it was delicious. We also had a 4 year old with us and his meal was delivered promptly. All...three of us ate and drank everything. I had the garlic and cheese turkish bread. Yum. Definitely recommend.More

Best food for miles! Always friendly and prompt service, large menu choice with some meals hard to match elsewhere. Views and location second to none. Constant lines to get a seat is your best giveaway and it’s the busiest on the whole strip. Recently renovated...and highly recommendedMore

You get a sense a lot of locals come here. As a local myself, I only order the same thing - it has the best fish and chips. More expensive then the fish and chip shop down the road, but its worth every extra penny....They do takeaway so I only sit and wait for my order. Most times, the staff are great and offer water whilst you wait, which is a really nice touch. Sometimes the staff are too busy bickering, behind the counter, but with sea breeze and a nice cozy vibe. Its a great place to try.More

We enjoyed our visit to Seachange. Generous servings and very well cooked food. I yearn for intelligent informed staff who can string a sentence together, not the case here. I don't like being referred to as youse!! The place needs a bloody good clean. The...glass doors and windows were filthy. Hadn't been properly cleaned despite assurances that in these times it would have a good going over before re-opening.More

Great location near the beautiful Dee Why beach. Busy cafe with very robust menu - something for everyone. Portion sizes are very large so consider sharing something with someone. Lots of dogs enjoying brunch with their humans as well.

Whenever we eat here I always think why did we leave it so long. The food is just amazing. My favourite is Portuguese chicken salad which is just a taste sensation with so many different flavours going on in your mouth. The serving a generous...and the place is always busy with so many people coming back. Highly recommended.More

Food is still delicious, extensive varied Aussie styled Menu at fair value but service could do with more professionalism. Had a business lunch which we all enjoyed, location excellent, ambience bit busy & noisy and seating plain & hard - still worth a visit for...casual meals.More

New owner has introduced a surcharge for credit card payments. Obviously doesn’t care about the customer experience. Very disappointed ! I will be going to the other cafes now along DY beach that dont charge this fee.
