About Cerberus Beach House

Overlooking spectacular Half Moon Bay, Cerberus Beach House on Cerberus Way in Black Rock is the ideal spot to soak up the sprawling seascape, jagged red cliffs and golden sands of the beach. This bright beachfront seafood restaurant rocks a woodsy-chic décor, with bifold doors opening to reveal ocean vistas of the pier; while the downstairs kiosk delivers award-winning fish and chips. Settle in with a chilled glass of wine and delve into starters such as a trio of fish mosaic, kalamata tapenade, romesco salt and verjuice cream; before tantalising mains like sous vide duck leg, baby King brown mushroom quinoa and red wine jus. Perhaps fish of the day entices, with choices like whole flounder, caramelised onion, tomato ragu and salad; finishing indulgently with a dessert of crème caramel.

It does not get any better than this place -an absolute gem.....


Groovy spot for a celebration!
We arrived to find a full restaurant but our table by the window was waiting. Immediate friendly service, with water and drinks menu and our waitress, Emma continued to appear quickly to fill every need.. The nibblies arrived quickly- they were quite tasty, but the mains were outstanding - excellent fresh and tasty barramundi on a bed of creamy risotto, and tender lamb with delicious accompaniments. The side of young green veggies was delectable too, and we had more than enough. The wine list provided good choice and was reasonably priced. We had a few special needs, having both an elderly mother and a birthday girl and these were speedily and happily accommodated by our excellent waitress. All up, a really groovy venue for food, wine, great view and a memorable evening.


Quite impress with the restaurant.First you have a very nice view,unfortunately not all the table are near the windows,but we had a wonderful lunch last Sunday.The food is really nice,just a bit long to be serve 'approx 30 mins between 2 dishes',but as we were not in a hurry,it was ok.The Restaurant Manager is unfortunately not professional at all,but on the other hand the serving staff are really good.The mauritian guy,gives us a five star service that we were not expecting at all and the setting is really beautiful. Need to book for a dinner now.



Have you ever dreamt about seclusion, views as far as the eye can see and amazing food? Well reality is, it exists. On the coast line of black rock down in half moon bay sits a restaurant that exceeds your expectations on quality of food and service. Only 2 years old and a true gem to the local community, you have no idea on what you are missing. As a person who rarely repeats eating in the same establishment due to the ever growing industry, Cerberus has entered my heart and is the go to place for a quiet romantic dinner or relaxing lunch. Not only is it a beautiful restaurant on the upper level, take it easy and relax oh the golden sand after grabbing some fish and chips from their takeaway directly below. Perfect for any occasion and not to be missed


First time dinners, and I must say I was very impressed... a restaurant that I will bring my friends too!
