Umina's beachfront social hub
Margarita Daze is a restaurant and bar located right on the picturesque Umina Beach, which is located around the bend of the beach from Ettalong (it makes for a lovely walk from one end to the other!). These guys specialise in cocktail and casual eats, with the menu featuring plenty of steak, burgers and lots of seafood. You’ll find live music at this beachside hangout on Saturday nights until late. If you’ve got a decent sized crew, this is a great place to come as there’s plenty of room to spread out and a variety of different indoor and outdoor areas.
The cocktail list is creative and we loved the Coconut Mojito and the Sun Daze (watermelon liqueur, peach and butterscotch schnapps… yum). They also do a mean Espresso Martini, which just gets us every time. While they don’t feature too prominently on the menu, the pizzas here are really tasty and fully loaded. The Prawn and tomato is a winner and check out the Seafood Platter for Two if you’re up for a treat.
