Great food. The tacos are reasonably sized though not enough that you don’t need a few of them. It can become quite expensive very quickly if you’ve got enough of an appetite however the tacos were good enough that the price is a little more justified ($6 for one)

Love SoCal! It's a great spot for casual dining and the food is consistently fantastic. One thing though - it can get really noisy so if you're looking for a catch up with good conversation, go during the weekend when it's a bit quieter.

Excellent food and very friendly service. Very laid back atmosphere and eclectic decor.

About SoCal Neutral Bay

SoCal, SoCool. With its beachy feel and zippy fare we wonder if SoCal should be renamed SoCool. Serious food for thought. If you thought Sydney had reached saturation point with hotdogs, sliders, tacos and margaritas - think again. The American food craze is far from over. SoCal is just another easy breezy eatery that has modernised and rehashed the American style cuisine to suit Aussie palates. Owners Ben Carroll and Hamish Watts have taken inspiration from the Southern Californian coastline for their Neutral Bay haunt where it's all about flash tropical cocktails and fresh, healthy food with a strong Mexican influence. This sandy, sorbet-coloured beach oasis is just a hop skip and a jump away from Military Road and is delighting many northshore locals with delicious dishes and to die for cocktails. The Salted Caramel Espresso Martini’s might jump out at you from the menu (it certainly did for us) but the Mexican Margaritas and Mezcal cocktails are what you want to be sipping on, we’re spruiking them as No.1 and No.2 cocktails on the menu - easily. Best dish: kingfish ceviche
