Went here on a cold and rainy winter morning. Big breakfast hit the mark. Significant other happy with her eggs and spinach on sourdough. Coffee pretty good by Perth standards. But expensive, as everything seems to be in Perth. 25% uplift on Melbourne and Sydney prices.

Great location. Service was appalling - tooks ages to take our order and then they forgot two people's order so 3 of us had breakfast whilst 2 sat and watched. The other 2 orders finally came out by which time the rest of us were ready to go.. nary and apology given. The food itself was pretty un-inspiring. I may... More

Went for an all you can eat buffet breakfast and arrived early in their serving time. Breakfast had to be eaten in courses, bacon a course on its own, then eggs on their own, I never saw them at the buffet at the same time. Despite lots of people waiting, they we're bring out 5 cooked eggs at a time.... More

This is a lovely spot with views of the river but from the minute I arrived I was left waiting nearly 10mins to be seated, then I ordered my coffee and I had to ask for it over half an hour later, the answer from my query "we are quite busy". The meal was lovely but it was impossible to... More

We waited to be seated with not so much as a smile from the waitstaff who were too busy to even acknowledge us. We were then seated and given menus - we had to ask someone to take our order, we waited what seemed like an eternity for the food. All of the meals came out apart from one, 15... More

My wife and I recently biked here for a mid-week lunch. During the weekends this nice little cafe is very popular but we were able to get a table on the verandah outside, overlooking the beautiful Swan River, without a booking. The staff are young but efficient and very friendly and menu offers Tapas plus a range of mains including... More

I love the generous serving and the staffs were very polite and efficient. The restaurant is clean and lots of choices in the menu. Parking is convenient and Point Walter Reserve is just at the door.

Parents have lived in the area for decades so when I googled a place to take my Mum for dinner I was pleasantly surprised to see this restaurant now serving dinners late in the week. All I can say is this is one of Perths best kept secrets! Beautiful view over Swan River, great wine and beer selection (limited but... More

food was average, waiter was nice too us, management very bad, i could hear a lady next to me complaining the food smelt weird and returned it. Took 3 hours to get 8 tapas. the river view is quite nice. management is not trustworthy , they didn't accept entertainment card saying there was 'A misprint' and can't claim. Don't trust... More
