99% of the time I don't bother to place negative comments on Trip Advisor. My focus is on sharing positive thoughts and recommendations to give back to those who have provided good service. So this means me bothering to write this = it was really bad more than twice! I'm in this area a lot & kept going back hoping... More

We had lunch for four, all the food was excellent, I had the Pear and Haloumi salad with the largest chunks of Haloumi I have ever had. The Salmon was simply superb, fries were also great. The fries were also appreciated by a real "La Gazza Ladra" who flew right in under the awning and helped itself to a large... More

You can't beat the location on a lovely sunny day however I was very disappointed with the food. We had the steak sandwich which at $19 was a reasonable price. Sadly it was very sparse on filling and the bread was so hard my palate is still ripped from biting into it. Such a shame. The chips on the other... More

the River Cafe has a great location on the banks of the Swan; the quality of the food is very good but the front of house delivery compromises the enjoyable dining experience with underresourced staff and an inability to correctly record an order.

Since we had our wonderful wedding reception at Walter's Café, it was an appropriate place to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. But reading some of the realty negative reviews we had some concerns. We needn't have worried - this Perth riverfront institution was as good as ever. We went for lunch on Queen's Birthday and were notified before we booked... More

I read the reviews before we went and shrugged off the idea of poor service, after all anyone can have a bad day. Perhaps I should have thought for a little longer. We met at the cafe at 10.30 today with some friends and were shown to a table jammed against the chair backs of the adjacent one. OK no... More

Having taken the scenic walk to Blackwall Reach, my wife and I decided to call into Walter's River Cafe for a quick bite to eat and a drink. The beer battered fish and chips was first class. The service was excellent, polite and efficient throughout. A bottle of the Wirra Wirra Mrs Wrigley's Rose was a great accompaniment to a... More

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
