Visited here with friends for breakfast. The meals were ok but just average. I had a bacon and egg burger and it was pretty much what I got. Nothing special and $12. Probably could have got a bigger serving elsewhere but the view was magnificent. Service was good and I rate it as an average meal. You really are paying... More

Located in Kings Park with views over Perth water and Perth City. Set in the most idyllic garden setting of Kings Park. Very busy restraint providing efficient service and good food/beverage.

I am ashamed that this is the standard of a restaurant in such a prominent Perth location! The food is only average - the service is non existent and today when we went for lunch - the staff not only didn't understand English, (pecan pie - that's a tea, right!) none of the main course meals or the desserts were...

My start to the experience was to wait in frustration when the lady in front of me was ordering bread. Just bread. The girl behind the counter finally worked out what bread was and turned to the barista to ask if they had bread. The barista offered Turkish bread and the lady agreed. The girl then charged her $9 for... More

It is a great atmosphere and view along with some awesome food, we tried the pumpkin and feta pizza and chicken sate sticks, both were very nice. The views of the water and city scape are great

Went sightseeing to Kings Park and decided to have lunch here. Loved the view but the service was slow and not at all friendly. The food was very very average. Wouldn't go again, would bring a picnic basket and sit on the lawn.

We didn't come here for food but for view, thanks God!! Service was really poor, waitress was really moody, our drinks came after our food came and that was after we asked for them. Food was really tasteless and overpriced for what it was. Fortunately views and nature were amazing.

It's a shame the Cafe staff are taking advantage of the wonderful location and lack of competition. Quality of food and service is very poor. The waitress at the counter was rude, vague and plain unfriendly. The salads we ordered were not great. A very large piece of haloumi barely grilled thrown on top of a pile of rocket, no... More

One reason that this restaurant is good for people watching is that there is often a long line for ordering. Avoid at the usual lunch hour! Walk in, find a seat and grab some menus, then send one person up to stand in line and order. The food will be brought to your table (they give out numbers on sticks).... More

Stupidly overpriced for the quality of food. Over $4 for a small Lemon and Lime Bitters. $20 for a burger and fries, with a frozen supermarket meat patty, soggy bun and over cooked fries. Definitely one to avoid.
