Venison Virgin!

Wow! Neve tried venison before and was told by the highly efficient English waitress that the chef recommended that it be cooked medium rare. What a delight! It was perfectly cooked and made fillet mignion seem pretty tasteless. My wife had the short rib. Perfectly presented, but a little fatty... read more

Restaurant was located in Bay Area where many yachts were docked. Beautiful scenery indeed. Food presented looked gorgeous and appetising which did not fail. Ordered 4 mains, 2 entrees, 1 bottle of white wine came up to $300 which found reasonable give the up-class setting and excellent service. Worth a try if willing to splurge on a romantic dinner.

I wanted to take my parents somewhere nice for their 50th anniversary. This restaurant is great. The atmosphere is wonderful. It sit right on the swan river, overlooking the boats. The area around it is great for kids, and they also get a package to keep,them entertained. The service is up there with the top restaurants. Friendly staff, tables set... More

We have been to Matilda Bay Restaurant a few times and love the food. Last year we went and at that point in time they were very helpful as I was on crutches. The food was delicious as always and the atmosphere nice. With the lovely view of the water to add to the atmosphere. Great staff.

First time I had dined here, on the recommendation of a colleague. Dinner for three, business colleagues but who didn't know each other well. Well constructed menu and excellent wine-list and faultless service that was never intrusive or excessively obsequious. My barramundi was a little lacking in flavour, but maybe I am too used to wild-caught salt-water barramundi, so should... More

Matilda Bay never disappoints. The position on the river are breathtaking before you even sit down to eat. I organised a large group dinner, set menu, which can be fraught making sure everyone is happy. The staff were excellent and accommodated all of the dietary needs with the menu offered so there was no messy conversations at the table. The... More

I attended a function where one would normally expect average serves but was impressed with the quality of food, and service that I received while at the restaurant. I have been before and each time the friendly atmosphere, the quality of the food and the exceptional service has been of a very high standard.

With a birthday weekend planned for about 9 months (tickets to the Paul Simon/Sting concert purchased and accommodation booked on the foreshore in South Perth) the choice of a restaurant was a biggie. After reading heaps of Tripadvisor reviews we chose a restaurant in Perth CBD. That they were NOT open for lunch on the day could have been a... More

We went around Perth looking for a good restaurant for 2 years. As we have been working in Hospitality for ten years, we have never been satisfied. Now, we found the Best restaurant ever! The food was just amazing: the bresaola tasted as real Italian bresaola (nothing similar around), the wagyu steaks were tender as butter and cooked perfectly, the... More

We had a very expensive meal that consisted of just average food and service. The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We arrived a little before seven o'clock and there were only a few tables that were full. By seven thirty, all of the riverside tables were full. Apparently, we started with a server that was new....
