We dined on a monday lunchtime for a family birthday. The food was wonderful, there was a good selection from the 2 course set menu. The menu was reasonably priced at $48 per adult and $25 for children. It was well over the top that we were charged $5 per head for tap water, there were 7 of us dining... More

The food here was delightful, everyone loved their meals, no faults at all. We had windows seats and thoroughly enjoyed the view of dusk on the water, having a wonderful time. Great cocktails, one of my fav things is trying new cocktails, and the one here was brilliant. The only let down was when my husband spilled his glass of... More

We went there on a Monday so the restaurant wasn't too busy. The service was very good and the food superb. There were 4 adults and 3 children so I did think as we had spent so much the tap water would be free. Sadly it was a stormy day so we could not take advantage of the lovely views.

Awesome! Great food, stunning scenery and faultless service. Very small wedding but tables looked great and outside gas heaters made going outside east.

Revisited here after many previous times, and they have the same exceptional service, great food and atmosphere as all the previous times. Amazing wine list! They have yet again proven why I think they are the best restaurant in Perth! Will definately recommend and revisit!

Lovely birthday lunch with my sister. Service superb and food delicious. I could not fault a thing! Loved the tablecloths....much better than he bare tables of a few years ago. We went during the week when it was quieter, so we were really looked after. I am somewhat surprised by some of the negative reviews because I found the whole... More

Had lunch for a belated Mother's Day luncheon. Bombarded with too many menus to chose from upon seating. It's confusing. Service was nice enough however when mains arrived, our side dish did not. 15mins later when when we were pretty much finished, it was plonked on the table without so much as an apology & still charged on the bill....

Positives - lovely view over the river, friendly service staff, plenty of parking if you are driving Negatives - food was awful. You can't put lipstick on a pig. Fancy presentation does not offset overly greasy, over cooked food. I suspect mine was put in fat that wasn't hot enough. I struggled with both vegetarian courses, my husband proclaimed his... More

Went to Matilda Bay for our anniversary. Ordered the crayfish . Was disappointed that it came on its own, apart from a small amount of dressing. It really needed a small salad but of course that was extra cost. Dessert was also expensive and nothing special, but the real disappointment was ordering Peppermint tea and then discovering a tea bag... More

When we complained to the manager he was rude and very condesending he told us that he thought it was a good table however said we could move but the... More
