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....

The location on the shores of Matilda Bay looking back towards the Perth CBD is gorgeous in particular as the sun sets. The food was reasonable although you are paying a little extra for the view. The choice of wines including by the glass or carafe was OK, although more narrow than would have been expected for the food prices.... More

Had lunch at this restaurant. The pasta was divine, the food excellent in presentation and taste, cost reasonable for what you got. Service very good. The only downside was being sat at the glass window on a sunny day, GREAT view, but burning sun s maybe ask for a table out of the sun if you don't like the skin... More

Fantastic views of the Swan River's Matilda Bay (especially at night). Easy and ample night parking (but harder during day due to close to boat ramp parking and university). Very close to Perth and Kings Park in fact a nice walk from either for those that like the moderate exercise. Enjoy.

Just been to Matilda bay for the lunchtime special: two courses plus a glass of wine. Great value and the service was faultless. Would recommend this one for those with $$$ as well as the budget conscious. Only 10 mkinutes from the CBD with great water views.

First time back to Matilda bay for some time and did not disappoint. Food and service was great with tender and juicy steaks that were cooked perfectly. Not cheap but still value for money compared to some others.

Contrary to some of the other reviews my wife and I revisited Matilda Bay for her birthday and had a wonderful experience. We had a lovely view of the Swan river from our table near the window, The staff were exceptionally pleasant, efficient and helpful as was the Maitre d. We began the meal with what must be home baked... More
