I had heard a lot of good reports about Matilda bay and was not disappointed my husband had booked it as a surprise for our wedding anniversary.

We had a wonderful seafood dinner at this lovely spot for our anniversary dinner. The serving staff was very attentive, but not intrusive. The wine selection was interesting with good variety by the glass and the food was delectable. We had the "seafood platter for one" with a couple of entrees and that was plenty of food for the both... More

We had dinner here our last night in Perth. The food, wine, service and value for money was excellent. The views are also outstanding and I suspect even better at lunch time. Looking forward to going back next year when I visit Perth again.

It was one of the most brilliant experiences in dining. The soft shell crab was superb and bits (no actually a lot of it) got hijacked by others around me. :-( . The steak was tender and cooked just right and the service matched the food. In case you are wondering why this review is so short, it is to... More

I've been there on a few occasions and the food has been fantastic each time. The location is gorgeous right on the river as well.

To say our experience at Matilda Bay was special would be an enormous understatement. From the friendly greeting by the fantastic manager to the utterly delectable dining; this was a great evening. Ok, so it isn't the cheapest restaurant in the world but the quality of the food reflects this, with truly incredible steaks which have been aged in-house and... More

What more can I say. Had lunch with 16 ladies and we all had the set lunch time menu for $48. I personally thought it was very good value for what can only be described as an A La Carte meal. Having recently emigrated from the UK where I frequently ate in Michelin starred restaurants this restaurant is up there... More

It was beautifully set up for about 150 guests,, mostly family and close friends. Every table had a bouquet of roses. Cocktail was served before the dinner and the bride and bridegroom had a special table set for them. Altogether, a lovely experience.

I have just arrived in Perth and we went to dinner at Matilda Bay for the view etc but the quality of the service and building was very average. First - the service was slow. We mentioned it to the waiter and he did apologise but so what..and if your supposed to be a top restaurant (strangely they serve chips)... More

I am always disappointed when one of our customers doesn't feel we met their expectations, however I noted on your blog that there were 9 posing on the same day the 11th of June in 2 cities, maybe that contributed to some confusion as to the state of repair of the venue as after careful inspection of the carpet I...

A group of friends and I decided to spend a lazy sunday afternoon wining and dining by the Swan River. The location of the restaurant is great - the view from the big floor to ceiling windows in the restaurant stunning. This can't be said for the decor or the food. As it was a wet Sunday afternoon, the ceiling... More

I am sorry for the inconvenience caused by the water leak in your area of the restaurant you were in. The leak was caused by a broken tile on the roof that only became apparent when it rained. No matter the age of the building these unfortunate occurances can happen. Since taking over the restaurant in 1984 we have undertaken... More
