Cannot fault the Vat for food or service, it's always good with both. Food is freshly prepared, not big portions, but emough. View over marina... one of Bunbury's best.

This is our favourite restaurant in Bunbury, so booked for dinner after a marvellous breakfast, which finished with a second coffee and a look through the newspaper provided by Vat 2. It is obvious the staff are well trained, with food and views to complete the perfect meal. We only survived the dismay from our 2 favourite dinner dishes, Tassie... More

Have dined at Vat 2 many times and the food has always been great and a lovely view etc but we always tend to book early for lunch or dinner now whilst not so busy as the service can be very hit and miss. I think that the problem can be solved by having only 1 wait person serving each... More

We dined at Vat 2 last night. Entree Oysters were ok. Main Steak which my partner had although cooked as ordered missed the punch, wondering if this Restaurant has Salt & Pepper as not offered. Had Cheese Platter shared. Best part of the meal.Over all Average. Way over priced.

We are Bunbury locals and my work takes me past this restaurant at least twice a day, so we figured we (my partner & I) should give it a try. We arrived the first time, stood at the entrance to be seated, waited for 10 mins, then a pleasant young lady greeted us, asked us what we needed (a table... More
