I had a great experience at Vat 2 quite a few months ago and thought it must be on the improve again. Sadly after another recent visit, I need to recant that opinion. I went a few days ago with some relatives (including 2 children) to have coffee and cake and again the service was a big let down. Our... More

Five of us went there for lunch on a Saturday early in summer. We sat inside, but if the air conditioning was on, we couldn't feel it. The temperature was fine for the first hour we were there, then it got quite hot and humid and uncomfortable. The views over the waters of Koombana Bay were lovely. We started with... More

Great location for a catch up or a coffee - no good for lunch - it took 30 miniutes to get a dring, then an hour for the food to arrive. Food orders are taken down on scrap bits of paper - a beeter system would improve the meal delivery times here. And the prices are pretty high, which you... More

The street food menu for dinner is great to share with a couple of people- the springs rolls are really good! The salads and cocktails are also great! Breakfast is really good- the pumpkin omelette is a definite plus.

We visited the Vat2 last week for lunch on a bright sunny day. We were given stable on the verandah out of the wind with stunning views of the Bunbury Inner Harbour. Service was great and the menu had something good for everyone. Our meals didn't take long and were delicious. I can recommend this restaurant.

Price is where it should be at $10 for small plates, Entrees around $15 -$22 and mains from $18-$45 The restaurant is modern Australian in cuisine and has a modern relaxed atmosphere. The Restaurant seating has several areas from the Main Restaurant area with traditional... More

The title says it all. This is, hands down, the best restaurant in Bunbury. In the past four months (since moving to Bunbury from Sydney), we have never had a bad experience at Vat2. Our first experience was just as good as our most recent, and we have been a few times. The food is always cooked fresh and tastes... More

I had expected a lot more from here and was very disappointed. The pizza bread wasn't cooked properly. My burger, I had to chase thru the salad and stodgy Turkish bread to find it and then nothing special for $20. While clearing the plates the waiter spilt ceviche juice in my wifes lap and then just walked away,didn't clean up... More

After a very long time I found myself in Bunbury so I thought I wonder if the Vat 2 is as good as it use to be, dropped in for breakfast greeted by a young lady who was just bubbling with joy, prompt service, asked if we wanted tea/coffee within 1 minute, the breakfast was as good as I remembered,...
