Unpredictable

I've had amazing dining experiences here and I've had awful ones so I'm not sure what's the go. Have thoroughly enjoyed a 50th party celebration and then have endured a terrible meal at a girlfriend's birthday lunch.

I keep coming back here but really after the last lunch I don't I'll bother again. This time round the poor service started with my telephone call to make a reservation, talk about lack of interest in my reservation. I shouldn't have listened to my gut feeling that all was not well. The restaurant was not busy so no excuses... More

I will say this though, they have the best tasting decaf coffee around and their location is sublime!

Headed to Bunbury not knowing what to expect. Was checking out the port and Marina and saw Vat2. Drove past to see what else was around but came back. Lunch was beautiful. Had super fresh marron (in beurre blanc and wine sauce) and salad. Apparently it was so fresh it was jumping on the grill itself!! Was absolutely beautiful!!

Food average, service poor even though it was quiet and tables dirty. We had to ask for water. The manager was apologetic claiming they had a function that evening, however it wasn't busy at all. My husband ordered the veal Schnitzel and no salad very plain and overpriced with a fried egg on top.

Once again Vat 2 delivered a very high quality of food and service. The decor was lovely, service faultless. We have been going there for years,on and off and will continue to do so. Well done Jenny and staff especially Michelle.

Visited with my wife for her pending birthday. Seated within minutes of arriving and presented with assorted menus and glasses of chilled water. As we had not visited since last year, we played safe and ordered a shared entrée and a main each. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her crumbed fish, and my pork belly and barramundi serve was, I consider,... More
