Great food and atmosphere

The food was fantastic... one of the best steaks of had! As always in Perth the service was average. By that I mean the waiters didn't seem too interested - If you're paying well for a meal I expect them to be enthusiastic.

I had fish the fist time not being a big red meat eater. Chicken the second visit--- very very dry and too big ( and I have a good appetite). My relative had the boozy mussels as a stater and said they were fabulous. I should have had them as a main course.

What do I mean by 'aggressive'? Just not 'soft'. Efficient enough but no charm. Steaks were excellent and all round meal was just right if not exactly cheap. But if I want to be well looked after I wouldn't return.

We came across this restaurant while walking around the waterfront... and we were an hour too early for dinner as they open at 1800 (6pm)... so for an hour we sat in their comfortable lounge chairs and had drinks while they prepared for dinner. The wines were good and though the whiskies were limited in number, the variety was good... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Others had been disappointed so we Di not have high hopes. However, the location is fantastic and the food and service were very good. Definitely a recommendation.

we went on a recommendation and were very happy. There is not an overly large choice, but what is there is varied and very good. My Wife had Kangaroo and I had a pork rib eye, a bit different from the usual chicken, chips and fish of the day. Our young lady waitress was very helpful and the starters came... More

We arrived for lunch after a day trip in Fremantle. We were offered a small table outside. When I asked for a chair to put my bag and my wife's handbag. The answer was a :NO"! They said that they did need the chairs and they were not enough. By the time we finished our lunch, the outside was not... More

The food was very good, although pricey for the standard. The atmosphere, with the view and the general ambience, was very good. The evening with friends was marred by the brusqueness of the head waiter. We arrived three minutes before our reservation time of 6-00pm and were told that we were early and to wait in the corner while he... More

We went for dinner, a group of six. I had heard that they do a great steak. I wasn't disappointed. A perfectly cooked 450gm T bone was delicious. The service was very good and all our meals arrived at once, well done. It's a little pricey when you consider a $42 steak, then a $4 accompanying sauce and another $6-$10... More
