Description: Whalers Licensed Restaurant is located amongst the landscaped gardens of the Exmouth Escape Resort. We offer the perfect relaxed dining experience to complete your visit to Western Australia's world famous Ningaloo Reef. Liz Minniear and executive chef Paul Minniear have owned and operated Whalers Restaurant since 2007. In early 2014 they moved the restaurant from Kennedy st to the Exmouth Escape Resort where they can now offer a more comfortable, modern and lush setting for their diners' pleasure. They continue to pride themselves on fresh, honest flavours and source the finest local seafood, steaks and produce available. Live music is a regular feature at the restaurant with solo or duo acoustic acts playing on the deck while you enjoy your meal. Whalers also caters for functions including Weddings, birthdays and business functions which can be catered for off site or at the restaurant.

We tried 5 different venues, and this was by far the best with a good selection of seafood. Very popular so bookings recommended.Currently awaiting their liquor license so BYO until then.

Recommend booking in advance as Whalers seems to get booked up quite quickly. We were "only" able to get an outdoor table, but it was much nicer in the evening by the pool. The staff were really friendly and attentive, food took a little long to come, but it was decent sized and had no complaints. The gumbo was good!... More

After driving from Perth to Exmouth this restaurant was an enjoyable experience. We had difficulty up until Whalers finding FRESH seafood in the Coral Coast region. My friends enjoyed their meal as much as I did. Definitely make a reservation. We booked some three days before arriving in Exmouth.

Excellent service and wonderful food. He had the fish of the day (to DIE FOR!) and I had the seafood spaghetti (delicious but didn't knock my socks off). It is BYO and you will need to book.

Our family had a beautiful meal at Whalers. All four adults had seafood dishes (gumbo, curry and marinara) and they were all fantastic. The restaurant was full and had a lovely vibe.
