We really enjoyed our experience here. Food was great, little pricey but average price compared to everywhere in town. Great atmosphere and staff were really friendly. Also think it's good they were open in feb as most places were closed. We will definitely come back when we return to kalbarri for another holiday.

A place must to eat if you enjoy seafood. Love the rustic, casual look and feel of the place. Amazing seafood, a bit expensive but very good quality. The crayfish was to die for! The staff were very friendly.

A really alternative setting away from the beach but with wonderful seafood. No alcohol available so a walk back to the pub needed.

Thanx. Although we don't regard our selves to be expensive, I must point out that quality produce is not getting any cheaper to acquire. Maybe I'm wrong but I believe a self serve salad bar offers better choice and value to you than a few prices of salad and no choice if we were to supply it on the plate... More

waited for over an hour and a half for food and it wasn't that good or cheap. Take your chance if you dare.

Firstly thanks for coming down to visit our establishment . I am afraid you must have caught us on a busy night, although for this time of year you get quite a wait all over town, actually 1 hr during peak season I find acceptable, 1.5hrs is a little excessive but not all uncommon, we actually had one night we...

BYO is great and the atmosphere is relaxed. We ordered the seafood platter and shared it between 4 of us. A salad bar is included in the price of the food.

I revisited Finlay's for dinner. Haven't been here since I was a teenager and the food is still as good as I remember. Service was good, friendly staff and a real relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recomend to friends.

Was a little disappointed that the full menu was not on offer on New Year's Eve but it was a full house for them and was super busy! Very funky different rustic place to eat !

It was a great night and we are proud to have supplied the first family friendly new years celebration for our town, Many more to come. The band was great, the crowd was awesome. A big thank you to all who attended, appreciate all of the support. More

An experience, not just a meal. No table service but great, friendly, informative service when ordering. Lots of seating options, heaps of old collectibles to look at, menu caters to everyone, mainly fish/seafood but good steak and chicken options available. Great food and great relaxed dinner. Can't recommend highly enough.
