Decent seafood restaurant with atmospheric outdoor dining

We came here a couple of years ago on holiday and were impressed. We came back on a Valentines weekend in Kalbarri recently and once again were impressed. There aren't many decent eating options in Kalbarri for dinner, so this restaurant stands out in that sense, even if it is a bit overpriced... read more

This restaurant has a lovely location and we recommend the tables on the balcony. Service was quick, staff were charming and attentive and the food was delicious. The menu and specials contained many good choices and the fish dishes were especially good. We would definitely go back again.

Thanks to the upstairs restaurant for providing a great meal , with great service.. the main meals are very filling and the sweets are to die for... so tasty not bland at all... all the good reviews speak for themselves. Table service is of the highest standard.

took my girlfriend there for valentines day and it was a total let down, our steaks that we ordered as medium were burnt, and the service was terrible, it took them 30mins to bring us a cocktail and a beer

We dinned there for valentine's day after seeing so many wonderful reviews online. Got there and was less than half full. Took 15 mins to be offered a drink. And took another 25 mins for a cocktail and beer to arrive to our table. Ordered a steak (medium cooked) came out well done.. basically cremated!.. ordered a mousse for dessert... More

On a recent visit to Kalbari we stumbled upon a little place called Restaurant Upstairs. We hadnt booked but they found a table for us and were quite gracious about it. Surprisingly considering where Kalbari is situated and the average visitor to the region are tourist the fare was quite upmarket. Wendy had the seafood and I ordered the double... More

Quality service and great food, albeit expensive. The place was pretty quiet so we were seated straight away, on the balcony with a view, and got served our meals reasonably quickly. For food we got an entrée of garlic bread and garlic scallops, the garlic bread was nothing special (I wouldn't recommend wasting money on it) but the garlic scallops... More

My wife and ordered grilled red emperor which was freshly caught that day. The Fish was superbly cooked and the choice of salad, saffron rice and accompanying sauces complimented the meal. Finished with a desert of sticky date pudding which they are renowned for . Cost for the meal including a glass of wine approx. $100.00

this was one of two restaurants we went to whilst in Kalbarri. This is probably the only proper restaurant in Kalbarri with the others more tavern or pub like. One of the things that I liked was the sign outside that stated that they did not provide children's high chairs or children's menu. That got a tick from me! The... More

Wow! What a gem of a place. The chilli mussels mediterranean style were nothing short of spectacular, as was the steak, oysters and red emperor selected by the other diners! Worth the trip from Perth just to go to this amazing restaurant!
