Large meals

Old style service with huge meals. Just what you need after hiking, surfing and generally doing way too much. Situated near the foreshore so easy to find.

When you arrive at 7pm on Wednesday night, you don't expect to find a 100 person bistro full of patrons. But having been there, we understand why. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Its location on the Foreshore in the centre of town makes it easy to get to from many motels.

Standard pub grub with the addition of Wood Fired Pizzas. Bay Burger is a great $10 feed although they say this a bar meal I have seen people on tables eating this with others who have ordered from the bistro menu.

Rare to find a complimentary salad bar with a main meal so this was a bonus. Have had dinner here on the occasions of being in Esperance for work and it doesn't disappoint. Good value, nice service, comfortable setting and a wood fire to warm up after being outdoors!

Easy to get a table, service was quick and concise, salad bar is great. It was nice to sit next to the fire place and enjoy a glass of wine. Ambient noise can be a little high at times as the sports bar is not closed off from the eating area

Last went there 2 years ago and it's was terrible! The place was almost empty. During my last 2-day visit to Esperance in May, I had lamb shanks the first evening and rack of ribs the second and both were superb. They must have a new chef!!! Other than the fact that he/she's a salt nazi, the food was great... More

We enjoyed some good pizzas and wine (obviously Australian wine from the Margaret River area) in this really wonderful restaurant. Many TV-sets with sports and info kept us laughing and in good spirits. The restaurant was quite busy and reservations are recommended. Many families but also parties of 2 or 3. All in all we enjoyed a wonderful evening and... More

This is definitely the place to eat, we ate dinner last night and lunch today before we continued on our travels. Good quality, good portion size, hot food, great service and you can watch the footy if you like. Good atmosphere but you should book on a Friday and Saturday night, lovely water view.

Have eaten here a few times and have been consistently happy with everything. Most nights you can see the popularity as it seems very rare that business will be "slow" (and I see this because I drive past most days). The times I have been I have been able to fine something (usually multiple) on the menu that I am... More
