Very special meal for my wife's 50th birthday

Wow, what a fantastic experience. The food was awesome, starting with the coral trout entre special through to the kangaroo loin and crispy sqid and goats cheese salad mains. Christina's excellent service rounded out the experience, along with the outdoor dining aspect. And we also loved the... read more

We were recently at Whet restaurant and our experience was less than enjoyable to say the least. My husband ordered the 'Grilled lamb pita with mint, tomato & red onion salad, yoghurt & chips' ... this started our terrible experience. Anywhere in the world, lamb pita consists of actual lamb, either roast or slow cooked. Pita is the actual bread... More

We stopped here for lunch. It has a good menu, not over priced, excellent service (really friendly too), and the meal was delicious.

It has a slightly quirky feel to it and that made me anticipate a good night at Whet, and it was. Dining out on the huge deck among the trees, was lovely and even though it was busy, the tables still had a certain intimacy. Staff were fantastic, food was really good. Waiting time was a bit longer than I... More

As it's written in the title the food is nice the place relaxing and the service very friendly. The only thing I've noticed and upset me a bit was the 1$ charge is you want any sauces (tomato sauce aioli...)

After reading all the reviews here I was excited about enjoying dinner at Whet, however I found the experience somewhat unmemorable. Don't get me wrong, it was perfectly fine, and there was nothing wrong with anything we ordered, but it was hardly the 'to-die-for' cuisine that reviewers have posted about. But given the extremely limited options for dining out at... More

This place is perfect! Awesome setting, perfect service and delectable food. My husband and I had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and the food was absolutely delicious each time (4 times all up!). It is a place NOT to miss for anyone going up to Cape Trib. Very strongly recommended, big thumbs up for the waiting staff and the chefs,... More
