Excellent dinner out

My wife and I really enjoyed the Whale restaurant it came recommended from our B&B host, she got us a reservation for a window table which looked over toward the ocean views. It was a shame the weather turned stormy but we still enjoyed the view we could see and had an excellent meal. Our servers... read more

Travelled to Narooma for a Hens party and the Bride-to-be is a foodie. I had to book the Whale Restaurant – they received great reviews. I now see why. Jen (owner) had been liaising with me prior to us coming to Narooma. Always pleasant and accommodating in every email. They set us up in our own private area, where we... More

Great food while you take in the brilliant views over the inlet and out to sea. It's the best place to stay while in Narooma, no need to go out to eat, as the restaurant serves delicious food.

Read reviews and thought we'd give it a whirl.....just fabulous👍 The food was exceptional, waitstaff were friendly and efficient, the view extraordinary. Very reasonably priced for a three course meal, a bottle of red and a beer. Would highly recommend😀

Really good food experience - I could have dropped a point for the size of the oysters, however after huge rain event in last few days no one can source the normal local oysters. However the salted lamb dish was divine (maybe Chinese inspired) & the sweet carrot purée, yum. My partner had pork belly with an outrageously tasty rhubarb... More

We were very surprised to find a restaurant this good in a small town like Narooma. Service was first class and food - amazing! Both our dishes (fish and lamb) were incredible tasty and the kind of food you'd expect from a high-end restaurant in the city. They use local produce and herbs grown in their own garden. Much recommended!

My husband and I both loved our experience at The Whale. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The entrée Artisan bread and pork belly were delicious. And we especially loved the main course lamb shoulder and the beef dish. We would definitely recommend stopping here when visiting Narooma! We will be back for sure!

If you want to treat yourself to good food in a wonderful setting on the far south coast, go to the Whale Restaurant. Booking is a good idea, especially if you want a window seat with ocean views. It is not cheap but the food, service and ambience is great. There are many places to eat in Narooma but the... More

Excellent food. Very well presented. Great use of "local produce". 👍👍 It could become expensive if you have 3 courses. Definitely for special occasions. Live original entertaining music on Friday nights.
