From the moment you set foot in the restaurant to the final moments it's a breathtaking experience. The view is unbeatable, the service is friendly, and the food is otherworldly. I had the gnocchi with mushroom ragu which was incredibly delicious. The eye filet for main was tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. The strawberries and cream dessert and the... More

Fantastic views over the town and water from balconies. The large apartment-style rooms are beautifully appointed. Make sure you request a renovated room as refurbishment is still in progress. Hosts and staff are helpful and considerate - up there with the best.

Its not often you go to a restaurant and everything from being greeted to service, food and expectations are met. Well done. We'll be back again.

Service was ok and then it went terribly downhill from there Had sour dough and dips, foraged salmon and oysters with smoked ham as entrees unfortunately the salmon was unedible and used as one of the dips. Mains were very overpriced and very small with a mismatch of flavours. The potato salad was underdone and the beef that went with... More

If you want to be sure of a table with a view be sure to book. Menu offers a fair range. Recommend house made dips with sourdough bread. Wife enjoyed fish. I ordered duck which I thought was probably tarted up a bit much. Would have been better if a bit simpler. Good wine list and excellent service. Tried this... More

The head waiter was great well presented well dressed, the waitress was not and did not make our wives feel comfortable, it’s... More

Well what a lovely surprise. We live locally and were looking for a nice venue to take son to for his 40th. My hairdresser who has her business kin Narooma gave the Whale a great rap and I can understand why. The service was great, with the wait staff ensuring our glasses were topped up with water/wine and cleared used... More

Recently a group of friends visited the Whale Restaurant and had the best local meal we have had for a long time. The service was fantastic, friendly and helpful. My partner is a vegetarian and normally has a choice of one dish however special effort was made to accommodate Susie. Thank you Matthew for making our experience such a pleasurable... More

The food was very good, very fresh sea food (try the oysters... More
