The food in the Whale Restaurant is outstanding. The flavours are excellent and fresh veggies from the garden are wonderful.

Visited the Whale Restaurant for dinner after seeing a write up in the South Coast Good Food & Wine Guide. It was true to the word starting with delicious warm fresh bread with homemade herb butter to finishing with a choice of homemade ice-cream from local ingredients. We selected a scoop of the South Coast yoghurt & vanilla bean gelato... More

We thought we'd give the restaurant a try as the restaurant is part of the Whale Motel. The front office staff suggested we try the restaurant, we didn't have high expectations as they were obviously bias. The restaurant staff were friendly and not pretentious, which always impresses and their service was prompt. The composition of the menu was surprising for... More

Ate here on a Saturday night with our 3 children. Beautiful views over Narooma bay. Staff were friendly and attentive, and the children were well catered for with the kids' menus. Food was a little hit and miss: the flathead seemed rather well-done, while the lamb was delicious. Overall I'd be happy to return on our next visit; hope the... More

The inn and restaurant are on a hill overlooking the sea and the harbour. The tables have linen and nice silverware. We went for dinner and spent over two hours eating, drinking, and enjoying the spectacular view. I had a salad, quesadilla appetizer, kingfish as the main, and creme brulee for dessert. All were cooked/prepared well and very tasty. The... More

My son, his partner and I had a stunning meal at the Whale restaurant last week. We have eaten there several times now and each time are most satisfied. There was an A La Carte menu, small Daily Special menu with varied prices and then a Chefs Set Menu with 2 courses for $38 or 3 courses for $45 including... More

Our recent meal at the Whale restaurant was an enjoyable experience. Beautiful house smoked trout with great local produce. The spiced squid with capsicum and aioli excellent. Smoked rack of lamb a great flavour though a little overdone. The barramundi in a broth with fennel very tasty. A standout for dessert was the Turkish delight sorbet with an intense flavour.... More
