We left the Whale at the end of our meal uncertain as to what we thought of it. Bits were excellent, others ordinary, and overall things did not hang together well. Our welcome was fine, and the view from our window table pleasant. We skipped Entrees because none of the combinations appealed to us, and as we perused the Menu... More

Ok, you don't come here for the swish restaurant fit out or the city slicker service - you come here for the gorgeous view over the inlet in Narooma and most importantly the fantastic food. The chef really knows what they are doing. We came here for a saturday night dinner and had a window seat for a 3 course... More

We had a fabulous night here recently. A pre-dinner drink to take in the incredible view, with ambient live music in the background then a terrific dinner with an impressive wine list. The service was great, the host generous and the food delicious. The standard here is really high, and hard to beat anywhere on the Far South Coast. Narooma... 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

We went as a group of four our friends and want to make a change of venue. The location although in dark did not reflect the summer night views, so would have expected winter prices mid week !. The head waiter was great well presented well dressed, the waitress was not and did not make our wives feel comfortable, it’s... More
