Excellent cafe in Coral Bay

Four of us went there on a Sunday night, not too busy but you can always book. BYO corkage a mere $4 Steaks were $40/45 but excellent. Dahl curry also got high praises. Deserts also very good. By Coral Bay standards not that expensive. But remember its an outside cafe and vulnerable in weather.

Lovely place for a spot of breakfast although some of the staff are obviously transient we did have a difficulty getting a cup of tea.

Great food, expensive (not for Coral Bay or Australia), and somewhat inventive menu. Desserts were tasty too. It's a good splurge. There was only one waitress when I went, but she was surprisingly efficient. Nevertheless, expect some waiting. It's probably the best restaurant in Coral Bay.

Loved Fins even the second time round, fresh fish & the sea food curry is to die for. Meals can take a little longer in peak periods but it is well worth the wait, they also do a nice reef n beef and fish & chips, all highly recommended.

We ended up eating here 3 times during our stay. We didn't have breakfast or lunch only dinner. Outstanding meals. Very causal as is all of coral bay. Make sure you reserve a table though, it can get busy at night time even if it looks quite by day. By far our best meals during our 10 day stay in... More

Coral Bay has a few options when it comes to eating out but we have found our visits to Fins Cafe - at Peoples Caravan Park - to offer excellent quality and friendly service every time. The food equals and even betters meals in some of the top restaurants in Perth. The fish 'special' ... grilled rosy snapper is fresh... More

Just one hundred metres from the rippling waves at Coral Bay beach . No walls . A blackboard menu including changing specials . Friendly and efficient service . Now I will tell you about the food. . Every mouthful of my seafood chowder was delicious and full of chunky pieces of fish. Next a curry chicken korma with crunchy vegetables... More

Friendly service - big meals - outside tables under awning . excellent coffee. Great breakfast place if you are slightly under the weather - very comfortable. Its not sophisticated but suits the relaxed lifestyle.

I'd take this chef home if I could ... The menu is fantastic from reef to beef or both! Have eaten here with my family 2 nights in a row, excellent service too, not sure how chef and his staff produce such quality dishes out of such a small kitchen and remote location... The seafood spaghetti with mussels, soft shell... More

We stayed in Coral Bay for one night and decided to eat a Fin's following a recommendation. We passed by during the day to book our table for evening and managed to have a sneak at the menu. The style is café-style with outside tables along the row of shops at night but the staff were very friendly and for... More
