Good food, service, ambiance

We were not sure about this restaurant but since we had not been marveled by any of the others in Coral Bay, we decided to give it a go for our last night. The ambiance was really nice, and the decor in the terrace with all the tiny lights was super. We had a huge pizza that was good and... read more

Was recently passing through Coral Bay for work I decided to have some dinner at Ningaloo Reef Cafe. They have a great atmosphere there with very friendly staff, the meal sizes are definitely quite generous and good value for money. Will eat there again when I'm back through.

We had dinner there recently. Food was well presented and well cooked. Staff were friendly and obliging. Not too expensive considering how isolated Coral Bay is. For a shared entree, 2 main meals, a bottle of wine and 2 ice creams $100.

The pizza here is good! Quite a busy cafe so it may be best to book in advance. No BYO but the staff are friendly and the menu is quite varied.

Thank you for your cooperation, friendly service to a family of four adults and two children, and then the following night two adults. The menu is varied, to suit most tastes and appetites, and very high quality food. You do a remarkable thing in such a remote area.

I and my boyfriend had dinner there last Sunday. I chose a pizza and it was good, he chose the fish of the day. Well I think 36 $ it was too much for that plate. Nothing special and he was still hungry after that.

This was probably our least favorite place. Maybe because there were a couple of groups and it was noisy. Food was okay. Place was very busy though. We didn't have a pizza so can't comment on those. Tables were a bit crammed in. Maybe we just got them on a busy night. A bit expensive like everywhere else in C.B..... More

A lace like this could get away with serving anything as there aren't so many places to eat in town and it is only passing trade, but they do a really good job. Food is eclectic and well prepared, service was friendly. All in all a very enjoyable meal.

My wife and I had dinner here and it was nice. My wife had the satay chicken curry which was tasty but not spicy so we asked for some chilli which the waitress got for us no problem. I had the fish of the day (emperor) with a Mediterranean salad. The fish was lovely, the salad average. The wine list... More

For $36 the Goldband Snapper "fish of the day" sounded promising but was overcooked and dry. The salad that comes with the fish was nice. The lasagne was equally disappointing and very bland. There isn't much choice in town so if you go here better stick to safe choices like pizza, battered fish, etc.
