What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours but here on a lazy Sunday lunch. My wife and I had a couple of share plated to start and dessert. The share plates were excellent as was the cheese platter for afters especially on the cheese platter the marinated fruit which was great with the sharp cheeses. The wait... More

The location is really good, overlooking the beach and the ocean. Service though is at most average. Really a pity since it has so much potential.

Was at this cafe after a morning of chilling at the beach. Ordered the calamari, chips with aioli , chorizo and snapper linguine. Generally the food was fresh and the seasoning spot on especially the aioli and the calamari. Snapper was slightly over cooked but still well seasoned. Linguine however needed a bit more salt. Servicewise, they could do with... More

Blue Waters has a nice location where you can e the ocean over the car park and a lovely sunset if you time your meal right. They have a different approach with their menu, offering a range of big and small share plates that you can order. They do advise that they don't come out in any particular order our... More

We've been here many times over the past couple of years and the quality of the dishes has been going downhill. There is so much potential but the dishes always manage to just disappoint - just be average and not super flavourful. The portion sizes are massive. In fact, they just changed to a "share" style menu but even still,... More

For us the stand out dish was the beef carpaccio with Manjimup truffles. The fact that the carpaccio was seared on the outside came as a bit of a surprise, it also was sliced thicker than usually. Quite an innovative take on a classic dish. We were blown away by the flavours: tender and tasty beef, a generous amount of... More

Visited with a massive group of family. We had some amazing dishes and a very obliging waiter who advised us on specials, recommendations, etc. Very pleased with the experience. Photos attached.

I wanted to try the restaurant as I read it was run by Michelin star chef Steven Black. We arrived for a midweek lunch and the restaurant was two thirds full...with only one wait person. The pool girl was greeting diners, taking orders, delivering food, answering the phone, working the bar, making coffee etc etc. She was doing EVERYTHING except... More

We waited 15mins to order that was OK but after ordering it took another hour to receive our wrong order of food! Not worth the $$$ for waiting the service!!

We had an early morning breakfast before going across the road to see the sculptures. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu had a good selection of items. Our choices were excellent and exactly as we expected. The only downside is that the food and beverages are quite pricey, even for Perth.
