Pleasant return visit

As locals we thought it time to pay a return visit after some years. It was an enjoyable dinner for 2 in comfortable surrounds with a view of the beachfront. The service was efficient, if a little too brisk. A small share plate was heaped with succulent calamari, nicely char grilled. We thought it... read more

Were invited there by friends for lunch. Very tasty food, good service and decent prices. Had one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. If you're in the area, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed a high standard coffee at Blue Waters Cafe, we did not eat here so can't comment on the food. A nice place to watch Cottesloe's passing parade.

Sunday morning brunch could have been great but wasn't undercooked and took nearly 1 hr to turn up on the table. Wouldn't go back!

I dont even know where to start with this review. We usually go across the road to eat but always wanted to try this 'nice looking' restaurant.... so we did... NEVER AGAIN! Rude and arrogant staff including someone who was in the blue vest top on Wednesday (I think) who I'm guessing is a manager... if so, sort it out.... More

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
