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.

We had lunch here during our visit to Cottesloe. The food was very good, we both had risotto. However, the service was very slow. It is in a nice location and we were able to sit outside and watch the world go by. At $58 AU for two risottos and two drinks it was expensive.

Went here on a day trip to Cottesloe, had a lovely meal and bottle of wine. Both had the steak and both were cooked to our liking. We went in quite early and there were 'reserved' signs on many of the tables so we had to sit at the back - did have a little trouble with the sun going... More

This place has the potential to be good if it wasn't for the poor service and management. Plenty of better places in Cottesloe to eat than here.
