We went here few occasion for work lunches. It was great atmosphere, food... Service in few occasions it wasn't what we expect for what we pay as was new waiter staff and didn't know much... But the end result was everything amazing!

Great to hear Evelyn that you have enjoyed the restaurant on several occasions. Our current group of wait staff have been with us for a considerable amount of time. I am disappointed the person you were dealing with was not able to give you the information you required as all floor staff have to do regular knowledge tests and are... More

Finding the right restaurant to surprise and delight overseas business visitors isn't always easy, especially on a Monday night! Matilda Bay Restaurant proved to be a perfect choice - in terms of location, views, ambience, wine, food and service. As we were a group of 16, Angelo, the Executive Chef, met with me earlier in the day and, after listening... More

Went for a meal which we booked in advance and when arrived just the attitude was all wrong, don't get me wrong staff serving were polite and courteous but for what we had the menu seemed very overpriced in comparison to similar menus in Perth city only a 10 minute drive away. Location is great but for price it's over... More

Frank you wrote a similar review in February, I am dubious of your motives and surprised you returned and made the same comments. I have read some of your previous reviews and don't believe we can be compared to Miss Mauds, McDonalds and a fish and chip shop. Our menu and pricing is advertised openly on our web site. Should...

Had my 71st Birthday dinner her with my wife and two special friends. Beautiful food faultless service and an extensive and fabulous wine list. Don't dine here If you can't afford it, but if you can (thanks to my birthday) it's totally worth it. I am still drooling over the thought of my main course (Barramundi) a week later. Very... More

Even though this was a cool July day, sitting close to the sunny window was unbearably hot. Finally someone turned the aircon up . While the staff were pleasant, for a top restaurant there is obviously a lack of training. "Guys" is not an appropriate way to address diners nor is leaning across diners to deliver their orders. This may... More

The restaurant has a number of seating areas which we could have moved you and your guests to. We are constantly training our staff and have bought your comments to their attention at our twice daily briefing sessions. Our chef Angelo Nici has been with us since 1994 and has a stable team of long term chefs working with him.... More

I have been here for lunch twice in the last few months with my elderly parents. Both times have been very enjoyable, and we would recommend this restaurant. The view is spectacular, no matter what the weather, and sitting in the front of the restaurant with river views and the windows open is very pleasant. The only thing that would... More

Family lunch for 4, 'just because'. Service was terrific and the food was great as always. We all had steak and it didn't disappoint. The views are to die for and made a lazy Sunday lunch all that more enjoyable.

We visited a few times this month showcasing to others after our first visit in a long time. The meals were superb and the waitress was awesome. She even remembered things about our previous companion. Sunday lunch was fantastic. Venison steaks were to die for. We will be back
