Thank you, Matilda Bay for such an amazing experience. I was lucky enough to have my wedding day here, and as the groom, it was a beautiful wedding ceremony on the river shore. The set up was lovely; which had all our family and friends close together to celebrate our special day. Once at reception, we were delighted to see... More

We visited this restaurant n a Friday afternoon, which was busy but we recieved professiona and personal service by waiting staff. We chose a lunchtime special which was crayfish. It was well presented and we ordered an additional side salad to accompany it which went well with the crayfish. Th ambience was delightful, being right by the harbour and a... More

In response to your earlier reviewer Paul, we were the stupid wedding planners. As with most functions , some people unfortunately have their backs to the top table. At this function guests at other tables also had their backs to the bridal table and did not complain. This included some of our family. We considered it more appropriate that family... More

Here for a wedding. We started with a drink down stairs and the barman was very polite, patient and helpful whilst I worked out what I wanted to drink. Canapés were nice. Upstairs at the wedding function, we enjoyed the meal - we both had completely different things. My steak was very tender and the gravy rich and delicious. I... More

We attended Matilda Bay for an early meal and were surprised at how popular it was. Arriving before 6pm the restaurant was two thirds full within 15 minutes - clearly other people had similar ideas to us and wanted to enjoy the outlook. All tables have a view over the river to the Perth CBD skyline to the east and... More

For consistently nice food this restaurant is hard to beat. Always fresh and tasty. In addition the ambience is great. Located on the banks of the Swan River at Crawley Bay it overlooks the river beach and the moorings at Yacht Club. Lovely spot with splendid food. Five stars.

We took our hosts out for a "special" meal on a Monday evening. The setting is very good and we were given a table with a beautiful view over Matilda bay. The service was good, but not very attentive - we were at the end of the terrace. The real disappointment was the food, first the steaks, which at the... More

We had a late Sunday lunch there. We had not made a booking and we were seated at a great table near the window, Lovely view, delicious food and good service. They do a decent Pinot Grigio. Their prawn dish with the whipped sweet potato purée. red onion, etc is great. I'm also told the seafood pasta is good. The... More

We visited twice...both for Sunday lunch 14 Oct 2016 and 26 Feb 2017. We booked ahead and on both occasions were seated in a booth, enjoyed clean, crispy food and were happy with the service. The restaurant is pram and wheelchair accessible. It's a lovely venue for couples and special occassions. Plenty of parking available. 10 minute drive from Perth... More
