I have been to VAT2 many times over the years - by myself, with my husband, family and in large groups. I think it is great. There is always something interesting on the menu. I particularly like coming during day so I can sit outside and watch what is happening in the little bay but today I had a sunset... More

We both had the Dunsborough scotch fillet . Absolute melt in your melt in your mouth. Good wine selection. Friendly staff. Nice ambience. Reasonably priced. The best bit is, when you book, tell them you would like a lift home, and they drive you home after dinner in a luxury van!! Awesome . Will be back.

The young man and woman serving us on Thursday 30 June were friendly, personable and professional. The food was great but the long wait seemed excessive, especially as we had children in our group. The meat in the VAT burger tasted very nice and high quality. The balls of cheese and macaroni had some spice which ruled it out for... More

Expected alot more from a supposedly "upmarket restaurant". 6 people, 3 courses, 11 different dishes. Out of the 11, three were satisfactory but nothing special. The other meals were bellow par. Soggy, deep fried entree, side serves of chips being the frozen variety and crunchy rice pudding were the least of our issues. Would never dine there again.

The staff really are good at Vat 2 I am just a little bit put off by the limited menu, so much so that on our last lunch visit we did not eat as we wanted something more than the Burger, streak norm, and I think Vat 2 should deliver this. I have had some good nights with friends at... More

Heard quite a lot about this restaurant and decided to give it a go. The meal was good but first bite caught me a scale of the red snapper. Told the waiter and the boss when paying but it seemed like it's ok? No apologies or action to rectify. Giving a thumbs down for this. Food was good.

Had a lovely waterside breakfast here, and was pleasantly surprised. Excellent service and the food was delicious. View is superb. A great way to start any day.

Visited Vat 2 for a birthday celebration. Great food, especially the Prawn and Chorizo Entre by young chef Ash. The dish was superb! Great mains as well. Great value for money!

What a great job they are doing! Truffle popcorn, so cool. As my daughter said 'funky' chorizo. Mmhmm. Whiting fillets and Fillet steak. Beautifully done. Staff great and thank you to the owner. Loved the 2001 Mount Mary Chardonnay and the Penfolds bin 138 with the steak. A great night out in a venue with a great vibe and knowledgeable... More

A place that takes 30 minutes to serve basic breakfast items when there are only five coupled tables being waited is below par by any standard. Add to the frustation of the wait was a 1970s sound track in the background. Who wants to listen to Motown past hits on a Saturday morning?? Not us. The food when it was... More
