I have been to this restaurant for both lunch and dinner. The service was good and food as well. It overlooks the Bunbury marina and is very pleasant as the sun goes down. We spent New Years eve there, they past my expectations.

Our friends suggested this restaurant as they know the owners. Everything was superb. Food, wine, service and being right on the beach is amazing...loved it. Will be back !!

I live locally and don't usually review places in the area. But I was so cross about our experience at the Vat that I feel compelled to comment and hope the place will take note! I was so ebmarrassed to have taken visitors to the Vat. What price tourism? First I would say I have previously eaten at the Vat... More

We enjoyed the views of the beach and former inner harbour area from inside the restaurant although we could have elected to sit outside. The servings are generous and service was brisk and perhaps some might have found the wait staff too familiar and a little too assertive. The menu included whiting and as this no longer a common fish... More

Went for Breakfast and found it not to bad . You order Eggs on toast then add anything else you want like Bacon , Saug, Beans Mushrooms . There home made Hash Browns are to die for . So give them a go .

Stunning view to start the day, having breakfast with a friend. Stunning blue sky and water with a sandy foreshore was the perfect vista to eat a tasty breakfast to. I had the sweet potatoe and kale fritter with poached egg- yum

We've eaten here several times and it remains a favourite. Always good food at a reasonable price with excellent waterfront views. Great for an informal relaxing lunch or a romantic dinner.

Had breakfast here twice last weekend and chose the rye toast with avocado, chilli, lime and poached eggs both times. Such a delicious combination! So good to find a breakfast menu with innovative meals as well as the old favourites. Coffee was great and sitting outside by the water made it a great start to the day.

I've eaten here several times over the last decade so I'm willing to write this off to a bad day. However I felt compelled to review as several points of service were letting this otherwise aesthetically pleasing place down. In summary Vat 2 is a high-end restaurant located on the estuary overlooking a playground - a great spot for family's... More

I don't know where to start! We had the best lunch. The view, the price, the service (especially from Michelle), could not fault. Food was jus so yummy. We had the little pork dumplings. Just delightful. Compliments to the Chef. Good variety of choice as well. You have got to go there. Oh, free parking out the front!
