We had a lovely meal here. We were advised to book, and we were glad we had done so as even on a mid week evening they ended up fully booked. We needed to find a restaurant that had fish options, and also vegan options - not an easy task in Exmouth, but Whalers catered for both requirements beautifully. Service... More

We expected good things and we weren't disappointed. the service was great, the food well presented, good portions-not too big and the quality excellent. The place ran like a well oiled machine but had a relaxed atmosphere.

We enjoyed this place twice. First time we went with just our family the six of us and we made booking that day so our time of eating was a bit late because they were busy and I can see why. We enjoyed walking to this place from where we were staying and enjoyed a lovely table inside ordered some... More

This Restaurant would be as good as I have ever been in.Great Menu, fantastic and well presented food, service A1, excellent wine list and try the Ale from Adelaide 6.2%, sensational if you are a beer lover. If you are in Exmouth make sure that you go there, make a booking, it is usually packed.

I can see why this venue is No. 1 in town. Friendly staff. We waited a touch long for our mains but we weren't in a hurry. One tip I'd suggest is move the microwave from its high position clearly in view of all guests. Also the menus and menu covers are tired, worn/frayed and a bit 'past their sell-by... More

Unable to get in one evening in school holidays we booked for the following night, which was evidently not as busy. There were some large tables, which may have slowed service, so the pace of the meal was very 'relaxed'. The Mexican entrees and seafood mains we selected were delicious.

Description
Whalers Licensed Restaurant is located amongst the landscaped gardens of the Exmouth Escape Resort. We offer the perfect relaxed dining experience to complete your visit to Western Australia's world famous Ningaloo Reef.

Liz Minniear and executive chef Paul Minniear have owned and operated Whalers Restaurant since 2007. In early 2014 they moved the restaurant from Kennedy st to the Exmouth Escape Resort where they can now offer a more comfortable, modern and lush setting for their diners' pleasure. They continue to pride themselves on fresh, honest flavours and source the finest local seafood, steaks and produce available.

Live music is a regular feature at the restaurant with solo or duo acoustic acts playing on the deck while you enjoy your meal.

Whalers also caters for functions including Weddings, birthdays and business functions which can be catered for off site or at the restaurant.
