Called in here without a booking with family of six of us. No problem accommodated quickly and professionally at lovely table. Seafood speciality dish was amazing. We ran out of time to return to try other choices from menu. Highly recommended.

We were planning on going here for dinner however between the customer service and the menu, we decided to only stay for a drink and go else where for dinner. The customer service we received upon arrival was very off putting. The servant was not very pleasant and made some rude remarks. The menu was very small and dull.

All compliments to the chef, cooks, bar and waitstaff. Not a single thing to critique. The seafood spaghetti is a recommendation to anyone looking for the Exmouth experience. 4 thumbs up.

Unimpressed by the wait time, my boyfriends medium-rare steak was served blue twice, and my vegan meal was topped with shaved parmesan. The drinks and cocktails were perfect and the staff were attentive and apologetic

It was my secons visit and it is a 'must go' restaurant in Exmouth. We had the seafood curry, seafood medley and the dessert platters. The seafood is super fresh and yummy. I always recommend this restaurant to my friends who are visiting Exmouth.

I had high expectations as many had told me it was the best place in town to eat. I was let down the steak was over cooked and dry and the water tasted like they got it straight out of the swimming pool

Went on Monday night and had a fantastic meal out. We started with oyster shots which were great and then most of us had the reef and beef which seems to be the star meal. A massive piece of tender and juicy steak topped with prawns in a creamy garlic sauce.. I mean... delicious! Two of us shared and the... More

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.
