On arrival we were greeted with friendly service. Our table happened to be outside, and it decided to rain, we were shifted to a drier spot with no trouble. Service was good. The meal was really nice, the reef and beef plenty of and enjoyable.

We had a great evening there. The setting and restaurant interior is nice. The food was great and the service was good too. However ensure that you book a table before you go or you might not be able to find a table.

Bustling atmosphere, craft beers, lots of wine choices, beautifully presented tasty food. Extensive menu. You could be in a major city from the quality standpoint. I went all three nights I was in Exmouth - gumbo, duck curry and fish and chips - all superb.

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.
