Food was pub quality . The only disappointment was the salad bar. It is set up... More

We have been regular long time customers, they have been making small changes that seem to be for their financial benefit & not looking after the customer. Not selling canned or bottled soft drinks, only tap drinks which are always flat & warm, not to mention over priced, $7 for a large coke, when you can go to the other... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch while in Esperance for the day. Staff at the bistro were very friendly and quietly efficient. A standard fish and chips meal and a BLT plus avocado were accompanied by self serve salad bar. The meals were delivered quickly and the smile was an indication of a happy staff member. Both meals were of... More

Left after a well cooked steak and salad, very content. Tried the local beer and was impressed. Happy to say i would pop in their again next... More

Tried the local fish and chips. Bronzie? Two huge pieces of fish and almost no chips. Cooked nicely. But at almost $25 it should be a given. Had hoped to be wowed hearing this place was the local hangout. I guess the point is that it's a small town. Maybe standards are lower? The bar /restaurant on the jetty is... More

It looked like a top place to call into around drinks time. Car park packed. Bistro was filling fast, & the friendly waitress suggested we book a table (we wanted a few quiet drinks first). First mistake, not quiet! But we managed. No WA house wine, disappointing. Back to our booked table for dinner. Very limited choices for vegetarian, woodfired... More

Very disappointed compared to a few months ago. Shark and CHIP, normally a generous serve I had 10 and my colleague had steak burger and chip he counted 8. Most disappointing meal I have at this establishment ever. You need to lift.
