Food was excellent (my wife and I her sister wanted to lick the plate clean from their potato gnocchi entree). Views superb and service excellent. All ingredients sourced locally and suitable for families or couples. Would recommend booking during... More

We recently had a lovely dinner at The Whale Restuarant in Narooma. The food was delicious and staff efficient and attentive. The view over the mouth of the inlet is magnificent. Highly recommend this Restaurant.

The food here was simply delicious. The view was incredible. The wine list was superb. However, the real feature that makes this place something special is that all its ingredients are locally sourced. They even have maps showing where such ingredients are from in the local area.

Wow what a place... the creativity that goes into the dishes at the whale restaurant is something to be admired. I loved every single mouthful, and the staff were absolutely brilliant. Beautiful atmosphere. Only in Narooma 2 nights and going back tonight, it was that good!!

Stayed at the WHALE MOTOR INN in Narooma for a 3 day getaway recently to de-clutter. The entire experience was magical, and the WHALE RESTAURANT was the most delightful part of the trip. Apart from being a first rate restaurant, the Bar also does a small snack food menu as well, served in the most delightful setting overlooking the brilliant... More

Great Food at reasonable prices. If it's on the menu try the cured smoked lamb, or the 70 day aged sirloin.
