Beautiful meal, every bit was yummy, looked great, service was friendly and informed. My swordfish was cooked to perfection, my friends wagu was wonderful, vegies were tender, and our desserts were to die for. Not a single thing could've been done better

House grown vegetables and salad, local seafood and meat lovingly transformed by a very talented young team. This food would hold its own next to any great restaurant in Sydney or Melbourne. Simply stunning!!

The views The staff The menu The fresh, local produce And, because every dish is freshly created for each order, they have no issue with taking a bit from this dish and serving it the way you choose to coordinate your flavours. And did I mention the lovely, competent, cheerful and eager-to-please staff And the menu And the views And.......... More

Visited last night and thoroughly enjoyed the Aged Angus Eye fillet, with home made worcestershirs sauce and a variety of other sauces - cannot fault them. Top class

Dining at this restaurant was edifying. Before genetically modified foods. Before frozen then defrosted food. Food use to taste they way they do at the Whale Restaurant. The flavours that we experienced at the Whale re-aligned us with how it used to be, eating food when we were growing up. Real taste. Real flavour. That's because all the ingredients used... More

The view here is just spectacular, and I'm happy to say that my dinner was just as great! We were very well looked after, and it was lovely to see the front of house staff complimenting each other's roles so well! Highly recommended, will definitely be back!

We dined as a group of 4 for pre Valentines dinner. Great views and attentive staff. While others comment on paper tablecloths, it's no big deal they are only covering the linen and many big city fine dining restaurants do the same. Meals were fresh and tasty and a bit different. The lamb shoulder was very nice although first impressions... More
