I decided to try this place as it was my first night in coral bay and was recommended from my accomodation. When I got there had to wait for about 5 minutes for someone to take my order and it wasn't that busy plus the lady who took my order didn't looked like she didn't want to serve me at... More

After a day of swimming and snorkeling, it was nice to be able to grab a pizza and a cold beer at this friendly Cafe.

If you order at 7:30 and eat at 9:00 you leave the place as an unhappy customer! And we didn't get what we ordered. Instead of vegies one friend got chips and salad, the other order was no rice or chips, it came with and the ordered entree size was on the bill as a main. The 10% discount did... More

We went here for dinner one of the nights we were in coral bay and it was sooo good. Fried Camembert and prawn starters were a bit pricey but flavours were delicious. Fish and chips and chicken schnitzel mains were among the best ever had! Schnitzel was huge and the mushroom sauce is yummy too. Fish was melt in the... More

We ate here most nights we were in Coral Bay and most of the meals were great! We had the seafood platter which was generous and wonderfully fresh local seafood! Another night we had steak which was perfectly cooked and a very generous portions, as well as garlic prawns which were again, perfectly cooked. The service was great, the waitresses... More

We grabbed a bite a the Ningaloo Reef Café earlier this month, it was recommended to us by a friend who has spent a lot of time in Coral Bay. The menu is small, the service is great and the food is really good. We had the pizza and it was delightful and did not go to waste. Excellent spot.

For the price I expected more, fish and chips was very average and I was expecting better as we were in such a good location for local fish etc. Food took over an hour to come out and it was not that busy and they did not bring food out in order of customers orders. I would suggest if your... More

An amazing feast and exceptional service also. Staff were all very friendly and happy to chat a little when they weren't busy. We ordered the duck spring rolls which come with the tastiest dipping sauce ever. Also ordered the seafood platter for 2. It was huge!! All of the elements on the plate were exceptional, but my personal favourite was... More

Pizzas were amazing and great value. They had a family pizza meal deal. Waited 45 minutes on a Friday night, but worth the wait.
