It's part of Ningaloo Reef Resort. We had dinner there twice because it was convenient. The adult meals were all very decent - barramundi, chicken Parma, steak. My daughter's spaghetti, however was rather disappointing - quite bland and lacked sauce. She was hungry after swimming...More

Very much anticipated having the chili mussels and chicken parmy! Unfortunately, no mussels (however the chef did offer to make chili clams), and the parmy was over cooked as were the cauliflower fritters. The saviour dish, however, was the lamb medallions. Cooked beautifully! Staff friendly...More

This is the pub/cafe/bistro at Ningaloo Reef Resort. Great atmosphere, lovely staff and a menu of bistro staples plus a couple of fun surprises. A place for a quick dinner or to sit all afternoon and evening. Definitely worth your custom when in Coral Bay.More
