The weather was hot and the water brought to the table warm. They were very busy but not very attentive. The Moroccan chicken salad was lovely but the toastie boring. Milkshakes were ok, but unless you're happy to fight the flies for your lunch pick somewhere with an inside area that's not packed.

Nice location and consistently good food. Service is efficient and friendly and prices are consistent with Perth (on the higher end). Worth a visit if you're in the area.

We visited here with our mother who lives in Victoria for Coffee and maybe lunch. After being seated at a table by the hostess and her taking our coffee order, we were shocked 30 minutes later when a waitress asked if we would like to order????? We told her that we did order 30 minutes ago. After going to check... More

We had the dinner for two deal and we were pleasantly surprised. There was a large amount of food, it was absolutely delicious, especially the beef, and with two glasses of wine for only $60 for he two of us with shared plate, a main each and wine- couldn't fault it. The service was also excellent .

After giving this restaurant a glowing dinner review some weeks before, we returned for lunch and got off to a bad start. Our booking had been crossed off. Our order was mixed up and delivered to the wrong table. The barramundi substituted for swordfish was mushy and barely edible. On complaining, we did get an apology. That was definately our... More

We arrived from Singapore and went straight for dinner on Saturday. The three kids ordered from the kids menu and the portions were so generous. We ordered the special for two and had the salmon and short ribs. Both were excellent in quality and quantity. The entrees were delicious also. The service was wonderful. My wife and kids thoroughly enjoyed... More

Went here last Monday, ( ANZAC day public holiday) had read some very negative reviews especially about the servers, we had exactly the opposite experience - great service food was excellent - the 2 young ladies who served us were both attentive & friendly based on our experience I would definitely return

As locals we thought it time to pay a return visit after some years. It was an enjoyable dinner for 2 in comfortable surrounds with a view of the beachfront. The service was efficient, if a little too brisk. A small share plate was heaped with succulent calamari, nicely char grilled. We thought it great value. Mains of char grilled... More

Were invited there by friends for lunch. Very tasty food, good service and decent prices. Had one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. If you're in the area, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed a high standard coffee at Blue Waters Cafe, we did not eat here so can't comment on the food. A nice place to watch Cottesloe's passing parade.
