Just got 2 takeaways from Black Pearl.. At $15.00 each would expect more then half a container. Tasted nice but to much ham and not enough pasta. Still hungry going for pizza... That was the biggest rip off ever. Complaining to the owner never got us anywhere he just made excuses.

tried Black Pearl once only.
found it pretentious and overpriced.
salad was gritty, batter on fish was non-existant.
overpriced, even for Broome.

We went to this restaurant on a thursday evening (pasta night). Great place to sit outside on the terrace watching the Staircase to the Moon while having you meal. The main was very good, very tasty. But after clearing the table, we waited and waited to get the dessert menu, and none of the 4 staff came to ask if we wanted anything else. We noticed that a german couple around the corner was in the same situation; they eventually had to call someone to get some attention, so we did the same thing. Pretty poor service considering. So if you go there, ask for service, don't wait for the young staff to notice anything.

Out of the way restaurant near Oaks Resort. Had Sunday night roast and was good value, although only average quality, but can't complain for only $18. Staff very friendly and attentive. Dessert was excellent.

Went to dinner at The Black Pearl after stumbling on it during a drive around town. It's a great, tucked away spot, which seems to mean it doesn't get the same volume of tourist traffic as other places in town or on Cable Beach. Yes, it's pricey but that's Broome for you. I had a prawn and scallop pasta that was one of the best meals I've had in a long time - it was a stark contrast to an incredibly disappointing meal I'd had at the Old Zoo Cafe. Service was also great and the wine selection good. I was so impressed I went back a couple of days later for breakfast and had a fantastic eggs benedict. Can't wait to get back there again!
