An experience that did not match the reputation, nor justify the price. Good atmosphere and service but the food was substandard. Chowder was bland, with background flavour of flour and with no evidence of a good quality fish stock having been used. Entree ordered without chillie came with chillie. King George whiting fillets were dry, stiff as a board and encased in an inedible thick crust. The accompanying chick pea and tahine just did not work. Dhufish was good quality but a small filet for the price ($48), accopanied by a miserable ilttle pot of half a dozen chips. The goat cheese, spinach and pine nut salad was very good. Limited selection of desserts, but creme brulee was exceptional with perfect crust (crunchy but not charred). For 3 people, two glasses of wine, one cider and soft beverage, the price of $350 plus was not justified. For that money I would expect some "wow factor" and it was just not there.

Had Good Friday breakfast here today with friends. Lovely service with a smile, even though it must be one of their busiest days. A warm welcome, excellent coffee and a great selection of brekky offerings. I'd recommend the eggs benedict but everyone around the table was more than happy with their selections. Not cheap, but good value. We will be back.

Have not been in Kailis for a few years.But like most places in Perth ,the prices are crazy.4 Barramund iwings.a small bowl of chowder,a few slices of tomato with feta cheese on it and a small bottle of fizzy water.....$66.We noticed in the shop part a Kilo of cooked prawns were$40 and one scallop in a shell....$3.50.I'm afraid the day of paying these prices in Perth because of the famous names are coming to an end.

The seafood is fresh and meals are superbly cooked and presented. Staff are attentive. Quality and service are somewhat reflected in price, but we've never left Kailis disappointed with a meal. Breakfast menu is very good value? Children are well catered to as well, with a children's menu and colouring in to do.

Hello Readers,

I was there with some friends for a Farewell party of a friend.

The atmosphere of the place is simple but clean, but do not expect a 5 stars restaurant, as you have no views and the space is limited.

I personally ordered a whole lobster that cost me AUD 64. Flavour was OUTSTANDING but size VERY SMALL (A Jumbo Tiger Prawn would have been bigger and cheaper). Also the side was just potatoes.

Deserts options were very good and sizes quite big.

Overall, we spent AUD 85 per head.

Service was OK and their staff good looking (specially one of the waiters attending our table).

ADVICE: Just plan where to park before you go as they don't have parking.

GU
