We ordered main courses only. One hour wait. I asked for mustard to have with my $48 Angus beef steak, which had 8 green beans on the side! The waitress said there was none. When asked by the Manager how our meals were, I asked for mustard and she said English or grainy?
My friend ordered steak well done which came out pink. My other friend ordered fish which was quite under cooked, they took it back,re cooked the same piece of fish and covered it in spicy chilli. Our bill for 5 people was $360. This included 2 bottles of wine but due to the poor quality of 2 of the meals we only paid for 3. So at an average of $70 a head it was very overpriced!

We went on a Saturday night for dinner, with a booking for 8:30. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived and we were sent to the bar for about 20 minutes. When we were finally seated, our main course took over 1 hour to arrive. The steaks were very nice, but the side dishes utterly disappointing. The restaurant is a mezzanine arrangement directly above the pub with live music - so it was quite noisy (this may not be so bad on other days of the week).
The staff were friendly and attentive, but all up our experience was average and the restaurant's prices are definitely on the high side. Won't bother to go back.

I have been here many times and probably had everything on the menu ;). The food is good no complaints except that they change the menu seasonly so if you go often in the same season you get the same choice. The service is great and the atmosphere is even better. You can have a nice drink at the bar before your meal and the parking is good just a short walk down the boardwalk. The only downside is the price. Due to its location and popularity the food is pricey and the drinks even more so. This is not a cheap night or day out however beautiful views.

We went for a "girls catching up" Dinner on a quite Thursday night.

The food was very good. We had two vegetarian mains and a quail. The creme brulee for dessert was divine.

The service was really good. in the background but attentive. We finished our desserts around 8pm but kept sitting til 11pm yet the waiter kept filling up our glasses with water quietly. This kind of professional service is (unfortunately) hard to find in Perth

Knowing how busy the breakwater tavern (just below the restaurant) gets on the weekend I think the experience can be very different on the weekend. I will definitely will return for a quite / fine dining experience on a mid-week day.

The bar / lounge on the outside of the restaurant is very nice as well. cosy yet sophisticated. good selection of wine and whiskey.

An up market restuarant should not be located above a noisy "pub" type venue - in this case the Breakwater Tavern. We could hardly hear eachother talk around our table of four. Service was somewhat slow. On te hup side teh food quality and presentation was good.
