Thank you for your comments, Our pricing is compeditive with similiar style restaurants in Perth, portion size is not normally a issue we have to deal with, in general people comment on them being too large.

We have been opporating the restaurant since 1984 and stive constantly to provide the very best products and service. The cost of operating in Australia and in particular Western Australia are some of the highest in the world

We take all comments seriously and will consider your pricing issues before we release our next menu in 2 weeks.

I hope you will take the opportunity to dine with us again in the near future, please make yourself know to me.

“Hard to Fault”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We went here on Saturday night 1/6/13, and all four of us on the table actually agreed that every morsel was fabulous. We decided to have the 3 course set menu as we believed that it was good value and we also had an Entertainment Card. I started with the soft shelled crab which was divine, others had the quail and the soup (all were equally good).For mains, most of us on the tabke had the wild barramundi which was moist and tender, with 1 of us having the fillet which was cooked to perfection. 3 chocolate cakes for dessert (which was very sweet and chocolatey but i love it like that!) and 1 fabulous trifle made for a fantastic and memorable dinner. Service could not be faulted, fantastic night time view of the river and city and the modern interior made it a definite to visit again!

“amazing location and excellent service”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Went there last week, just me and my boyfriend.
when we arrived we had a drink at the bar before being seated, the bar area is located by big windows, and when its dark you se the lights of perth city and also the marina a few meters away.

for dinner i ordered a stake with garden salad, and let me tell you, I have never in my life had a better piece of meat, felt like it would melt on my tounge.
My partner ordered a seafood platter (75$) was a little expencive, but the food was amazing
everything was fresh from the lobster to the prawns.

The service team was excellent, they knew when they were needed and did not hassle us at all.

It's not a cheap restaurant, but for special occations it is perfect.
