Description: Whalers Licensed Restaurant is located amongst the landscaped gardens of the Exmouth Escape Resort. We offer the perfect relaxed dining experience to complete your visit to Western Australia's world famous Ningaloo Reef. Liz Minniear and executive chef Paul Minniear have owned and operated Whalers Restaurant since 2007. In early 2014 they moved the restaurant from Kennedy st to the Exmouth Escape Resort where they can now offer a more comfortable, modern and lush setting for their diners' pleasure. They continue to pride themselves on fresh, honest flavours and source the finest local seafood, steaks and produce available. Live music is a regular feature at the restaurant with solo or duo acoustic acts playing on the deck while you enjoy your meal. Whalers also caters for functions including Weddings, birthdays and business functions which can be catered for off site or at the restaurant.

We ate here twice as it was so much nicer than any other restaurant in town. The food was very fresh and they had their act together which literally nowhere else did in Exmouth! The staff was friendly and professional. I would not recommend eating in the inside dining room - eat on the porch and order the local fish dish. Make a reservation as this is a popular place. There's a free local parking lot basically across the street.

The Good
Make sure you book dinner in advance, staff great and food portions were excellent.
Live music on Wednesday nights is superb and relaxing.

The Bad
Price was 15 per cent too high. Coffee was excellent too.
Breakfast shouldn't finish at 11am
You cant sit in the chairs for a very long time.

The Recommendations
Place could benefit by having couches or comfortable furniture.
Needs all day breakfast
Needs some additional character eg local artwork throughout, cushions on chairs
Needs something more on the tables to dress it up more eg just salt and pepper is boring.

Went here on a busy Saturday night and the service was excellent. Staff were smiling and pleasant, the food was very good and served in a resonable time with just the right amount of time between courses. Would reccommend.
