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.

“THE best place to eat”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Superb food, great service. You won't expect such great food in a informal dining place.
The fish is so fresh, you can taste it. These people know what good cooking is. And it isn't really expensive.

“Informal and modern fusion food, top quality fish!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

An informal place in the main town with top quality service and food. The fish dishes are especially good but don't miss the camembert starter! Very good, I'll miss it

“A beautiful place to eat”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Wonderful food! A great place to eat and brilliant service from the staff. It is quite expensive but the menu dictates this with options like soft shell crab included in the wonderful seafood curry.
