“Beautiful location but very expensive”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Yes, it's a lovely location but $26 for fish and chips is a bit over the top. The other dishes were equally expensive.

“Another rip-off joint on Rottnest”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

People talk about going out for a seafood dinner at Aristos while staying on Rottnest, so we headed there last weekend as well. I've got to say we were gob-smacked by the prices - completely outrageous - whether one counts the quality of the food (which is just OK), the dining area, or the service. Its as though the management's view is that "we are Aristos and on the waterfront, so like it or leave". And its not as though there is much in the way of alternatives - for evening meals especially (3 places). Reduce the prices by 50%, dial down the attitude, clear the tables and sweep the floor and the place would be OK.

“Aristos”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Did not eat here walked in at 5:30pm place was deserted, even though peak season. Air conditioning non existent and was very hot day, too hot to stay and eat would have been even hotter at lunch time.I'm assured the food is good but prepared to pay for it. They need airconditioinhg fans not adequate.

“Way too expensive!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Although the view from the restaurant is great the price of the food is too expensive. My wife ordered the jhufish, which was $50 for one medium sized fillet of grilled fish, some chips and a small garden salad. My Thai salad was ok but was essentially a $30 salad with a tiny piece of fish. We went elsewhere for dessert.

“View over the water”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had the fish and chips which was lovely but expensive. The service is good. The outlook is amazing (right on the waterfront). The restaurant itself is open air (but there is netting to keep seagulls out) and has high ceilings and fans. On the day we went it was very hot and humid but there was a bit of a sea breeze which helped.
