We went as a group of four on a sunny summer's day and had a great time in the relaxed but stylish dining section of the Beach Club. The food was really tasty, uncomplicated but well prepared and the serving staff were terrific, friendly and professional. Good wine list and we really enjoyed the iced champagne with fruit given the hot weather. Only two disappointments resulting from bad management practices (which even the staff don't understand and were apologetic about!).
1. we spent $400 on lunch but we couldn't order a coffee at our table to finish off the meal.... we were told we would have to move into the old hotel section if we wanted coffee so of course we didn't bother. Annoying for us and lost income for them.
2. we wanted to split the bill in half on two credit cards but because one of them was an Amex card we were told this was too hard! Really? Apparently because of the 3% Amex surcharge! So we offered to add 10% to the bill to cover the surcharge and a tip but our generosity was rejected! So we paid with two visa cards and they didn't get the surcharge or the tip! Again, annoying for us and lost income for them.
We will return and hopefully they will sort out their management policies!

Great renovation on the interior of this well-known hotel; the interior now looks like something you might find in Cape Cod or Nantucket, with white timberlap interior punctuated by relaxing lounges by the dining area.
Waitstaff very friendly and the main course fish was excellent. The rotisserie chicken and lamb was also nice but the owners need to chat their lamb supplier because too much of it was too fatty.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere to hang out with friends.

This beer garden transformed has a pleasing vibe and visuals. And attentive service, so rare in Perth! But I don't want to argue with the chef ( with Russell Blaikie's input!) about too salty WAY too salty duck curry. All you could taste was salt. They took it off the bill, after bringing out a second attempt. Still inedible. No apologies, which is the worst aspect of this sad experience. Shame.

A naturally ventilated, balmy beach club atmosphere, with competent food to match. Typically expensive Perth pricing ( two mains, a bottle of wine and bottle of ginger beer, only $127.00 !!), but nevertheless a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

I'm a Cottesloe resident who grew up going to the Cottesloe Beer Garden. It became really grotty and I stopped going. It's now been completely refurbished and is worth going to again. I was with a group of friends in the 45+ age group on a Friday night for drinks and it was great. It was busy but didn't seem over crowded. OK - the drinks aren't cheap but there's a few bars and plenty of staff so getting drinks weren't a problem.
