We visited here on a very warm Perth day after a walk around the Hilary's complex. It's very much Perth style all modern with the obligatory shopping centre. That said its well presented! Breakwater was very pleasant. We sat at an outside table and enjoyed a couple of pints of Little Creatures IPA which went down well. Great views good... More

We went for an early dinner with family friends, the staff were very accomodating, but eager to move us on to re-seat the table. We must have gotten the after work crowd, within an hour it was packed and full of Friday revellers, poor timing on our behalf I guess. The food was solid pub-grub at typical Hillarys prices. I...

Lovely place to sit outside and enjoy the waters comings and goings. Great selection of premium drinks and the service was nice. The guy picking out cigarette butts from the planter next to us could have waited until we left though. That was a bit gross and he took ages and we wanted privacy.

Staff were very friendly and service was fast. What a beautiful spot for lunch. Prices are good and there is a wide range of drinks (Beer and wine) to choose from. The food was lovely - had the Grilled Barramundi, unfortunately there were a few bones which was a shame as it detracted from an otherwise excellent experience. Nothing worse... More

Tables left dirty for up to an hour, dirty glasses left on bar for over an hour. Despite the friendly staff, the Breakwater seems to be understaffed and not well organised, despite their high prices. However, it has a great position in the marina

Lucky to visit here. This place should be on your schedule even if you're only in Perth a little while. Lunched on the waterfront in a restaurant by the same name, and it was sensational. Beer battered Barramundi highly recommended as is the marvellous Matso's Mango beer, but beware of the cocktail swilling "spouse" who'll set you back $18 a... More

This bar has a nice view of the waterside. I went at sun set and it was pretty bright, not a lot of protection. Good if you want to tan, but not so good it you burn. Great drinks on tap. Worth checking out.
