My choice would be dinner over lunch especially if you are allocated the balcony , as the far right tables, even in Autumn temp of 23 degrees outside , the glass still gets very hot, and gives off incredible heat , we ate and left...due to everyone feeling the heat . Very young children in full sun , windows need tinting or a awning of some sort would not go a miss Which was a shame, did ask to be moved but nothing available . No air.con on , just ceiling fans. A Very unpleasant lunch for everyone A couple of weeks later had dinner , wow so different , staff were lovely, tables felt like they were more spaced apart . Totally different atmosphere. Would not visit for lunch again, but dinner definitely .More

Fantastic! The beef ribs with sweet potato wedges and coleslaw was a very generous serve. Lamb shoulder also very nice. Butter chocolate mouse/marshmallow fluff/blood orange sorbet with churros was delicious! Friendly prompt service.

Lovely view. Ok service. Was served a breakfast that was apparently gluten free but turned out it wasn’t. I ate half the piece of toast that contained gluten and have been sick all day. Thankfully I’m not a coeliac, just intolerant of gluten. Could have...a much worse situation if I was completely allergic. Paid $25 for two eggs, avocado and spinach with toast I couldn’t eat. Bit disappointed.More

Yes it was busy because it was Valentine's Day, and yes we were told there was about a 35 minute wait time for food. However the food arrived a lot quicker than that, we ordered a couple of dishes from the "while you decide" section...and then more from the "smalls and shares" and a salad as soon as the first items arrived. Everything was delicious and the staff were attentive and friendly. The squid tentacles were the standout dish for us. Absolutely loved it, will be back!More

As always excellent service on a very busy valentines Sunday morning. We didn't book a table but on arrival at the desk we were asked to wait to the side and a table would be available soon. The young lady showed us to a table...after only five minutes also letting us know there was a longer wait time of around thirty minutes. We ordered different breakfasts and they came quicker than advised. Everyone working at Swell seem to enjoy their job as they smile and give eye contact which I like! Food was excellent. We weren't hurried even though it was busy to. We have been to Swell many times various different meals and have never been disappointed. Well done!More

I would userly rate this venue high as we have had no problems before, however I made a phone call booking for a family birthday dinner for my mum, 15+ members. I requested to be sat outside, I was told it could be arranged. We...got to the venue for the table not to be ready, worse yet we were seated inside. This is a small venue we had pregnant women, small children, seniors. This was not appropriate. We requested we take the 3 free tables outside, there was no problem. However we did not want a tab, as we were a big group, there were people who didn't know each other, people who didn't stay long. This lead to further confusion as there were groups who wanted dinner and who wanted nothing. This was a big headache. We were also charged $25 because we cut our own cake and fed 3 children. The manager then tried to argue that the cake was cut therefore $25 fee and then soon explaining to the lady that we cut the cake for 3 children and 1 pregnant woman, she tried charging us $2.50 the swell gained about $600 of our group and it wasn't enough. I can't believe we had to aruge this charge. WOULD NOT recommend ever again and has lost regulars and will be letting our nearest and dearest know of the insults.More

Not very accommodating said they were full when & could see lots of free tables. Said we could sit outside in the heat by that meals would be 45 mins... seemed. Like they were just short staffed and making excuses.

Went with friends for breakfast and it was delicious. Great variety of dishes that all sound so delicious, makes it so hard to choose. They also have a great range of drinks from coffee, teas, smoothies and even breakfast cocktails. Friendly staff and amazing views...of Mullaloo beach make for a great experience!More

Hi Trish, I would think with all the restrictions in place over the past 3 months that it would be extended. I was a visitor so can't answer for the proprietors. Give them a call. Good luck. Cheers
