We stayed at the resort and so ate here twice. Both meals were unexpectedly top-notch. The atmosphere is very soothing and totally focuses on the surrounding nature. Service was very good and the pre-dinner cocktails were wonderful!

We stayed at Tharla Beach Resort (beautiful) and were keen to try the restaurant. The views were ridiculously beautiful, the service was terrific and the food and drinks were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything else.

Great food served with an even better view of the sunset settling by the bay. The food is made from ingredients from the grounds of the hotel, which helps to create an exclusive and tranquil experience

The chefs are wonderfully talented, have their own gardens for fresh ingredients, and even prepared our own freshly caught fish for us one evening. If I could give them infinite stars, I would!
