Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good views Excellent food with good portions. Perhaps worth providing a finger bowl with the mussels as a bit messy otherwise.One observation was that there was not any soap in the gents

This place is often booked out, so it's essential to book in advance. We came here for a special dinner, and the food was fantastic. It's not cheap, but it was top tier fare, well presented, and tasted amazing. Despite being very busy, staff were...attentive and helpful, and also made an effort to accommodate some special requests we had. For a high quality dinner, if you don't mind the price, this place is probably the top option in Kalbarri.More

We experienced a very enjoyable meal here last evening. It was heavily booked so we recommend securing a spot early. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. My husband had the lamb shank special and said it was superb. I had the pasta which was...also very good. The staff were very busy but took the time to chat with customers and made everyone feel very welcome.More

Had a nice anniversary dinner. Wife had a very nice prawn linguini. I had a sirloin steak which was inedible. They gave us a $4 discount off the $39 steak which I couldn't eat. They said they had a few complaints about the steak. Waiters...and service were lovely. Got some chips on the way home.More

I don’t usually post restaurant reviews but I was so appalled by the low quality and at best very average food along with the bad service at this restaurant I felt I have to warn others. My friend selected the Lamb cutlets from the menu...only to be served very tough and tasteless lamb chops which he could not eat or wanted to. When he bought the matter first to the waiter’s attention the reaction was to just say the butcher delivered the wrong cut, then the owner / manager first claimed they were cutlets, only after the chief was called who verified they were lamb chops did the manager concede but offered no apology or another menu choice to replace the incorrect uneaten meal. Also my steak was of low quality mostly fat and gristle, not wanting not to upset the evening at first I persevered and ate what part of the steak I could, only about a half, only after my friend’s issue with the lamb was bought to the attention of the whole table that I also felt a need to mention my meal. The owner / manager’s lack of interest in the matter couldn’t of been any less. My fiend’s wife who had been attempting to come to a satisfactory arrangement with the restaurant in the matter was still presented with the full bill for the incorrect lamb meal, so frustrated at the restaurant's lack concern or interest in the matter she tore it in half while telling the staff that she wouldn’t be paying for it, she then paid the rest of our bill and we left.More

Sensational food & service. We could not fault the service & how accommodating there were with food selection & changes of choice. We had dozen oysters (coffin bay) yum. We also had calamari tender & tasty with a sprinkling of salad, we did feel it...was overpriced with only 6 rings of calamari. We shared the main, pork belly with Asian greens on a bed of sweet potato purée (absolutely delicious)More

What has happened to this place? Our last visit earlier this year was exceptional so we brought friends this time to show off, to be only embarrassed. Food quality has dropped big time, we got told they have a new chef. Bad move! Get the...old chef back! his food was so tasty and cooked perfectly. We understand staff are transient in hospitality but some are worth keeping no matter what if possible, they bring back customers. Unfortunately we won’t be looking forward to this restaurant anymore.More

We thought the restaurant would be close on a Sunday but they'd decided to open that evening. The service was very efficient and the food delicious with a wide choice of freshly cooked options. Sitting outside on the balcony was very pleasant.

We had a table on the balcony with a view the post-sunset sky in all its colourful splendour. The squid starter was excellent as were my husband's fish and chips. My fish Laksa was a little disappointing with a lack of flavour and noodles. The...chocolate dessert was delicious. The staff were all delightful, friendly and helpful and what a nice surprise to see the Scottish girl who had served us in the bakery in the morning, working there! Keep up the work/travels. Our wish to compliment chef Roger extended to sharing a whisky at the bar, we being the last customers to leave. Thank you to the whole team.More

We paid $136 for 2 people. This was for entrees and mains each plus a bottle of wine. I'm sure that you could email them and ask for a copy of the menu to be sure. From memory mains were between $38 and $45. Hope this helps
