I have eaten lobster around the world. The home of WA lobster served the worst I have ever eaten. The flesh was over cooked had little flavour and very pricey. The salad looked a day old and was small. The other meal was just as...More

Felt obliged to try the WA lobster whilst in this region. Small lobster, tasted good but overpriced at $75. Accompanying salad looks like it had been preprepared a while ago.

The positives; the bistro has a good sized car park and the venue is clean and tidy. We were welcomed and seated during a very quiet mid week lunch session. Windows were opened and drinks order taken promptly by a smiley waitstaffer who, we discovered...More

As we were in the lobster capital we went for the lobster at $75 and the Ocean Trio $35 with bread to start. The service was fine and the staff friendly but the bread had not arrived by the time our meals did. The Ocean...More

A very limited menu during a busy season is not positive! A sea food town but very limited non sea food menu. Extremely expensive for what it is. We fortunately found the country club to be priced more reasonably and a way larger menu.
