Good casual restaurant, friendly staff. Lovely spot to sit on deck and have a wine. Lobster dish was only above average as it was rather dry. I would try something different next time.

We were there for lunch before heading out to the Pinnacles. We had the standard fish and chips, but if you are willing to pay a bit more you can get yourself a half-lobster. The education tour was interesting and we got to know a...More

A bit $$$ however this place has a great atmosphere and outlook to the ocean. There’s an outdoor area which would be great on a nice day overlooks the beach and jetty.

Visited as part of a tour of the area, we thought the food was dry and somewhat tasteless. 'Salad' was particularly horrid. Very little choice too (in a big group, not everyone can eat lobster!).

Really enjoyed lunch there. Lobster was very nice. Location great, and quite spacious, with direct access to the beach. Good spot when either visiting the pinnacles/cervantes or on way north.

I went there last December for a visit to the lobster factory, which looked clean, well organised and was really an eye-opener. The factory tour was short but the experience was a good one. Then we had a lunch in its outdoor restaurant and the...More
