Went for dinner on a Friday night. Waited 45 mins for a beer and an hour and a half for 2 pizzas. Staff friendly and apologetic but no sign of quicker service. Would not go again.

Queuing for 30 mins to order food then told to queue for another 30 mins for drinks! Unsurprisingly food came out before I even ordered the drinks! This place used to be an icon! An embarrassment to bring friends from overseas now!

This restaurant Bar & Bistro is in a good location next to the hotel. Beautiful beach fron and many tourists like to come here with their families to eat, drink and enjoy. Very popular due to the best beach scenery.

Rottnest bar and bistro has one of the best views on the island to relax with a drink and have a meal. The food is pub grub. I wish they would add a couple of pasta dishes just to expand their menu a little.

The location is fantastic. The food quite okay (hot chips were awesome, pizza decent), but certainly at a premium. Most staff were friendly, except for the one who tried to charge me $120 for the $25 bottle of bubbles which was on their list for...More

It was a lovely day when we went for lunch with 9 people. We where able to get a table but in no time the place was crowded and long lines to order lunch. Our meals came out haphazardly but all tasted good. The crispy...More

It's time 'Management' did something about the menacing seagulls. Even though outside there are ways of restraining them from devouring the leftovers. The chips are fantastic but that's where the praise stops. The service was pitiful with huge long queues ordering food and drinks. In...More
