A family group including the children had a very enjoyable evening . They catered for the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. A lovely ambience with stunning ocean views in the distance . Pianist playing in the background was very pleasant. I had a variety of local oysters for entree...superb! Smoked lamb on a bed of beetroot mash was... More

This is one of the better restaurants in the region. Fresh fish, local steaks and cooked to perfection. We will,certainly eat at the Whale restaurant next time we are in Narooma.

Excellent high quality local produce and stunning ocean views. The serving sizes are just right - so you can have entree, main and desert. Try them all! Staff knowledgeable and friendly.

We went to Narooma to play in a tennis tournament and we found this lovely restaurant. A pleasure to be there, plenty of character, two different rooms, very nice staff. We loved it and this year we are going to overnight there too. Great experience.

The views are stunning and it is a shame the food does not match it. However the oysters were fabulous but that is where it stopped.The fish was overcooked, the lamb dry, and the desserts, although they looked fabulous, were not very tasty at all.

As usual, Matt and Jen looked after us well. Their passion for local produce, even the salt, shows a commitment to share with customers the best of the Narooma amd south coast region. And with Local chefs and a growing list, its life, and dining,as it should be!

This quality restaurant with its fantastic views and service never fails to disappoint. A gifted chef who serves up delicious food with great presentation. Attentive friendly service. We always look forward to a dinner at The Whale. To the reviewer who stated they could buy a leg of lamb for $30 & were disappointed having to pay that for their... More

Amazing food and service. We keep coming here for the fine dining without the big city prices. Million Dollar view from every seat.

This place is special - once again the food was amazing - we tried some oysters, immediately ordered some more, realized we may not have needed them when mains came out. Gnocchi - divine; aged steak w outrageously Delish sauce; tuna perfect w rich sauce - & not a dainty serve; yummy NZ Pinot & managed to push through to... More

We had high expectations after reading other reviews, and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. Unlike some restaurants where food seems to be designed to impress you rather than for you to enjoy, the flavours in each dish married and complemented each other. We were hard pressed to pick a winner between the beef, smoked lamb or tuna,... More
