Had a nice W.A. vino the Leeuwin Estate... More

We arrived just on dusk, beautiful view from our table. We then settled in to enjoy pre dinner drinks. When it came time to order dinner it was literally too dark to read the menu and we had to use our phones as 'book lights'. Unfortunately this is becoming a common problem with restaurants trying too hard to create a... More

Visited several nights ago to celebrate a family birthday (only 4 people). The food here is first class, and dining on the edge of the water made it taste even better! We loved the spicy Mexican calamari as an entrée followed by excellent pressed lamb shoulder, good value "fish and chips" and pasta with garlic prawns, etc. Whilst you expect... More

We have been eating here for the last 15 years and have never been disappointed. I asked for a table closest to the water and got exactly that. The food was as good as ever, even though I had forgotten about the 15% levy on a public holiday!!!!

As always, a wonderful venue with friendly staff and great food. A real Gem on the Sunny coast. A bit challenging if windy, but that adds to the charm and character of the restaurant.

The food was perfect, the service was perfect, and the location was perfect. There was a huge storm the night we visited, which was lighting up the river. The wine selection is good, and relatively reasonably priced. I can highly recommend the coconut & chilli battered prawns with roasted banana and rum syrup (very interesting combo), which is an entree... More
