Went yesterday and had a couple Of drinks and fancied a pizza which we ordered. $24 for a chicken pizza which was disgusting - thinnest tomato base with one piece of chicken per slice - very hit and miss here.

It doesn't get much better than this & I'm afraid it seems like half of Perth already knows that, so if you're planning on having a super Sunday with your friends, partner or family - keep this in mind. For the premium experience I recommend...More

Waited 45 minutes for lunch, can normally accept that if we get fair warning, so on this occasion, two stars.

Always a pleasure going for drinks at the breakwater, get in early to secure a spot as it gets busy. Slight disappointment that the Aperol Spritz has downsized. Definitely a chilled place to be.
