Nice menu and some excellent fish. Sadly this was the only place we've found in WA where we couldn't get an explanation of the fish on offer. Coming from NSW there are several types which are unknown to us but all we were told was...More

We had the best fish dish I can remember! My wife had battered, and the three others had grilled, red spot emporer fish. Large serving - chips in a basket - fresh salad. So tasty. We went back the next night and it was just...More

I enjoyed a HUGE bowl of pumpkin soup followed by the fish of the day, which was a local gummy. I was served two large grilled fillets with chips and salad. Delicious. The restaurant is painted blue and is on the waterfront. Go there for...More

I was in town for business and we visited for breakfast. Every staff member was friendly and polite - best service in Esperance! The coffee was good. The food was decent - arrived quickly, good honest breakfast and reasonably priced. We'd go back without hesitation!

Incredible food and wonderful service. The bacon and waffles are to die for! The eggs benedict was pretty awesome too. We'll definitely be back.

Quality of the food was poor, oysters tasted old and bacon was burnt! I would expect better food from a counter meal at a pub! Their service was prompt but that's the only upside to this outdated "restaurant" (using that term very loosely)

Disappointing, to say the least. The seafood combo was singularly unspectacular with overcooked, tasteless fish fillet and dry bugs that had clearly been thawed and possibly microwaved - totally inedible. My frind had the squid which she couldn't eat due to excessive saltiness. At 8.45...More

Wasnt crowded like the pier which was good. Seating and tables were a little uncomfortable. Staff though not professionally trained had a good attitude. The security camera was aimed at the patrons which i found a little intrusive. There was hair in the cabonara. Quite...More
