We visit Esperance frequently and Ocean Blues Restaurant is our preferred cafe / restaurant for breakfast. The service is always friendly and welcoming. Breakfast menu has a wide range to offer for continental and cooked style. The food is fresh, tasty and portions are not large so that you are overwhelmed before you start. The coffee is delicious. and of... More

Had lamb - tough and not much of it. Fish tough and dry. Streak was ok. Seafood platter was ok but the fish was chewy

We hadn't visited here for breakfast for a long time but both enjoyed our recent meal. It is great to be able to see the ocean while dining and this is one of the few places in Esperance where you can do this, albeit with a road in between. The hollandaise was very nice, eggs cooked as requested. The only... More

We dined here tonight with another couple. This a great location with views towards the Port which is lit up like a mini city. The service was a little ordinary as I think the young lady was only new, but this did not detract from the food or the evening. All the food that came past us to other tables... More

We were amazed at the size of the servings, our Pork Belly entree would have satisfied 2 diners! And our main courses were similar, resulting in much waste.

We lunched here twice in our two stays in Esperance, and both times were quite happy with our meals. This is not a " fine dining " experience, so if that's what you're looking for, go elsewhere. On the way over, I had one of their schnitzels and my wife had a scallop and prawn wrap, both of which were... More

Service and meal was very average. I commented on how bad the calamari was and the waitress admitted they were having problems with their recipe but hadn't suggested I order anything else, taken it off the menu or given me a discount/free drink or anything. Later we found Taylor Street Jetty cafe - much much better :-)

Ocean Blues is located across the street from the water so the view is very nice. We enjoyed a dinner and two breakfasts at Ocean Blues. Dinner was delicious with fresh fish and wonderful salads. The breakfasts are generously portioned and there are lots of options. The coffee was really good, too, and the orange juice tasted fresh squeezed.
