First time at the Matilda Bay restaurant for our wedding anniversary and we had a GREAT experience! The service was impecable and the food was exquisite!

The wine suggested by SERGIO was out of this world!! You can tell SERGIO knows the wine industry and wine it’s his passion. The wine recommended by him complemented the food beautifully. I’m a wine aficionado myself and had an interesting conversation with SERGIO and learned a lot about wine from him. He has an outstanding people’s skills and we truly enjoyed talking to him. Hope to see him again in our next visit and try another of his wine suggestions. Overall we were really impressed and will be back soon!! Thanks a million. Phillip Draber

Never had a bad meal here.
Enjoyed the champagne brunch but options are nonalcoholic or wine and cocktail lunches.

Tables were very close, the table next to us was very loud and noisy, to the point of being uncomfortable, even the annoying stare didn’t stop them! We were sitting at the bottom left hand corner last table in front of the windows, beautiful views but too noisy

Service was sensational as always, a small problem with my mains and nothing was too much trouble to rectify.

Our meals were tasty, service prompt, my espresso martini was beautiful.

Another great dining experience.

Food was enjoyed by all - dealt with all our palettes on the day with good tastes and flavours and servings - dessert was OK - but our waiter was the best we have had there. He was observant of our needs, attentive, very polite, made great coffee and it was such a pleasure to have him look after us enjoying a birthday. Was a bit noisy and strained to hear each other on occasions but overall a good lunch on a nice day with a lovely view.

We had a great "date night" - just us two and our 10 week old in a pram next to us. The food was great - nothing unexpected. Go here for the location and ambience. I tend to like cleverly presented food with a bit of a twist, but this was very conservative. I had Barramundi with mash. There were a few other things on the plate but it wasn't $44 worth. It was a literal three-finger wide slice of Barramundi - nicely cooked - on a bed of mash with a tablespoon full of sauteed veggies. I also had the brussels sprouts side dish but found it very salty. The menu says sea salt and parmesan but I thinnk the quantities of both were too much (I have high blood pressure). My wife had the lamb chops and for the price, for 3 chops, it seemed a bit unreasonable. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and the service was second to none. But the food was expensive, poorly presented (I think that makes a difference) and pretty much the same as I'd cook at home. It was a lovely experience though (partially because baby Charlie stayed asleep for the whole 2 hours). I think Master Chef has set the bar pretty high - mabe I'm expecting too much. I did pay $200+ each for a "wine matched degustation" meal at Rockpool though and thought it was worth every cent. This restaurant was taking no chances though - the dishes were "as you expect". But for the prices, I expeted just a little more.

The Braised Beef Shin was fantastic though heavy on the sal. I highly recommend the Stormy Night cocktail, and the Lychee cocktail and Winter Sun cocktail were also good. The starter bread and various dips are excellent.

The Fish of the Day (Cod) wasn’t very good, it’s a plain fillet with no skin and on a mushy bed of spinach.

The butterflied prawns are grilled in the shell which makes them hard to eat so we wouldn’t order them again, but others might like that that style.

The chips were hot and fresh but the fast food style of string fries. That may be enjoyed by kids but for fine dining we expect something more fancy and adult like the C Restaurant does.

Our only surprise was that the paper menus were left on the table and only removed after dessert. We thought this was unusual for a restaurant of this calibre

I have to admit I was pretty disappointed. I had wanted to go there for a while and brought some friends with me. I don't mind exorbitant prices when the food and/or service is excellent but i felt there was very little consideration for value for money. The cocktail was not nice, and the food was average. The wine recommendation was probably the only thing i could say pulled the night up!

A Perth institution. Great view. Nice staff. While the manager responded well to our situation, you simply cannot accept coming back to a restaurant that serves up the following: My partner and I were having a great evening, scallops and oysters for entrees with champagne. Then onto mains, where after a few minutes she realised something was very wrong. At the bottom of the salad was a soaking wet paper towel. She had parts of it in her mouth. I don't care what the excuse is, I don't care who is at fault. If you have a set up that allows such a horrible error to leave the kitchen, get out of the hospitality game.
