Matilda Bay Restaurant
Dinner: Daily: 11:30am - 12:00am
WONDERFUL NIGHT FOR A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
From the time we entered a very noisy restaurant, a large party of children celebrating a birthday, and found leftover children’s foodstuff on several chairs we knew it may be a bad night. The noise was unacceptable for a fine dining restaurant. The fact half eaten food stuff was left on two chairs and children’s hand prints were on the adjoining window was just unexplainable. At $45 for mains and an expensive menu for other courses the restaurant should be perfect. While the food was ok it was not worth that price. However the wine was reasonably priced and there was a good range.
We were forgotten after we placed our desert orders and were not asked about coffee or tea. Appears the staff were worn out by the noisy birthday.
All in all a very bad experience at a restaurant I recommended to my eastern states guests and have had a much better experience at in the past.
Time to lift your game Matilda Bay.
Fantastic meal. My husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We chose the set menu which was $89 per person. The wait staff were very good. As we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary the staff brought us a special desert congratulating us. The food was impeccable. Meat cooked so tender. The only negative was it got a little noisy as a 70th birthday party was arriving.
As a regular patron of Matilda Bay Restaurant, I can recommend the food, service, ambience and great river views it has to offer.
Excellent service and food. The ambience is perfect with lovely views out to the river. Matilda Bay is my favourite restaurant in Perth. The service, especially is fantastic and they ensure that whatever the occasion for your visit, it's made special
We had the fixed menu, the prawn entrée was good, for the mains I had fish and my wife had lamb was. This was disappointing fish has dry and the lamb was tasteless. The food appeared to have been precooked and had lost its flavour. Dessert was good.
Service was excellent.
We have been several time before and have been extremely happy on each occasion. Even had our wedding here.
Unfortunately the food served to us yesterday was below our expectations of Matilda Bay. We assume that we were served reheated food from the day before? Or maybe leftovers from a previous event? We knew as soon as each meal was served all of the puree's had a 'skin' and our entree of pork belly smelt of fish.
Horrible meal and won't be going back.
Matilda Bay continues to provide exquisite food in a delightful location delivered by thoughtful and knowledgeable waitstaff.
Every aspect of the day was exceptional . Football was on at Perth Oval so the numbers were down but the four of us were delighted
Matilda Bay remains one of my top two favourite restaurants in Perth & last night didn’t disappoint, although the parked yachts seemed to block the broader view more than they did a couple of years ago. Still a lovely river outlook & our waitress was very efficient. Water glasses always filled before becoming empty (one of my ‘good service’ measures). Food was sensational!
Food disappointing. The Birthday cheesecake was exceptional.
We have been using this restaurant for many years now and have always been happy with our meals and the service. Its location is arguably the best in Perth with stunning river views to Kings Park and the CBD. Dolphins, seabirds and boating activities enhance the experience. Highly recomended.
Nice place for a quiet meal
This is a wonderful venue right by the river but it doesn't rest on this fact. The food is really good, the service is friendly and excellent and apart from being near two noisy parties it would have been perfect. However there was no problem to move to a quieter space for coffee and dessert so would recommend in a heartbeat.
Very pleasant place for lunch.
Top quality food and service
Very friendly staff and great view of Matilda Bay
Shall be back again in the near future

After a rocky start re greeting and service ( late/ forgotten items) it settled down and we all enjoyed the food, atmosphere and location.
I shared the evening with my best friend. We are both going through difficult times and it is refreshing just to have a nice meal at a nice venue
Views are magnificent , atmosphere great , staff very helpful and friendly. Food amazing. Made to feel very welcome, start to finish. Great place to dine whatever the occasion.
We came here for our 2 year anniversary and the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was amazing.
Not at all great if you’re a vegan and the vegetarian option is inedible. Partner ordered a medium rare steak and it came out Bleu.
It was a special occasion-wife's birthday-and the staff made us feel welcome. They were attentive without being overbearing and the food was great.
special occasion at a special restaurant
The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Serving sizes were very generous and there was not a long wait time for meals. This was a special occasion as it was my partners birthday and we were so well looked after and tended to by the staff.
Great spot for lunch with views over the water to perth and the Yacht Club marina. Good food and wine choices and friendly efficient service.
We keep coming back. Enough said!
wonderful ambiance and views plus excellent service, but the food is very average and hugely overpriced
Meal and ambiance were lovely. Service was a little sporadic to start and then towards the end of our visit the trainee waiter was over attentive and hovering which was a little uncomfortable but we understood he was new to the role.
We came over from Germany for wedding in Perth. This was our little wedding dinner and we had a exciting time in Matilda Bay Restaurant! Very family friendly staff (our 2.5 year old son had a lot of fun with them)! Looking forward to come back again when we are visiting Perth next time.
Thank you so much for this awesome dinner.
the mood lights on our table was too dim for us because there were insufficient lights on one side of the table
As usual, a simply menu linked to high-quality dishes, prepared and presented well, in a timely fashion. The service is efficient and friendly but not over-bearing.
There is a tendency to get you to over-order, so too much food is left on the plates, and customers are not allowed to take the excess home. In this day of combating waste, this is a silly policy, especially for meat dishes.
Food is very nice.. excellent customer service.. price is quite reasonable.. nice view and baby friendly...great place for romantic dinner or meet up friends for any special occasion.
All round service and quality.
Risotto could have been a bit more flavoursome - it tasted like old seafood. Otherwise everything was great!
Always stunning with excellent food and wonderful views
Exceptional food and service
Excellent service, fabulous views & very tasty lunch.
It was a dual birthday celebration and the chef's surprise was a lovely gesture. Many thanks, we will be back again & again.
The food is always very good,the ambience wonderful & staff very attentive .
We had a 10 year anniversary’s dinner here and it was an amazing experience. The food was so delicious and generously sized. I liked the option of a mid-size carafe of wine rather than a whole bottle. The cocktails we so tasty too. We really appreciated the complimentary cake to celebrate our night. If we’re ever back in Perth again we will be back.
The quality of service: efficient and relaxed; The seating overlooking the marina; The music.
Loved all the meals EXCEPT thought the vegetarian main was NOT value for money. It was tiny and I was still hungry. NOT what I'd expect for a vegetarian main at all. It was delicious but serving too small.
