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.

The food was divine, ceviche fresh, duck cooked to perfection and the desserts decadent. Everyone in our party of 5 were absolutely thrilled with the meals. Wine list was great also, as were the mocktails. Only opportunity for improvement is for wait staff to keep an eye on empty glasses we had to flag someone down a couple of times and they they only served he person who asked for a drink not anyone else at the table. Overall a fabulous night, great restaurant and will be back.

Excellent food and presentation, particularly the
Barramundi which was perfectly cooked.
Also, the Creme brulee was possibly the best we have ever had.
We have been dining here for over 30 years and the standard has been maintained at the highest level.
Good service and pleasant wine list.

It was our 2nd time to hold a bday celebratory lunch at Matilda and the food was truly amazing.
Negative points: it was the long wait time for our tea which was served to us after asking another staff to follow it up for us. I hope that they would avoid making remarks like: “I was surprised you finished it all up, I could have not finished it all up myself.” A response when said we didn’t realise the steak would be too big for us. Also never assume that the payment will always be on CREDIT.

Very relaxing dinner at Matilda Bay. We had the set winter menu which had plenty of choices. A lovely cocktail 'Bramble' for me. Special meal from our family. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I specifically ordered the Barramundi in order to compare it to what I had recently had in Sydney (which was outstanding, and at a significantly lower price). The comparison was very poor, very disappointing, just a plain piece of tasteless grilled/baked fish on a few beans. My partner had the salmon which I could have cooked better at home. The creme brulee dessert was good.

Very nice ambiance, beautiful views. Great staff and service. The food was delicious! A few of us had the risotto and it was very tasty, though more seafood in the very large serve of risotto would have made the dish perfect. The salmon and barramundi were also very tasty and everything was well seasoned. Dessert, the waffles, was amazing. Thank you for making my bday lunch so enjoyable!

Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The standard of food was exquisite and wine selection contained a wide range of quality wines. We were disappointed that we were not offered refills after our initial drinks. Whilst the view was sublime, I found sitting in direct view of the sun terribly bright and overwhelmingly hot.

We have been here for 5 times. Then we stopped to come for 4 years because the quantity of foods had been down and the attitudes of the waiter was bad in attempting to argue to our opinions of the food.
This time we come back and our scores are
For Wagyu rump grilled, we marked 2/10
For Sirloin grilled, we scored 3/10.
Both are no taste as well as the sauces.
We wait for you to improve them.
Good luck

Lovely evening as usual. We have been to Matilda Bay many times over the years but this was the first time in a while. Same high standards of food, service and ambiance. We used the birthday month email and received a complimentary main meal, along with a small complimentary dessert with happy Birthday written in chocolate which was unexpected and delicious. We must go back again soon.

Lovely prk belly and duck dishes, however risotto was very lemon infused and the pannacotta desert was quite heavy almost like a mascarpone mixture.

Dining for mothers day we were seated at a table on balcony but in full sun on a hot day,extreme glare and my mother has very sensitive skin. I asked staff if we could be moved but was told that each table had been booked, not possible. Considering we were only allocated a table on arrival and I had booked many months ago I thought this feeble excuse. After a while my mother was very uncomfortable so I insisted we be moved which was then granted.Uncaring staff,very,very disappointing experience!

Our expectations were quite high from previous reviews. The location and views are stunning. The waiter who showed us to our table and took our orders was affable and competent, but as the place got busier, it appeared that we may have been ‘handed on’, but essentially got ignored from the time our first courses arrived. We would have loved another glass of wine each about 10 minutes before our main courses arrived, and a coffee afterwards, but couldn’t get anyone’s attention

We each chose the set menu but with three alternatives for each course none of us had exactly the same meal. The food was as I remembered, high quality, perfect portion sizes and delicious. The view across the Bay is very special and sitting by an open window on a perfect evening was the icing on the cake. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and helped us feel relaxed and comfortable.
We will return.

On occasion of a special celebration, the food was awesome, the setting perfect and tbe service way above average. The wine list is extensive and the menu caters for most. You pay above average but you will feel it was worth it. Will I return? Absolutely!

Best location in Perth. Right on the river, dolphins swimming in front of you whilst sipping a lovely glass of bubbles.

Service is very impressive and good great. We've been here many times and will continue to frequent regularly.

Most enjoyable Sunday lunch spot.
