Great to plan ahead for a special birthday celebration. Pre-lunch drinks in the bar was comfortable and easy. Lunch table was perfect for our group of 13. Staff were helpful and fun. Food and wine fitted the occasion well. Thanks.

My wife and I are regular dinners at Matilda Bay, a dining hotspot which I would categorise as among the best in Perth, if not THE BEST.
The service though was a bit slow at our recent visit contrary to what we are used to. The waiter did apologise to us and to the dinners at the adjoining table.
I understand it was a busy night for them, but it did not spoil our night in any way. As usual the food was excellent. We will be back again and again.

Matilda Bay is an incomparable setting beside the river. Their weekday lunch special menus are great value and the food is always reliable and interesting - perhaps slightly too interesting on occasion. I prefer beautiful fresh ingredients to be prepared simply - not overwhelmed with other flavours.
Service is great. Absolutely recommend.

Three old school friends enjoyed our 3 70th birthdays over lunch. The menu was perfect and we all got something we wanted from the choices plus a glass of wine.
This made it very reasonable and to have that gorgeous view made it special.

Me and my wife come to Matilda bay each year (sometimes more) but always on our anniversary since being married at Matilda bay in 2014 (Connie wed planner).

It is our favourite restaurant and it never disappoints. See you soon.

Matilda Bay Restaurant has always been a favourite to visit.
The introduction of their SUNDAY FISH & CHIPS special sounded
wonderful. Our meal on Sunday 1st October was .......SUBERB👍
The Whiting was so fresh, beautifully cooked; not greasy and the batter
was perfect. Along with the delicious crispy chips it was the best fish and
chips I have had .....ever. Our meal was accompanied with the Asian Slaw
Which was sublime and so tangy. We also enjoyed a glass of the
Pizzini Prosecco; lovely.

Had an exceptionally fantastic experience. Staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. Very happy with the service and food were cooked to perfection. We requested for a table with a view and was given one. The best of all is the surprise birthday cake. It made my daughter's birthday's celebration even more special. She was very impressed!

We had a wonderful lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose the set lunch menu which included a glass of wine each and was very good value for money. The food was excellent and two courses were more than enough for lunch. The staff were helpful and friendly and we had a lovely table with amazing views over Matilda Bay. We were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and were given a lovely dessert plate with "Happy Anniversary" on to share. A very nice touch. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary even more special.

I was disappointed with the steak I ordered. Just not what I expected and I wished that I had ordered something else.

But not value for money
Lots of other restaurants near the water that beat this one for food
Sweets were excellent

We visit Matilda Bay Restaurant often for lunch and always enjoy the experience. The current set menu is good value for money, with a good choice of entree and main meal and a glass of wine included at $49.00 per person. Our 100+ year old friend loves oysters natural so she always has 6 for her entree and 12 for her main and says they are always fresh and juicy, delicious. The staff are always friendly and efficient and are able to anticipate our every need.

It was easy to arrange a booking, which was a big plus. The service was excellent. as was the food. The view of the Swan provided a pleasurable backdrop. My wife and I used to frequent this Matilda during the 1960 - 1970's and it was great then and it is great now.

We ate here for a business dinner. It was my first trip. The table was squashed up a bit against the wall, but was comfortable and reasonably quiet. The staff was helpful and efficient, providing very good service throughout the evening. We all ate beef (wagyu beef cheeks or steak). My filet was tender, beautifully cooked and flavourful. The sides were a good size and also tasty. I have food allergies (gluten intolerance being one) and this was not a problem at all (gf, nf, in the menu).

 (Perth / WA)·Dined on 22 July 2017

Matila Bay was once one of our favourite restaurants. However in recent times we have not always had a good experience. On this occasion (Saturday 22 July 2017) we arrived (party of 4) at 7:15 and our order was taken at 7:30 (so far so good). However our food did not arrive until 9:00pm and this was in spite of several enquiries to the wait staff. The latter were trying really hard but it was apparent that the problem was elsewhere. The kitchen seemed to be under extreme pressure as there were two functions at the restaurant that night. Our food, when it was served , was "ordinary" and really not worth the wait. The manager offered us free deserts in compensation for the delay. We declined this offer and asked for the cost of the desserts to be deducted from the bill - this was agreed. Had this been an isolated incident we could have overlooked it but since it was a second "offence" we feel that management standards have slipped at this establishment. Will not be returning any time soon.

We visit Matilda Bay Restaurant regularly and yesterday's meal was the best we have had there. My husband and I chose the set menu so both had salmon for entree and the chicken for our main. Both were full of flavour and very tasty. Our friend always has oysters natural and said they were very special too.

We took advantage of the winter lunch special and were so impressed with the quality of food for the price. Both of us had the gnocchi for entree, very nice. I had the snapper and my partner had the beef cheek for mains. Again very tasty. The creme brûlée desserts were also delicious. The free glass of house wine was better than I expected.
A special mention for our very attentive waitress, Jemma, who looked after us.
