We entertained a VIP from the UK, he was very impressed and will most certainly return on his next trip to Perth.

Great food, but pricey. Service was the most disappointing part. For the prices you pay, you get worse than cafe level service

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.

That ambience was amazing as we sat right by the Swan River with spectacular views n even saw a dolphin. The waitress was very attentative without being in your face and the food was exquisite with generous serves n very well presented. I had the duck n my husband n my brother in law had the steak n these served were massive.
The meal was about $100 a head which is more than we would normally pay however we were celebrating two special wedding annniversaries n this spot next to UWA brings home many family memories
Thanks for an amazing memory
Kindest regards Nicky n Pete Ellery

Came here for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a very lovely evening, great food, good service and relaxing atmosphere. It was a nice touch to receive a small dessert plate with "happy anniversary" written.
Quality of food and presentation was very high. Better than expected.

Fantastic, always enjoy coming here! Service was fantastic, did have an issue the last time we came, sending the steak back cause it was over cooked and the girl asked when it was brought back, "are you happy now?". Should have complained. This time service was fantastic, our main waitress was lovely, bubbly and really nice with all the customers, not just us.

Had a beautiful experience just recently at this place. Excellent service from staff, attentive, informative but not invasive. It was our anniversary and a lovely touch with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate writing and small piece of cake to share presented to us. Food was excellent, and loved the way they revisit the menus etc as explained to us by our waiter. Waiters name was Richard and a big shout out to him :). With such food and service we will be back on another special occasion ...

Everything about our dining experience at Matilda Bay was lovely; the ambience, view, food and staff. To top it all off they had a very reasonably priced Lunch Special.It represented fantastic value for money and when the food came out, it was not "Lunch Special" quality, it was first class and the presentation was superb. The food both looked and tasted divine. The waitstaff were attentive yet not overly. I requested a window table, which we were given. Very impressed overall. Highly recommend

Top notch from our lovely waitress (a delightful young lady who hails from Trieste, Italy) to the high quality of the food. We both had the lunch special which at $55 p/h for two courses and included a glass of wine each was terrific value for money. We were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary and the staff made it a perfect dining experience.

I had the vegan menu and it was hands down the best vegan meal I’ve had at any restaurant. The dessert was incredible! No restaurant I’ve ever been to has catered so well to vegans and with so little fuss. The service was beyond amazing and everyone was just so lovely. The location is incredible as well

We were a little disappointed as the chicken was dry and the loin chop was tough. Considering the cost of the meal wasn't exactly cheap, we would have thought the food should be well prepared and cooked.
We have seen much better presentation at far cheaper restaurants.
View was amazing.
The staff were ok, however, spent most of the night socialising with each other rather than being attentive to filling water glasses and clearing plates.

Went here for my complimentary birthday meal. My salmon main was nice but very expensive for $42 - only had a piece of salmon and small side salad, but at least it was free. My pavlova was over cooked, not marshmallowy in the middle. My hubby loved his brûlée but was disappointed that his seafood pasta was a different recipe than before, has no clams

All 3 of us had the seafood pasta from the lunch "special". It was overcooked, completely lacking sauce and flavour, and the seafood was woefully sparse. 2 of us didn't eat it (one was very hungry) I was about to cancel our booking for next Monday but the offer of dessert on the house and our lovely waitress saved the day.

I took my elderly Mum here for lunch. We had a beautiful spot right by the window. The two course lunch special menu was more than enough food as servings were very generous. We were very happy with our choices too. The staff were all very friendly and courteous, paying particularly attention to my Mum and assisting her when needed. Thank you for a lovely experience.
