The fish (snapper) was dry and excessively salty. Other choices were fine.

The food was outstanding although I found the main course selection limited as I don't eat seafood so there were only two options for me unless I ordered a salad. Fortunately what I did order was absolutely delicious and it was refreshing to see enough sides served with the pork.

The food was rather bland, and we were not supplied with serving forks or spoons making it difficult to get the food onto our plates without dropping it. Nice location and the ambience was good.

The vegan menu was fantastic. Nice to see such an accomodating set menu. Would love to see the vegan options grow as I will definitely be bringing family/friends for special events and would love more options! :)

The service was mistimed and unprofessional with no time to properly enjoy courses as delivered
Initial drinks took too long to deliver with food delivered straight away
Unprofessional response from management when this was pointed out
Would not recommend due to poor service especially considering their prices and they charge for everything possible, water, bread, variety of sauces for steak

Went there for an anniversary. The staff were attentive and kind, the food was lovely, and they gave us a tiny anniversary dish with chocolate writing which was so lovely of them. Would recommend for a special night out.

Our one steak came as a med-rare and was ordered as a med.
Steak should come with chips or salad. It should not have to be paid for seperately.
Personal choice, mac donalds french fries should not be served ar an establishment such as Matilda bay. Normal thick cut chips would be more acceptable.
Over priced for the quality of the food.

Great food, service and ambience. We were given a vegan menu - which was great as many restaurants have no vegan options at all.

We were looking forward to our evening but overall quite disappointed. Garfish was yummy but very small for $42 and my husband was left quite hungry! Some snooty staff and overpriced for what you get. Lovely city lights view not worth that much!

Amazing location with great views over the marina and city. The staff were attentive staff but not over the top. The menu had a broad range of offerings and the food was very good but a bit on the expensive side.

On the way home in our Uber, the general discussion was that the services was not up to what we would normally expect. It was OK but that was all.
However we enjoyed the night.

We had to wait over an hour for our mains. We had to ask several times where the food was. Considering we didn’t have entrees it was poorly of the wait staff and chefs. I was assured when I made the booking that my dietary requirements could be accommodated. They were not. I was told that I could have the greens as a side dish and that was it. I wanted the Brussel sprouts and could the dressing be altered. No. That wasn’t allowed. Which gave me the impression that the food was further prepped and not freshly put together. My business partner and I were there that night to try the restaurant as we had it booked for our Christmas work function. Needless to say that we will be cancelling that booking now.

I requested a window table a few days earlier, but they were booked out. Loved the food, service and outlook. Unfortunately we had a large table (behind us) with small children who spoke very loudly. I think the wine is a little overpriced. We needed flashlight to read the menu as the lighting was dim. Great for a special occasion.

One of my favourite restaurants in Perth. Impressed out of town visitors with the view of the city and then with the food and service.
