You cannot beat the view from this venue. Tables were very close together, so staff bumped into chairs and patrons. Food was good but for the price - it was not good value.

What a beautiful view, this restaurant has a very plush and welcoming atmosphere.
The food flavours are lovely and a complete surprise. Ok some may think it is a tad expensive but it is value for money we felt. If you have a special occasion to celebrate or you just like the good things in life, then Matilda Bay is for you.

Service was excellent, however the food was average.
The food continues to be sub par for the price. It’s close but I prefer other restaurants.

Little mistake before I arrived, received an email saying my reservation was cancelled 30mins before the booking time. Once arrived everything was ok.

This was one of the most overpriced meals I have had in Perth in recent memory. IN FACT it was the most overpriced meal I have ever had in Perth in the last 22 years. Price aside, the quality and presentation was substandard and the delay between ordering and receiving the food was also unacceptable. By contrast with the meal we had the night before at Nobu, it is clear that Matilda Bay does not seem to have any sense of respect for the culinary knowledge or integrity of their clientele.

Window table didn't disappoint with sunset views over the Swan River and to the City - a tranquil setting with the restaurant being on the banks of the Swan. The discreet but efficient table service was outstanding. Recommend the Fresh Oysters , Hoi Sin Duck was also a hit and the steamed treacle dessert was delicious, just like Granma used to make ! Couldn't fault anything - the prices reflect the high standards that the restaurant provides. Close parking a problem on a Saturday night with multiple events at the restaurant, but there is an overflow carpark a few minutes away.

The ambience and views were beautiful and this was one of the reasons we chose the venue. We were celebrating my son's 30th birthday who had flown in from Sydney, along with his Canadian girlfriend, and his sister and partner (also from Sydney). We chose a 6:15 pm time slot so that we could enjoy the views during the daylight hours and as the sun was setting.

We were disappointed that the 'birthday boy' was unable to have his cocktail of choice as the restaurant had "run out of one of the ingredients". In addition, the 'birthday boy's' brother was unable to have his first choice of main meal 'the aged beef', as the restaurant "had run out". I was surprised that a restaurant could 'run out' of so many ingredients. The servings of food were delicious but very small for the prices that were being charged, especially for the men at our table.

It was a lovely touch for the restaurant to provide a Happy Birthday dessert, however, it was just as we were paying the bill at the table, so the timing was a little awkward.

Whilst the 'birthday boy' did not express his disappointment to me, I know that he felt let down by the experience. He is used to examplary dining experiences and as this was such a special occasion, overall it was not a memorable experience.

Food OK - but menu needs to be more balanced - Poached lemon chicken for an entree was far too heavy though and far too much starch for a starter. The attending wait person had no knowledge of the wine menu and after three tries at communicating our choice to her, we were instructed to "show her" the menu - this was repeated for the second bottle. One of our dessert/coffee orders was forgotten - getting attention was a chore. We usually tip.

We enjoyed our lunch on 24/12 & found the staff extremely attentive & efficient.
Like all restaurants today, the food is good but wine is triple the price you can buy it for at your local!
We did very much enjoy this choice of venue & food for a birthday celebration.

Food not worthy of the high prices.
My wife was particularly dissatisfied with the snapper which was dry and tasteless - almost like it was overcooked in a microwave.
I enjoyed my scotch fillet steak but it was $48 for just the steak alone on the plate.
The restaurant is located in a beautiful setting so it’s a real shame the food could not match the surroundings.

Always love coming to Matilda Bay for our yearly Christmas celebration. We do come other times also but Christmas is a given.
But this year I cant say that I was overly impressed with the service that we received. Food always great.
We still enjoyed our night thought.

The location of this restaurant and the view from it make it a great place for a meal. Seeing the moon come up over the boats and the city is quite special. Service was attentive and asked if there was an occasion. Which later came back as a congratulations desert plate. While the wine list was huge, it was a little on the expensive side I thought, with not a lot of moderately priced wines. The food was lovely, possibly a little too fiddly, with al ot of flavours going on. Everyone liked the scollops.

The food was exquisite - every course was superb (we had 3 courses). The service was exceptional - very attentive and welcoming but also respectful and professional, knowing when to give us space. We were made to feel special. Being lucky enough to be seated at a table right by the window to have the view of the river was the icing on the cake ! We had an amazing experience.

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.
