I had my 21 st Birthday at Matilda Bay and I’m now 68 ! Our family love the restaurant . However ...... the meal this time was not to usual standard . The x 2 green dishes we ordered were excellent . We had x 3 different desserts and excellent . The barramundiI dish was very good . The $59 Crayfish Special was not good .Three of us ordered crayfish and the flesh was not white . We all agreed It was stringy and not flavoursome . The Restaurant was packed and I’m sure others felt the same . The complimentary Sparkling Wine was good .

I would've thought a restaurant such as Matilda Bay would have some control on obnoxious loud diners but they there is none.
Food was very nice but not fantastic. We had a first time waiter which I would've thought would be put on lunch rather than the prime time evening meal dining experience. He was learning as he went. Having said that of course you just can't beat the view, parking and location.

I chose this venue for our group of 6 as they have a seperate vegan menu and a lovely view over the boat harbor.
Service was attentive and our wait staff was super helpful, bit of a wait between entree and mains and then some confusion when the meals came out but it was all sorted promptly.
The vegan set menu was amazing and the chef should be congratulated for thinking up some dishes outside the normal. The meat eaters all enjoyed their meals.
Would highly recommend!

Food was excellent. Starters very quick to come out but a long delay before the mains. Dessert menu was very disappointing, didn’t order any.

My request was for a close to river and we were sat at the back. Understand if there were no tables but no acknowledgment of my request.
Fish dishes were dry and really poor value at $45.
Took two goes to order bottle of roderer champagne and then waiter was missing and had to refill glasses myself.
It was hot and seemingly no air conditioning where we were seated
Spoke to friends and same feedback as expensive and not great food

Brilliant place to entertain visitors from elsewhere over lunch.

Only negative- look after the lawn in front of the restaurant,-even if it isn't your responsiblity!
At present it provides an arid and untidy foreground to the view across the beach and river to the city. I know there are restrictions on fertiliser use close to the river, but it could still look a lot better.

The food was good, as expected, but not fantastic, which is what I would expect from this restaurant's reputation. The desert especially lacked imagination and flavour and wad average at best.

While the view was beautiful, unfortunately ambiance was lacking, with no music in the main part of the restaurant (there was music in the bar which definitely added to the atmosphere, but that didn't carry through to the rest of the venue). Overall I was quite disappointed and wouldn't recommend Matilda Bay for a special occasion, especially with so many other now available in Perth within a similar price range.

Promptly welcomed at the reception and taken straight through to our table. The staff were very attentive and saw to our every need. The setting is fabulous and the food delicious. There was only one hiccup and that was dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction. The wines were delicious!

Really can't fault anything when it comes to Matilda Bay Restaurant, the atmosphere is always lovely & service great. Only one little hick up this time, in that the wait staff forgot about our bubbles but other than that the crayfish was cooked perfectly and the salad was delicious!
