What an exceptional location an city/river view. Easy parking an lift upto plaza level works well for all. While it is a small breakfast menu the meal size was very good. It is not table service, but the staff attended to providing water an clearing the dishes promptly. They were all very friendly an courteous - everyone was greeted on arrival an when leaving. My only criticism was the meal was not very hot. We will certainly be returning.

Excellent cafe, super view and very good quick service. If you want an excellent, affordable meal and drink before a BBL game go here.

There’s got to be a better way for a large crowd pre-game to order their food quickly without queuing at the front bar and crowding that area as people are trying to move through. At peak times, more than two staff taking orders would make the cafe more efficient. The food and service made up for this hiccup though, which was overall very good. One idea would be a food pre-booking service through your website for those who have made a table booking. That way the food can be served quickly without the need to queue.

View is pretty special. Only had coffee which was ok. Needs more morning/afternoon type of snacks as muffins are a bit boring.

City view cafe was a great refuge from the noise and crowds at the Perth Test. I was pleased that the cafe stayed open til after the end of the first session on Sunday the 4th day of the test so I could enjoy a nice glass of wine in air conditioned comfort looking out over the river to the city.

Very nice new chic atmosphere with a beautiful view to river. Staffs were nice and friendly . The food was delicious and very good for the price . The only thing was the door of the restaurant was opened so few flies were in which bothered us while having food. Maybe in summer time its a good idea to leave the door closed. Overally, I will go back again. Thank you

Loved the atmosphere - Avo on Toast was delish! Service was amazing & chairs were comfortable. Only thing I’d improve on is the signage - you wouldn’t know you guys exsisted if you walked past. Other than that we will be back!

Our party of 15 thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast experience. Drinks and food were received promptly. The staff were very polite and friendly. Breakfast menu would have been better if pancakes, eggs benedict and muesli were available. The view from the cafe is very pleasant and we will return.

I went to this restaurant the week before and although I liked the food, I thought that the portion was very small. On this occasion, the size was perfect: the chicken was almost twice the size this time. The first time I ordered the charred cos with chicken and the second time the chicken with roasted pumpkin and quinoa. They both cost the same amount of money, both delicious but the portions completely different.

The view and atmosphere were great, service was terribly slow. The coffee was absolutely terrible and cold when we received it after an over 20 minute wait. Food was average.

How would you rate this experience?
Made a web page reservation for approx 10:15am. Could not get to any parking area because a charity run was being organised in just one of the many parking areas. Alternative parking was too far to walk. Attempted to cancel booking accordingly but only got a message machine when I called with no subsequent return call made to me.

Great dining before the West Coast vs Essendon game Thursday 5/9/19. Greeted warmly at arrival and the service was wonderful from there on in. Was offered a complimentary beverage which included beer or wine. Impressed with the food choices from fresh seafood, roasts,vegetables, salad bar, asian selection and three dessert bars which included gluten free and flourless deserts. Plus the view was amazing. Would definately recommend and will definately return.

Small size buffet for $55 per person. Not worth the price.
The beef medallions were great but not much else was of the same quality.
The free drink each with the meal was a saving grace.

we dined at City View Café before the West Coast Eagles last home game for 2019. We were welcomed by very friendly Staff, ushered to our table & host Sarah. Sarah was well informed had impeccable service skills and very friendly. The buffet itself was awesome, very fresh wholesome food finished off with some delightful dessert, we would recommend this Restaurant to anyone considering dining in the precinct. We will be back next year, Dave & Nat.

We booked a table for 6 girlfriends and were seated at the round table near the window, that was excellent, great views and perfect for chatting. All the staff were great, polite and helpful, one young lady in the team was very happy to take a photo of our group just as we were leaving and that was great. I've been to the cafe several times now, taking local friends and oversea visitors. One of my girlfriends who had not been before said the Cafe was now her new favourite place to go. Thank you.

The setting is great, staff were very helpful the main negative from our group was that our food could have been hotter. Taste was good, portions good but it came out in drips and drabs and by the time we had our whole meal in front of us the first part was cold. The restaurant was busy but not full so not sure why that happened. Particularly as we were asked to preorder.

Great dinner venue with two young children for a Dockers night game beginning at 6.10pm. The food and service were first class and being able to walk up to our seats minutes before the first bounce took away any time stress. Can’t recommend highly enough.

It was a great view from the Cafe overlooking the bridge, river casino, food was fantastic, prawns, crabs lots seafood, different dishes for different cultures.
Bit of a muck up when we went to pay the bill, as our table still had someones breakfast meals on there which we did not have, was sorted out in the end by the manager.

As it’s name suggests, you do get a magnificent panoramic view of the Swan river and the city. We were a group of seniors and had booked on line. We were all happy with our food. I had the pumpkin and black bean salad supplemented with smoked salmon, which was a delicious generous portion. We also appreciated the very friendly and efficient service.
Perhaps our only problem with this venue is the lack of public transport to the stadium when there is no event and the very long walk from parking spots we found. City View Cafe ison the first floor of the stadium, but there is a lift for those not wanting to climb the stairs.
