One of the dishes ordered was not as described on the menu. When this was queried the staff did not resolve the query objectively and the customer service was poor.
Perfect place for my birthday!!
Good food good service needs some nice background music
Food was okay, my lamb was a bit too rare for my liking. Linguine was oily and not tasty.
Went early 5:30pm Friday night so could watch sunset. Waitress was very helpful,friendly & fun. All 4 meals were lovely especially the linguini! We shared dessert & the apple tart was delicious - wish I had of ordered my own.! Would definitely go again.
Overall the food was really very nice and the view was lovely. The service was poor. The waitress serving us said it was her first night and was not helpful and bordering on rude during our entire seating.
After our main we asked for dessert menu which came after an eye roll. We waited 10 minutes for our order to be taken but it never happened. We ended up walking out and had coffee/dessert elsewhere.
Given a voucher as a wedding anniversary gift. Although we had a reservation we were given a poor table near entrance so my view was of the lobby. This was disappointing considering couple before us who had not booked were given a much better table. My first course was undercooked and so not edible, I did let the waitress know and she apologised and took the cost off the bill. The food was ok but nothing special. Wouldn't bother returning myself.
We went there for dinner whilst staying in the hotel. It was quiet, but the service was fabulous and the food fantastic
We found the Saturday breakfast experience at Straits cafe a delightful start to the day. The service was excellent, as was the food and of course the wonderful location!
The only negative we experienced was on seeking to leave the car park at Rendezvous, the ticket machine did not accept our parking ticket. There was no indication the parking was free and we wasted a lot of time determining the exit
2 waitstaff could not cope with number of tables. We waited for ages for a menu. Then waited more for them to take our drinks order. Then waited again for our main order to be taken. Dessert menu wasn't offered, we had to request one. We were there for a lot longer than needed.
Please retrain your wait staff
Amazing food, shame about the slow service, and lack of a full bar.
Beautiful food, lovely service. No music playing, could hear music from kitchen which was fair way away. Overall was excellent tho.
Very Disappointing...The buffet was very very basic in variety.
One chicken dish , One fish dish
Only one type of roast meat that was beef and it was tough as leather...no curry no rice..the mixed chopped vegetables were bland.
The food was only just warm & not topped up frequently enough.
The prawns were not much bigger than shrimps.
No water bowls on the tables for rinsing hands when eating prawns.
A very basic buffet for the price.
Breakfast was the worst breakfast I have ever had in all the hotels I have stayed in It was limited choice cold and dry not even baked beans to moisten it up pure rubbish
The service was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed a table by the window with a lovely view of the ocean. There was a special lunch menu very reasonably priced which included a glass of wine. The food was delicious.
Great location and views. Very nice food and ambiance.
good food, in fact excellent, good service, enjoyed a Loy...
always friendly staff and look after you very well. May be only a café but better service than a lot of restaurants charger much higher prices. Great wine selection and staff willing to make the extra effort to recognise a special event or even just a date night.
It's cheap, but you get what you pay for. Probably better to go to DOME.
Lovely view of the ocean.
Friendly helpful staff.
Food and coffee pleasant.
Repetitive background music too loud and intrusive.
We attended for a birthday dinner for an elderly lady. She ordered the fish and chips. 2 lovely pieces of fish arrived and they were quite large. The salad was unfortunately drenched in some kind of oil and she did not like it. (she normally loves salad). She opted to eat some of the chips and one piece of fish but asked for the remaining piece of fish to be packed up so she could take it home. The waitress returned to tell her that was not possible. The fish had already been taken away. Some kind of "health department" problem? Anyhow, had the birthday lady known that was not possible, she would not have eaten any of the chips and would have eaten the fish, which she loves. I guess the other piece of fish had already gone into the rubbish. Not happy. My son's meal arrived without the tartare sauce or lemon wedge which we had to ask for.
Great location and sunset views. Dinner with friends was lovely
Great location, fantabulous tasty food and friendly service.. thank you
Food was very good, staff friendly, service quick but the windows were very dirty.
I understand salty air on the beach but this is the only seaside restaurant we have been to that has this problem. Eating and looking at dirty windows is a real turn off, just wondering if the kitchen is dirty ?
The service wasn’t as expected. Limited food options.
Excellent meal and service. Highly recommended. Meal was served very quickly by an excellent waitress.
Took more than an hour for food to arrive. The brownie dessert was served cold and took two returns to the kitchen to get it right. Very disappointing.
Had a lovely time at Straits food was very good the only little thing is that with the fish dish they could've put a little salad or a bigger piece of fish considering your paying $36 for it . The service was excellent and attentive but not invasive. We'll defenenatly go back!
I took the mrs here for her birthday and it was very good the staff are very friendly and willing to help and the food was really good as well. On arrival they greeted the mrs with happy birthday and gave her a drink on the house. I will definitely be going back!
Our waitress was amazing and made our experience even better. We’ll be back for sure
Food was very average and not all items were as described on the menu, will not be going back.
I took my friend to Straits Café for her birthday. We were welcomed by a friendly staff member, who wished my friend a happy birthday. The ocean view was beautiful. Décor is classy and comfortable.
We enjoyed the $25.00 lunch special which included a glass of very nice sparkling wine. Our desert
came with a candle, and the staff member sang Happy Birthday, then offered my friend a complimentary glass of wine. Must say it was a delightful lunch made extra special by the lovely staff. Thank you.
Pleasant surrounds, good food. inexperienced staff.
Lovely friendly staff, lunch specials great value and beautiful view. Thank you
The food was tasty and there was an exceptable variety for a buffet but it was cold.

My husband and I We had a grazing plate between us, the food was delicious, service was great,
We had a Scoopon with wine, we didn’t want the wine so they gave us a beer each perfect.
Thank you JenniferC for taking the time to write a review! we sure hope to see you back at Straits Cafe again. Glad the team was able to accommodate you. Nathan H Restaurant and Bar Manager Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough
We had a 2for1 offer with hotel so price wasnt too bad. I wouldnt pay $29 for breakfast like that. Waited for someone to show up to do omelette n waitress said she would ask but no one came
Wonderful meal - good atmosphere, excellent service.
I am 31 weeks pregnant and was staying at the Rendezvous for 2 nights. Having stayed there before I knew that the Straits Cafe gets busy so I booked a table for Saturday at 8:45am.
We arrived to our booking at 8:45am to a vacant front desk and a couple in front of us waiting. A staff member, Deborah indicated that she will be back in a minute.
After assisting the couple before us, I told her my room number and that I’d pre-booked a table. Her response is what ruined our experience “I’m sorry we don’t have a table you will have to wait” I repeated that we had booked a table. “She advised that as the time is now 8:52am they are too busy to hold tables”. I pointed out that we were on time and that she had seen us waiting in line when the desk was unattended. Her response was “well when we are busy we don’t hold tables so what do you want me to do?”
If I hadn’t already pre-payed for Breakfast on Sat & Sun I would have enjoyed outstanding service at any of the other cafes nearby.
So whilst the chefs did an amazing job with the food, your floor manager needs to improve.
As I said to her, if you don’t hold tables don’t take bookings and never accuse someone of arriving late when they didn’t.
