We'd been here before and disliked it so we were hesitant to go back. However we were pleasantly surprised. The food was really nice and they've expanded beyond reheated pub foods. The food is much improved and I really enjoyed my meal. I was just...More

Located within the grounds of the Ningaloo Reef Resort, it is convenient for guests, especially those with children. Food is well priced pub food with usually a daily special

Basic cafe with a limited menu and opening hours. You can't even get a basic toasted sandwich here. As part of the so called Ningaloo Reef Resort you expect so much more. It detracts from the Coral Bay experienceMore

We came to lunch here a few days ago with family, to say the seafood linguini was disappointing would be an understatement. It was flavorless and the sauce was more like water the pasta had been cooked in no way was this worth the $45....More

It's part of Ningaloo Reef Resort. We had dinner there twice because it was convenient. The adult meals were all very decent - barramundi, chicken Parma, steak. My daughter's spaghetti, however was rather disappointing - quite bland and lacked sauce. She was hungry after swimming...More

We are here for breakfast lunch and dinner yesterday and the quality is pretty good. We had big breakfast which was very generous and typical of a big breakfast. A vegetarian big breakfast option would be a great addition to the menu. I had the...More

Very much anticipated having the chili mussels and chicken parmy! Unfortunately, no mussels (however the chef did offer to make chili clams), and the parmy was over cooked as were the cauliflower fritters. The saviour dish, however, was the lamb medallions. Cooked beautifully! Staff friendly...More

This is the pub/cafe/bistro at Ningaloo Reef Resort. Great atmosphere, lovely staff and a menu of bistro staples plus a couple of fun surprises. A place for a quick dinner or to sit all afternoon and evening. Definitely worth your custom when in Coral Bay.More
