Well, due to the hype of not missing this while you're in Perth, I have to try it while at Cervantes. Nothing special really, similar to Fish & Co. If you have it in your country. Pricey for a mediocre type of lobster with loads...More

We were on our way to Pinnacles and decided to go to this place. The lobsters are fresh but I find the water provided has a rather weird taste like seawater.

My partner and I came for lunch midday on a Monday, so it wasn't busy at all. Our food was prompt, and the lobster was *delicious.* I just wish you'd get more of it for the money.

Poor communication from the staff regarding ordering. Managers position extremely disappointing! We had a large group that were told to order as one table - we were able to pay separately. 5 of us ordered the abalone at $12each. Instead of coming out on individual...More

The lobster was delicious, an incredible flavour but the rest of the menu is very limited and the service is lacking. They give you a buzzer that notifies you when your meal is ready for you to collect (no table service) but ours wasn’t working...More

Stopped in for a late lunch after visiting the amazing pinnacles. What a top spot to eat amazing fresh WA lobster. Cooked to perfection, best lobster ever and served with chips or rice. Highly recommended if you love a tasty as lobster! 🖒

My partner and I came here with the expectation to try fresh lobsters but the tour was AUD5 / person for a boring audio tour. We were done within 15-20mins. More should be done to make the tour interesting. Our lobster sandwich was also miserable.
