Given the stunning location and gushing reviews, I was sadly underwhelmed by the food. I found nothing 'amazing', but rather I thought some dishes quite clumsily executed in terms of taste, with sauces that were way too overpowering and lacking subtlety e.g. the zucchini flowers, scallops & the honey crumble. On the other hand, the presentation was all gorgeous, the... More

The restaurant is high on the ridge, overlooking Whale Beach. There is an outside area for pre-dinner drinks and then a spacious inside restaurant. Ask for a table by the windows for a spectacular view of the coastline. Excellent cuisine and friendly environment - a treat.

We had a lunch booked for NYE, and I was very happy upon arrival how the team discussed the menu and wine pairing. The food was amazing, as were the views. However we then met Christian the manager and that was the icing on the cake, his service and personal skills made the afternoon on the terrace - nothing was... More

A gift voucher "Breakfast for Two", led us on interesting drive up the Peninsular with some narrow winding roads to Jonah's Hotel and Restaurant. Service on entry was great and we were led to a table with a magnificent view. Breakfast comprised three courses with juices, a home made croissant and coffee (expresso) included. Each course had a choice of... More

Could not help ourselves at the sight of a seafood board on the menu and we did not regret it! Never had oysters with chips before and boy did we miss a great thing?!?! Highly recommend it for the fantastic view, amazing food and lovely staff!

We had tried to stay at the hotel which was unfortunately fully booked, but visited here for dinner. The restaurant is perfect for a special occasion, great views (even in cloudy weather) and exceptional service. The food is nice but we were expecting something exceptional, given the reviews and the price. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the... More

A group of us dined at Jonah's just prior to Christmas for our yearly outing. Having dined here not too long ago I knew what to expect and most certainly wasn't disappointed second time round. Jonah's is a restaurant to enjoy a special evening, and the staff did their best to ensure we had a memorable time. We chose the... More

Our experience was marred by the fact that the window table we thought we had booked was held for another party that was never seated. The food was average and very expensive and the service good but not excellent as expected from a Relais & Chateau restaurant. (Lunch for 5 with wine $800.00)

What a nice way to start the day! Three of us had a very lovely, calm and nicely paced full breakfast. To start we were offered a variety of fresh juices, coffee or tea. The Mango and Guava juices were indeed freshly prepared and outstanding. At our table one choose tea and the other two had coffee. The Cappuccino and... More
