During our 3 days stay on Rottnest we had dinner twice in Aristos and it was very good on both nights. A very big choice on the menu, it can be pricey depending upon what you order, but there is limited choice on Rottnest and this is in a lovely position. The portions are very generous. The staff are friendly.... More

A friend and I opted for the seafood basket. It was very tasty albeit overpriced. There are better value restaurants in WA. I guess being the major beachside restaurant on Rottnest means you have to pay a surcharge. But that's free market capitalism for you. The service was good and the setting was very relaxed.

Great setting overlooking the turquoise waters of Rottnest Island. Good service and enjoyable food. Wide choice of food and drinks, and the verandah is a very nice place to enjoy a meal.

The restaurant has a gorgeous view of the harbour. It is open and spacious. The food is yummy especially the seafood basket.BUT the best thing is the young people who provide the service. They are polite, helpful and very kind. We needed ice for a swollen ankle and they could not have been more helpful.

Had dinner here 2 nights in a row just recently. First time was half crayfish mornay with some fish. Crayfish was very nice but fish was only fair. Entree of cooked prawns was good. The next night we shared some pizza for an entree and followed up with seafood chowder which was lovely and warming on a cool night.

Had lunch and dinner at this restaurant while staying at Rottnest Island. Like all restaurants on Rottnest the meals can be a bit pricey depending what you order. Had a nice size steak with mash and some veggies, partner had a pizza which was very cheesy without much else. The outlook is lovely over the bay. Nice spot to have... More

There's not a lot of choice on this island paradise. At least once a year we do a 3 night stay, always eating out at a different spot each night. Aristos always delivers with a reasonable seafood menu, and the view of activity on the bay makes it a good spot for coffee. Recently we enjoyed grilled King George Whiting... More

If you're staying overnight on the island then fish and chips with a view of the sea makes this worthwhile. The service was very quick and the price is reasonable for the island.
