As usual, Matt and Jen looked after us well. Their passion for local produce, even the salt, shows a commitment to share with customers the best of the Narooma amd south coast region. And with Local chefs and a growing list, its life, and dining,as it should be!

This quality restaurant with its fantastic views and service never fails to disappoint. A gifted chef who serves up delicious food with great presentation. Attentive friendly service. We always look forward to a dinner at The Whale. To the reviewer who stated they could buy a leg of lamb for $30 & were disappointed having to pay that for their... More

Amazing food and service. We keep coming here for the fine dining without the big city prices. Million Dollar view from every seat.

This place is special - once again the food was amazing - we tried some oysters, immediately ordered some more, realized we may not have needed them when mains came out. Gnocchi - divine; aged steak w outrageously Delish sauce; tuna perfect w rich sauce - & not a dainty serve; yummy NZ Pinot & managed to push through to... More

We had high expectations after reading other reviews, and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic. Unlike some restaurants where food seems to be designed to impress you rather than for you to enjoy, the flavours in each dish married and complemented each other. We were hard pressed to pick a winner between the beef, smoked lamb or tuna,... More

Great affordable meal for the family, excellent service & special effort to source produce locally. We only had mains & all were the right size with taste buds working overtime. Can't understand why the sign doesn't get updated to reflect a true 'fine dining' experience, reads like it's Flag Motel with an eatery attached. All up, highly recommended.

This is the first review I have written for Trip Advisor, but I decided it was a must for this Gem of a restaurant in Narooma! From start to finish, the dining experience was exceptional, as beautiful if not better than any resort-style restaurant in the likes of Noosa. Cocktail in the Ocean Lounge, incredibly delicious food from artisan bread,... More

We have been going to Narooma on our summer holiday for 6 years and only discovered the Whale Restaurant this year. Food was excellent (my wife and I her sister wanted to lick the plate clean from their potato gnocchi entree). Views superb and service excellent. All ingredients sourced locally and suitable for families or couples. Would recommend booking during... More

We recently had a lovely dinner at The Whale Restuarant in Narooma. The food was delicious and staff efficient and attentive. The view over the mouth of the inlet is magnificent. Highly recommend this Restaurant.
