A wonderful discovery in the Australian bush just near the superb beaches of Dunsborough, WA ! Who would have thought such a gourmet gem could be hidden in the forest. Exquisite delicate invention on all corners of every dish! A great moment of degustation for all ages!

On recent trips down south to the Margaret River area, we have travelled past the Goanna Gallery/Bush Café many times & have said to each other that we should stop in there for lunch one day. Some time ago, we actually drove in but couldn’t find a parking spot as the place was packed. We thought ahead on our recent... More

Dear Bob M, I am so sorry to hear that what sounds like a great experience with us was marred by the Entertainment Card issue. You certainly should have been able to use the card unless it was one of the few dates when it is not valid: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day,... More

We arrived without a booking and managed to get a table for 7 people. The kids menu was perfect for a 4 year old and not too large. It's been the first meal she has eaten all of it and played with the activity pack that came with the meal. The food for us grown ups while being a few... More

Hi Ezza25, Thrilled your daughter enjoyed her meal, we know how tricky it can be to dine out with little ones. Also very pleased to hear your thoughts on the food and that is was a worthy end to your Easter break Here's hoping we are able to welcome you back in the future.. The Goanna Team More

Seriously amazing food. We had the aranchini, gnocchi and the chicken with noodles and it was the best meal we've had in ages. They were great with our daughter and had a small play area which made the meal easy and enjoyable for us. However, the star of the day was the food - we'll definitely come again!

We stopped for lunch here. Great menu, vegetarian dips was delicious as were the mushroom arancini balls and the brusket burger. Staff were very friendly and the surroundings were lovely to admire while dining. Its pet friendly and plenty of parking. Well worth a visit.

Went here for breakfast one morning based on a recommendation from a local. Didn't disappoint, fresh, wholesome food and delicious. We returned a couple of days later as my husband wanted to try the Indonesian breakfast which was yum yum.

Hi luvsHolidayslots, Our Indo Breakfast is a bit of a winner, think we would be boycotted by half of Dunsborough if we ever take it off the menu! Very glad to hear that you had 2 good experiences. Hope see you again if you are back in the area :) The Goanna Team More

Went today with my vegetarian friend. We decided on the taster platter for $55. It came in good time and we were allowed dogs as long as they stayed on the leash. Food was good, rustic with many flavours. Staff were friendly, place was clean and well equipped. Menu was a little sparse. Would visit again

Thank Charles J

Hi Charles J, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our platter for 2. We keep our menu small so that we can cook as much as possible fresh to order and change it regularly to keep it interesting :) Hope to see you again soon The Goanna Team More

My trip to the area was due to work but I want to come back here with my daughter. Great kids menu and play area for the little ones. Food takes a while but a non-issue as you can take the opportunity to slow down, enjoy the surroundings and sculpture walk. Even bought something from the gift shop I wouldn't... More

Thank you for your review, we look forward to welcoming you back with your family. Unfortunately food can take a little while at very busy times as we pride ourselves on cooking fresh, so we are pleased that you saw the silver lining. And we do have some lovely locally made pieces in the shop :) More
