We were seated at the window so had a lovely view. The round table made for easy conversation which we all enjoyed. The service and meals were excellent. We were all very impressed and will return again.

For events I feel that the cafe need to advise patrons of which gate to enter. We basically walked the entire stadium to our gate to be told to go to another gate where we got priority entry, this should be stated on all correspondence from Cafe.
They rang to confirm time they could of advised gate.
Other than that food was amazing, views come on its Perth the views are amazing.

I thought the bill paying experience was a bit lack luster with staff looking overwhelmed with the volume of people lining up to pay, plus the idiots who tried to do a runner.
Drinks are reasonably priced and the staff and lovely.
Definitely will be back again

Dinner with friends before Queen concert

Everything was great with restaurant and staff good only issue was how we had to access the restaurant and then the difficulty we had then accessing our seating on the grassed area we had to walk miles and then we had exit the stadium and go through all checks again , must be a better way of this being done.
This would definitely put us off booking again, but enjoyed the dinner .

I was very impressed with the Customer Service. We had a high table but after booking a broke my wrist and I would have had a problem getting up and down. The waitperson called her supervisor and she swapped our seating.

On the booking email it said entry at gate D, but on walking round to that gate, we were told entry was at gate C. Staff outside the venue were not well informed. We had long wait to get in, lucky we arrived early. Food was ok value for money, had to chase wait staff for water, plus ordering drinks. No City View, just a wall.

We love the venue for lots of reasons. The view is actually the least excuse we consider for going there.
The food, it’s quality and affordability is excellent and the service has always been friendly and efficient.
Then the view is the cherry on top.
We love taking visitors there to really give them an experience.
Also it’s quiet and that is a real consideration too.

This place has a priceless river/city review. It is a great place for coffee, breakfast and lunch. Plenty of parking nearby.

Lunch menu is bit simple. But they are changing its menu soon I heard.

Overall, I am happy with this place.

Disappointed this time Fish was tasteless very thin and looked like it came from a cheap supermarket package. Lasagne was thin and runny with little taste and it was just warm. Plse pick up food value or you will not have repeat customers. It is at the moment jist a cafe with a view, you need something to draw people back again and again.

I only come for the view. One very good waitress who has been there from the start, short dark haired, dark skinned young girl. The Irish girl taking the order too snappy. What’s the rush?! No queue, no one behind me just kept..is that all?

Was promised a 10% discount as the WACA has advertised for their members and was told they were no longer honouring it, despite it still being on the WACA’s website.

What an exceptional location an city/river view. Easy parking an lift upto plaza level works well for all. While it is a small breakfast menu the meal size was very good. It is not table service, but the staff attended to providing water an clearing the dishes promptly. They were all very friendly an courteous - everyone was greeted on arrival an when leaving. My only criticism was the meal was not very hot. We will certainly be returning.

There’s got to be a better way for a large crowd pre-game to order their food quickly without queuing at the front bar and crowding that area as people are trying to move through. At peak times, more than two staff taking orders would make the cafe more efficient. The food and service made up for this hiccup though, which was overall very good. One idea would be a food pre-booking service through your website for those who have made a table booking. That way the food can be served quickly without the need to queue.

City view cafe was a great refuge from the noise and crowds at the Perth Test. I was pleased that the cafe stayed open til after the end of the first session on Sunday the 4th day of the test so I could enjoy a nice glass of wine in air conditioned comfort looking out over the river to the city.

Very nice new chic atmosphere with a beautiful view to river. Staffs were nice and friendly . The food was delicious and very good for the price . The only thing was the door of the restaurant was opened so few flies were in which bothered us while having food. Maybe in summer time its a good idea to leave the door closed. Overally, I will go back again. Thank you

Loved the atmosphere - Avo on Toast was delish! Service was amazing & chairs were comfortable. Only thing I’d improve on is the signage - you wouldn’t know you guys exsisted if you walked past. Other than that we will be back!

Our party of 15 thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast experience. Drinks and food were received promptly. The staff were very polite and friendly. Breakfast menu would have been better if pancakes, eggs benedict and muesli were available. The view from the cafe is very pleasant and we will return.

I went to this restaurant the week before and although I liked the food, I thought that the portion was very small. On this occasion, the size was perfect: the chicken was almost twice the size this time. The first time I ordered the charred cos with chicken and the second time the chicken with roasted pumpkin and quinoa. They both cost the same amount of money, both delicious but the portions completely different.
