    Green Jade: The best spring rolls in Bunbury

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Green Jade Asian Restaurant is owned and run by Wally Yip who has many years experience in Chinese restaurants. There was a time way back in the late 1960's when Bunbury had only two Chinese restaurants and Wally started one of them.

    The food here is always fresh and well prepared. Some Chinese restaurants in Bunbury leave a lot to be desired but thankfully the Green Jade menu caters to local tastes without comprising qualityand freshness.

    Good value set lunch menu for $8
    Dine-in or take away menu

    Favorite Dish: I'm particularly partial to the home made spring rolls.

    Chilli prawn Airconditioned inside or enjoy the weather outside Set lunch menu is now $8 Take away menu

    Ex-tensions On The Beach: Tasty fresh salads

    by robertgaz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ex-tensions On The Beach is right on the Back Beach which is Bunbury's most popular and safest beach.

    Enjoy fresh salads, succulent seafood or a tender steak with great views of the Indian Ocean. The restaurant is fully licensed and has a good selection of local beer and wines.

    Favorite Dish: The Caesar Salad with tender pieces of grilled chicken breast, crisp lettuce and other greens, seasoned croutons and a few slivers of anchovies is my favourite. The seafood crepes looked worth trying as well.

    Parade Hotel: On the water

    by robertgaz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Parade Hotel is right on the Leschenault Inlet with picturesque views to the city and white mangroves. You can easily walk there on the footpath all the way from the CBD.

    It's a beautiful spot to relax with a drink or two, watch the boats on the Leschenault Inlet or seeing locals trying their luck at catching crabs.

    And after watching the setting sun you can enjoy a blackboard meal which features fresh local fish, steaks or even a kangaroo fillet. All meals come with an all-you-can-eat-salad-bar which included a crisp green salad; Waldorf, bean or pasta salad with bread rolls.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the kangaroo fillets crusted with native wattle seed and a sweet fig jus. Very tasty but the roo was just a little dry. Being a low fat meat it has to be cooked just right to retain the all natural juices.

    Lovely views over the Leschenault Inlet Kangaroo fillet Crispy salt and pepper squid balls Do try the Bug Ocean... a German style altbier Relax with a drink and watch the sun go down

    Lighthouse Restaurant: Choice mouthwatering chargrilled aged eye fillet

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lighthouse Restaurant overlooks the Indian Ocean by day and is the perfect spot to eat and watch the sun set in the west. At night you can view the city lights of Bunbury's CDB while wining and dining on local fresh produce and award winning South West wines. It is part of the Lighthouse Resort

    Favorite Dish: Aged eye fillet chargrilled on sweet potato mousse, spinach and sultana salad, roast garlic and sticky beef jus with parmesan crisps.

    I'll apologise in advance to my vegetarian friends and even to those meat eaters who prefer their meat dead. But I personally enjoy a mouthwatering "blue" steak if it's perfectly crisp and glistening on the outside and warmed right through. It was so tender I could have sliced through each tender morsel with my fingers. And I washed it down with a rich, ripe berry fruit Cabernet Merlot from Amberley Estate :~)

    Jivin J's: Empty your wallet here

    by robertgaz Updated Apr 22, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not far from the CBD and overlooking the sheltered waters of Leschenault Inlet is Jivin J's waterfront bar and eatery.

    I stopped by for a hot coffee and a piece of cake one fine sunny winter's day to quench my thirst and to take a break from cycling around Bunbury.

    But be warned... there were no prices on the menu and when it was time to settle the bill for two coffee's, two milkshakes and four pieces of cake it came to a whopping $56! I guess you gotta pay for the view and the ambience.

    Jivin J's has recently changed ownership and now trades as Casellas Wine-Tapas-Grill at the same address.

    Prince of Wales Hotel: Pub lunch

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 3, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to mix in with locals for a pub lunch head down to the Prince of Wales in Bunbury's CBD. Meals start from $10 for fish and chips to a $25 thick cut sirloin steak cooked just the way you like it. There's a self serve all-you-can-eat salad bar and also a good selection of local and imported beers and an extensive range of South West wines. You can order and pay for your meal and drinks at the front bar. The Prince of Wales was established in 1882 and apart from a lick of paint or two it has retained much of her original charm.

    Favorite Dish: The Spicy Lamb Warm Thai Salad with tender strips of warm lamb marinated in a mild spicy Thai sauce with chillies and garlic with a fresh garden salad. All washed down with your favourite beverage from the the bar.

    Cost - $16.00

    Update 04/06/07 -

    Not only can you get a reasonable pub lunch but the Prince of Wales also has an evening menu. So at a recent family gathering I tried the Grilled Snapper topped with Creamy Garlic Prawns served with french fries. Naturally you can help yourself to the all-you-can-eat salad bar.

    Cost - $21.00

    Aunty Ria's Restaurant: Italian Food with a view

    by robertgaz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aunty Ria's Restaurant is beautifully located on the waterfront near the CBD overlooking the wide expanse of Koombana Bay.

    The main fare is Italian with a good selection of entrees & starters and a typical array of main courses including Pesce (fish), Carne (meat) and Pollo (chicken). There are also pasta dishes and a variety of woodfired pizzas.

    The selection of wines isn't extensive but more than acceptable for all wine tastes. Most of the wines are local and priced from $26.00 a bottle.

    To finish off there are also cakes to tempt your sweet tooth with freshly brewed coffee to wash it down with.

    Favorite Dish: Being a carne lover I really enjoyed the Koombana Beef which is a tender Scotch Fillet cooked exactly how you like it and is served with fresh prawns in a creamy port wine sauce.

    I'm not a big fan of sauces particularly with rare meat because it detracts from the flavour of the natural juices so I simply asked them to serve mine without sauce. The bottle of Churchview Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was all the sauce I needed ;~)

    Walkabout Café: True blue Aussie dining

    by robertgaz Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first known VT meeting in Bunbury was held on a chilly Friday night on the 15th June 2007.

    The occassion was to welcome imstress (Jen) and hubby, Basil to Bunbury in WA.

    The Walkabout Café was the chosen venue for a bit of good ol' Aussie food and atmosphere.

    Steaks are served as a half kilo cut of meat cooked to your liking. I wanted to give my good friends from Singapore a taste of good Aussie fare washed down with a glass of local red wine.

    It was a real pleasure to sit down and "chew the fat" with a couple of good friends at a popular local eatery.

    Favorite Dish: The restaurant is open 7 days a week from 11am for lunch right through till late for dinner and has it's own licensed bar with local beers and wines.

    The steaks are cooked exactly to your liking and are served in half kilo portions with salad and chips. Medium to well cooked steaks take an extra half hour to cook so please take this into consideration when ordering.

    I can highly recommend the 450g rare Pepper Steak which is a sirloin cut and coated with a crust of black peppercorns.

    Josephine's: Best value lunch menu

    by robertgaz Updated Nov 29, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Josephine's sets the standard for a really great value lunch.

    The food is fantastic with most lunch specials priced at $14.50. The mains come with salad and chips.

    The a la carte menu prices are roughly double compared to the day menu.

    The restaurant is licensed with full bar facilities and a great beer and wine selection at pub prices.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed my Beef Parmigiana which was served with a generous portion of tender beef cutlets smothered in a rich tomato sauce and melted cheese topping.

    And for dessert I topped up a the Crème brûlée which consisted of a rich custard topped with sugar caramelised under a blowtorch. This wa served with a sponge finger and freshly whipped cream.

    That needed a long, strong machiatto to wash it all down with!

    Top of the Town Restaurant: Highest in town

    by robertgaz Updated Feb 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Top of the Town Restaurant has been a part of the local scene for a very long time with only one name change as far as I can recall (it was previously known as "The Phoenician Restaurant".

    I believe it has always been run by the very affable Johny Ghandour who has been in the business for 28 years.

    The decor doesn't seem to have changed a great deal over the years either with polished pine wall panelling and mediterannean red terracotta floor tiles. For me, it's like stepping back in time and reliving the 70's right down to the decadic dial phone which requires a deft digit for dialling out!

    They offer A La Carte, Grill or Smorgasbord dining and are very popular for group bookings including weddings. Sunday is smorgasbord night which costs $22 for adults and $10 for kids under 12. It's an all you can eat affair which I now take as an offer and not a challenge!

    Great value and a good selection of freshly prepared mediterranean style dishes including beef, chicken, fish, various hot vegetable dishes and crispy salads. Once you've had your main meal you can finish off with dessert, including fresh fruit and a cheese platter.

    Tea and coffee is included in the price of the smorgasbord.

    Occasionally, they have a Lebanese smorgasbord night complete with some local "belly dancers" for your viewing pleasure.

    The restaurant is licensed with it's own bar area for pre dinner drinks at reasonable prices. Because it is located on the 4th floor there are really good views over Bunbury to enjoy. If you make a booking please request a window table. I'm certain Johny will oblige if he can.

    Update 18th February 2008: Sadly, the Top of the Town Restaurant has closed down after some three decades of filling bellies. There is talk that may re-open at a new location in town but I will have to let you know later if and when that happens.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A delightful restaurant and one of the most rewarded restaurants in the South West. Louisa's reataurant is set in a beautifully restored californian bunglow. The food is fresh and delicious and the chef uses a lot of the local produce. Try the roast potatoes with the freshly made chilli sauce.

    Parade Hotel: spectacular view from the terrace

    by sirgaw Written Mar 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was recommended that we have an evening meal in the Parade Hotel, so after a few wrong turns finally found the pub and from street level it did not look all that flash, but we went in anyway and particularly when we'd read on a notice board that Tuesday's is steak night and at the very reasonable $16.50 each for steak the way you like it, chips and self service salad buffet.

    When we entered, the first impression was blown away by the spectacular setting with a large wooden terrace built over the picturesque Leschenault Inlet.

    We grabbed a drink at the bar (gin squash for Lady Gaw and beer for me) and then placed our order for a steak each. We then went onto the terrace and watched the spectacle of the sun setting over the city of Bunbury while the almost full moon rose in the east - and both were mirrored in the large waterway. We found out that it is quite common to see dolphins swimming in the inlet and we certainly saw many water birds doing their last circuit and bump for their day before heading to their nests and a good nights sleep.

    The steaks arrived about 15 minutes later and if we were in the area on a Wednesday evening we would have enjoyed chilli mussels or pasta and a complimentary glass of wine AND garlic bread for the princely sum of $14.50 per person - Lady Gaw would have been pleased as there would have been more money available for the usual souvenirs.

    All up a great experience sitting on that deck and oh, by the way, the hotel does have motel style accommodation available.

    Tranquil setting

    Bernadettes Kitchen: good enough for the workers

    by sirgaw Written Mar 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OK this is a rare find and not the sort of place that visitors to Bunbury would necessarily stop for a snack or meal - but they should.

    Our first clue to good tucker (food) was the blue collared workers streaming towards the eatery - and those guys are usually fastidious eaters who want a substantial meal or snack.

    What attracted us was the egg and bacon roll with choice of sauce for breakfast. Yes we should have been watching our cholesterol, but who cares as we were on holidays. About 10 minutes later our rolls were passed over to us and they were a feast unto themselves - a 2 hander and they were so large, they required 2 hands and off course the chomping department. A feast for $5.

    Coffee, tea, cold drinks and lots of other eating goodies at very reasonable prices.

    Kinkellas Bar & Restaurant: Great value

    by robertgaz Updated Nov 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great value pub meals with an average price of around $20 per meal. The most expensive is the Reef 'n' Beef which is a steak topped with grilled prawns.

    My tender sirloin steak was priced at $21 and came with chips and some greens. There is also an all-you-can-eat salad bar where you can help yourself.

    Beer and wine prices are very reasonable. I paid $19 for a bottle of Howling Wolves Shiraz from Margaret River. Normally I would expect tp pay around $30 at other licensed restuarants.

    Favorite Dish: I thoroughly enjoyed my juicy rare sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection right down to the thin chargrilled crust.
