eat at whalers
With a smart outdoor deck overlooking Encounter Bay and Wright Island, there are few finer places to be on a warm summer’s afternoon. Asian flavours grace several, entrées, like their spring rolls or prawn pots tweaked with lemongrass and ginger or chilli and garlic. Main dishes reflect a more Mediterranean bias: crayfish accompanied with tomato and pesto, risotto stuffed capsicum, and a chicken roulade packed with cheese and baby spinach. In season, the menu includes a strong selection of seafood specials.
