The ambience at the Zoo is lovely, an open space restaurant. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was lovely, in fact we think it was the best we had in Broome even in comparison with other well known restaurants there.

Take a seat in the old feeding house of the zoological gardens and be fed in style. If you're lucky, you may be treated to live music under the stars. Great for a romantic dinner... or breakfast.
