We went to Finlay's after a local recommendation and couldn't pass the local fish option. The fish was indeed very fresh and absolutely delicious and the salads were super fresh and tasty. Extremely friendly service too. Couldn't fault it, highly recommend this spot!

We're on a road trip from Perth and not familiar with the different local types of fish. The guy at the till was very helpful and the three of us chose the king fish. The salad bar was well stocked and plenty of choice. There was more fish than I could finish, certainly no issue with insufficient portion sizes on... More

Finlay's is one of those places that doesn't claim to be anything that it is not, which is refreshing. What you see is what you get, it's unique, friendly, quirky with very good food. We had the big oysters and they were, easily twice the size of the more famous Sydney Rock's, then the grilled Pink Snapper. All in all... More

We visited on Saturday 18/2/2017, it was a quiet night in town and a quiet night at Finlays. But we loved it, we had the local fish (Red Throat Emperor), portion size was good, cooked perfectly, tasty! The staff were friendly and even though it was quiet, we had a really good time. I've been visiting Kalbarri for the last... More

We visited Finlay's on St Valentines night and what a platter of fish and seafood we were served. All fresh from the sea and our host ensured everybody had a great night . Put in on your list of places to eat if you are in the area

Went to Findlays again after a 16 wait, was a bit worried after reding reviews, but had a great feed of grilled snapper which was a bigger than average serving. The fish burgers were great and the salad bar was fresh and tasty. Will be back again sooner than later.

We were looking forward to eating here but when the food arrived my husbands portion of fish and chips were small for how much they cost. I had the mussels in chilli sauce, they were really tough and chewy, we wouldn't go back again.

$35 for a piece of local snapper on a plastic plate with a scoop of chips is rather hefty!!! The "salad bar" was less than average. It's a funky set up and great for a big group with lots of kids however the toilets were DISGUSTING. Would not go back. While the fish was delicious and cooked perfectly it was... More
