Fodor's Review

Stylish and hip yet comfortable, Whet's draws visitors and locals with its outdoor deck, perfect for long lunches and sunset cocktails; Modern Australian food, wine, and service; and an on-site boutique cinema. Regional and seasonal ingredients, including plenty of local seafood, are deftly combined in fresh, simple dishes with Asian and Mediterranean influences. Gluten-free and vegetarian meals are available, as are healthy options for kids. Booking ahead is a good idea at peak visitor times. Whet Flicks, a laid-back licensed 24-seat cinema upstairs, runs daily sessions of pre-DVD-release movies. Relax in air-conditioned comfort on beanbags, recliners, or leather lounges and enjoy tapas-style snacks with the film.
