Ok, so you think pub food and immediately images of fish and chips, chicken parmigiana and steak come to mind. Looking at the Panorama menu, you could be forgiven for thinking it's just like any other pub.
But you'd be wrong.
Not only do you have a beautiful view over Mullaloo Beach to the Indian Ocean, especially at sunset, but the food here is fantastic. We started with a drink from the bar but skipped entrée as we had our hearts set on dessert.
Our waitress was very helpful and friendly, and was able to accommodate our requests, which included swapping the menu around slightly to combine two menu items into one meal. She also offered to take a picture for us as we were taking an arm's length shot on the balcony. They were short staffed on the night so everything took a little longer than average. This did not worry us as we were happy to sit back and relax and there were apologies for the wait.
The food when it came was delicious. My steak was cooked to perfection and the cabernet merlot jus - well, let's just say I wish I could make jus that good! The potatoes were soft, carrots firm but not hard and the sugar snap peas fresh and crisp.
The wine list was varied, with many local WA wines from Margaret River on offer. Then to dessert... we found it difficult to decide so we went for the share tasting plate. YUM! This included chocolate oblivion, berry muffin ice cream, salted chocolate tart, creme caramel and eton mess. Unfortunately there are no pictures of this as it was so enticing we dived right in before I thought of getting a picture! The creme caramel was the best I've eaten and the warm chocolate oblivion with chocolate sauce melted in my mouth. Any one of the desserts would have been lovely, but to taste them all was even better!
If you have not been here before and are expecting a decent pub meal, you will get that and more. Making a reservation was convenient and easy via on-line booking, or if you prefer to speak to someone you can book by phone. They are open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
