The Goose Café Restaurant in Busselton has an unbeatable view over the town's famous jetty and beach. The food lived up to the view – at least for our recent weekend lunch.

I ordered a linguini with prawns ($31.50) and the other adults a fish special ($39.50), while the youngster chose chicken nuggets with chips from the 'Goslings' menu ($10).

Chancy Weather At Busselton Beach

We decided to brave chancy weather to sit on the shaded deck to best enjoy a view of the beach and 2km Busselton jetty – the longest timber piled jetty in the Southern hemisphere – which we had just walked.

There were, however, also tables with views indoors, where dark wood floors are part of a contemporary décor.

Walking Up an Appetite

Busselton Jetty

Some online reviewers have reported long wait times for food but ours came out in reasonable time – perhaps the kitchen has improved, or perhaps because it was not peak season when we visited.

The linguini arrived looking spectacularly colourful with king prawns dotted about a not-over-slushy mixture of grape tomatoes and olives, finished with local olive oil.

There were also some discs of cacciatore sausage, which sounds like an odd combination with seafood, but tasted good.

The fish special was a substantial hunk of banded snapper, dense without being over-dry, served with Asian mushrooms and vegetables.

Service was pleasant and the coffee excellent. We'll be back.
