Dining at Bluewater

I did the right thing today and took the little wife out for a dinner date.  After careful research and analysis of all the facts, (which actually means “after intensive Googling”,) I managed to make reservations for the two of us at the Bluewater Grill in Applecross.

The setting looked great from what I could see on the internet, and Applecross looked like it could be a nice bit of neighbourhood, with the river and all that going on.

Now I’m no food critic, but I’ll give you my report.  Who knows, maybe this can start a new career path for me, with someone else paying the bills, whilst the pretty wife and I enjoy all wonderful kinds of restaurants all around WA.

This restaurant has the most awesome setting.  The river and the city skyline in the background is a sure recipe for success. 

Once in a while it’s nice to be in a cultured environment where the down-to-earth “no-worries”, thong-wearing, sleeveless footy-shirt Aussie culture is not too prevalent.  Where the background music is just right, and you don’t see obese kids tearing down the place and screaming at their parents.

IMG_3587The food was great, the service was good and the price was probably not too hefty, although I had to close my eyes and swipe that gold card and pray that my limit is still far away.

But it was worth it.




We walked around and took a few photos in the dark, and realised that a fine drizzle was developing all around us.  We just got into the car and onto the road when heavens opened and heavy showers came down out of nowhere.

We took a drive around this lovely area, and were astonished at the massive palaces around the place.  The people who live around here must be stinking rich.  I hope to join that club someday.

To sum it up, we had a great evening.  If you feel like having a great evening with the love of your life in a decent restaurant , then I can recommend the Bluewater without hesitation.
