Suspended on The Breakwater s mezzanine
level is Ishka Restaurant, one of Perth s most
spectacular dining experiences.
Overlooking the buzzing Lower Deck, and
sharing the space s glamorous chandeliers, Ishka
is right in the thick of the action, yet separate
enough to permeate a warm, intimate ambience.
The private dining room at Ishka is ideal for
dinner parties, seating up to 14 guests. Specially
designed lunch and dinner menus are available
for group bookings, and the cuisine has a modern
Australian theme with lots of WA seafood.
It may have taken several years of planning and
idea-nurturing before The Breakwater opened its
doors but there are few who won t agree that the
wait has been well worth it.
With million-dollar views, opulent decor and a
resort-like atmosphere, The Breakwater sets a new
benchmark in sophisticated, yet relaxed, wining
and dining in Western Australia.
With its sophisticated ambience, Reid's
Lounge is ideal for stylish cocktail parties.
