At the time of updating covid restrictions for hospitality are still in place in some states and may change throughout the winter of 2022. Be sure to call as some restaurants have temporary requirements such as reservations, set menus and in house guests only.
There’s something special about a restaurant with a view, especially when you’re on a holiday. It brings a sense of relaxation and contentment that is hard to top.
With the Broome area renowned for its sunsets, red dirt and long beaches, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the views drink in hand. Here are a few of my personal favourite Broome restaurants with a view to add to your holiday itinerary!
The Sunset Bar & Grill at Cable Beach Club Resort
April/Easter 2022 Update – Temporarily limited to hotel guests only in the Grill and you should book in advance (you can call to check for last-minute availability due to cancellations if not in house). The bar is still taking public walk-ins on a first-come basis so get in early to avoid disappointment.
My number one choice of Broome restaurants with a view is the Sunset Bar & Grill which looks over the beautiful Cable Beach. The view over white sand and aqua water by day and palm tree clad sunsets by night is possibly one of the most famous restaurant views in Australia.
Open for Breakfast and Dinner, the Sunset Bar & Grill is a great place to finish a long walk along the beach from Gantheaume Point or to settle in for an afternoon and dinner sunset session.
In peak season get in early for a good table as their iconic sunset view is on many peoples bucket list!

The Bay Club at The Mangrove Hotel
Located a couple of minutes walk from the heart of Broome, the Bay Clubs high position offers the best views in town over Roebuck Bay.
The Mangrove hotel is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner so you can call in for a beer and a meal at a time that suits you. Good all year round, its quiet and relaxing in the wet or full of atmosphere on weekends and during the dry season when there is often live music
To visit from Cable Beach catch the town bus which stops nearby.
Jacks Bar & Restaurant at Ramada Eco Beach Resort
Do you like a food adventure? Then this is the restaurant for you!
To get to Jacks you will need to hire a car* head a 100km down the highway and then venture down 10km of gravel road. After parking up in the visitors car park, you walk down a small coastal road, climb up the steps and it opens up on the view above. That’s when you realise all your effort was worthwhile and you should have booked a week at the resort not just lunch!
*Broome Broome Car rentals are great budget option as they will let you take a 2wd in the dry season

Matso’s Brewery in Broome Town
With water views from verandah and filtered views from the Beer Garden its well worth a visit to Matso’s, one of Australia’s most famous breweries. They serve up tasting paddles with everything from Pale Ales to specialty Mango Beer.
Matso’s is walking distance from town or you can catch the town bus to the door if you are staying at Cable Beach Club Resort or other Cable Beach hotels.
