Rotto restaurant aims to please all
THOMSONS Rottnest has opened its doors for everyone on the island, from those walking in off the beach and from boats to families and international visitors.
Executive general manager Tom Cykowski said the business was trying to achieve a menu that appealed to all on the island, including locals and boaties.
“We use WA produce and have a price point similar to the mainland,” Mr Cykowski said.
The seafood platter had become the signature dish, according to Mr Cykowski, and WHAT: Thomsons
WHERE: Rottnest Island
WHEN: Mondays to Sundays, 11am to late; Kiosk Mondays to Sundays, 8am to 4pm

was a popular order from international visitors.
“They’re getting the best West Australian seafood,” he said.
The octopus is from Fremantle, the prawns come from Exmouth and the crayfish is caught in WA waters.
There are several children’s meals on the menu and Mr Cykowski said a family of four could eat for less than $100.
Mr Cykowski said there was a variety of local and international wines in the restaurant’s dedicated wine space.
He said that once customers chose their wine, they could enjoy it at the bar, in the lounge area or relax in the restaurant.
Thomsons is the second venture on Rottnest Island for the owners, who are also behind Pinky’s Eco Retreat, a beachside eco-tent resort that is expected to be completed in October.
