Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - By DENISE S. CAHILL

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

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.
