The absolute best!

Dear Aristos Papandroulakis, Carol Jones and the Restaurant Team, As we reflect on the lovely occasion that was our daughters wedding we feel compelled to write to you to thank you once again for your care and professional attention.

We are writing to you all and hope that this letter will be passed on to every one involved with the preparation, organisation and presentation of the event. Aristos Waterfront Rottnest provided a perfect setting for our celebration after a very special ceremony at Bathurst Point. Lara and Sam (Bride and Groom) were blessed with a beautiful sunny autumn day and an unforgettable evening in your restaurant. Our family wedding on Rottnest, so carefully planned, was every thing we wanted it to be, and more.

Both sets of parents were the first to arrive at your wonderful venue and we saw it at its absolute best. Our eyes were on stalks at the fabulous presentation that Carol and her team had achieved. With the still night air, the venue was magical and we can only say you made a wonderful occasion truly memorable. All the staff were wonderful and cheerful, enjoying their work and were very attentive, which made the guests feel welcomed and happy. Special note should go to Laurent, known as Larry to the wedding guests. He provided his own coat to one of the guests who was feeling slightly chilled by the night air.

Aristos you and your organisation should be proud to have such attentive employees. I suspect that Carol has had a hand in the moral of her team and as she is such an empathetic person this follows through to the rest of her staff. The food that you provided was superb. Would you please pass on our sincere thanks to the chef in-charge and his valiant team.

With shows like “Master Chef” we now have a much better understanding of what extreme efforts are involved behind the scene in restaurant kitchens than ever before. The catering team should be congratulated on their efforts. They are a very important part of the proceedings, whilst they are behind the scene (in person) the fruits of their labour are on show for all to see, eat and enjoy. Please once again convey our delight. We were truly impressed with the standard and quality of the food they created.

As Lara’s parents we feel very proud to have been able to provide, with your help, such a special and memorable occasion that will stay in our thoughts for years to come. Just remember that artists of all kinds, be they painters, singers or chefs bring great pleasure to the people they touch. Keep up the excellent work! We will be back for a meal soon, when we are next on Rottnest.

Brilliant lunch!

Yesterday Diane and I had the great pleasure of having lunch at your restaurant.

We enjoyed your Seafood Platter and both of us thought it was the best such platter that we have eaten at any restaurant here in WA; not only was the platter very large containing a marvelous variety of seafood but it was prepared well and served well.

The staff on duty yesterday afternoon (Friday) were skilled and personable and to be comended.

Brownie Points

The feedback that I have had was excellent, very positive, and unanimously enthusiastic! I think I have secured some brownie points at work for (a) thinking of going to Rotto for lunch and (b) picking the venue…. The service was excellent, our glasses were never empty, and lunch was LOVELY…. The boss is pretty fussy and he was really impressed with his chicken… and the fish was cooked to perfection. I need to know which feta you buy for the restaurant – TO DIE FOR… and the platters for entrée were quite the topic of discussion! We were all impressed with the restaurant itself and the table decorations, so all in all an excellent day…….

Many thanks for being an integral part of the Christmas celebrations for ERS… I will have no hesitation at all in recommending Aristos to any of my friends or work associates headed to Rottnest.

Service and food was excellent...

I just thought to drop you an email, our directors had dinner at Aristos Rottnest last Wednesday night and absolutely loved it. We were most impressed with the staff that night, especially since we had not booked and were a group of 12. Service and food was excellent. The staff on roster that night were very accommodating to us and I hope this message reaches them as well.

A most successful conference...

Hi Geoff. I am now home again following a most successful conference on Rottnest. I can say without reservation that a major contributor to the success was the great meal you arranged at Aristos. The seafood was fantastic and the staff most friendly and efficient. All in all a 100% result.

I thank you sincerely for your support and ask that you pass my thanks on to Aaron.

A big THANK YOU...

I have to pass on my absolute delight at how professional you were in organising my function – I asked the Pub and Rottnest Lodge prior to you (weren’t aware Aristos was even over there!!) and hey were rude and unhelpful.You were such a delight to deal with and the night went off a treat – ABSOLUTELY PERFECT – food great, service great and the views great!The cake you made was HUGE and scrumptious – everyone had 2nds and were commenting on it.Such a pleasure dealing with you & a big THANK YOU for your help.

A Father-Daughter Dinner 

On behalf of all who attended the Father-Daughter Dinner on Saturday November 5th, thank you so very much for a wonderful evening.

All reports were the dinner went very smoothly and the food was fabulous. Your kitchen did such a wonderful job getting out so many serves of the same in such a short period of time. Arranging the event, too, was made simple and easy thanks to your efficient Functions staff. Indeed, of the whole camp, dealing with your restaurant was by far the most pleasurable experience.

Finally, I wish to apologise that a small group of attendees arrived late and requested fresh serves of their dinners. This should not have been expected nor requested. Nonetheless, my husband who attended the event, watched your friendly staff agree quickly to the latecomers' request and the kitchen promptly arranged for a fresh batch of fish and chips. The professionalism was astounding.

Thanking you sincerely,

Angela Allan


Our wedding was absolutely amazing...

Thanks again Ally for everything.



You worked your butt off

I just wanted to say thank you for your help in making our listener event in Rotto a huge success. You worked your butt off and did everything to ensure it all went smoothly, so thankyou. Please also pass on our thanks to your amazing team who worked nonstop making coffees and serving food for hours! Many Thanks



The way we were enjoying ourselves

This message is for Aristos please and is to pass on the thanks of the Perth Harriettes who dined there on Friday night.

There were 11 of us and would have been readily identifiable by the way we were enjoying ourselves!

We would especially take this opportunity to thank Larry Gauci for the way he treated us when we first inquired about the evening. He allowed those of us there a generous sample of one of the curries and I know I can speak for all the girls when I say how much we enjoyed them when we returned for our evening meal. Larry was delighted that there were so many Harriettes and he helped make our visit to your restaurant a night to remember. He told us you usually close by 7pm, but I did note that we weren't the last to leave when we departed about 9pm.

Once again, our thanks for a great evening and our special thanks to Larry.

The friendliest at Rottnest

Just would like to let you know that your staff at Aristos Waterfront Rottnest are the friendliest at Rottnest. Over our stay in Jan & Feb 2012, we enjoyed both dine in and takeaway meals at the restaurant. The food was delicious, but what really made it great was the really friendly and accommodating staff. They definitely leave the competition for dead (Dome, the Pub, the strange internet cafe?!). Well done!

Beck and Daniel
