Best food I’ve had in a long time
The food is beautifully fresh and the bush inspired flavours so delicate they melt in the mouth


Breathtaking food experience
This was one of the most memorable meals we have ever had- adults had entree and main, children had mains and dessert. We were all so impressed by the creative menu, the delicious flavours, the use of local produce to create the most amazing combinations. Staff were knowledgeable and super friendly. It's an absolute jewel of a place to have dinner, there's a few things that could be done to improve surrounds and comfort, but they keep it real and remind you that you are in remote WA - well worth the 220km drive from Broome.


Fantastic meal. 5 star quality and design . Great value . Walked out impressed and full.


The food was Devine the experience unforgettable, the chefs and waitress explained each serving if you go to cape leveque, don't miss out do the 9 course Degustation .excellent


Without doubt, the best food and service on the planet. Sensational.


Best food on the planet


Bush Tucker Treat
We had an overnight night stay at Kooljaman. Decided to treat ourselves to dinner. Dinner was exceptional and the different flavours well thought out. Loved tasting some of the local bush ingredients. Staff were exceptional with there knowledge of the meals and the indigenous flavours. Thank you. Just a shame we had no room for dessert. Maybe next time....


We stayed in a safari tent for three nights and dined at Raugi's on two of these. It was amazing! The beautiful view as the sun set, the friendly but very knowledgeable waiting staff and the 5 star meals all made for a wonderful experience. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning- the menu was a far cry from the usual bacon and eggs! The chefs should be congratulated on creating such amazing dishes in such a remote, yet beautiful part of our country.


Really different flavours in a beautiful remote setting
We had the beetroot salad and vegetarian tasting plate, both were wonderful, with rich,varied flavours based on a fusion of French and indigenous cuisine. All of this looking at the sea in a very remote setting on the Dampier Peninsula, with attentive service . Strongly recommended.

Definitely Worth the drive
Dining at Raugi's restaurant was a fabulous culinary experience and worth every bit of the drive up the unsealed road of the Dampier Peninsula. It seems incredible to find fine dining at such a remote location. The taste sensations of the food were simply amazing and wonderful use of bush tucker. Given the high quality of the food I think the menu pricing was very reasonable. Well done chefs!!!


Worth the Drive Up the Dampier Peninsula
Dining at Raugi's restaurant was a fabulous culinary experience and worth every bit of the drive up the unsealed road of the Dampier Peninsula. It seems incredible to find fine dining at such a remote location. The taste sensations of the food were simply amazing and wonderful use of bush tucker. Part of the entertainment is being able to see the chefs cooking and assembling the concoctions. They work really hard and it shows in the pride of the plating up of dishes. Given the high quality of the food I think the menu pricing was very reasonable. Well done chefs!!!


Magic setting, amazing menu
The chef here creates an innovative menu with an emphasis on showcasing local bush food. All dishes are finished beautifully



This place was amazing, incredible high class delicious food in a natural bush setting
We were so impressed. Food was exquisite - local produce and game/fish done with a flair I have not yet seen. You cannot believe you are eating this incredible tasting gourmet food whilst looking over unspoiled coastline and bush. This chef needs more than a prize. All the staff was excellent but the chef is out of this world.


This restaurant is remarkable. The quality of the food and the presentation were the best we have EVER had. The mixture of fresh local products and bush tucker was very impressive. Outstanding chefs and waitstaff.


Recently had a few days staying up at stunning Cape Leveque & we loved the fabulous food & friendly service at Raugi's Restaurant... we will definitely be back... thanks guys it was gr8!!!


Exceptional food in the middle of nowhere. A real find


Relaxed class in the outback
Lucky enough to live in Melbourne and have enjoyed meals at Attica, Vue, Brae.... all trying too hard to out do each other. Rewarded for our journey to WA paradise with the best all round dining experience of our 45 years. BYO, under the stars, small diverse menu, perfectly priced, honest friendly authentic wait staff. Congratulations.



Awesome food and location. Thank you!!


Stunning to find such great food in such a perfect setting. All local produce beautifully prepared and presented, based on local bush tucker.


Delicious meals based on local produce. Amazing presentation. Friendly service.


Wonderful relaxing atmosphere,the food was amazing,cooked to perfection ,utilising local produce and presentation was unbelievable! Definitely a fine dining experience I would recommend to everyone.


Clever infusion of flavours using local products with a French influence. Memorable. Highly recommended.



Michelin Restaurant in remote WA
Amazing flavours and textures... The chef is on a mission to succeed and this man has exceeded all expectations.... He is in the middle of nowhere (challenging enough) and produces ridiculously outstanding food of a Michelin star level.... Incredible .... Any chef that needs to run down the road for a forgotten ingredient ... This place has no option and instead uses the native flavours and textures to create masterpieces.... Genius


Simply Outstanding
Simply outstanding! Michelin star food in the outback. HIGHLY recommended (book in advance to avoid disappointment).


Outstanding meals every time. Unique and memorable. Love the use of local native produce. Can't get enough ??????????


Cape Leveque is an amazing place with scenery that commands almost every superlative you can imagine. Dining under the stars is an experience not to be missed. We shared a lamb starter that promised extensive use of local and native produce, and it was delicious. Indeed, all three courses used a wide range of native ingredients, creating a vivid picture on a plate. Maybe one or two ingredients too many - taste bud overload, but we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate. Bringing your own wine is highly recommended as you cannot purchase alcohol once there. We also bought the Raugis muesli for our breakfast and enjoyed their food st both ends of our day


This is the best restaurant I have been to in all my days of travelling around the world and eating all differing cuisines. 100% purely beautiful and quality food!

A brilliant restaurant. Really imaginative and innovative food using many "bush tucker " ingredients. Wonderful flavours and exceptional presentation. Set in the atmospheric surrounds of Cape Leveque on the Dampier Peninsula in WA . Not to be missed! Excellent and friendly service.


A group of 6 friends, we arrived for a 3 night stay by light aircraft-sure beats the dysty drive in! Like many others before us thus year, we were blown away by the wonderful food, and SO unexpected in this location! I had the bush tasting plate, which was so well presented, beautifully cooked and clearly demonstrated the chef's skills and commitment to great preparation using bush tucker ingredients to showcase bush foods snd local produce! Highly recommended!!! Wonderful service complemented the efforts of the tiny kitchen staff - a lesson to many other kitchens here - work with what you have, work hard BUT know your limitations for serving numbers, and spread your bookings accordingly. FABULOUS!


WOW! Best meal I have ever had. It was a 5 star meal, presentation was fantastic, it was a taste sensation and best part was local food used. Just delicious. Valentina our waitress was delightful and friendly, Marky assistant chef chatted to us about rugby and Joe chef was brilliant in the kitchen. Cannot speak highly enough of the service. Well worth a trip to Kooljaman just for the food. Congratulations Raugis a wonderful experience


Laat nite four of use had dinner at this magnificent restaurant We were waited on by the magnificent Valentina who was first class She knew the entire menu and could answer any questions about this and the environment of where some of the local foods and berries were grown and sourced Our chef was Joe and he was assisted Markey the presentation was 10/10 not to mention the taste and smells of the dishes to die for 100% for presentation too well done Raugis
