We use this restaurant on a regular basis when we visit Perth. It is still good food but something has changed.The food is just a shade less exciting than the last couple of years. Presentation is a bit slap dash with specks on the plate. So after years of being our number 1 choice we rate it on the several... More

Came here with a large group of colleagues for dinner. The food was okay, the fresh, rich and deep French flavours were not really there, but it was a nice meal nevertheless. The fish was great, I expect this is locally sourced too. A reasonably okay place to eat, again I would think it's a bit overpriced for what it's... More

Never disappoints. But this time the entrecôte steak left me speechless. It was delicious. Normally I struggle to eat a steak, last nights generous steak melted in my mouth. You must go if in Perth.

Always like having a lunch here. Love the "French" atmosphere and lovely food. On a sunny day - it does happen in Perth sometime - it's lovely to get an outside table in the square and pretend you're actually in France.

We have not been in Perth for a while, but decided to visit last week and have lunch. We were last at Cafe Tabou some time ago, but the set lunch looked reasonable and interesting. The starters were good - poached egg, black pudding haggis & croutons with salad was quite large & the deep fried brie was excellent. We... More
