My wife and I have been visiting Cafe Tabou since we found the place by accident while on a shopping trip to Perth. The food was great then and it has never wavered in its quality. Service is very good even when the place is stacked out. We have never been disappointed in any choices we made during our visits.... More

I have been a customer of Café Tabou for many years. As soon as we were shown to our table the waiter asked if we would like drinks and I replied that we would have wine. It was then at least 20 minutes before he came back to us to take a wine order. Out of a party of five... More

We came here for dinner one Friday evening. It took us 30 minutes to have our orders taken and the drinks came very slowly. I had the mixed starter and it was absolutely delicious, although it left me with not so much space for a main course. The main was alright, although it was not very visually appealing as it... More

Brilliant ambience in the restaurant. Fantastic offers of good French cuisine, both for lunches, and evening meals. Lovely outside area in the summer for a bowl of mussels, and a fine white wine. Definately recommend, and we will be back soon !

Five of us ventured back to café tabou for a business dinner. Spot on as usual, the mussels in Cider Cream Sauce was delicious so was the chicken in lemon sauce which was full of flavours. The meal was served with friendly and professional staff and sitting outside in the sun made it that bit more special - hope we... More

Fantastic special meal. Every course had attention to detail, innovative and full of flavour. We have eaten in many michelin starred restaurant and this chef could hold his own against them! The selection of wine to go with each course complimented the food. We usually come for lunch but will definitely look forward to your next special event. Thank you

We dropped in for a quick lunch which lasted longer than expected. The service was quite good with reasonable time taken to take orders and serve our meals. The wine selection by the glass was quite good, with the several that we tried being enjoyed. The meals were very nice with the fish and shellfish soup being a real treat.

Pipping hot, and beautifully presented. My husband had the rabbit saddle, with a dijon sauce, beautiful! we never have a sweet, but were tempted, with a caramel ice,... More
