Yet another faultless meal, this time for my husband's 30th birthday. We were greeted with 2 glasses of bubbly on arrival, so thoughtful! The wild garlic amuse bouche was like springtime in a bowl, so fresh and vibrant. My starter of squid was cooked to perfection and my husband's haggis was light and delicately perfumed with herbs and spices. Spot... More

We so enjoyed our meal, I had pork followed by a velvety chocolate dessert, good value. Excellent friendly service and it was so nice not to be hurried. Great ambiance too. They deserve to do well.

Have now visited twice since the restaurant changed hands and what an improvement. The last time we went using our Itison voucher and we were treated no differently than had we paid full price. The food was excellent as was the service and the staff were extremely friendly. If you've been here in the past and were disappointed I'd highly... More

I personally dislike that first question on TripAdvisor when you are asked “ is this the best restaurant you have ever eaten in ? “, because it starts with a negative if you don’t say “yes” immediately, and a negative is definitely not appropriate for North Port in Perth. I reckon that I have possibly had one of the best... More

I would highly recommend this amazing restaurant. We went for a family celebration meal and booked on the basis of previous trip advisor comments. We were not disappointed from start to finish and could not fault the restaurant at all. The restaurant has free parking right outside after 6.00pm. It is at the back of the Perth Concert Hall so...

Hadn't been here since it changed hands. 11 of us for a birthday dinner. We were seated in a separate area of the restaurant. We had the pre theatre menu. Fair selection of starters and mains. Food was tasty if a little on the small size. Two of our party ordered the Haggis starter as a main course, but to... More
