Dean Ray himself was absolutely wonderful to watch and he really warmed the atmosphere on Thursday. The food was delightful the service is sharp, all restaurants in Perth should learn from this place. Only negative was a table of 'bogan' soccer mums in the middle of the room that were pissed and mouthy and spoilt the atmosphere of this place.we... More

Had been 12yrs since we last visited with a rowdy group so did not enjoy the experience but thought it would was time to take a chance for our wedding anniversary (22nd) and when we arrived at the Hyatt centre my wife was already going cold on me. Once we entered Friends we noticed the atmosphere was more appealing than... More

I have been to Friends Restaurant many times for either lunch or celebratory dinners and every time have been more than happy with the Service, Food and Wine. Being able to look out over the Swan River is so relaxing. I have no hesitation in recommending Friends Restaurant.

I have visited this restaurant in several occasions with entertainment. On each occasion have joined a larger table. There was conversation between other guests at the table which makes it interesting and enjoyable but the entertainment is always a great part of the experience. Food was simple but fresh and tasty and little choice as it is priced as a... More

Fantastic service, attentive and friendly service. Just a wonderful experience all round and we felt very special. The food has always been amazing and I would go again without hesitation. An exquisite experience from start to finish.

The night we selected to go for a meal was for a special occasion. Coincidentally it was also a night when Friends had one of their regular entertainment evenings. Consequently we were packed in. We were quickly shown to our shared table where drink orders were quickly taken. I can't comment on the wine list as neither my wife or... More

Have been here twice on deals. Once for a music cover - David Bowie cover was excellent - but both times felt that everything was overpriced and not very special. The truffle degustation was very over rated. I enjoyed the food, but my other 3 dining companions were very unimpressed. The service was outstanding but a restaurant needs more than... More

I walked in and thought what have I done. The old fashioned decor made me think that I was in for an evening of disappointment, but I am happy to say I was completely wrong. The food was good, but the service was great. Old fashioned service that you don't find often anymore which paired really well with the decor... More

I took my family to Friends... to celebrate a birthday. The experience was extraordinary. We were surprised by the chef and the service is 11 out of 10! The food and the presentation are amazing... the desserts are to die for. We even took pictures from our desserts as they were so beautifully presented... art in a plate. But, honestly,... More
