Nice place but expensive

We had a dinner at Friends with my husband on my first evening in Perth. I based my choice of this restaurant on very positive reviews on tripadvisor.

It's become a bit of a tradition in our family to celebrate milestone birthdays at Friends. We had a biggish group on Saturday, though the restaurant wasn't very busy. They offered a table d'hôte menu, five courses for $95, which was pretty good value. From the moment we arrived, there was a feeling of good personal old fashioned service. The... More

What a nice change to have a carpeted room, well space tables and art work. Friends is an older style restaurant that has stood the test of time. They offer a traditionally structured menu however the food has a modern look on the plate, the owners are on hand to personally greet you and they have special evenings which include... More

We were invited to Friends to experience the Wendy Matthews caberet show. The service on arrival could not have been better. We had a pre-dinner drink within five minutes of arriving. When the rest of our party had arrived, we were invited to the table, given menus and a wine list and the evening just progressed along the same vein.... More

I didn't know where I was being taken for our anniversary celebration just after Christmas. I was taken to Friends for the first time, but certainly not the last. We both chose the 6 course tasting menu: each course excellent and very different from the other courses. I loved the seafood and found the rock melon gazpacho, with hot crab... More

The friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere in this restaurant added to the dining experience. The dishes were all that bit different and tasty too including the inter-course canapes.

It was our wedding anniversary. Lesley phoned in the afternoon to check we were coming. We arrived early and sat on a nice sofa that stars had sat on. We were shown to a table with views of the Swan river and a nice sunset. We chose the 6 course menu and did not regret it. Washed down with a... More

We were looking for a place to eat out on our 2nd night in Perth and came across Friends Restaurant as the #1 ranked restaurant on TripAdvisor. So we decided to check it out. I was initially a bit intimidated by the price as it was a fixed 3 course 'Christmas season' menu on Dec 19th, but every dish was... More
