We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Friends and it was indeed an evening to remember and cherish. The service was impeccable and the food divine. The only negative, which was a minor one, was that our wait person was new and struggled to explain the menu to us. After this small hiccup we thoroughly enjoyed the five course meal... More

It was first time and asked for window table for sunset view - ended up with fantastic table for 2 in corner of window - wine list extensive and you could choose from wide price range. We had a bottle of white and then followed up with small glasses of red from the "by the glass" list - all presented... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for several years and I even enjoyed a New Year's celebration with a live band which was fantastic! Not only is the food sublime but the view looking out to South Perth, the river and even just the traffic passing by is quite calming - how perfect and not to mention the ambience... More

Friday lunch at Friends proved to be a very pleasant experience,with high quality food and presentation combined with professional,friendly service. The décor has an old fashioned feel about it,enhanced by a lot of upmarket and generally pleasing artwork.Views of the river add to the atmosphere,and it's the sort of place you immediately feel relaxed in as soon as you sit...

Joined friends for a birthday lunch here. Lovely view over the river. Excellent wait staff. Every request was met immediately and with cheer. Fabulous amuse bouche and mains. Allowed to bring our own birthday cake, it was served beautifully. The Friends team took all the photos we wanted and even entertained us with card tricks! One of the best days... More

If you ever want to impress a friend, lover, parent of your lover, business associate, THIS is the restaurant to take them to!

From a romantic quiet evening out, to one of their special musical concerts, the... More

I can't say enough about the team at Friends Restaurant. Last Saturday night we again visited Friends, this time for my husband's 60th Birthday. From my first email to the restaurant the service was excellent. Lesley responded promptly and a number of emails followed as we planned the celebratory dinner. We were given a lovely table near the window overlooking... More
