Pure Understated Elegance For For a King

The menu was a 5 course with a choice of 3 for the entrée, main and desert It is not normal for us to go with a fixed menu though this was the only one offered. The food as always was superb and we were well looked... More

Like many reviewers on Trip Advisor we too had a Voucher for the Manjimup Truffle Tasting Menu. The night was absolutely fabulous from the moment we arrived and were seated. We also chose to add the tasters of wine with each course and were certainly glad we did. The wines were a perfect match for the food. The service throughout... More

My Husband and I had an intimate dinner for two at Friends last night. And it really was like being with friends. The food was amazing, as were the wine and service. I'm gluten free but this was not an issue - there were more options on the menu than not and the staff were totally across it, even my... More

Visited Friends for lunch with some friends. The meal was beautifully prepared as was the service of the staff. The food was delicious in every way and very filling . I couldn't manage to eat sweets even though the description was delectable. Will definitely return another time. Would thorough recommend the food

Fine dining at its best and my husband I stumbled upon it after wandering out of the back of the Hyatt on Good Friday evening! The food was delicious and the maitre d' and his wife were friendly and informative and the service was exceptional. A very elegant restaurant with food to match, and an ambience more suited to a...

Very elegant setting. It has been a while since we had a fine dining experience and we loved it. Thankyou Clyde and Leslie for making my... More

We opted for the Best of friends 6 course tasting menu with wine matching. The first 4 courses (abalone, vegetable soup with crab, scallop/prawn combination and barramundi) were all beautifully cooked and presented with excellent wine matched combinations. Unfortunately, the last 2 courses were a dissapointment. The fillet steak was flavourless and the accompanying vegetables below par. The dessert (black... More
