We recently had a most enjoyable dining experience at Friends, for a birthday celebration. The hosts are professional and friendly, the restaurant looks over the Swan River and is beautifully furbished, and the service is faultless. But to the most important thing - the food! It delights the taste buds and the eye, and there are many extra touches, such... More

It is quite disturbing to read a review that has "disgraceful" as its heading. With that in mind I referred to our security cameras to see when this reviewer arrived & vacated the restaurant as the only substantive problem as stated is that they were ignored for 50 minutes for the taking of their order. The video showed that the... More

Thanks to Friends for an amazing evening. We enjoyed outstanding food and service .. We wanted to have a special birthday experience for a much loved colleague ....and we succeeded .....as she said the evening was indeed "memorable". Also the owners - to our surprise - provided a small birthday cake with a candle. How thoughtful. Thanks Friends - you... More

The vista from this restaurant overlooking the Swan river reminds us how beautiful is the city of Perth. Tasty gourmet food, beautifuly presesented, served by professional attentive staff. Table cloths, proper napkins, quality glassware and cutlery add to fine dining meal.. Opulent ambience adds to the wow of a fabulous dining experience. We highly recommend dining at Friends restaurant.

When given the choice of somewhere to go for dinner for my birthday I did a quick scan of restaurants in Perth on Tripadvisor and obviously picked the No.1 rated establishment! I have passed by Friends many times over the years but never eaten there so this seemed like an opportune time to try it out! From the moment we... More

We recently went to Friends with a group of friends for a special occasion. It was our first time at Friends and it won't be our last. The food was magnificent most definitely worth every cent,.

We recently went to Friends Restaurant to celebrate the 20th anniversary of my business. The service was slow to begin with as we were initially given three menus to share amongst,the six of us and we had to request additional menus and the wine list. Once the staff hit their strides with our table the earlier oversights were quickly forgotten.... More

Went there with my partner for our birthday dinner and absolutely enjoyed the food, atmosphere and views. The owners were lovely and were warm and welcoming. They personally came to our table for a chat and we found that he brings with him quite an interesting history in hospitality. Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Ryan & Sheenali

We came here to celebrate my 60th birthday with family and friends. We had arranged a prix fixe menu with three choices per course, accommodating our non meat eaters along with the carnivores. Everything was delicious and so beautifully presented! The crowning moment was the fabulous, and unexpected, chocolate birthday cake decorated with my name and age! Yum! We chose... More
