Elegant evening, good value

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend who had purchased a 5 course Truffle Degustation dinner through Groupon. Friends is always an elegant and warm restaurant. We were offered an option with matching wines at $38.50 per person. Well this ended up turning out to be excellent... read more

Went on a Tuesday night for a 5 course truffle degustation with matched wines. Definitely an older age group of patrons and has the feel of an old English country dining room, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Food was excellent and the wines were very acceptable. My partner had never tried food enfused and flavoured with truffles before... More

Anika and Jolte invited us to share her birthday with a special trip to Friends Restaurant, East Perth. From the moment we walked in, you knew it was going to be a special meal. We all choose the set degaustation menu, without any of the extras, though some of us pondered on the Abalone that was offered. The food was... More

1. Fantastic meal. 2. Excellent Service. 3. Restaurant owners very attentive and pleasant during meal. 4. Good atmosphere in restaurant. 5. Relaxing afternoon. 6. Need to plan parking as parking under the Hyatt was very expensive.

Friends Restaurant has a reputation for good food at a price. We went with some friends for dinner on a Friday evening. From the outside the restaurant has the feel of a Chinese restaurant, with red neon lights. Step inside and you get transported back to the eighties! The owner and his wife are attentive hosts and make you feel... More

We visited Friends on Saturday night and had the 5 course degustation menu. 3 of the 5 courses gave 3 choices of dish. You could also have a 6 or 8 course menu but not sure how you would fit it in! The food and service were first class and servings generous. My partner is fructose intolerant and this was... More

No wonder Friends tops my list of places to dine in Perth. Please note I said "to dine", not to eat, as there is a world of difference. From the moment you are greeted by either Clyde or Lesley at the door to when they bid you farewell, you are treated with consideration, courtesy and care. We chose the 5... More
