An outstanding meal and venue. Hosts made us feel like long lost friends! New to Perth, Clyde provided us with a 'must do' list of wineries in Margaret river. The view is beautiful over the Swan river. Attention to detail was outstanding and knowledge of wines was terrific. We will return and also bring our interstate guests. Impressive.

During our recent holiday we dined at Friends Restaurant which has views towards the Swan River giving it a great location for dining out day or night. We did both (different days of course). On each occasion we chose from a set menu which offered us a great selection in each of the 3 courses. The quality, quantity and presentation... More

I have just been to Friends for my fifteenth dinner and live show. Each occasion has been an absolute delight. Clyde and Lesley are fantastic hosts and always make my friends and I feel very welcome. Every meal I have had over the years has always been magnificent and the staff always provide fantastic service. This is by far my... More

Had a meal here recently, could not fault the venue, service or food, most excellent. However does start at around $300/couple so not a cheap night

We loved our Friday lunch treat with Friends degustation menu, every course was beautifully presented and tasting those truffles was fantastic. Excellent value for money, great service and all around very enjoyable. I would recommend you treat yourself and enjoy the whole experience including the wonderful hosts and staff who looked after us like royalty.

Had an absolutely fabulous lunch at Friends today. Did the Truffle Degustation menu and there was not a fault with any course. Don't fear the truffle icecream, it was divine! Thank you SO much!!

A group of 4 of us dined at Friends last night for the Truffle Degustation and it was simply superb. Every one of us had an extremely pleasant dining experience. Now the food, the soup was delicious and piping hot, the smoked salmon tasted wonderful with great flavour and we all decided on the beef cheeks and it did not... More

I am in two minds on how to rate our experience yesterday. We had booked a truffle degustation via Scoopon and I believe we got excellent value for money based on what we paid. I would do that again. But if the goal of that promotion was to find customers who will come back for full price meals, that was... More

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

Clyde B, Owner at Friends Restaurant, responded to this review

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
