Exceptional meal and service.

Very romantic setting with excellent service. The meal was absolutely exquisite. The wine list very extensive. The meals were a taste sensation and great portion size too. All round a fantastic night. Will most certainly be back.

I can't believe this restaurant is so highly rated on trip advisor. It was such a disappointment, both times we dined here. Pretentious management more interested in parading around a large truffle than focusing on good service. Terrible truffle incorporation. The display truffle was so large because they didn't put enough into the truffle degustation. Average over priced food in... More

I can't rate this restaurant more highly. The food is amazing, the wines outstanding, but what really sets this dining experience above others is the atmosphere. Clyde and Leslie know what every diner is having and are so passionate about the food and the wine. Their attention to detail is second to none, and all of the staff are extremely... More

Still such a lovely restaurant . Bunches of roses on every table were beautiful. Took some friends for a special night, all the staff were very welcoming and so professional. We were seated at a lovely table . The food was delicious and innovative.

Friends offers an interesting and varied menu with an excellent wine list, and some amazing spirits, presumably assembled by the Owners who are professional Restauranteurs who like to add their own personal touch. Each course was beautifully presented; the belly pork dish was simply superb. There was a good choice of shellfish, fresh fish and meat dishes; the mushroom soup... More

we dined here on a voucher and enjoyed a lovely atmosphere, location and service. the longest wine list meant no problems choosing a suitable glass or bottle. our set degustation menu started with yummy homemade bread and butter followed by oysters, scallops, a shellfish broth and barramundi. our only complaints would be the barramundi was sliced so thinly it was...

You will need to book well in advance as Perth is not over- endowed with good restaurants. The range and quality of food choices is excellent.

I wrote a review over a year ago when I had dinner and a show with Karise Eden at Friends. It was fabulous then, and tonight my husband and I tried the Saturday menu. The food was wonderful and the service of the highest standard. Friends is a restaurant with beautiful views, quality furnishings and a relaxing ambience. It was... More

This was such a disappointing experience! After looking forward to dinning at the restaurant for some time. The meal that was presented to me "Barramundi" I could have cried, fish cut into such thin slivers it was more like bacon under a sauce of corn, runner beans bits of red grapefruit and other minute vegetable fillers. The fish was not... More
