I went to Duende with a few of my family members for my birthday. It had a really great atmosphere. It had a bit of buzz about it but it was still easy to talk across the table and the lighting was relaxing because they had heaps of candles stuffed into wine bottles and jam jars. The tapas were a... More

I have been to Duende a few times before and all has been good however on this particular night we had the female version of Manuel from Fawlty Towers. I don't know whether because it was busy and they were understaffed that this person who was given the job to wait on us literally had no idea of what she... More

We had heard of Duende and decided it was a good place for brunch. The waitperson (sorry I didn't get her name) was wonderful. She helped us decide on our wine which was a Spanish Rose - Rosa de Azul y Goronza - It was a lovely fruity wine at $10 a glass or $48 per bottle. We felt the... More

My partner and I went here for my birthday in March. The chorizo dish was delicious. The squid wasn't as good. My partner, he had an eggplant dish and this was the best dish out of all of them. So yummy. The desserts were very yummy too. I loved the wine selection, I definitely recommend trying their selection of Spanish... More

We visited Duende for pre dinner drinks and tapas. Arrived early and didn't have to wait for a table, prompt service with a good selection of tapas. The place filled up quickly and had a great vibe. Super cocktails, the chilli vodka cocktail was awesome but a bit pricey at $18. Cheese platters are good value for money though. Would... More

We enjoyed a great meal. Service was friendly and efficient. Drinks service was a bit slow but food came out of the kitchen steadily. Food was very tasty. We were a large group so arrived for an early dinner as we couldn't book.

Duende is in the middle of suburban Leederville, on a corner with traffic nearby but we had a very nice lunch, a laid back experience even although we chose to sit outside. We were shopping in Leederville and spotted Duende. It was about 11:15 am but the staff had no problem with us having a drink and waiting to order... More

We were six middle-aged women who attended for lunch during the Leederville festival which meant the restaurant was not packed. We were told no bookings were possible but to aim for 11:30 and enjoy a snack and a drink while waiting for all parties to arrive. Breakfast menus were provided. We explained that we wanted lunch menus - much eye... More
