Catching up with a friend last Friday, we ventured to this nice little tapas restaurant situated in Leederville. Thankfully my friend made a booking as the place was packed to the proverbial rafters. We were seen to our table by a lovely and friendly waitress who immediately proclaimed she will be serving us for the evening, which I liked because... More

The food here is quite good. A very packed and noisy restaurant - not a criticism, it just adds to the atmosphere. Good size portions, well cooked and flavoursome. Excellent wine list. A fun night out

We went there for dinner with another couple. The menu was very long so it took us a while to go through it and because the waitress came to our table 3 times asking if we were ready to order we ended accepting her suggestion. My choices were croquete for entre ($4 each - it's good by tiny) that was... More

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
