In the heart of Essex Street in Fremantle, The Whisper Wine Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic evening or a few glasses of finely chosen wines. We focus on Australian wines but offer a fine selection of French, South African, New Zelander and Italian wines. While you sip your wine, make sure you try some of our French tapas (charcuterie, cheeses, terrine, rillettes, freshly baked baguette...).We are by far the best place to end your evenings (closing at 12am on weekends).Opening days: Wednesday to Sunday

I came here with my companion post dinner for an after dinner drink. I never drink wine, and she adores it. Nevertheless, the bar staff were friendly and weren't shy to recommend a glass of wine. There is seating up and downstairs, in and outside on both levels. Mood lighting, good music, reasonable selection of wines and some bites. I... More

Lovely little wine bar with some al fresco seating. The selection isn't huge (either wine or the simple light food options), but is all nice.

We went to Whisper Wine Bar for a few drinks with friends before an evening in Fremantle. We secured a table on the footpath at the front of the building, but I believe there is a also a small upstairs terrace. There is an interesting, if not huge, selection of wines available by the glass, although there is more choice... More

The place is nice at night with ambient light and a good atmosphere but can seem unwelcoming at times. The servers are a bit hit and miss with their wine knowledge and don't expect any knowledge at all about Port. I've been with friends but its better as a couple for a night cap after a meal.

My son introduced me to this place. It is small but has very nice atmosphere. Talk to the owner about their wines before you choose what you like to try today. It is very relaxing to sit at the upper floor near the balcony, sip good wine, to share lovely platter of salad,cold cuts, bread and butter and to watch... More

Great service and a lovely selection of wine. Perfect ambiance and the marinated olives went down a treat.

The service was great, and the atmosphere cozy and warm. There was a nice balcony upstairs, and the decor really added to the charm of the place. This is a small wine bar, but seems quite popular, and got busier as it got later. Would recommend to anyone wanting something a little intimate. The wine and platters are expensive, but... More

Popped by here with my mother for a glass of wine on a Friday afternoon. It's quirky, cosy and an absolute gem. Loved the unique wine menu and the service was great and friendly. Definitely will return!
