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

Relaxed atmosphere and nice wine

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!

Small, unusual, atmospheric, quirky wine bar with a lovely view from upstairs. The barman really seemed to know his wine and made an excellent recommendation for us. It was expensive but the wine was lovely & the cheeseboard was excellent. Well worth the cost for the experience.

Although the wine and food choices are curated down to very few, all the options we tried were delicious and the staff, including the owner, was knowledgeable, very friendly and eager to make us taste their homemade dishes and wine selection. The house-made rillettes and terrines were a highlight. The wines to match were good. We regretted there was not... More

Great spot to spend the afternoon with friends. French owner and staff, serving wine and platters. Could have spent hours, but a movie awaited. Try the white grenache - a winner!

We love the casual dining and the crispy baguettes. A great place to pop in for a baguette, cheese board and a glass of wine. They are very knowledgeable on their wines and will help you choose to go with your meal
