Cute

Popped in for a drink lateish after dinner elsewhere. Very cosy wine bar but with a vibrant atmosphere. The kind of place where you can't help but smile. Extensive selection of drinks.

What a lovely surprise discovery this wine bar is. A delightful and friendly French couple served us with delicious wine and food. A perfect retreat on what was a rainy day in Fremantle, however, with the decor, food and wine, we could have been in France. Will definitely be visiting regularly!

What a surprise- just a short walk from a conference venue, Whisper Wine Bar is managed by a delightful French couple and they offer amazing value tasting plates and a wide selection of WA and European wines. The perfect place for a leasurely lunch..

If you like great beer, fantastic Aussie tucker and proper blokes and chicks to talk to, please stay wherever you are and don't come near this place. You will surely spoil this French haven in the heart of Fremantle. if your appreciations are of fine wine, unique fare and an intimate memorable setting, Whispers is where you are meant to... More

Had a lovely afternoon sitting outside watching the world go by with some excellent wines and food. The owners are French and always obliging in helping you choose an appropriate wine - they are very friendly and make what is essentially a cafe/snack/wine occasions a wonderful experience. We left feeling we could almost have been transported back to Paris!

Discovered Whispers as we were strolling around early one evening looking for a good place for dinner - we stayed far too long enjoying conversation with friendly staff and strangers alike and some serious Calvados tasting with Thierry the owner. However we did leave early enough to get a last table at a wonderful Italian Restaurant Thierry recommended. Whispers is... More

What a gem of a place, we started our night here for pre dinner drinks and entree's. Down stairs is only tiny (I didn't see up stairs) and was full when we arrived at 7.30. Lucky for us a friend had arrived earlier and secured a table. There is also some seating out the front and this was also full,... More

We love this little wine bar, Perth needs more of them. The bar is run by a French couple who certainly know their stuff. The wine list is relatively small, but every wine is carefully selected and tastes great, some i've not heard of, but thats the fun, trying different things. The food menu is really good, again small, but... More

Just like Paris . Great wine and the baguettes are wonderful, Family owned and run by a charming couple. Sit outside and watch the world go by for lunch before going to the Luna for the movies or after the movies, which is just around the corner.

Met a friend for an afternoon birthday drink. We settled on the champagne, which was appropriately chilled. Wine selections looked quite good for a small and casual establishment. Antipasto platter was adequate if pretty unimaginative. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere convivial in a relaxed way. It's a great little addition to Essex Street for a civilised pre-dinner drink or... More
