We booked this restaurant out of the blue after many months of refusing to eat out in Perth due to the high costs and very average food being served generally. We arrived at our booked time and loved everything about this restaurant from the minute we arrived until we left. The service was good, friendly and welcoming. The menu had... More

Three of us ate breakfast at the Crowded House last weekend. I must say i was disappointed. I ordered the Cured Salmon. The menu indicated that i would be having poached eggs on a bed of rocket and cured salmon. When the dish arrived it was almost cold and the eggs were just cooked it was almost impossible to eat....

Very friendly and helpful staff. Expensive wine both by glass and bottle. Menu small but included meat, fish and game. The dishes were adequate in size, well presented and tasty. Side dishes were available including the house homemade bread which was delicious. A pleasant dining experience.

Like Lisa C, I'm amazed at the glowing reviews some have given. Yes, I agree they've done a nice job with the decor, but really that's it. Like her I found the service bad, poorly trained, and a bit snotty. Food was pleasant, no more, but somewhat expensive, with the sides being a particular rip off. Wine was rather expensive... More

We were bowled over by the food, service and ambience of this hidden gem. Yes it is expensive, but I feel that it is real value for money with exquisite dishes, fine wines and staff who really know their stuff. Incidentally there were plenty of staff too, so no hanging around for more water or whatever. Remember that the bread... More

We enjoyed our evening immensely. The food is beautifully presented, innovative with good sized portions. The service is excellent, could not find fault with a thing.

We took a group of clients here for dinner and booked the private dining room which was really perfect for our group of 14. The service was very good with the wait staff being attentive, friendly and knowledgable about the menu and wine list. This is somewhere I would recommend if you enjoy innovate modern food that tastes amazing and... More

Paid $95 for rabbit, octopus, 2 sml beers, 1 bubbly. Rabbit was a sausage, octopus was 5 thin slices. Service was surly. Asked if we wanted "bread and butter" as if we were at the pub up the road. Was it extra? no idea as not on menu, and no explanation forthcoming, so we said no. Big mistake as some... More

Food is delicious. Bread is divine. Service is excellent and there is an interesting wine list. I have been there for both lunch and dinner a number of times and it has always been a good experience. It is a bit expensive but then you get what you pay for...
