Choose the degustation if you're stuck

Choose the degustation if you're stuck (arancini were delish).You won't be disappointed and it's great for big groups. Tables spill out onto the pavement. Staff are patient and fun. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Today was a day of an old neighbours reunion and lunch. We decided on a Spanish Tapas Cafe in Leederville, Perth - Western Australia. The restaurants atmosphere was great! The Tapas were superb! And the Spanish white wine crisp and clear! A great afternoon with lots of great conversation will be repeated again!!!

I have been here twice now and both times were wonderful. The food is excellent, but be warned its not cheap by any standard. The wine list is fantastic and i lile the added touch of imported Spanish wines. Great place to go for a work do, its best in the evening when they have the full menu.

Dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca said that good art has 'duende' - spirit/soul/mood. Appropriate then that our first visit to Duende was memorable for a little psycho-drama. We asked the maitre d at the half-empty restaurant at 6pm, last week for a table for two. 'You don't have a reservation?' 'No -we just want a quick bite. We'll be gone in... More

We were having difficulty in finding somewhere to have breakfast on Boxing Day and whilst driving around found this place open. I wish we had kept on driving. The service was ok, not really friendly, atmosphere quite nice but thats where it ends. My husband asked for a large cup of coffee only to be told that it comes in... More

After reading several reviews we decided to celebrate my husbands birthday at Duende. The service was brisk and friendly and the waitress explained the food as best she could. We selected three appetitisers and 4 main dishes. We are not huge portion eaters but after the meal I could've gone a hamburger. The meals were overpriced and the wine was... More

I never write reviews but I really had to for this place. Myself and my husband have had so many tapas dinners all over the world over the past 6 years. Never have we paid so much for such tiny portions, bland food and not even dessert. The kick in the teeth was the $44 for a bottle of sangria.... More

I had dinner there with five family members. Three daughters and two daughters in law. We had a great night. Nice cocktails, good wines and delicious food. We opted for the $60 a head degustation menu. This was not offered to us, but we asked as we had read about it on the Internet. The waiter had to go and... More

Haven't had tapas since visiting Spain in August, we visited here with fairly decent expectations. The service was spot on, could not fault it. The food was good too, we had a bit of everything; white anchovies, peppers, olives, meatballs, octopus terrine, prawns, pulled pork. Not expensive either but not a cheap night out. Reasonable for the food/service. Definitely worth... More

This is a great little eatery that I really enjoy coming to. It is only small, so tables can be at a premium and a little bit of a tight squeeze. Service is quick and efficient and staff helpful. As the name suggests food has a Spanish influence with the ubiquitous croquettes and Jamon on the menu. However there are... More
