Quaint little bar in the Heart of Subi

We popped in after the Football for a drink and ended up ordering pizza and tapas. Atmosphere was really buzzing and the food and drinks were great. There were alot of people coming in for a meal by the time we left and it was getting very busy. Staff were helpful and very friendly.

After 45 minutes the food arrived, the place was empty but I am survey hey needed the time for the steak and pasta. Very disappointing and no effort made from the wait staff . Subiaco is a great night spot there are far better paces to spend your money. Sorry .

I celebrated my birthday here amongst a large group of friends. The staff are friendly, accommodating and efficient. The bar starts off as a restaurant/casual bar; however, as the night progressed, the tables were removed and the bar became more vibrant and busier. Love love their espresso martini's - best in Perth!!

From the decor, this looks a young and vibrant place to be. we went there using a Groupon that mentioned we will get mains, dessert and a wine glass upon dining. we did get that, just that the choices for mains was limited to chicken dishes only (which was served raw!) dessert limited to tart and drinks limited to 1...

A staff party brought me back to Purl Bar, where I found the ownership had changed. The cheesy music had not but hey you cant have it all right.

The maitre 'd responded to my request to upgrade our BOOKING from a two to a three seat table with a frown. In my humble hospitality experience that means you've just bumped your table income by a third. I received a "I'll see what I can do, but you should have called earlier". Wow, sorry to trouble you.

Dined here with a Groupon voucher last week and really enjoyed it. The food was amazing, the staff were really friendly and the décor is lovely. There was a singer (on every Thursday night) and he was really good, not too loud either, just nice! The voucher was for main, dessert and a glass of wine, beer or cider each,... More

There was nothing to not like about this place. The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. The decor and music were great (luckily for us they weren't playing loud techno when we were there like on one of the previous reviews). The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The only negative we have is that the staff were a... More
