great local bar

Had some great pre games drinks before the football. Got busy whilst we were there but décor absorbed the sound so could still talk to our friends. Winer and food options were great and staff friendly and professional.

We purchased a scoupon for $59 and was advised that we could not have the steak or fish on the menu. That left us 6 other things to choose from. When we ordered at 7.10pm they were already out of the beef cheeks which left us 5 things to choose from. Hubby had the lamb shanks and I had the... More

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 .

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.

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!!

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
