It was a spur of the moment decision to dine here with my foodie friends . We were not disappointed. We chose the set price menu which was fabulous. Our waiter was very pleasant and he was from France and quite knowledgable about the wine and food. We chose dishes off the blackboard menu and each one was tasty and... More

After reading a few mixed reviews I was pleasantly surprised. Booked online for 2 only a few days beforehand for a Saturday night. We had the 3 course meal for $75 which also included an appetiser a small cheese course a pre dessert and coffee with a chocolate. All the food was really tasty and beautifully presented. We has a...

Went for lunch with my wife. The food was great, service excellent and the $25 lunch menu is very good value. It was busy, but our young French waiter was on the ball, knowledgable about the food and wine, and looked after us very well. Good wine list and reasonably priced. It has the ambience of a French bistro. Makes... More

Starting with three and a half stars, the friendly service and lovely duck might have pushed the Artistes towards a rating of four but overall the food wasn't there and all the hard surfaces mean that a busy Friday lunch equals a very noisy dining environment. The duck might have been lovely but it looked a bit sparse with some... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food offered by this reataurant. I had an entree with Iberic Ham that was unbelievable, as a main I had a salmon with ratatouille, also really good. All that topped with a French Syrah and excellent service. My guess was also very happy with his selection. For your Next time in Perth,... More

This establishment is a sign of the times! From Alain & Elizabeth's elegant "Loose Box" in the Perth hills, this quasi French restaurant in Subiaco has slipped into a sign of the times-the decline of fine dining in this town. I suppose with the problem of acquiring, paying & maintaining top quality staff in fine dining restaurants all over Australia,... More

This was my second visit and I was still impressed. The nuances in the menu that align with the the weather/season are pretty impressive and a stroke of genius (lighter in Summer and heavier/heartier in Winter); yet the quality of the food never wavers. Prices are resonable for such quality and guests can choose to not do the whole three... More

I was well aware that Alain was not the resident chef there I was more than confident that his influence would prevail.We were seated in the back room and given over to... More
