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

Great food in true Bistro style, I had the saucisson with pistachio, made in house and it was unbeatable. Reasonable wine list including some French wines.

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

Was asked to take my partner there for her birthday and knowing Chef Alain and his previous restaurant ,The Loose Box it was an easy decision to go. 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

There are some mixed reviews of this restaurant, which quite astound me. As it name makes clear, it is a "bistrot", the meaning of this derived from the Russian word Byistro meaning "quick" (from the use of the word by Cossak soldiers who wanted a quick meal in Paris, after following Napoleon home). One can expect affordable and excellent food... More

Bistro Des Artistes is amazing. We have dined here several times, for lunch, and for dinner for special occasions. It never fails to impress.
