“what a great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We absolutely loved our evening at friends restaurant. Clyde and lesley bevan lead the way and there staff are so professional. The food was also so spot on and Frederick the chef must be very talented with all the amazing flavour in every dish. The lamb is a must and we will be back soon thanks again.

“Without a doubt the best restaurant we've ever eaten at.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My wife and I booked a table at Friends restaurant for our wedding anniversary after moving to Australia. We absolutely love it here and wont eat anywhere else when celebrating the best day of our lives.

The food is outstanding, the staff are outstanding and the wine is... Outstanding! Everything on the plate is cooked to perfection (We especially like the chefs compliments that come at the start of the meal, and between starter, main and dessert). We were just there recently and the pork belly was just to die for! Melt in the mouth meat with a crisp crackling. The menu choices are great, the only problem is choosing what you want.

Eating here is relaxed and not rushed like you can find in "in and out" restaurants. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and treat you like you are the only people in the restaurant. It's also nice to see the owners walking the floor, and always more than happy to pour your drink and have a quick chat.

The wine list is the best I've seen (I really like my reds), and I can't wait for the day I can order a bottle of the 1990 Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz... Just check the wine list and you will understand. :-)

This really is an amazing dinning experience, and we've dined in a lot of restaurants, in a lot of countries. Of course please decide for yourself... Our opinion is, you won't regret it.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is a really nice restaurant with good atmosphere, food and service. The restaurant is well presented and the people who run the business are friendly and helpful. I have been to this restaurant several times for lunch and once for dinner. The degustation dinner menu was altered to suit my diet and there is never any problem for vegetarian dishes. I am happy to recommend this restaurant.

“great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We had dinner at Friends in May when we got a chance to visit Perth. What a beautiful experience, the food and wine was amazing. We're keep talking about steak and salad.
We were treated like VIPS by the friendly staff and felt very special all night.
The price is reasonable and the view of the river was really lovely.
Highly recommend Friends Restaurant for anyone looking for a special dining experience.
