“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

It is such a treat to go to The Masonry. We went there a week ago when my daughter and her partner were visiting and the food was amazing. I live in the area so have been there a few times and never disappointed.

“What happened?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I have been to the Masonry for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The past two dinner experiences have been disappointing. The bar tender/owner?? should try smiling at customers. He poured us some water and barely said hello. Stood behind the bar while his one waitress ran around serving tables (it was busy for a Thursday). Not sure what happened to the fresh bread they used to serve, now it's orange, salty popcorn. I had pickerel, the only flavour I could pick out was butter. It came with couscous - which was OK and 2 small carrots...good thing I wasn't overly hungry. My huband had the pork T-bone, it wasn't overly great either. Not sure what's going on...we had some really great first experiences at The Masonry, and did give it a second shot but I don't think we will go back.

“Nailed it again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I've had lunch here a number of times now and it's been fabulous every time. The food is very fresh, creative, beautiful to look at and above all tasty. The chef is obviously very talented and the ingredients are top quality. The lamb burger was excellent.
The staff are always very pleasant and attentive as well.
I'll be back.....again!

“Really good, creative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Kudos to the creativity of the chef(s) who obviously have a passion for their work. The black and blue salad - possibly the best salad I've had - pork brittle with blue cheese, who'd have thought! The duck was very good and my wife enjoyed the pickerel. Portions are larger and more filling than they look. Will definitely visit again when in Perth.
