“I pretend it is my home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Everything about the Loose Box is outstanding in a classic sense. Menu, wine list,service, ambiance. Time stands still when I am there.

It is however a relaxed place, with efficient but friendly staff, and really nice layout of tables. Lots of privacy for couples, private rooms for a group of 8 or 10.

The food is perfectly classic with lots of fussy genius and humour, but of course the menu does not change over the years very much. Yes, there are some new ideas, but my old friends are always welcoming me back to eat them again.

I have eaten here maybe 15 times in the past 8 years, but have slowed down in attendance lately due to expectation that the menu may be the same. I have opted for the more casual Cafe des Artistes in Subiaco which is also overseen by chef Alain.

Each time I return to the Loose Box I feel like I am coming home, because of the high level of comfort. The same wonderful art work on the walls, the same elegant style and especially the cognac liqueur trolley at the close, like a considerate and personal host helping me prepare for my eventual agonized departure.

The Loose Box is a converted house and it feels like a home. Quiet, unassuming, undemanding and delivering good feelings with outstanding food.

“Expensive but a special treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

There degustation menu is wonderful with a sue price which was around $100 per person last time I was there , without drinks.
You need to have a healthy budget to go but you won't be disappointed with every attention to detail your food will look as good as it tastes. Accommodation is also available there or at the nearby fever sham cottages

“A pure delight, romantic and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

What a great resturant for a fabulous meal and definitely plan to stay overnight if you are there for a degustation night! We had a ball with matched wines with our 5 course dinner and having a chat with the chefs afterwards just made the evening.
