French wine bar with beaucoup de atmosphere! Sat on the balcony upstairs with a Pinot noir and a plater of cheese and baguettes with cold meats . Very simple but authentic . Blissfully romantic!

This little wine bar is just French perfection, a must when visiting Fremantle. The food and wine selection is fabulous and the service is spot on. We loved the French decor, atmosphere and the gorgeous French bar tenders. Would highly recommend a visit.

Last visited in 2012, and warmly regarded then, I was keen to introduce my husband and mother in law to the wonders of the Whisper's wine list whilst visiting Freo. Memories did not disappoint! We enjoyed exceptional service from the sommelier who is extremely knowledgable about the extensive wine list and passionate about it too. He ensured that we were... More

Perhaps my 6th or 7th visit here and still a great little wine bar. Good wine variety. Food platters are expensive for what they are. Top spot to chill and people watch over some decent wine.

This is my third visit and I'm in love still! The staff are welcoming and friendly. I think the wine is overpriced and it would be great if there were more mid-range options. Food is very limited and simple (cheese, meat platters with baguette) but it's fresh, well presented and was a perfect accompaniment to the wine we chose. The... More

We went to Whisper last night for the first time for a friend's birthday. We sat upstairs and it just had a great atmosphere to it, so cosy (it was also a cold, wet and windy night so that made sitting inside and watching the rain out the window even better). Whilst I enjoy a few glasses of wine I... More

We were a group of 3 and shared a platter of cold meats and cheeses. Very fresh and with the good bread was enough to satisfy our hunger. Service was very friendly and the two women with me enjoyed bantering with the friendly French waiter. Wine list by the glass was good. You can opt to go upstairs or watch... More

In the heart of Essex Street in Fremantle, The Whisper Wine Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic evening or a few glasses of finely chosen wines. We focus on Australian wines but offer a fine selection of French, South African, New Zelander and Italian wines. While you sip your wine, make sure you try some of our French tapas (charcuterie, cheeses, terrine, rillettes, freshly baked baguette...).We are by far the best place to end your evenings (closing at 12am on weekends).Opening days: Wednesday to Sunday
