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

Great wine list, very friendly service, fabulous music, just terrific. I was passing and thought it would be great to sit outside, have a glass of wine on a Friday afternoon and watch the world go by just like a little bit of France.It was delightful and I will be back. Definitely recommend

Hubby & I stopped in as part of our long lunch in March. Only had the terrine & a beer. The terrine was AMAZING!! Didn't want it to end, a generous serve of bread. It was a hot day upstairs was out if the question as no air con, not the most comfortable of seating, we sat out the front... More

We popped in here after a disappointing meal across the road at Nunzio's! My husband enjoyed his wine (I didn't have a drink) and we shared the Octopus tappas which was very tasty. I have only been here twice as I am not a local, but each time the service has been good and the tappas very tasty. Nice atmosphere... More

This is one of my favourite places to have a glass of wine. Located in a repurposed townhouse, the upstairs balcony is a great place to people watch while sipping a cold white and tucking into the delicious bread!

Stopped in here just for a quick drink before dinner. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful on wines. Very cozy especially the balcony upstairs. Will come back and stay a bit longer next time and try some food also.

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
