Fantastic spot off Essex with a lovely selection of local and international wines. I went for the WA Chardonnay on offer which was delicious. Perfectly chilled. Didn't try the food but menu looks tempting. Little slice of Paris in Freo.

Lovely little gem of a wine bar just down the road from Freemantle Markets. Good selection of wines, friendly staff and a really cosy atmosphere. Very pretty little upstairs room with balcony, an outside courtyard or street side tables make this the perfect location for post shopping drinks and a spot of people watching.

This quaint little wine bar is slightly off of the main street in Fremantle and offers the best wine selection! There is a classy atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The menu itself is quite pricey but definitetly worth it for the atmosphere there if you dont mind spending the money! Would reccomend a... More

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

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
