We had lunch today at Bistro, where is everyone. Only six other people in the restaurant. They have two courses for $47, three courses for $54 or a la carte. If like us you have had two courses, dessert adds on $7, if you do a la carte all desserts $15, same desserts. We had a choice of seven entrees,... More

We went to Bistro des Artistes on a Saturday evening and were surprised to find that it was virtually empty - just us and one other table. You'd think that having just two tables to look after, the service would be outstanding, however it was far from it. Upon sitting down, we ordered sparkling water and wine, then had to... More

Bistro des Artiste has been around for a while now and proves reliable for good french cafe style food and good service. Wine list offers value with some careful choice.

Well, you can have local fame, get on TV, and then let your Subiaco restaurant fall to pieces it seems. We went here the first week of January 2017. Had the crepes as an entree, and they were salty beyond being edible, and I am a salt fiend. The mains, a steak, and the fish. The steak, so-so cut, served... More

2 years ago we had our staff Christmas do at Bistro des Artistes. Both the food and the service were wonderful. 2 weeks ago it was a different story ... Uninterested waiter, slow service, small serves of average quality. I immediately wrote an email to management but they have not taken the time to write back. Extremely disappointed! Sorry Bistro...

We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Bistro des Artistes last week. This is a small and popular bistro facing onto busy Hay St, which can be a little bright in summer for some tables at the front. Parking is not too far away, e.g. Seddon St carpark behind. Decor is clean and the service was attentive and friendly throughout. The... More

Went to Bistro des Artistes for a family dinner. We all chose the "$79 for 3 courses (including complementary cheese, pre-dessert and hot drink with petit fours". - Appetiser. The appetiser was placed on the table with no explanation of what it was, the waiter quickly walked away. - Entrée. Charcuteries board, carpaccio and escargot's profiteroles were all good, particularly... More

Had a very nice meal. Front of house staff needs attention. Was a bit offputting to some of my guests.

Visited for lunch with friends on a Friday and ordered off of the special lunch menu which was very good value. Not enormous portions, but the seafood crepe, beef cheeks and almond and pear tart were all excellent. Service was efficient and friendly and wines were also good value and not too heavily marked up. I will return.

We have had dinner here 4 or 5 times previously, and enjoyed it. However, we won't be going again. The service was friendly but inefficient. Waitstaff seem to specialise in looking busy and walking round a lot while avoiding eye contact with diners. A few issues: we were asked what we would like to order after sitting for about 15...
